Warmer winter gloves?

It was colder this morning, and even with winter gloves and heated grips on full blast my left hand fingers got numb. Now winter gloves are warm but they differ some better than others.

What would be your recommendation for best/warmest non-electric glove?

I think I am getting old and my Polar-Tex don't cut it anymore.

Try the Klim Fusion gloves. Very toasty!

I second that. They are very warm and kept me dry during some heavy rain.

Zow, those are more expensive than the electric Widder gloves I have. Must be made of magic.

Why not electric? Gives such a broad range of comfort! I stopped bothering with heated grips once I got electric jacket and gloves.

My Opinion:
Vee or V= DL1000 before 2014
Vee2 or V2 = DL1000 2015 to 2019
Vee3 or V3 = DL1050 2020 to?

My Stroms:
2006 DL650: 202,000 km 125,500 miles, Sold
2012 DL650 139,500+ km, 86,700+ miles. Sold
2015 DL1000 New July 2015 205,000+ km, 127,000+ miles.

This can help preventing from cars pulling out in front of you (SMIDSY)

Handlebar mitts if you don't want to go to electric gloves.

I like the Kolpin Geartector mitts. Punch a hole for the mirrors, done.

Here ya go. Olympia 4102 WeatherKing Extra Touch | Olympia Gloves

I have the previous version of this glove. They work great down to about freezing for a multi-hour ride. If it gets down below that I put the muffs on. Oh, and it's easy to find them discounted too!

Best warm and waterproof gloves I have ever owned, there are also not bulky and have the smart armor as well. Also not ridiculous in price like Klim and Held prides themselves on.
