Recommended Posts

What do you use?  I need something I can get used to using quickly.

White River fingerless fleece gloves are the best way to go that I've found. For about $6 a pair I carry a few of them and change them out if one gets wet. Even without the finger tips they keep my hands warm in anything I'm willing to fish in. I have a pair of the full gloves also for when I'm making a run somewhere.

X2 - been using fingerless ragwool gloves for many years now. We fish from ice out to ice up and these provide heat retention even when wet. Having the chemical hand warmers in each pocket enhanses this cold water fishing.

I keep two pairs of gloves on the boat when it's cold...............the same two I use for ice fising. I have a heavy insulated pair that I use when motoring from spot to spot, and a light weight pair that I use when fishing, fingerless gloves have always felt strange to me. If it's really cold, I 'll have some of the warming packets in my pocket.

I like using these winter golf gloves. They are tight fitting and they have good grip when holding a rod and reel. Being from Texas though, I never fish any extremely cold temps.

I was using ice fishing gloves for the first few trips out many years ago. But this morning at just 2 degrees below zero with an expected 20 degree high for the day needless to say I won't be tanning today. On the dirtbike and motorcycle in 10 degree weather I wore leather mittens with fur inside plus those danger thin insulated gloves inside the mittens. These were the only glove setup that worked for us in cold weather. But now we need water proof warm gloves. I'm not sure how warm the ice fishing gloves will be at the colder temps.

X's 2 picked up a pair of these @ bass pro and they are nice. They dry out pretty quick as well. If its real cold I'll wear my old gloves from when i played football. They are pretty thin which allows for tying and thumbing a spool when casting. And put the fingerless gloves on top of these. Waaaaaarm!

I use glacier gloves with flaps to pull back the tip of the thumb and pointer finger. The coldest ive fished is only 25 degrees but theyve held up well and I would recommend them to anyone.

I'm a big fan of Simms' gear and love their Windstopper Foldover Mitt. While you're cruising out at high speeds they're windproof mittens and then when you need to get your fingers out they fold back and out of the way to be fingerless. You can also choose to just cover your ring and pinky fingers or any other combination based on your needs. They're expensive but my hands have never been happier in the cold.

No gloves, I break out the reels with plastic sideplates in the winter.

I bought these on Amazon, to keep the gill plates of white bass and wipers from shredding my hands.

they are advertised to be breathable , but I found they keep my hands surprisingly warm when it is cold out. 

they are now my cold weather fishing gloves.

I think for some of us, there is no perfect glove. I must have poor circulation in my hands because they get cold with anything other than mittens. To fish I just use the fingerless gloves and have to use the hand warmers every 10 minutes or so to get feeling back in my hands. I did try a pair of nitrile gloves under the fingerless gloves this morning with a wind chill of 18 and temp of 28 and got cold hands in 10 minutes. 

 

What I need is thin heated gloves like the socks they make.

As mentioned back in 2014, Simms tends to lead the pack on this sort of thing as long as spending a little money isn't an impediment to your comfort.  I have several different pairs of their gloves that I use, depending on temperature and conditions.

 

Fly fishermen...particularly those that fish cold weather conditions like steelhead have put a lot of thought into this over the years and Simms has several versions of gloves that get the job done...but you could spend $80 on them at the high end...

 

Kast gloves are also worth a look, I'm putting a pair through their paces this fall and am happy so far, though they are more for the runs between spots than actual fishing.

Try some of the fly fishing products, Simms in particular.  I share your circulation issues and these things work, for me.

Thin Nordic gloves with  a couple tips cut off.

 

Butt, toe heaters on the back of the hand where blood flow is increased.

 

If blood flow is increased, you don't need much.

 

Truth be told, I tested electric vest for Northface that superheated the core and gloves were almost unnecessary.......

...and wear a good hat.  Keeping your head warm  is a good part of keeping the rest of you warm.

If you focus on keeping your core (thighs to shoulders) and your head warm, keeping your fingers warm gets a lot easier.

I have a nice pair of Seirus gloves for kayaking. Kinda hesitant to cut the fingers out. Might try cutting slits in them. Also considering Simms.
