I spent 3 hours last week, shooting in approximately 0 F, with 20-30 mph wind. Used heavy woolen mittens that would go on and off easily, and kept my hands in them except to make adjustments. Shot off a tripod with a cable release, and kept the mittened hand in parka pocket, releasing the shutter with a thumb press.
All worked fairly well, except that the weave on the mitten was no match for the wind. Too much time with the hand out of pocket (1 minute) and all feeling in the hand disappeared.
It was good light and bad light, intermittently. Funny thing, as the light got better, the hand got warmer. Adrenaline.
