    Default Gator Skins glove liners/ cold weather

    Anyone ever use these. Apparently they are very popular in the Motorcycle world for winter riding. If anyone lives around a Motorcycle shop maybe you could pop in and see if they stock them and take a look. Might be good for fishing.

    Not familiar with the gator skin gloves. I would recommend Seirus xtreme gloves. waterproof, breathable and not at all bulky. Grip texture on palm, thumb and index finger. The warmest gloves I have found. Found mine at Gander Mountain. Great for hunting as well.

    I checked them out. Slightly on the bulky side but not aweful. Will keep you warm but not waterproof or even resistant. Make a fist and the water will soak right through it. But still an option for when its not raining. The thunb will soak up water from the line on the reel if used while fishing. Thats always been a problem. Cost 50.00.

    Here is one review.

    "I was primarily interested in these gloves for use on those cold, wet, winter days of steelhead fishing on Oregon's rivers. My experience has been that the gloves are warm, tight fitting and comfortable. However, despite being advertised as being waterproof, when using the gloves in rainy conditions I found that they soaked up water like a sponge. I won't even say that these gloves are water resistant."

    +1 on the Seirus gear. They have a new polypro formula that stays warm when wet. Pricey but it works. Well worth the extra $$ as far as I am concerned.

    Gloves are for sissy's, BUT I might have some on in the morning.

    My hands always stayed nice and warm I. The cheap cotton jersey gloves even after there wet.
    Just 2 problems 1the hooks get hung on them 2 if they get wet they stay warm from your body heat but if you have to take them off and they get cold you cannot warm them back up.
