Gloves

Has anyone out there found a glove that is fairly thin warm and water resistant, I'm always looking for something that still maintains some dexterity for late fall fishing and setting up the ice shack and for hole hopping.

I have tried a ton and havent found any Im happy with so I keep using fingered wool gloves with whatever fingers cut off that I think I need. Closest I came was a striker glove but I forget what they were called.

Yep, tough to beat wool gloves. They're relatively cheap and most importantly quick drying, so I keep multiple pairs to switch out to dry when necessary.

My favorite all around wool glove are the ones with all the finger tips cut off. But I have have a few pairs of mitts too, some with flip-able ends and some without.

They aren't waterproof, but you don't have to turn them inside out to dry. Just chuck them on the dash for a few minutes and they are good to go again smile

The best glove I have used is the made by glacier glove, the Alaska river flip mitt. They are fingerless but have the mitts. The are lined with fleece, wind proof, and have a neoprene palm. Having a neoprene palm is the ticket when handling panfish, they really help keeping them dry. I love them for hole hopping. They may not be the warmest but they keep the wind out and thats half the battle. I will put a hand warmer in my palms and that really helps keeping your hands warm. I've only found them on line.

Thread on keeping hands warm

I purchased a pair of Kast Steelhead gloves. They are pricey, but totally worth it for me. I fished several days last week in cold conditions. Hands remained completely dry and warm.

Cabellas made some Gortex/Neoprene glove/mitten combos, kind of like the wool glomit. Those are pretty solid and are the ones I use the most.

Anybody tried the SealSkinz? Supposedly waterproof on the outside and wool on the inside?

I completely agree on the Task glove, I lost my first pair and didn't want to spend the money to replace them but in the end found nothing beat them. Then after a week or so of buying a new set found the old ones in my wheel house under the mattress of the bunk! I would buy a third set if it came down to it.

For actual fishing, the best I have found is the neoprene glacier glove. They are thin, and completely waterproof. They even have a wrist strap, so you can stick your arm completely under water, and still keep your hands dry. I am wearing them in my avatar. They are not the warmest, but I have not had a problem while fishing. When snowmobile, walking, or whatever, I put some big mittens over them. Leather choppers work fine. Another thing that works is a rubber glove like they have at hospitals, and those cotton (or better yet wool) glove liners.

I still like the ice armor gloves but if its way cold then I use the ice armor mittens.

Another thing since I have poor circulation in my hands is a wrist band that holds a hand warmer. I saw these some place then couldn't find them (or maybe I was just dreaming)anyway I made a pair and they help a lot by heating the blood going into your hands. the ones I made just Velcro around the wrist with the hand warmer on the under side of your wrist.
