What kind of gloves?

Recommended Posts

I have a couple pairs I use. I have Arctic Armor X mittens for extreme weather. My normal gloves are Manzella gloves. There are a few models that are similar, the ones I use are called "Head On", and Manzella's are in my opinion the best gloves out there.

Arctic Armor here too. I would buy them again if they had a xxl one. The xl are just to tight on my big hands.

They are nice and warm and waterproof. Great for hole hopping and pulling your house out on the ice. I use them for shoveling and snow blowing as well.

If its real cold and Im snowmobiling I like a light glove under some good choppers with a wool liner.

This is the exact problem I have with my big mitts. The XL's are to tight and they do not make and XXL. But If they did I would but another pair.

I've never tried the Arctic Armor gloves ... Looking at pictures they look very similar to Ice Armor gloves (only they use white piping instead of red).

Are they basically the same glove?

I wear Arctic Armor Gloves when pulling my portable, running my auger, fishing outside when it's really cold, etc. I wore them for most of the deer hunting season too.

I wear insulated elk skin gloves the rest of the time, I like how warm they are and I like how easily they slip on and off.

I always bring a few pairs. I usually just wear a pair of thin cotton gloves with possibly a pair of the fingerless gloves with the flip over mittens, but I usually wear my choppers while pulling my gear and drilling holes.

Ice Armor and Ice ArmorX here, I love the things. The Ice Armors aren't completely water proof, and aren't made for extreme conditions, but the Ice ArmorXs are awesome gloves, I've had my pair for two seasons and they're still just like new. They also come in mittens.

Thats what I do. I was given a pair of Ice armor gloves but other than being waterproof they're not much warmer than jersys.

If my hands get cold I just have a large pair of Choppers I stuff my hands in.

i have ice armor gloves that i always bring with along with my choppers, but for most of the day i am barehanded. i throw the ice armors on when digging in the water and checking tipups then they get thrown back in front of the heater. i would buy another.

I resort to the tried and true choppers with wool liners, gives me plenty of room for circulation. I have poor circulation and 2 short fingers that are really sensitive to the cold if not active so gloves dont work for me all that well.

I would have to agree with croixflats. For keeping my hands and fingers warm I have bought North American Outfitters Deerskin mittens at Gander for $10and they keep my hands warmer than anything. I kid you not for $10 you can have warm hands. I have been outside in -30 weather with these on and my hands stayed nice and toasty.

    • We saw some good bucks this weekend but couldn't quite seal the deal on any of them...my son smoked his second one with the ML this afternoon after talking me in to going out when we should have been packing to leave for home...(: found a big deadhead this morning too...deer were super spooky but saw plenty...time to pack all the hunting gear away and focus on ice!! 
    • I know, you hear about them everyday in the News burning and terrorizing the good atheist folks of Belle Plaine MN.
    • Are the houses built on an order basis only?   How long did your build take from order to delivery?
    • The one I installed in my previous house was the same way. Like Tom said, be sure to watch the humidity levels. When they get too high you can start to get mold growth. I always watched the windows. When they'd start to get a lot of condensation on them I'd turn it down.   Be sure to check the filter at least once a year. I lived in town and still had to replace the filter every year because of buildup on the filter. When it would get clogged the water would pretty much run straight down to the drain in the bottom. 
    • Looks different to me, or probably just the light and shade difference.
    • I still planned to shoot my ML some, even not going hunting.  Pretty much out of primers and getting low on white hots so I swung into the Baxter FF on my way to Winnie for the weekend. They were completely out of primers and had just gotten restocked that day with propellants.  The counter guy said they went through a ton of ML supplies this year, owing the surge to scopes being allowed.  I bought some Buckhorn to try out and will have to get primers later. Anyone with a last day story to tell?
    • i think those jackknife couches are 72 inches but not positive, will check on that.  The back dinette bed would be almost 8 feet wide. Here are some more pics of the furnace, batteries, and hydraulic system under the couch.  Also the Biffy and closet in the front, the stereo system with Bluetooth, some USB charging ports next to it, cabinet for the satellite receiver with all connections tucked inside.  Pic of the outside 30 amp generator plug in and propane tanks.  Has lights over the tanks and entry door.  You can connect whatever you want to the tv, so yes a water camera would work on that.  Hoping to get on the ice next weekend!!  Good luck to all...
    • Meh, I can protect myself just fine with or without a $1000 rifle. My $100 Hi-Point .45 will make you just as dead as that AR. It's more than likely one of those crazy arse Christians that I need to protect myself from.
    • Yea, well down in Belle Plaine you got all those gun toting Christians to protect your ars!
