It's a bit of a long shot, but I am looking for one right hand glove that doesn't keep you warm. It must not be fingerless, it must be comfortable to wear for a long time and made of something thin, light and durable. It would help if it also covered the wrist area and was relatively cheap.

Does anyone here happen to know where I might find such a thing?

It's difficult to tell what is being asked here. This question is ambiguous, vague, incomplete, overly broad, or rhetorical and cannot be reasonably answered in its current form.

It may make a better question if you say why you're after such a glove :-) – berry120 Sep 17 '12 at 10:04
I don't wish to sound strange or mysterious, but for reasons you may only understand if you were me "I'm afraid I cant do that [Dave :-)]" – DanJAB Sep 17 '12 at 10:11
The problem is that as the question stands, a correct answer could be a latex glove, or a thin Nomex glove etc. You need to let us know what it is for otherwise this is not a real question and will probably be closed as such. – Rory Alsop Sep 17 '12 at 10:13
The kind of gloves that are knit but have rubber covering the entire palm/finger side... like what bricklayers use. – studiohack Sep 27 '12 at 17:51
@DanJAB if you think that only you can understand the reasons, it makes the question useless for future visitors. You've had time to improve your question, you've wasted it, under such circumstances I'm voting to delete the question. – Danubian Sailor Jan 13 '15 at 10:41

Gardening gloves are lightweight cotton or canvas. They are designed to be worn in the summer when it is hot. I take a pair canoeing to prevent paddle-blisters and for moving hot pots on a stove or logs in a fire.

Long ago, women used to put on hand lotion at bedtime and then put thin cotton gloves on over that while the lotion sunk in. These are also not warm. I don't know if they're still sold; perhaps a beauty supply store would be helpful.

Latex and other "rubber" gloves feel warm after a while because they don't breathe.

The internet appears to be full of cotton gloves, fwiw. These disposable cotton glove liners look exceptionally lightweight, despite the description's talk of cold weather applications.

Another good option are the gloves distance runners and cyclists use on cold days.

These are what I wear when the temperature drops.

I'm a bit confused; if they don't keep you warm why do you wear them? – Mr.Wizard Sep 17 '12 at 23:54
When you are biking or running a long distance the wind burn pretty badly. They only keep you warm in a wind-breaker sense. – theJollySin Sep 18 '12 at 3:17
Thanks. I cannot run that fast or that long, but I can appreciate wind burn. – Mr.Wizard Sep 18 '12 at 3:18
