Can gloves make your hands colder?
One common reason for cold hands is poor fitting gloves. Your body heat needs to heat that air to keep your hands warm. And the more air, the more heat is needed. The result is that on cold days your body heat can’t keep up with the heat loss from the glove—especially in the fingers.
