Snowmobile Gloves vs Ice Fishing Gloves
« on: Nov 27, 2019, 12:13 PM »
Does anybody use snowmobile gloves for ice fishing? I'm looking for a heavy pair for pulling the shanty, chasing tip ups, jigging while hole hopping. I'm using an old pair of leather Nordica ski gloves now that are about out of life. There seem to be tons of choices for well insulated, waterproof, leather snowmobile gloves are reasonable prices. 
I looked at the Striker Ice Combat gloves, they seem overpriced for what they are.
I'm considering these: https://www.upnorthsports.com/snowmobile/snowmobile-clothing/snowmobile-gloves/mens-gloves/castle-x-trs-g2-gloves.html

I went on Ebay and got some military surplus glove/mitts. Korean War era. Not much use for fishing, but really warm getting to your spot.
Thank you Lord for thinkin bout me. I'm alive and doin fine!!!!!!

I like to use full fingered wool gloves for non-tactile tasks.

Doesn't matter what you wear, as you will eventually HAVE to take them off to unhook your fish.

Fingerless wool solves that problem. I never take them off to unhook a fish. That’s why I wear fingerless. Full fingered wool works great for everything else. You could even wear one of each for hole hopping. I like wool because it doesn’t freeze into a mallet after handling fish and when it does it get wet, my hands stay warm.

Oversized / waterproof mittens for me. Slip off...unhook fish...slip on. And that's if I use them at all. Unless it is bitter cold, I go without. Keep a hand towel in my suit to keep hands dry. As for gloves, of any kind that are designed to keep you warm...they're going to be cumbersome..
period. They are difficult to wear while reeling...not easy to detect any bites by feel...and they can be a pain to get on and off. jmo.

I was looking at these the other day. They have a zipper on the side to get your finger out for shooting so I am assuming that on a snowmobile that zipper would let cold air in. Probably not just wearing them on the ice.

Has anyone used a pair of gloves from FXR? Popular snowmobile clothing brand especially in Canada.  I know they started making ice fishing suits also.

Good gloves, use them for snowmobiling, haven't brought them fishing.
