Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Materials seem sturdier than previous version,which I liked. New fleece not warm like old version and neoprene material has almost no insulating qualities. The gloves are not warm, probably because there is no airspace (which is necessary to retain warmth) as the fingers are quite snug (and I have slender fingers). Also the slits for finger access are not slits but are cut-outs...holes that have been punched in the fingers, and so let in too much cold external air to the already cold interior. Seems to me someone tried to improve the old product but does not understand cold weather insulation. You need dead air space for the body to heat it up and retain heat. This design defeats that. The old fleece pilled up like crazy but probably provided some insulating dead air space that way. And the Neoprene had insulating qualities. Not this pair. Not a recommended buy.
I photograph outdoor sports. Some people can take photos while wearing gloves, but I'm not one of them. I need my thumb and index fingers free to feel the small buttons and dials on my camera, as well as focusing the telephoto lens (tried with gloves... just didn't feel right).
In the past I've gone without gloves and warmed my hands between plays, but this past FB season I had a few particularly cold, wet and windy nights so I decided to see what my options were. There were probably better gloves out there, but they all cost 2-3x the price of these. While these gloves won't keep my hands completely warm in a blizzard, they are a heck of a lot better than nothing! They do a pretty good job of blocking the wind and keep my hands dry in the snow/sleet. They're comfortable for the 3-4 hours that I wear them. And the finger slits are perfect for my needs.
While I can't speak to these gloves for fishing, I give them high marks for my "special" use.
I bought these gloves along with a pair of Glacier Sungloves and Rapala Fisherman's gloves. I tried all three interchangeably over the course of a week of summer bass fishing on Lake Powell in AZ / Utah. These were definitely the best of the lot. They fit my hand very well. Having access to my thumb and index finger when I needed it was excellent. They also ran far enough down my arm that my wrist was protected from sunburn. My only complaint was that they soaked up the sun's rays and held a lot of heat making them uncomfortably warm at times. I ended up wearing the Glacier Sungloves under these as protection from that extra heat and everything was better. I don't imagine this would be a problem in most other climates and I'd definitely buy these again.
