I ususally bring along my neoprene waterfowl gloves and those seem to work well for reaching into the water

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.

I like to use a pair of wool fingerless gloves inside a pair of chopper mittens.

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.

Neoprene is tough to beat because they are waterproof. Not the warmest though so grab some choppers for "downtime"

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.

    • The new ones don't stay in place very well either. I don't think you would want to put your weight on one either but they work for what they are. Now I kind of seem to remember seeing them at their shop, one the reasons they were redoing them was because enough air didn't go thru them too well.  I think a product right between these two designs would be perfect.Thanks for the reply, 
    • If this happens I will move to Canada but not for the healthcare, just the fishing. Any more bailouts and I riot, we all should, I don't care what they are for.
    • Nah, you and your glorious leader have already shown that you are intimidated by men in tights.
    • Well despite our so so play that last couple of weeks we are still doing pretty well. Really wish we could have closed out that game against Vancouver this road trip but its a long season and we will win/lose games that should have gone the other way many times. Wild are currently sitting 6th in the conference, we have the best goal differential in the west (+16) and 4 games in hand on the two teams behind us. Read somewhere our advanced stats are good too. Dubs is playing amazing, our D is alwasy solid. Scoring is still somewhat of a issue but we are sitting middle of the pack in the NHL so as long as the D holds we should be ok.
    • Those are the 1st gen covers. They done stay in place, at all. Definitely not child or dog proof. I bought the new honeycomb version at the show and they seem way better. 
    • Start one? Bahahahahahaha!
    • Well the teriyaki sticks are very good, I made them to Curlys recipe but with powdered milk (RH1) and more water to compensate. Then I made the pepper sticks but instead of water I used Grainbelt Nordeast, close to three bottles for a ten pound batch. I also added powdered milk, minced garlic from a jar and mustard seed.  What a great flavor! These mixes are proving to be tasty.    I'm smoking 3 loins of canadian bacon on Saturday.    Come on ice!
    • You guys need to start an HSO drama club..    
    • Just hold the bottom of the ducer to your ear with the unit on and if you hear it clicking it's good. If not it's junk.
    • Where did you get those heavy duty hole cover with the holes in them? I just checked their site and don't see them. I might have to stop over at their office today.
