Ice Armor Gloves info

Question

Has anyone used these in the field? Do they keep your hands warm and stuff when grabbing minnows, working w/ tip ups, etc.

Thanks!

I like the gloves. They are not as warm as waterproof hunting gloves that contain lots of thinsulate, but are adequate for moderate temperatures. When you get them wet, they are significantly cooler. I haven't had an opportunity to use them in temperatures much below 10 degrees, but I suspect they might be a little light for the cold this weekend.

I have had them now for a couple of months, and in general, like them. When it's around 0 they aren't the warmest gloves I own, but since they are more light weight than the gloves I wear when it gets that cold you have a lot more dexterity with them.

They are waterproof, and I've never gotten wet hands with them, but when they get wet the entire glove gets wet, but the liner by your hand doesn't, so they get heavier and stiffer than other waterproof gloves I have.

To summarize, I wear them when getting things setup, etc. But if I were going to sit out in the cold and fish with them (without a house) I'd look for something else.. they won't keep you warm when it's really cold out...

I agree with what's been said. I got mine for Christmas and have used them several times. They're not the warmest glove out there when the temp really falls, but they are waterproof and work for average temp days. I use them for setup and run and gun missions. So far, no complaints! They're pretty dexterious (spelling) and work well when using the rod/reel.

hovermn- "Dexterous" I think is the word you were looking to use, but I knew what you were saying smile.gif

I picked up a pair at the Ice fishing Expo down in St.Paul and have used them a handful of times. I've used them on days where temps were between 15-30degree's. Not bad for running and gunning. I think they do a nice job and they do a good job of keeping the hand dry when dipping it into a hole or grabbing for minnows.

Though I have not used them in temps. similar to what we are getting now!

I guess it's not fair for me to say they work great for me because everyone has a different comfort level with cold.

On the other hand, my soon to be father-n-law bought a pair and hasn't been happy with them. He uses them for hunting pheasants because he is still able to pull the trigger w/ glove on. But his hands get cold.

So there you go........

Thanks for the info guys, I wouldn't expect them to be too warm but if it is very cold it would be good to throw them on when outside and having to setup tipups and stuff. I think i would have my warm mitts for warmth.

I may pick up a pair if I can find them on clearance.

      You still have your trailer and place up there? Maybe you should do some summer rentals of it to help pay the taxes and up keep on it? 👍

      The water is starting to slowly go down. From what I can tell it looks like it’s down about 5-6 inches. The wind was terrible over the weekend though. I’m sure many properties suffered damages with Sundays winds. Things are finally starting to head in the right direction but it’s going to take a very long time for things to get back to even somewhat normal.

      Stopped at VC last week as well.  Didn't have pizza, but the sandwiches and appetizers we had were good.  The service was very good.  However, that's the first and only time we had been there.

      Any other info about VC?   Got kid and and fam coming up.  Been a couple years but really liked it.   Reviews on line still good.   Did Mark just hit on a bad night or has it gone down?   Being on west not a place we go often.

      Going up to visit family at Mille lacs 4th of July weekend. Given the current fishing restrictions and the fact that I don’t have a boat, does anyone know any good shore/kayak fishing lakes in the Mille lacs area?

      Spent yesterday afternoon wading the upper croix. Water actually seemed a little low. There was lots of floating grass, so my traditional approach of using a fire tiger jointed rapala was unusable. Tried a whopper plopper for a bit, which avoided floating grass better, but I just didn’t have confidence in using it. So since it seemed like the crayfish outnumbered the rocks, I decided to use a weightless Texas rigged plastic craw. Caught 3 smallies, and a pike.

      Here's the actual water level as of Saturday, 6-25. It has dropped some but still is 4 feet above the rule curve. This is updated daily; it's just too early in the day for Sunday's data to be posted. You can check it yourself here: http://www.lwcb.ca/waterflowdata.html

      @chaffmj, never mind.  I decided to take a cruise on up there today.  Had a couple popple tops in the driveway but nothing I couldn’t clear.  Nice to see the area again.

      Ludlows and Muskego both hit hard.  The Dayton place had a lot of big trees down, not sure of structural damage.  Some say a tornado skipped thru that area.  Looking at the destruction, I could believe it.  I feel bad for those impacted by this storm.   Below are a few snap shots of common sights around the area a day or two after the storm.

      Mike, was there a lot of damage in the Ely area?
