Bad Weather Gloves

Any suggestions of a waterproof/resistant, warm but not too chunky glove for use on the work RIB's
Thanks in advance

I've tried allsorts of gloves over the years & keep coming back to neoprene diving gloves. Get the 3mm ones. Sealskins are a waste of time & money, impossible to put one if your hands are wet.

Have to agree Dave...tried loads and still not cracked it.
Diving gloves are the best of a Bad bunch... Long wristed ones you can tuck under your wet weather gear help...as does more than one pair to change into when they (as they will ) get Wet...But still looking!

I agree with Dave and Maximus, and I'm not even a diver.

Mrs Poly has some thin neoprene (I guess 1-2mm?) cycling gloves which are much more flexible and she seems to like. I notices Aldi selling something similar in green for fishing at one point (which presumably means you can buy an equivalent from fishing shops for twice the money all year round!) with the first two fingers having removable ends for knot tying.

I've been out with snow on the ground with the diving ones, and even holding the metal wheel at 20 knots didn't have cold hands.

Dont bother with Gill Extreme gloves. Neoprene with leather palms. Difficult to get on if hands if they are wet and cold as they are lined (yes you need to take gloves off from time to time) and clumsy as the leather isn't supple.

Ive also tried a lot of gloves. Flyfishing and sib`ing is cold during winter. Seal skin is crap. Arcteryx doesn't handel saltwater. Neoprene is not breathing.

However some US flyfishing geeks managed to brake the code. They developed Kast gear glovs. They are waterproof, keeps you warm and they are not too thick. Also, the gloves last for years. It`s really good quality.
