Default Re: Coldweather fishing gloves

I wear the fingerless wool gloves until it's really cold and then switch to wearing a thin fleece glove as a liner with rubber dishwashing glove over the top... honest
They're thin, comfortable, warm, and completely water proof
The only problem is the color

I picked up these for next to nothing on STP with one of their super-duper coupon codes: Jacob Ash Hot Shot Foldback Fishing Gloves - Neoprene (For Men) - Save 48%

I've tried them on twice, and the foldback part of the fingers is already stating to rip (which is probably why they are on closeout). I may dab them w/ a little head cement or just wait until they come off and make them finger-less on those two fingers, but either way they are really comfortable. And were super cheap.

Does anyone know of a thin fleece glove like simms that has the fold over?

Simms Fishing Products -- Gloves

I have the Simms Windstopper 1/2 finger gloves and unless they've changed things, they are not anywhere near as warm as the wool gloves even when wet. The wool does a better job repelling water than this version of fleece gloves in my experiences. They are very thin, which does make them comfortable, but once wet, they're not that warm and need to be rung out--which is when I grab the wool ones and let the others dry out.

Simms has the fold overs in both the Freestones and Windstopper.

LL Bean has both the Ragg Wool and Windblock foldovers, they're worth a look.

mens gloves at L.L.Bean

If want Simms and you are able to find the older version, pull the trigger, they were much better IMHO. Still, can't go wrong with their 1/2 finger wool offering. I put them to the test last steelhead season and they were tremendous.

LOL great logic there Ard. For the most part, I agree with you but there are those days where I'm catching fish and can't seem to get myself out of the water. Or those days where you have cabin fever and do something ridiculous like go to State College with Chi flyfisherman in the middle of winter, temps in the single digits and fish Spring Creek, just to get out of the house and into some fish

Extra thick grey, wool fingerless "bummy" gloves. I love those things. Warm as can be and stay warm even when wet. I never really need anything more than that in NW Oregon.
