Gloves

Postby D Comeaux » Mon Dec 09, 2013 9:34 pm

I've been looking for a wrist length glove that's water PROOF, that is, will keep my hands dry in a cold rain with good insulating properties. There are just too many choices, and I don't want to get something that doesn't work. Any suggestions?

PM Titz. He had a nice looking pair the other day. Not sure what they were but I remember him saying they were waterproof.

I wear rubber gloves out in the shop. Easier to pull them off and have clean hands to answer my phone, shake hands, ect. I buy the nice ones off the Snap-On truck and have always thought about pulling a pair over some wool military surplus gloves. Dont have a clue how well it would work but I have considered it.

I have some bass pro decoy gloves that are awesome. They are goretex, not neoprene and proper winter gloves

Wait, that wasn't racist was it?

I think someone around here had a recipe that involved one or two pairs of the cheap knit gloves with a cheap gauntlet rubber glove over top and touted their warmth.

I thought so, but last time I thought that, I was wrong. I just attribute all the good ideas to him by default.

Awesome gloves in that they are a knit glove that is totally waterproof. The ones I have are not insulated but it looks like that is an option on some of their other models.

That's what I'm looking for. Ididn't see a camo pair, though? Not that It really matters.

I was looking at stuff like this. Pricing is the same. Just don't know of anyone that has tried a pair.

Dave. the only Seal Skinz I owned leaked, but that was maybe eight years ago.

As noted by others, I keep pairs of these:

and pairs of surplus wool liners that are remarkably warm even when wet handy all season and use them together or separately. Haven't had a cracked hand since I started the practice. And when I picked up three new pairs of those shown the other day, they were still under $3 a pair.

Biggest problem, other than seeping through, I've had with insulated gloves like you're looking at is getting them on when my hands are already cold and/or wet. Such a pain that I wouldn't use them for quick wet work like taking ducks from the dog, which left me with even colder and wetter hands to try to jam in them at hunt's end.

These might be too warm for LA. 100% waterproof and warm. And yes you can put your hand underwater with these.

Ugg, regular gortex gloves, when they get wet, take as month to dry.

I have a thin pair of under armour gloves that are easy to shoot with and semi warm. When its cold ride with a pair of work gloves from True Value, they're lined with wool. They are super toasty. For waterproof... I go with the cheapos from harbor freight.

That is it in a nut shell!!!, along with the glove soaking up every bit of moisture it comes in contact with.!!! I may just put on surgical gloves under my regular gloves, as I've done in the past, and continue using my crotch area as a hand warmer. :biggrin: This always sends the boys into hiding :lol3:

Thanks! I'm looking hard at those. I just don't want to spend the money and have another pair of gloves for the shelf.

D, I bought these gloves before this season and have been very happy with them. I had never tried on a pair of gloves and thought " I gotta have those" until I tried these on. Like other UA gear, and Sitka Gear, they have a great fit without the bulk. I've had to dip my hand in the water when it was 30, and used them to build a snowman for the kiddos. The snow was dry so I had to mix in some water and on both the hunt and the snowman building I've stayed dry and warm. The question now is, how long will they hold up? I'll find out.
