Lasted me 3 years of Ice fishing and Hunting and were waterproof (100%) for the first 2 years. I used to scoop slush out of my ice holes with them just cause I could....lol
Those finally ratted out on me because of years of abuse, so this year I bought a pair of decoy gloves that are all rubber/plastic on the outside. They were $22 at fleet farm and they are fleece lined and all rubber on the outside. They go up to the elbow and are the cats meow for throwing and picking up decoys. Definitely not a shooter's glove, but I make sure to use them only when doing decoys and make sure they are stowed in a way that keeps water out of the inside.
I hate shooting with gloves on, and I'm typically in my boat blind so I just bring my heater/cooker and some 1lb propane tanks along if it's that cold. That heater really extends my day, not to mention I can cook bacon, eggs, soup, whatever with it.
The only shooting gloves I've found that I can deal with are Under Armour and were $25 at Joe's sporting goods. Not waterproof at all but they camo your hands and keep em warmer than the mother nature does.
I highly recommend a heater/cooker in the boat when it gets frigid. You gotta be careful if you have a grassy blind or a dog in the boat but I can't say enough about my heater.
Well I know who's boat I want to hunt in! Why not another pair of the Montana Gloves did they discontinue, or hard to find?
I think based on what has been posted I'm gonna go buy a couple pairs of wool gloves tonight. I have a lightweight pair of UA gloves for early season that have lasted extremely well, I have the skysweeper jacket and it's awesome, maybe the gloves would be a nice addition. Their stuff is definitely more expensive but I would say the quality is definitely there too
