I use a pair of "Canondale" brand gloves made for bicycling that work
great!

Last (Australian) winter I went to Cooma to fly the wave. This meant
equipping myself with cold weather gear (for heights above 20,000ft I
hoped - unfortunately the weather didn't cooperate and we only had one
day of wave to 13,500ft).

Be that as it may, the cold weather gear worked out well, including some
interesting gloves.

These were ski gloves that had the fingers ungloved, but there was a
mitt that folded over to cover the fingers when needed (and held back
out of the way with velcro. I purchased a pair of inner gloves (very
thin cotton) that I wore under these gloves and they worked really well.

In fact at only 13,500ft in bright sunshine I had to take off my
balacva, keep the gloves folded back and open the air vent - I also
wished I could turn off the chemical foot warmers!

There are also thin silk gloves which are very warm. you can wear them
under ski gloves: I used them for my Gold an Diamond altitudes (up to
24,000ft in winter over the Pyrenes mountains in Spain, the temperature
inside the glider was -30°C)
