They issued us just standard wool glove liners to be used by themselves for Arctic Survival training (~48 hours living outside in interior Alaska in December...-20 to -30F the whole time). I thought it was a joke, but they worked really well:

I'm not a fan of wool though, so I use my winter weight nomex flight gloves:

You get Thinsulate insulation while keeping your dexterity. Probably not the best for when it's colder than -10F, but if you consider "around freezing" cold, then they'll work great...
