Cold hands are the bane of any all-weather cyclist. Stuck out at the end of your arms away from your core and hitting the cold wind first, keeping them warm can be very difficult. Big, thick super warm gloves don't work on a bike either, as there is a requirement for a certain level of dexterity to operate the brakes and gears safely, so manufacturers can't just bung a load of insulation in either, so they have to be clever about it.
