Best cold weather gloves

Recommended Posts

Wondering what everyone uses for

some cold weather gloves? Looking for something that is light yet warm and waterproof so I don’t have to keep taking them on and off when handling fish.  Also being able to still grab a rod easily is nice to. Any suggestions ?

I'm going to jump in here and add, gloves that allow you to use casting gear efficiently.  

 

@Ksam1234 unfortunately I haven't found the answer.  Everything I've tried, I've had to sacrifice in one area.  Taking breaks and stocking up on hand warmers and carrying multiple pairs has been the best solution I've come up with.

I've been happy with these ones.

SeaKnight SK03 Sport Fishing Gloves 1Pair/Lot 3 Half-Finger

Pretty thin and lightweight, only exposed skin is the fingers that are really needed to be exposed. Really cheap too when it comes to fishing gloves. I've used them in subzero temps and haven't lost any digits yet. 

 

White River fingerless fleece gloves are another option that I really like and the price is right on them too.

I use the heavy blue ones and they do an OK job.

 

Keeps your hands dry.

 

Give 'em a shot. You can pick up a box of a gazillion at your local drug store.  Just note if they are the heavy ones.

Orvis Barbour fingerless! They’re 100% wool, warm, water shedding, and cheap. PI carry two pairs. They get wet but they still keep you warm. Once they get really saturated, I take them off and slap them on my knee a couple times, and good to go! On a really cold day, that backup pair comes in handy. 

 

I cant wear waterproof gloves. Usually they are cold, and I can’t stand anything between my fingers and my line.

surgical gloves

 

Plus

 

Plaplace disposal toe warmer on the back the side of your hand.  Most of the blood runs on the back side and it really heeps your hands almost hot.

 

Also, anything you can do to heat your chest will also allow for better blood flow to your extremities. I used to test battery heated vest and it often allowed me to get away with very thin gloves where normally mittens would be a must.

Have used the Nitrile gloves now for going on three years and they are awesome.  They tear a bit at times especially if doing a lot of catching but they keep your hands dry and to me pretty warm.  I keep hand warmers in each front pocket of jacket and before putting hands in pocket I dry a bit on towel and life is good.  Arthritis in hands is horrible so was desperate to find something .... this works for me.  Are they perfect....no....but very very good.

I also use the Nitrile gloves I picked them up at harbor freight.

I use the 9mm ones and I think they were 10 bucks for a box of 50.

I think I've had the same box for 3 or 4 years now as the gloves are pretty durable and I usually get multiple uses out of each pair.

 

I like that these gloves extend onto the wrist, it allows me to pull them over the cuff of my sleeve if I'm fishing something on the bottom like a jig/shakey/tube. This keeps my sleeves dry.

 

If I'm cranking or throwing a jerk bait where my hands are pointed downward, I'll tuck the gloves into the sleeve.

 

I will wear those cheapo-stretchy- knit gloves underneath them when it's really cold.

I dont like the bulkiness of gloves and these fit very snug.

Even with the Nitrile gloves over top, this set up keeps my fingers warm and dry.

I tried those too but found that they were a bit stiff for these old hands....but did like the length and the durability.  I've gone to the thinner ones and sometimes go though a couple pair a day.

Keeping your hands dry is key and the blue nitrile gloves work great!

 

I also picked up a pair of Patagonia R1 gloves a few years ago just to try and those work exceptionally well also (little pricey though...).

I've been trying to find something that works for me for a few seasons now without much luck. I started with the waterproof route and like others said they are either insulated and not very dexterous or thin and cold. I might look for some cheap fleece/wool fingerless this year and try the nitrile glove underneath them trick.

I could have used this thread earlier, as chemo makes my hands go numb! Fortunately for my fishing hobby, they kept me off the drug that made my hands go numb for one treatment and it was much more tolerable until I decided to pack up the fishing gear for the winter as my youngest son's travel hockey starts which makes it really hard to do anything due to time constraints.

 

I'll still pick some up for the spring and next fall however.

I picked up 5 pair of these this year after recommendation from someone here. They're not waterproof, but they're quite warm and very cheap. If they get too wet, I just throw another pair on.
