Glacier Glove® Alaska River Windproof Flip Mitt
Having a previous pair of these gloves, I looked at several shops to find another pair, as I have worn out my others over the past 10 years. Good quality and keep your fingers warm

Not up to expectations
After reading reviews I chose these because of warmth and water resistance. After 2 weeks of use I found them not to be at all warm, temps mostly in teens and single digits. The palms are somewhat warm but the lack of insulation in the top means that finger tips are constantly cold and never warm up because the neoprene shell transfers the cold to your fingers. The slit in the thumb that allows the thumb tip to flip back is just a cut out and is always open to the elements allowing cold and worse of all cold water to enter the glove making it totally useless. If that weren't enough,as an additional issue they are very hard to take off because the neoprene is very tight around the fingers and the material does not give enough for easy removal which is important not just in daily use but when trying to land a fish or grab something quickly if you need the dexterity a non-gloved hand can afford. I would have sent them back but the return shipping costs just are not worth it. I'm just not close enough to return to a store so I have to eat the cost, needless to say it will be the last item I buy from Bass Pro.

I bought these for my dad for Christmas. It gets pretty cold here in Arkansas during the winter months and can make fishing a nightmare. These gloves have kept his hands warm running 50 mph on Greers Ferry Lake every time he used them. The only time they didn't work was when he left them in the truck! They are so nice I think I'll get a pair for myself.
