Main problem I have found is the thicker the glove the colder my hands get due to lack of circulation. If you are working hard enough you glow all over like a ready brek advert!!!
When ice climbing your hands tend to be above your head most of the time so nothing gets into the gloves. Most of the goretex gloves with leather type palms are ok.
Remember once being caught in a blizzard and my gloves were ripped and soaked through - hands started to suffer big style so I had a cunning plan - got the bread bags my sarnies were wrapped in - on over each hand and 2 elastic bands - a lifesaver!!!
