Picked up a pair of Simms Windstopper fingerless mitts today. They feel really good on so I am looking forward to trying them out. They was a less expensive pair without the windblocker "technology" but I preferred the feel of the palm in the pair that I got (almost a rubbery feel) to the fleece palm in the other.
Thanks for the advice,
Tuck

I have the Simms Windblocker fingerless ones and used them at dawn last weekend at Sugar Creek Ranch. I was in my float tube and the air was in the low 40s. My hands stayed toasty warm, even when the gloves got wet. My fingers were a little cool, but not too bad.

I like the gloves a lot, glad I bought them.

Glad to hear this. The salesman told me this same thing but I was quite sceptical considering he was trying to sell them to me. I had a hard time wrapping my head around the fact that wet gloves could still keep you warm but he swore by it.

This is what I've found that I like the most. 3mm thick, my hands get sweaty but not cold. I don't remove them unless its a bathroom break and have fished all day with wet gloves but warm hands. I can even tie on a fly with these. I've tried many gloves, getting wet hands in 40 degree water and air temperatures below freezing, theses work for me. I'm going to give scuba diving socks a try out to see if they keep my feet warmer.

I use the Simms fingerless gloves but the type with mitts that can go over the fingertips and thumbs.
Toasty stuff!

I've been using the layer system. First disposable latex gloves, next polypro glove liner, finally fleece or wool fingerless glove.

In the digital printing world one needs to use a cloth glove, much like t-shirt material.....I put that on first, then overmit it with a surgical glove.....hands stay dry and don't build up alot of moisture due to the cloth under-glove

I forgot to add that the gloves I have do not leak cold water in. When they wear out I'll get another pair. I recently had a stocker rainbow poke a hole in my glove when I was handling it but fixed the hole with some UV wader repair. I've been very impressed with these. Now if there was a way to keep the feet warmer. Scuba socks didn't work for me.

In case you are interested, Bass Pro has sale going on for the Kenai Glacier Gloves (fingerless). Neoprene palms and fleece tops. $9.94.

I picked mine up at the Baltimore location the other day.
