Cold Weather Fishing Gloves
« on: Jan 03, 2013, 08:05 AM »
I have a pair of ice armor mitts that I like to use.  I also got a pair of smaller tighter gloves that were supposed to be waterproof but aren't.  Is there a good glove that is waterproof and still pretty tight so i can use all my fingers? I still want to be able to pull them on and off easily.

I have a pair of striker ice gloves and they are real nice. They pull on and off real easily and they aren't too bulky like my ice armor gloves.

I'm looking for something even smaller.  I saw some that were called "shooting gloves" and some called "jigging gloves" they fit tight to your fingers but slid on and off easily.   Problem is that they weren't waterproof.

I like ragg wool gloves. Dexterity is good and they are warm even when wet.

I love my wool gloves.  They go very well with my army surplus arctic mittens. One still needs to do some things bare handed and the mittens warm the hands quickly so one can go back to the utility wool glovesl

I love wool. I use a pair of convertible wool mittens, but my only problem is finding a pair that's well made. I can only get a season out of the mittens before the wool starts to unravel or the thinsulate stitching breaks.

Have you tried the Cabelas Gloves? I haven't but was wondering if others have.

SealSkinz are waterproof and not very obtrusive, but I did read that they became less waterproof if stretched.  I couldn't find them local and the cost for ordering them wasn't to my liking.  Others have talked highly of them.

The last few years I've used Under Armour liner gloves.  Not waterproof, but wicked sweat from your hands, were able to fit under larger gloves and dried very quickly.  This year they wore out from use; I got my money worth.

I since purchased some Under Armour running gloves that are made out of their new storm fabric.  It is suppose to not only wick water away but also be water repellant (not water proof).  I tried them in the sink and they will definitely be an upgrade from the liner gloves.  I'll be testing them out this weekend on my fishing trip.

I have a pair of warm work gloves with rubber palms and inside fingers that work well and are cheap. They are relativity water proof However, they don't hold up that well, any suggestions?

I have issues with gloves as well. I think what I'm going to try is a thin pair of gloves and wear one of the hand muffs like quarterbacks wear... Like this one here...

i have the hand muff and don't like it.   if you want warm fingers then try neoprene gloves like 3mm thick or more thick. the best ever made is neo the same stuff steel headers use for winter waders ;) if they tell you other wise they never been steel heading in these temps like-3*f  etc...all the way to-70*f any ways best of luck...

I found the best for me is mitts with a hand warmer in them. I also wear wool gloves with the fingers cut off.  I need bare fingers to remove hooks and bait hooks too.

I only wear ragg wool gloves. It's kind of a shame after spending litterally a couple hundred dollars searching for a good glove (Arctic Armore, Ice Armor, Frabill FXE Snowsuit) to make a full circle and end up with $8 gloves from Menard's. The others were warm but dexterity was awful. Also getting damp hands in them was a joke.

I always carry a super absorbent towel with, and before putting my Raggs on I make sure my hands are as dry as possible. The otherthing is with the Raggs even when wet they are warm.

I'll Second that....Mitts w/ Hand-warmers. Flag does up, Mitts come off.

I haven't found a pair of gloves that can keep my fingers warm

Just remember you put your hands in a pair of gloves cold, I don't care how good of gloves you got. They will stay cold with out some sort of heat in them.

Your best bet is to get an EXTRA Large pair of Mitts, and pick up a pair of fleece windproof half finger gloves.
Put the half fingers on and then slip them into your mitts for double warmth.
When you get a fish, pull off the mitts and you still have the protection from the elements on the majority of your hands from the half fingers, and can still pull in your line.
The fishing was good; it was the catching that was bad.

My two cents on this - from a guy with poor circulation and always had VERY cold hands and feet. Neoprene will not work. What you need is air pockets next to the skin. I do indeed go steelheading in winter and have great quality 5mm neoprenes. Your toes will still freeze. The best combo for that are 5mm neoprene for your legs, connected to oversize insulated boot foots for your feet. The problem is that neoprene sits too close/tightly to your feet.

In regards to gloves. Wool is by far the best. I've tried everything, money no object. Rag wool gloves as stated by someone above. The trick is to then put your glove into an overmit of some type. I use two, both made of goretex - some North Face goretex gloves, and a MEC brand of goretex mitts. The North Face gloves weren't cheap but i had them laying around but any over mitt or large glove would work just as well I think, as long as they blocked the wind. Bigger and thicker outer gloves means more warmth as well of course.

This combo is great as the goretex gives your water and wind protection and you can remove the outer gloves for more dexterity of for when its not too cold.

I have found that rag wool gloves are harder to find these days - its thinsulate everything. Believe me, rag wool works way better than thinsulate. Anyway, this is what works for me.

The way I lose gloves I always buy the cheap ones. I have a stack of left hand gloves at home I don't know why I keep them the right hand gloves are no where to be found. I wish you could buy just 1 glove for 1/2 price.
