Any recommendations on winter gloves? No mittens! Need some that I can fire a gun with.

There were made as a military glove and sold by Southwest Motorsports (still have their pad of complimentary scratch paper from the first order) before they sold out to Camelbak. I have swore by these for years. They wear well, are warm, and give me great dexterity.

They are excellent all around gloves. I wear them fall through spring, including deep winter. I jump from these gloves to a set of Oregon Research showboarding gloves, if that is any indication of the range.

I commute with them, shoot with the, hunt with them, ride mtn bikes, do yard work, etc. They are fantastic. They are not deep cold sedentary gloves, or all mountain gloves, but before those gloves these are a great next step.

Camelbak Cold Weather Gloves

The pair that I have right now has Camelbak and the SW Motorsports name and phone number. There is also a "military number" CS05-10.

how cold are you expecting it to be?

It's been in the teens here, I wear my mechanix gloves because I have about a dozen pairs.

Flight gloves are warm and thin.

Flawless victory.

Interested in this topic as well. I need something for extreme cold and I have never found a pair of gloves worth a shit.

I have a pair of under armor running gloves that work really god for me. They are waterproof, and are a great compromise between warm hands and manual dexterity.
Link Posted: 12/11/2013 5:55:13 AM EST
The BEST compromise I have ever found--and any pair of gloves that allow you to manipulate a weapon AND endure extreme cold WILL be a compromise--was, quite surprisingly, the Under Armor extreme "coldgear" gloves. I've worn them in ~20F and they did their job quite well. Not overly expensive either, which is a plus (and I'm not averse to spending alot on a good pair of gloves).

I've been looking for awhile. I like Patagonia from the jackets I've owned but can't find good gloves. Arcteryx has some cool shit and I like the lifetime guarantee but I'm not paying 300 for gloves. I clicked the outdoor research link and they are Patagonia prices with arcteryx warrantee. Sold!

I have a few sets...one set of ski gloves for general winter use, one pair of light neoprene steelheading gloves, and a pair of ice-fishing gloves for sitting-there-freezing-my-ass-off situations.

The steelheading gloves have slit fingers, so you can pop your fingertips out to change lures, rebait, etc. Works well for shooting too, but won't keep your hands warm when it's really cold and you're holding metal.

First ascent are the best winter gloves I have found. I'd post a link but I'm on my phone, so google them. Expensive, but worth it out here.

If you don't need very fine dexterity, stop by your local Harbor Freight and pick up a pair of these (don't forget your 20% off coupon! ): http://www.harborfreight.com/cold-weather-work-gloves-x-large-96612.html

40 gram Thinsulate, water resistant, and grippy fingers and palms.

I've used these at work the last 3 winters servicing equipment outdoors with no complaints except to not expect to be able to handle very small screws and the like.

Also, another thread on this topic popped up recently and these were recommended: http://www.ninjagloves.com/docs/ninja_icehtp.htm

I've got a pair on the way I picked up from eBay for about $8. They're not here yet so I haven't had a chance to put them to the test. They're supposed to offer a pretty high level of dexterity, just not sure how warm they'll be compared to the Harbor Freight ones.

Stika has made me a happy camper.

I own:

http://www.lintonoutdoors.com/sitka-mountain-glove-goretex/ - one size too big (my own fault)


http://www.lintonoutdoors.com/sitka-jetstream-glove/ that fit perfectly. The jetstreams are light, but warm.

I was thinking of making a thread like this a few days ago. lol
Link Posted: 12/11/2013 9:23:12 AM EST
You get gloves, you lose one every year and need to buy new gloves, or you get gloves, they get wet, the water freezes and splits seams, you get new gloves.

I do not think it pays to spend a lot on them.
Link Posted: 12/11/2013 9:26:49 AM EST
I have an awesome pair of Thinsulate brand gloves that are the kind you put your fingers thru, but have a little flap that secures over the top of your hand.

And they're awesome. I have no idea where I got them, I just found them in an old jacket when I took it out to wear for Thanksgiving.

I use a regular pair of Mechanix gloves, they seem to work for everything but snowblowing.
Link Posted: 12/11/2013 9:51:40 AM EST

I just picked up a pair at oriley auto parts. I shoveled the driveway when it was -2. Worked great! If you are just standing around your hands will still get cold though. Also, they fit the same as the originals, so if you wear a large in the originals get the large in insulated.

I asked for a pair of Hatch NS430L the Winter Specialist for christmas

Link Posted: 12/11/2013 4:30:07 PM EST
Here in Alaska we wear Bob Allen shooting gloves. They are thin insulated leather and very nice. There is no such thing as a thin glove suitable for shooting that will keep your hands warm for extended periods of time at below zero temps. Unless you take viagra to open your capillaries your fingers will freeze quickly holding a metal object. My pair has been hiding from me so I have been wearing mechanix lately.

How well would these fair in -20?

Just don't get Mechanix if you go the "tactical glove" route. Try Ironclad or Ringers instead. I'm using Ironclad Tac Ops this go round and they're warmer than nothing. Lots of palm padding but I too am interested in a high dexterity winter oriented glove.

Check out their online outlet store.

What about a glove/mitt system

Check out the Arctic Shield Glove System.. Inner glove with outer mitten.. good shooting system
Link Posted: 12/12/2013 4:35:48 PM EST
Cotton inserts in a pair of insulated gloves works pretty good. Pull the big glove off to shoot. Mittens with the foldover top and fingeless glove inside ain't bad either.
