choosing the right gloves in high wind

Postby cagatay » Sun Mar 31, 2013 5:06 pm

Hi guys,
I usually feel cold more than other people do.
Last January during my ascent to mount Hasan (Turkey), the wind was crazy 70-100 km/h
I am currently using Ferrino Alpamayo and it is one of the best 5 finger gloves money can buy in Turkey.

here's an actual clip from my ascent (later, I had to turn back because I couldn't feel my fingers)


When the wind is below 30 km/h my hands are ok (not warm but ok) when the wind increases it's speed my fingers begin to ache and they freeze :o

Should I wear a baselayer glove (liner glove) underneath Ferrino Alpamayo Five Finger Gloves?
or should I wear something like this over Ferrino Alpamayo?

or (the last "or") the liner with 2 finger gloves?

What is the appropriate setup for high wind, especially for people like me who feel cold more than anyone else...

ps: This is my first post here, Hello everyone ! In case you need to ask something about mountains of Turkey, you are welcome.
