Thread: Waterproof gloves that ...Work !

    Waterproof gloves that ...Work !

    After shooting this weekend in Oxford with a few guys off here, can anyone recommend me a pair of gloves that are both warm and wet. I like man am most likely sick to their back teeth of purchasing gloves advertised as fitting the bill. The gloves I had work over the weekend were sealskins and they to were sodden after a few hours of constant heavy rain in the high seat, that surprised me I have to say. I am now erring towards a skiing type gloves as I saw some in a ski shop, by no means cheap but if I had been offered them on Sunday at 7 am in the poring rain I would have ripped your arm off ! ))


    On the bright side I have at last found a decent set of trousers and jacket, Ridgeline Monsoon, the latest version, which is 100 % waterproof for sure and I did not boil in the bag as some folk did with the old version. Note though I made sure I had decent wicking clothing base layers.

    Cheers in advance. ))

    Try a pair of neoprene diving or fishing gloves, you`ll get wet, but you stay warm. Bought a cheap pair when I was on my way out to do some seal hunting a couple of years ago, and had forgotten my regular gloves. It`s pretty cold at sea in January and February, but they did the job.

    If you want neoprene then look at a pair of prologic cammo gloves, they are very good, you can fold back the fingers if need be. I have had a pair for decades and cannot fault them, they will get wet but will be warm. If you go ski gloves then they must be gortex, do be tempted to buy anything else. Matalan/tk max might be a good place to start otherwise ski shop. In prologic you will probably need large, ski glove fitting is down to individual makers.

    You must be unlucky, my 2 pairs of Sealskinz gloves are 100% waterproof???

    I have the green woollen ultra grip type and also the hunting gloves, with the fingers that DO NOT fold back. Neither have ever let me down in some nasty wet and cold weather.

    Sealskins work for me to. Had them out in heavy rain a few times and not leaked in any other part except the fold back fingers but that's acceptable for the design and intended purpose. kept me warm as well.

    There have been a lot of fake SealSkinz out there.

    Amazon recently had a seller offering discounted SealSkinz Activity Gloves. I bought a pair (they were 10 or thereabouts) and they've been great. They seem to be genuine. I tested them (full immersion for 30secs, clench/unclench fist) and they remained totally dry inside:



    I bought a pair for the wife and father in law, subsequently.

    Problem is, the popularity of the size determines the cost: 10-15 for less popular, 40-50 for popular, all from same seller.

    I've just had a look at the place I bought from- the cheapest size is now up to 35.
