over the top?>??? how's this for starters?
FINGERLESS WITH MITTENS MADE FROM FLEECE.
i have sealskins and i have neoprenes and i have cheap fingerless.
i don't know from one instance to the next what i will use.
if it's raining i will use the sealskins and be uncomfortable.
if it's windy and cold those fingerless with the mittens are my choice.
if it's tolerable i will keep the cheap fingerless with me and opt out as i hate gloves to begin with. neoprene makes my hand sweat and then get cold.'
the sealskins do the same but the cotton lining will get sweaty and then your hands can get cold. but i really like them as you can lip a fish and get em wet as opposed to other items. if you buy em in an extra large you can have the fingerless thin fleece underneath and be a bit more warm on those cold december days. i need my fingers always while flyrodding and don't usually opt for anything other than a few pair of cheapo's as if they get wet i can put on a dry pair.
