Gloves

I did some searching in past topics and really was not able to find any information on this specific question on gloves.  Looking for suggestions for an ice fishing glove that is warm, waterproof and still allows for some dexterity.  I have a pair or insulated gortex decoy gloves but when it gets really cold these don't do the trick.  I typically set up the hub house and just use it as a warming house and hole hop even into sub zero temps.  I had some medical treatment in the past that has left me with peripheral vasoconstriction and hence cold hands in even moderate temps.  I realize I may be spending up to 75$ on a pair that meets these specifications but to keep fishing enjoyable I want warm hands.  Any input would be great!

Simms makes insulated waterproof neoprene gloves for steelhead fishing. I don't personally own these, but I have Simms waders and other stuff for fly fishing - they make excellent gear.

 

If you have peripheral vascular problems though, these might not cut it for warmth and you may have to sacrifice some dexterity. In that case, you could do what I do and get some wool fingerless and a nice pair of choppers/striker/ice armor mits that you use as needed when things get really cold (size up so you can stick your hands in with the wool on).

 

Good luck.

I take atenelol Chlorosomething for blood pressure control.  I told my doc that I was having a burning sensation when outdoors in the winter and that no gloves seems to solve it.  He told me to cut the 50 mg pills in half and see if it helped.  It does.  Might want to check with your doc and see if something like that can help you in the winter.

I have some Columbia battery heated waterproof gloves that take the edge off but they are about $150.

Yah, that’s a tough situation @Kettle.  Neoprene are pretty much the trend but they still aren’t magic.  I bought a pair of diving gloves and they’re much better than any standard fishing glove.  

 

I bet those Simms are nice.

 

Try to find a pair that fits well but aren’t too snug, and possibly have a breathable back.

You may get two of these warm and waterproof, or waterproof and dexterity but you may be hard press to get all three as dexterity is hard to get with the other two in a glove.  The best I have been able to do is some Duck hunting gloves which aren't cheap.

Get a set of choppers to put over your nice gloves.  I throw choppers over my regular gloves when the bite gets slow.  Works like a charm.

Striker Attack gloves look to be worth a try!  Just saw them at FF tonight - $45 if I remember correctly.

 

Seemed to be just the ticket; waterproof, breathable, insulated but not too much that you can’t operate.  I usually wear a large but I think an XL would be the right choice for me in that glove.

 

Really thought about giving them a go.  Still might!

This will be third year using the ice armor gloves, first year I used a pair of extreme mitts. They were nice and warm but hard to do any thing with them on. 2 years ago I recived a pair of extreme gloves and those are much better. Not as warm but a lot more movable and I can fish with them on. Last year I recived a pair of edge gloves. Those are really nice to, warm and I can easily fish with them on. I like having two pairs one I’m wearing and the other as backup.

wahoo

I use the Clam Ice Armor--the ones for about $69.  Not great for dexterity but the warmest I have found.  Get a good muff like Cabelas sells with thinsulite and puta few hand warmers inside.  Work well and keep hands moderately dry.

Or, get goretex/thinsulite mists and put a hand warmer in each one.  They slide off easily.  

Haven't tried electric.

Sitka pantanal gloves.  I fish outside in very cold temps with them regularly and they are great.   I have raynaud’s so my hands have very poor circulation.  Not cheap but worth it IMO.   If my hands get cold in those it’s because I’m catching a bunch of fish and need to take them off to unhook lots of fish.

      I bought a Striker snowmobile jacket and bibs at the Red Rock store up the Fernberg about 8 years ago. Really like them!

      I am trying to decide where to go fishing Sunday night?

      Daisy Bay today was much better today than 2 weeks ago, most of the slush pockets have firmed up.  Still a few around and off trail travel is a little to rough.  The staked trail is in good shape.

      I was out on the north end at the park last weekend. The ice was 15" measured. I drove out but the ice is heaved on the ramp itself making it difficult to get over. Even with a 4 wheel drive pickup I bottomed out. Panfishing  was Ok, kept a dozen of sunnies and crappies mixed.

      I ended up buying from Dennis Kirk. Likely will have to go by measurements though as I doubt the stock number will be found.

      My first suit was the Arctic Armor camo combo.  Loved the soft touch outer surface and the bibs were warm, but a little bulky.  Ended up really not liking the coat because it didn't have any options for ventilation under the arms or across the back.  I run hot and it didn't take much for me to sweat with that jacket and then end up being cold.    I sold that suit and made the switch to a Striker Climate coat and Hardwater bibs.  They've been fantastic.  Bibs are more comfortable and less bulky that the Arctic Armor bibs were.  Climate coat is a double win for me.  I wear the liner jacket most of the winter season as my daily winter coat.  The Climate shell has options for ventilation and has always been plenty warm enough for me without the liner as long as I properly layer for the temps.    Found a smoking deal on some camo pattern Striker bibs at the sport shop in Maple Lake this year that had less insulation that the Hardwater bibs, so I now have 2 options on bibs depending on temps.  Many of my friends and neighbors also took advantage of the sale in Maple Lake.  They might still have some options there, so could be worth a call.

      @ mistermojo   I doubt you can go wrong with any of the bigger name float suits out there.  They’ve come a long way since the first models hit the market.   Personally I’ve been extremely happy with anything Striker has put out.  The suits, hats, gloves, face masks, you name it.  All of their items are well thought out and very well constructed.  Pretty much everyone I know has gone to Striker for their first suits and have all been happy.
