    Default winter glove recommendations

    I searched the forum and all the glove talk I found was warm weather gloves. Does anybody have recommendations for winter kayaking gloves?
    I went out yesterday and I has to keep my hands in the water to warm up... not the best option when trying to fish.

    I have tried these out including this morning. They work well. Hands are NOT toasty, but warm and you can switch back and forth with the flip-Mitt.

    When I am on my kayak in cold weather, I use gloves of different types depending on the activity. If I am trolling in a pedal kayak, I can wear NRS neoprene gloves. If I am casting for pickerel using ultralight tackle, the gloves are too stiff. I used to just take them off completely while fishing, then put the gloves back on for the trip back to the ramp. Now I wear lightweight sun gloves (basically fly fishing gloves) year round (Cabelas or Buff brand). I can still cast with them, and they provide some warmth while paddling on all but the coldest days.

    Thank you for the recommendation, I was looking at these as well as the mares 5mm dive gloves for some extra warmth, I just dont know if I can handle bait and hooks without taking full finger gloves off.

    Unicorns, mermaids and warm winter fishing gloves, your pick.
    I don’t yak too much right now, but i do a ton of surf fishing up north, constantly getting soaked. I have found the only way to keep your hands warm is to catch fish, it kinda keeps your mind off of it. I’ve tried Stormr, NRS, Glacier and a few others with no luck. I’m currently using fingerless Glacier windblocks, over a pair of cheap skin tight Gorilla gloves you pick up at Home Depot for a couple bucks. Not a bad combo, but far from perfect, but I can still tie knots and change lures if I need to, unlike most warm gloves. I’ve tried the fingerless mitten flipper types, but I was always blown away how many times I got hung up on the mitten part when tying knots and changing lures, very frustrating during a blitz. Remember, if do go the neoprene route, you gotta a stick your hand in the water for them to work, but I always found them way too bulky, even the ones with the cut tip. One thing I do on the boat, not sure if it would work on the yak, is I have Grundens Brigg jacket that has no pockets, so underneath I wear a quarterback’s muffler. I know it sounds goofy, but man does it keep my hands warm in a pinch. I am sure they make a waterproof hunters version that would be great for trolling on a yak.

    I also use the Glacier Gloves and concur that, while not toasty, they provide enough protection to fish all year. I opt for the Full Fingered Pro Angler version vs the flip mitt. These have a slit in the thumb and forefinger that allow dexterity when needed but better protection when you don't.

    I would also add that I have very large hands and these are one of the few styles that fit me

    Like John, I have tried several types of gloves including fingerless gloves, but the ones I always bring is the light weight runners gloves by Nike...they are thin enough for casting and provide enough protection for all but the coldest days- plus they dry quickly

    x2 on this style of gloves. I have the bass pro version which covers most needs. Ill occasionally throw in a hand warmer in the palm of the glove.
