Default Re: What are you using to insulate your hands from the cold?

I use a pair of wool fingerless gloves from Scotland I got probably fifteen+ years ago. Tough as nails and warm even when wet. I also have a pair of the fingerless long-cuff gloves with the mitten flaps, but it's generally iced over around here when it gets cold enough to warrant those.

Excellent point raised earlier about slime injuries. I notice the older I get, the more conscious of this I become and tend to try unhooking to-be-released fish underwater. The wool really shines there, as it continues to insulate even when wet.
