What kind of gloves?

Recommended Posts

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.

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.

    • It’s amazing to me to look back already and realize 1.5 days around C season time  will be the story of my entire archery season this year.  Just too much other stuff going on AGAIN this spring to make an honest season out of it.   Full on fishing during any spare moments now.   Good luck out there!
    • Here are two more for you leech, but this time the holes were in some red pines up the Echo Trail.
    • No, no it looks like it was carved.  
    • I'm going to give it one last hoorah tomorrow morning. Going to be a quick effort before work but I've got a couple toms patterned pretty well. 
    • Have 2 pair of Costa sunglasses and cases for sale. Very good condition. $80 a pair FIRM!!! Only selling because I bought new prescription Costas. Live near Elk River. 
    • Cool, but that Goldeneye looks a little stuffed stiff. 
    • Here are a couple of pics of ducks nesting in tree cavities. We have a goldeneye and a hooded merganser. 
    • Spring is exploding right into summer across Wisconsin. You would never know that just three weeks ago the Northwoods was covered with ice and snow. Memorial Day weekend kicks of the unofficial start to summer and many of the reservable campsite at state parks and forests are booked. The best remaining camping opportunities can be found in the non-reservable campsites in northern state forests. The lower Wisconsin River continues to run high, but there were signs of sandbars beginning to emerge in some areas as water slowly drops.Universe in the Park astonomy program begins this weekend with program at Blue Mound and Kohler-Andrae state parks.Photo credit: UW-Madison Dept. of AstronomyFields and forests have greened up, and regular rains have kept fire danger low to moderate across most of the state with just a few areas still in high fire danger. Through the spring fire season 639 wildfires burned 1,800 acres; 53 structures were destroyed and another 441 were threatened, but saved.Wisconsin's northern zone musky season opens this Saturday and spring fish assessments are showing they won't be disappointed with what they find, with many fish over 40 inches netted and released. .
