I have tried every type of non-heated glove on the market and my hands stay cold. I do not have Raynaud's disease, but my hands get painfully cold very quickly. Does anyone have any experience with using heated gloves ? I've done a lot of reading and the best brand is Outdoor Research, but I am not willing to pay $300.00 for gloves. Got it narrowed down to about three different brands and just looking for some "real" input.
Yup - Quack has got it right....get some of the half glove half mitten things and put a handwarmer in the mittens part. Spent a lot of cold mornings on ski slopes in colorado and hands-down this is the best way to keep your hands warm....unless of course you have some of @gator 's man-hands ;-)
Just ordered the Cabela's GORE WINDSTOPPER Glomitts .....Taking the gloves off was a pain and then trying to get them warm again was the worst part of winter fishing... Merry Christmas to me...
12/11/18 OK IT HAS BEEN SEVERAL WEEKS SINCE THE ABOVE POST. THE GLOVES ARE IN FROM CABELA'S WORE THEM THE LATER PART OF LAST WEEK OUT FISHING AND THEY WORKED GREAT. HANDS WERE NICE AND WARM THE WHOLE DAY...DID NOT NEED THE HAND WARMERS YET....
I have had a number of cold weather injuries to my hands. I've spent $100s on gloves, trying to find the best product. After all of that time and money invested here's what I do - I put on wrist bands and tuck a hand warmer packet into the inside of each. That puts the source of heat closest to the blood vessels feeding the hand, keeps a steady flow of warmth going into the fingers. I also keep hand warmers in my pockets. When I get my hands wet (like after lipping/releasing a fish) I slide my hands into the pockets for a few mins. That usually takes the edge off.
I've tried putting the hand warner packets inside the gloves on the palms. It works great but interferes w/ the fishing stuff - holding the rod, cranking, etc.
As for gloves, the best gear I've found are the Serus compression gloves. You can get them at Cabela's, REI, or other outdoors stores. The polypropylene material holds heat in even when wet. You have pretty good dexterity with them on. Some versions come w/ a hot pad on the index finger so you can work your smart phone w/o taking them off. About $25.
