    Well thats part of the problem, I would just recommend getting a pair of cotton gloves, or like work gloves that you dont care about and use them. Cause what happens is your hand in the latex glove sweats because it cant breath too well, and then the sweat makes your hand all moist and water pulls heat away from your hand like 2/3s faster than normal or something along those lines.

    I would also recommend layers for the rest of you man, layers are good. Get some thermal underwear, and good socks. And dont forget to wear a hat, their always a good idea.

    i use stanfield thermal wear.. pants and longsleeve.. then a stanfield cotton sweater and a jacket.. keeps me realy warm.
    the gloves thing.. wear your latex gloves underneather a paint of.. " mechanix gloves thats the company name.. you can pic up a pair at like a canadian tire or lordco are any other place that sells tools and car stuff.. there kelvar top with a leather palm.. so they keep your hands warm but you can also have that nice grip from the leather.. and if your having problems with your paint. toss some socks into the dryer for about 20 minets then put your cans in the warm socks..

    Keep them against you body(paint), or any way they stay warm.

    Pocket warmers?

    put shortcuts in your armpits to keep them warm if you use those. ive used them in freezing weather and a ny fatcap and the can popped on the bottom. i got orange paint all over my shoes and i left an ulgy ass tag that looked like someone threw a bucket of paint at it. im not sure if it had somethin to do with the weather or the cap on a smal can..does anyone know?

    I live in Northern Canada...about 1000 miles above Montana. Just wear warmer pants...snowpants if you're gonna be out as long as I am. Go to a snowboard shop and get some Pipe-Gloves...they're thin enough that you've got decent ability to feel, yet warm enough that your fingers won't be numb. Larger jackets have more space to hide cans and markers and shit. Also, don't worry too too much about keeping your cans warm...if you're using the shit brands with more aerosol than paint, the cold will lower the pressure...which certainly isn't a bad thing. That's my 2.869000001 Cents.

    Yeah, Flash...that shit was COLD. I was gonna hit some trains and said "Fuck that..."
