Glacier Glove® Slit Finger Neoprene Fishing Gloves
Durable palm GLACIER GLOVES
Back in the early 1990's I had the original ALL neoprene glacier bloves with velcro closure straps. Problem was they were not very durable and the neoprene finger tips wore very quickly.
These gloves to not go as high (do not go past wrists) and do not seal above wrist with velcro straps. But they are much more durable for handling things and pass for normal everyday gloves. The big selling point is that they are much more durable on the palms and finger tips with a plastic like material.
I bought them for being able to read the newspaper in the freezing cold outside waiting for a train or bus.
Are they as warm? Not quite. I used to have my hands sweat with the originals. But they are far warmer then ordinary thin material gloves
I'm happy. But for fishing I still like the all neoprene jobs better. But that's not what I bought them for.

These gloves fit the bill for summer fishing in Alaska. I didn't think I needed the slit finger but found it very useful. They are not thick & clumbsy but I would say they run a bit small if the small is supposed to be a mens small. If the temp drops below 40 degrees you might want to add a liner. Not sure how long they will last but even if they don't last long they were good enough to haul in a 100 lb halibut!

These gloves are comfortable, the velcro holds well, and the neoprene keeps your hands dry, the only down side is that they are not the best for warmth, and that the slits cut for you fingers are kinda large and if you dont have them open then the cold will get in, so if you dont mind having 4 cold fingers these will keep the rest warm and allow you to keep all your dexterity!

These gloves are great for what I use them for and that is fishing or shooting when it is cold and windy in 40-50 degree weather. They break the wind and keep you warm even when they are wet. On a cold day on the lake trying to get some prespawn bass action they are great. A lot better than any other gloves I've used and I like the removable fingers for using a baitcaster.
