Hey guys, it's winter time, and I have no gloves. I'm looking for recommendations for really warm gloves that I can use for fishing, and also ones that I can use for pretty much everything not fishing related. What do you have, and do you like them?

Thanks!

I really like fingerless wool due to the fact wool remains warm when wet. I use the Simms gloves usually.

Wool or fleece. No need to buy anything expensive either. I have been using a pair of fingerless wool gloves I found at a hardware store for $5. I also have a pair of fleece gloves but I find the fleece to be too bulky and soft which makes it awkward when holding a rod.

Fingerless with wool and flaps to go over the fingers when NOT fishing. Don't get the fleece- lined, they don't dry out enough.

Two pairs are a must, it doesn't matter what the material is . When anything gets wet it freezes and your hands will get colder. Change out into the second pair you brought and it will extend your fishing day. My favorite is Buffalo wool but it's pricy so ask Santa for a pair. Fleece backed neopreme is probably the most affordable and always carry your hand warmer with you.

I find it very uncomfortable to wear gloves while fishing. I generally keep a disposible hand warmer in each pocket and alternate my hands in the pocket to warm them up...

Fingerless fleece. The trick is take them off when your hands go in the water to keep them dry. Dry is always warmer.

+1 to the fingerless wool with a flap.

I also have a muff that attaches to my waist and I can put my hands inside if I'm not wearing gloves. I put a hand warmer inside it. If I'm using the muff I don't even need gloves sometimes.

Of course the downside to any glove but particularly wool, is that they grab hooks. The type of thing that happens when you finally move a big fish after hours of fishing, before you can make the next cast.

I have been using Glacier Gloves for years. I have had several different styles. My current preference for "real cold" weather would be the fingerless ones I have shown. You can ring-out the material if it becomes soaked. They have a wind blocker membrane and wick dry fairly fast. When extreme conditions are encountered (snow, freezing rain, wind chill) I keep a back up pair with me and make sure I can easily access warm pockets. As shown in the photos...a net can help to avoid touching the water. Sticking your fingers into your scarf or hood can help you retain sensitivity.

I might try the bikini warmer option this year...

Has anyone had experience with the Kast Steelhead gloves? I'm intrigued.

The Kast Gloves seemed like the best option I have seen. BUT I know I would end up punching a hole in them...

Just the same, I may invest in them anyway!

Definitely not neoprene.

Really, you dont like neoprene? I will wear my patagonia R1 gloves when steelheading. They are neoprene lined with merino wool. Obviously windproof/waterproof and decently warm. Most importantly, they are 1.5-2mm thick, so they retain alot of your dexterity. I suppose the only issue with them is if you are hot and your hands begin to sweat inside them. However, in this case I would probably be wearing my fingerless gloves if its that warm out, say 40 and above. 40 and below with inclement weather is time for the R1s.
