It would be easier to figure out how to move yourself to San Diego.

Found some great gloves a couple of months ago: reasonably warm, very thin, windproof and water resistant. Best of all, they allow me to feel my Rev handles or dual straps much better than any of the other gloves I have tried.

I found them at REI for $30. They are made by Manzella. Here's the URL: http://www.rei.com/s...xBrand,Manzella

Or just go to REI and search for Manzella gloves.

I should have mentioned the model: Manzella Silkweight WindStopper Gloves. They tried to sell me various thicker gloves but these are the best ones I could find for kiting.

I've had pretty good luck with a pair of "convertible" mittens when it gets well below freezing. These are fingerless gloves with a sort of foldover mitten that stays in place or out of the way with velcro. I fly with the mittens in place and fold them back out of the way to expose finger tips if I have to deal with knots, etc. They do isolate you a bit from the feel of the handles, but they've allowed to me to fly for hours when my hands would have been to numb to feel the handles otherwise.

These are similar to what I use.
