waterproof gloves

Postby aunt betty » Sat Oct 26, 2013 1:38 pm

Hate to admit it but I done messed around and got old. Today was windy and cold. Wrapping up 64 decoys got my paws wet and pink from the cold. Am paying in pain for the ducks I shot.

SO:
Who uses what and why? I need some good, el cheepo, coonass thinking waterfowlers to speak up.
The topic, decoy gloves.

If this needs moved to the "gear" forum, by all means do it mods.

I bought a pair of these last season and I love 'em!

Neoprenes suck IMO. They get holes poked in them way too easily and the seams come unglued.

Thanks swamp. I have some pvc black glives for concrete but they are so stiff and thick.
Will go to Macks in November.
If you EVER go there take a camera to photograph taxidermied ducks u like.
A taxidermist will ask one day..."what pose do u want your duck done in?".
Its awkward. Having a picture and saying, "I want this" is what I would do if I had the $$$.

Are your gloves easy to work in?

About $4 a pair, fold up small enough to keep pairs in the boat, shell box, day pack, etc, and so easy enough on and off that it's no bother to slip them on for quick wet work like accepting retrieves. (The notches I cut in the sleeves let me pick the gloves up so the sleeve falls open.) The green ones have just enough lining to make them much warmer than rubber-only versions, and wearing $4 surplus wool liners makes them warm enough for really cold weather.
If you think I'm wrong, you might be right.

I know we've discussed this before but I do the exact same thing as Rick. Buy 6 or 7 pairs of the neoprene chemical gloves from Ace hardware and 6 or 7 pairs of military surplus wool liners. Stash them every where. Blind bag, jacket, wader pouch, boat etc. Plenty warm down to 20 degrees or so.

Thanks everybody.
Tried neoprene ones with the long cuffs. Biggest waste of cash ever.
Hate to waste $$$ on things that dont work.

there is a difference between neoprene foam and neoprene rubber, pretty sure WFM was talkin about the rubber ones.... :thumbsup:
But yea, the neoprene foam gloves suck!

You have a harbor freight close to home? Black rubber chemical gloves with white cotton gloves inside for a liner. They work great for picking up deeks. Basically same thing as what rick showed. I will send you a pic tomorrow. If you don't have a HF close I will pick you a set up and send ya.

Actually I believe they might be PVC coated. Our gloves look exactly like the picture Rick posted. They come in black or green. Flexible and waterproof, do a good job and are pretty tough. (and cheap)

that's what I have at the camp for running the catfish trot lines. the lines get slimy with algae after about a week in the water and the glove helps keep it off your hands, plus it helps keep the rope burn down while the rope is sliding through your hand. :thumbsup:

I got a couple of pair from Cabela's that have been good. Gortex Thinsulate shooter's gloves is one of them. They run small, and I got the biggest they had. I can slip them off in a second for shooting, but they never got my hands wet picking up decoys.

Hubby has these http://www.gandermountain.com/modperl/p ... rchID=4006

but I think he got them at Bass Pro or Scheel's instead. He usually doesn't wear them but the times he has his hand stayed dry.

I use these http://www.cabelas.com/product/Cabelas- ... l+Products

and so long as I don't dip my hand past the wrist my hands stay dry, I use them every time we go when it's cold. The tips of my fingers do get cold when I'm not moving around but it's bearable.

Them rubber gloves probably work down south. But up north where it gets cold I would use these. 100% waterproof and warm. Got a pair 2 years ago and nothing like them. Just look at the reviews,nearly 100% 5-5. Great for Ice fishing too.

Just picked up another pair of orange harbor freight gloves with the fur inside them. Been using them for years and everyone i hunt with buys them as well. I run the boat with these as well because i assume the cg could find a MOB much easier with orange gloves to wave for help. I will try to find a pic. They were seven bucks. I have those columbia gloves and they are twenty times the cost and half as useful.
