I've been looking at the cabelas gloves but not sure if they will fit. I tried on the Avery pvc decoy gloves and they are really tight on a couple of my fingers. How do these compare or are there bigger sizes out there?

They may not be under $50 but Under Armour skysweeper decoy gloves are the absolute best decoy gloves available. There is no comparison and I have been through every possible option from neoprene to high dollar gloves to snow blower gloves and the under armour ones are the best!

Sorry I can't say that UA has decoys gloves beat. They are all the same glove. UA is overpricing on this product. Midwest makes all the gloves already and wholesales them out. Here. $18 shipped and made by Midwest.

I have to agree. I have these but bought mine at Orschelens Farm and Lawn for about $18. They work great for boating gloves too

Thin ski gloves that I got on clearance while on the mountain in Colorado. Seirus Xtreme is the brand, skied with them for a week and they worked great, used them last season, and once so far this season never leaked once and they are surprisingly warm.

only down side is the cuff that comes up over the wrist isnt fully waterproof.

I have PVC gloves from Gander Mountain. They are great but a bit big. I might have to try the Avery ones. Neoprene gloves are all the same. They leak on the inseam between the glove and index finger midway between the season.

I use rubberized gloves that are used for working with chemicals (harbor freight), if it gets too cold I wear those army surplus wool gloves($8 for two pair at Coleman's supply I think) inside of them. No fancy names to double the price, but go with what works for you.

I've had a pair of these, they get the job done and are way more waterproof than your typically neopreme. That said, I still prefer the Under Armour pair 5 to 1. The PVC gloves are very bulk and don't have much dexterity to them. Try unwrapping a cold strap weight from the keel of a decoy and you'll know what I'm talking about. The UA gloves give you best of both worlds, rubber/pvc so they're water proof, fleece lined so they're warm and still nimble enough to do what you need to do.

I'm not arguing the overpriced part, no doubt they're expense but when you go through 3 pairs of neopreme gloves a year its a wash anyways.

Just my preference, I can see why people like the PVC gloves.

I got them years ago...I remember that they are cut WAY large and they STUNK! Literally...they smelled up the entire garage with a weird rubber/chemo smell

Columbia makes the only truly waterproof glove I've ever owned. And I've been through a lot of gloves!

I've used all the gloves mention so far...and not one works well. Usually the dexterity suffers. (see 07's post) I have resigned myself to using bare hands. When it gets truly cold, the water is hard and I don't have to worry about getting my hands wet; that's when medium-weight fleece gloves work just fine for decoy work.
I might try surgeon's gloves next......

Another vote for the Cabelas decoy glove. A bit large for me but I like that it goes on and off easy and can be turned inside out for easy drying on the register. Warm enough for bitter cold hunts. I have not been able to find better.

Just about everyone on the Maine coast uses these:

http://store.hamiltonmarine.com/browse.cfm/glove-super-flex-lined-cold-resistant-blue-x-lrg-159574/4,15109.html
or
http://store.hamiltonmarine.com/browse.cfm/glove-super-flex-lined-dbl-dipped-rust-x-large-123586/4,13210.html

Great for hauling out lobster traps or eider decoys. Both are fleece lined. The blue ones are slightly warmer than the rust. Triple dipped vs. double dipped, I believe. The dexterity is not bad (rust better than blue). We do clip/unclip decoys on long lines with these on. Not only will you be warm and dry, you'll also look like a cast member of Deadliest Catch ...
