The Cold-Weather Fishing Glove Torture Test – Field and Stream

We put 10 new pairs of cold-weather gloves through the paces to see which would serve winter anglers best

There’s constant chatter amongst devout cold-weather anglers on message boards regarding what gloves are warmest and driest while still providing the ability to cast, feel your line, and detect bites. The fact is that price doesn’t matter as much as you’d think, and a $15 bargain rack purchase may serve you better than the latest, greatest, and priciest five-finger offering. We decided to help save your hard-earned dollars by pushing the newest winter gloves to their limits. To gauge feel and functionality, we cast lures, opened split rings, and riggedrods in frosty 25mph winds. An extreme bucket test in which each pair was worn and submerged in near-freezing ice water for 10 minutes provided the ultimate look at waterproofing and warmth. Gloves were also judged on their quality and construction in addition to their looks and price value.
