I know that gloves (or socks, or clothing, anything) doesn't really make you warmer—instead, it makes heat loss slower, by improving insulation.
I was wondering, whether the converse is true. Let us assume I am outside and both of my hands get equally cold, and then I walk into a warm room indoors (uniform temperature in the room and outside, for simplicity's sake). Would my hands get warmer if I had gloves on, or gloves off?
I'm thinking I should take the gloves off, to maximise the heat transfer between the warm air and cold hands, but I was hoping someone else would confirm/refute this.
