Default Need some really warm foldback mittens

I'm looking for mittens that can be folded back to use my fingers. What brand insulates the best? Oh, I've also been known to winter ride.

Wool mittens are the best. Just try to keep them dry. Had a pair in the military. I don't know any name brands but I would look online for miltary surplus.

What about the gloves they use for ice fishing? Neoprene and fleece lined

I'll be sure to give a review if I pick a pair before long. Hell, I'll pull the bike out of storage to really test them out.

Fleece lined neoprene, as Anna suggested, is tough to beat because it cuts all the wind and water. The gloves as opposed to mitts are also easy to work with while wearing and you might be able to shoot with them on because they are form fitting. It doesn't get very cold here, but I've been on many daylight boat rides at 60mph on the water with temps in the 20's while fishing. Neoprene has made those rides almost pleasant.
