This is for all of you cold weather fishing diehards.
Does anyone have a type or brand of glove that that like and work well in cold, wet conditions.
I'm thinking there has to be something out there that is water resistant, thin and warm. The big bulky gloves can be a pain to fish in and you have constantly take them off and put them back on. I want something thin, and will keep my hands both warm and dry.

I haven't been ice fishing in forever, but I would suggest looking at some waterfowl decoy gloves. I have a pair that are neoprene lined with fleece.... they're nice and form fitting and warm. I think you would be able to function with everything accept tying a knot.

I just picked up a pair of seirus xtreme gloves at sports authority a couple of weeks ago. With 3 cold weather fishing days and a day of snowblowing and cleaning off cars, I am beyond impressed. Not once have my hands gotten cold from them. They are thin enough to still have decent dexterity and feel on the rod. Best $50 I've spent on gloves in a looong time.

I bought a pair of SealSkinz for ice fishing last year. While they are waterproof, they are the most gawd-awful fitting pieces of junk I ever spent $35.00 on. I have some Ice Armor gloves that I like except after repeated getting wet and drying the fabric shrank and split. I mostly use a pair of Under Armor glove liners now. They dry quickly and do a decent job for warmth

Ice Armor Liners are crap. Once you grab a fish and put the gloves one or put them on the ground you are done.

Ice Armor gloves, not liners, have been good to me.

I also have a pair of ski gloves, awesome. However hard to fish in.

I have the Under Armor liners and have no problems with them. Wonder if the Ice Armor gloves are better than when I bought mine?

Haven't read too many good review about the Seirus Xtreme gloves either. How hard is it to make a pair of waterproof and windproof warm gloves?

I have the Glacier gloves and the removable liner. Fit skin tight and they never tore. Had them
over fifteen years. Never used them ice fishing but they worked great fishing up north in the fall
in the coldest rain. So for the extra money and all the years they survived I'd give them a thumbs up.
:yes

I have a pair of ICEARMOR gloves, they say 100% waterproof and after 2 seasons they still are. You can reach into the hole and not have your hands get wet. The fabric then freezes but your hands stay dry. Worth the $50

I was at BPS today and see they have redesigned the Ice Armor gloves from when I bought mine like 3-4 years ago. I bought a pair of their Extreme gloves along with a new ice rod someone talked me into getting.

I been happy with the Glacier Glove flip mittens.

There a fingerless glove, that has a mitten top that flips on / off.
Whats nice, is the mitten top is just the right size if you want to stick a heat pack in there.

After a month of using the new Ice Armor Extreme gloves, I find that I really like them. They are warm and waterproof and I drove my ATV full speed and never felt the wind. I was wearing Under Armor brand glove liners under them so that may make a difference, but for now, I'm no longer in the market to buy new gloves.
