Best Fall Cold Weather Gloves

Recommended Posts

Well, for those of us in the northern tier of States Fall is almost upon us. The mornings have had some cool, crisp air and the daytime temps are starting to dip a bit as well. That means the Fall bite is almost here and with it some chillier water and air temps. What gloves do you use in the Fall when this happens? I remember last year fishing in late Fall and my fingers just about froze, that water was cold and the air temp was around 50 degrees. I would want something waterproof but with a layer of insulation and maybe tipless on at least the thumb and pointer finger for handling line/lures. I saw that Tackle Direct has the Chilley Willey gloves by Fish Monkey on sale for $23.95, anybody use these?

   I use these: https://www.scheels.com/p/igloo-raggwool-glove-mitt/04355221249.html?src=MSH_North&gclid=EAIaIQobChMIsMCjq8nJ5AIVD9tkCh3iTgtDEAQYAiABEgJ_kvD_BwE

   I found out the hard way that fingerless gloves allow me to freeze just the ends of my fingers rather than the whole hand.   😁   When my fingers get cold, I fold over the mitten-ends of these and warm my hands. After a minute or so, I velcro them back and continue fishing.  Works OK except for one thing: don't snag a hook in these .... obviously. 

   So far, I've never found a waterproof hand covering that was worth a hoot for fishing in cold weather. Doesn't mean they don't exist, just means I haven't seen them.   jj

I spent the last few winters looking for winter gloves I liked for fishing, Ice and open water. The problem is you run into a dilemma of dexterity, warmth, and waterproof and you really don't get to have all three.

 

I settled on....the cheapest pair of fingerless fleece gloves on amazon/ebay. They're decently warm, even when wet. Surprisingly not too bad in the wind, you get the dexterity of your fingertips, and they're dirt cheap so buy lik 5 pairs and just change them out when they get soaked.

I have been wearing golf rain gloves for years.  I carry at least 3 pairs incase some get wet.

As long as I can keep my hands dry and not exposed to the air I can deal with the cold.

 

I've found that nitrile gloves work pretty good for me. I was using the 4 mil and that was comfortable down to the low 40's for air temp. I'm going to try the 9 mil black ones from harbor freight this winter and I'm thinking that will get me in to the mid 30's. Anything lower and I might as well wait for ice...

 

A non disposable option are the R1 gloves from patagonia. I have a pair and they are great!! but should have gotten the XL as the L are too tight.

If it's above 25 degrees I don't need gloves. If it's below that temp I don't go fishing because of ice in the guides 

 

Edit: I just remembered a few times 2 years ago when I had to have some gloves, I used the half finger ones with the mitten fold over like @jimmyjoe described

I agree.

 

I wear a pair of nitrile gloves underneath my Kastking Sol Armis gloves in October in November up here. December through March I go into hibernation so no need for gloves.

I use the nitrile gloves too. I've got the 9mil from harbor freight

If it's really chilly I'll wear those cheap knit stretchable gloves underneath the nitrile ones

Do your hands sweat in the nitrile gloves? Is there a thin cotton glove to put on first, then the nitrile over that to prevent sweating?

You summed up the problem well. I do pretty much the same thing, except I wear a pair of cheap thin cotton utility gloves underneath when it gets really cold. They're like $1/pair, so if one gets wet, I just pull out another one. I can do almost anything but tie a knot with them on. I can't tie a knot with any kind of gloves.
