Ice fishing gloves?
« on: Feb 02, 2008, 04:16 PM »
Does anybody know of any good ice fishing gloves?  I need gloves that are warm and waterproof but they also need to fit tightly around my hand so that I can easily unhook and handle fish.

I have not found any. I have to take gloves off when handeling hooks. Warmth and bulk seam to go hand in hand  :-\

I've had the same quest for years, and I recently found an answer (not the answer, but an answer, anyway). I always just had a pair of good mittens that I would slip on if I didn't need my hands. When jigging or handleing fish, I just went commando.  I recently went to Cabela's and found a pair of their fishing glo-mits.  They are perfect so far this year. They are light weight, the backs are wind proof fleece, the palms are neoprene, the fingers AND thumb fold back to expose your finger tips, and best of all, CHEAP. I think I paid $15. I still go camando most of the time, but when I need to, I put these on and have had no problems yet this year.

Here's a link: http://www.cabelas.com/cabelas/en/templates/product/standard-item.jsp?id=0047749960442a&navCount=0&podId=0047749960442&parentId=cat601373&masterpathid=&navAction=jump&cmCat=0209_d_gloves-search_redir&catalogCode=XH&rid=&parentType=index&indexId=cat601373&hasJS=true

Give'em a shot

I bought Ice Armor gloves earlier this year and they work very well.  So well that I bought a pair of Ice Armor Mittens also.  They are REALLY warm.  Now I see that they have an even warmer version gloves and mittens that have gauntlets that go up your arm and have pockets for hand warmers.  Good idea, how come no one else has thought of that??

Those WindShear gloves look like the kind of thing that I want but are they waterproof?

I like that these gloves are made especially for ice fishing.  They seem a little bulky, however.  I have short, pudgy fingers so I don't know that I could unhook a fish without taking them off.  Do you have to take them off?

Hey Hardcore,

I buy neoprene gloves, they are cheap, waterproof and mold well to my hands so im not super clumsy with tip up line or handling fish.  Problem is that they don't breath so my hands get sweaty pretty quick.  So i stick them in my pockets and put them on if i need to use them.  other than that i keep my hands in my pockets to keep warm.

You can find them just about anywhere and the are pretty reasonably priced.  ~20.00

I also have short stubby fingers.  I have the Ice Armor gloves with the pockets for the hand warmers,and feel that they are the best gloves for ice fishing I have ever had however they aren't as warm as mittens and don't feel any glove can be.  I do need to remove the gloves to take off a fish.I'm sure some people won't need to.

I AGREE, I bought a pair of the Ice Armor Mittens for my son, I like them so much I did not want to give them up, so I bought him another pair. I found them at Bean's for $29.95, Dick Sporting Goods had them for $39.95. Sometimes they are to WARM.

I also use a pair of fingerless gloves that you can put hand warmers in, they work Great. I bought them at Beans, they were less then $20.00 a couple of years ago.

What is waterproof, really? I always carry a towel, and let's face it, if you do the arm-plunge, you're gonna get wet. The palms are neo, and thus water proof, the backs are wind "proof", but, your fingers are exposed, which means if you submerge them, you are wet.

What they are is a great compromise. 15 bucks is worth it.

The trick is SURGICAL GLOVES. They allow to handle bait, hooks etc., and most importantly they keep your hands DRY! After you are done setting your tip up or baiting the hook, put your mittens or whatever you have back on. And your hands won't get dry and cracked. I am serious besides titanium leaders this is the best trick I have learned in 10 years.

I think you are looking for Atlantis, No gloves will ever be as good as going "commando" (as pesto put it  ;D)  The problem is while certain gloves give you dexterity, and others give you warmth none will ever give you feel which is what i need to tie a good knot, handle fish, and fight fish. But their are compromises.  

I personally think the best thing to do is carry multiple pairs of gloves.  I carry the HT Mits that are made of rubber for warmth.   your fingers are useless in them as they are stiffer than a (you can finish the sentence) but they are warm as can be.  I also carry 2 pairs of the chilly grip gloves being sold in the for sale section.  you get some good finger movement in those and they are some what warm.

The ice armour gloves are awsome, i plan on buying a pair at somepoint but i am also cheap. They are the best compromise i have come across but still are not perfect.

I use gloves for the trip out and the trip back. No gloves while fishing. Ranks up there with taking a shower with a raincoat on.

I found some gloves that look really good.  They are in the Cabela's Master Spring Catalog that just came out.  They are fleece lined neoprene gloves.  They look perfect!

i use wool mitten/gloves. the mitten folds back to expose you finger tips, and the thumb folds back. i still remove them and tuck them in my coat when i handle bait or get a flag. this way they stay warm, even if wet. i keep 2 pairs with me. ;D

Last season I purchased Lindy X-Treme Conditions fish handling gloves. I was able to use them maybe a dozen times .. including this season. So far I have been impressed with them but they are pricey. These are just another option ... here's a link : Gloves
