Best waterproof fishing glove

Recommended Posts

Looking for a good waterproof glove or somewhat waterproof I guess. When it got  cold I bought some cabelas neoprene gloves but they didn’t work that well.. my hands still got really cold when I went to grab a fish and got damp. I was thinking maybe gore Tex gloves or some other brand because I know neoprene is supposed to be waterproof and insulated but these were not. Even if they are fingerless but warm and stay dry would be nice. I’m not dunking my hands in the water but enough to keep dry and warm when lipping a fish would be nice

I haven't found 'the perfect' glove yet either.

I use a few different pairs; Neoprene, wind stopper & wool. 

There always seems t be some sacrifice.

Super Dry - lose dexterity.

Super Dry - lose dexterity.

Has dexterity - but is not warm or dry.

Quality wool retains warmth when wet which makes it an option. 

Even fingerless Wool is usually decent.

Seen guys wear latex under fingerless wool gloves a few times.

Never tried it - but there were out there.

Until the water warms up, I wear 3M Thinsulate fingerless gloves over nitrile exam gloves...you know, the ones the doc wears when he/she is.... ya. The nitrile ones keep the water from actually contacting the skin...which is where most of the heat loss occurs...while still allowing me full dexterity for casting, retrieving and even changing lures.

I wear latex gloves, under fingerless gloves, wool - neoprene - whatever you want.

They're thin enough you can still tie knots, thumb your baitcaster, etc.

Get the black ones, the thicker ones, typically in an automotive department of some stores. Walmart, Rural King, etc.

Why black? If the sun is out, it will help to warm your hands a little more. Every little bit of heat helps.

Stuff a hot hands warmer (little one) under the glove, forehand side.

I really liked the wind stopper gloves , to bad they can’t make them waterproof. Or I wonder if you could buy some waterproof spray and coat them

Here in SoCal we use our gloves to protect our hands from sunburn so I might not be of much help.

 

Have you guys checked out gloves for bikers and bicyclers? I'm sure there's waterproof options available that would also offer some protection from the cold. Comes down to how cold is cold.

Coldest I fish is probably around 38 degrees in mornings and 40s in afternoon. Like in a few weeks I thunk the ice will be thawed but will still be like 47 during the day

I continue to look for the perfect glove but I have tried a few and this one seems to be the best so far.  For me, a glove has to be tight and thin so you can feel it when a fish hits, waterproof/windproof and warm.  This pare does all that but yet, I want a pair like it with removable fingers or a flip back mitten to cover my exposed fingers.

There are also these but I found that they are great for warmth but are not that waterproof.  If you get the fabric in the mitten wet, you're done for the day.

I like them.  I was into photography years ago and had a pair like these.  They only thing with neoprene years ago was it made your hands sweat not because of the warmth but because they did not breath.  In the end, your hands could get dangerously cold depending on the outside temp.  Of course, neoprene has improved greatly in the past 20+ years since I had a pair.

I have a pair of glacier gloves like that. Don't wear them much for the reason that fish tank mentioned. 

Thanks though !

I thought about buying these and maybe spraying them with the Nikwax waterproof spray or the TW stuff.

Tell me when you find it because I still haven't. The issue is a completely waterproof glove either has no insulation and is cold anyways, or has too much insulation and doesn't have the necessary dexterity. The closest I found were some waterproof gloves from Kastgear. They sell a couple different types including some expensive ones aimed at guys that steelhead fish freezing cold streams. I got the cheaper pair which are amazingly waterproof but not that warm. 

 

You want to know what I finally settled on this year and was pretty happy with...$3 fingerless wool gloves. They stay reasonably warm even when wet, had the necessary dexterity and are so cheap I can carry 3 or 4 pairs with me for when they get slimed or wet. Then if it's really cold I'll shove my hands in my pockets with some handwarmers for a few minutes to warm back up. I also recommend wearing tight fitting long sleeves and keeping a couple handwarmers around your arteries (I think they warn against direct skin contact, just be careful).

Found some gloves that feel awesome at Walmart in clearance for $5. Bought 3 pairs to rotate them out. They were in the hunting section with clearance gloves, gaiters, hats, thermal wear, etc.

I too wear the Nitrile in black and the 3 mil.  Awesome and have worn for about three years now.  Five mil is a bit stiff for these ol hands but three is good and holds up well.  When really really cold will put a pair of light finger less over them.  They are amazing....
