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.

Iīve 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.

I'll be in the minority here and recommend Sealskinz Ultra Grip gloves. I've only used them for one season and following the comments on here I'll be interested to see how they continue to cope.

The clue is "Bad weather"...
Most will do a Job on a Chilly Crisp Autumnal day....Extended period of COLD Rough and WET is the Test

Hi ,
I've tried numerous makes and styles.
I have a pair of Gill things ( like ski gloves ) that I've used on and off for 10 years as well as almost everything else on the market.
Everything gets wet in the end.
My most successful pairing has been sealskin with a liner which solves the problem of putting them on with wet hands.
Good luck

I have found that wearing a pair of thin Merino Wool under gloves do help quite a bit...they help keep hands warm even if/when they do get wet....
Not a fan of Sealskins though.

The dinghy kids who spend all winter squad training seem to have adopted wearing summer full fingered dinghy gloves (some have 1mm neoprene in them) with a pair on nitrile surgical gloves underneath. They say keeping the fingers dry makes a difference. So the fingers are dry but you trap water between neoprene and the nitrile and heat it up with hands...

They are in and out the water more than most RIBBERs will be...

It was an old way. They used to do that up here when they got scaldders on their hands the only difference was your mate had to pi££ on your hands!!! Now that's mates!!

+1 for surgical gloves I dived 3 German winters in the 90s wearing them 3 MM neoprene are good I use fur lined rubber gloves when it's really cold I also carry hand warmers. You can also buy electrically heated gloves not tried them.
