Default gloves

Now that the weather is starting to get colder. What gloves do you recommend for those cold days and nights? I'm looking for some that will keep my hands warm and still enable me to cast... nothing too bulky.
I was about to buy some SealSkinz off of ebay but I found some really bad reviews for them, including that they are no way waterproof as they claim to be.
This website is amazing! I'm new to this, but have learned so much from reading the forums and articles in the past couple of months.

You are going to get a dozen different answers to this question.
personally - my feelings on this are to go cheap - as cheap as possible. Like the bulk gloves - 12 for 4 bucks at the flee market.
Unless your highly organized or a bit anal, your likely to lose or ruin every pair you buy or cant find the match.

I buy the ones with the latex dipped wet and dry grip. Most times I use the one right hand glove for my casting finger.
The gloves need to come off for knot tying, and pocket hunting and plug selection - and when they get wet or float away, the replacements are close by in the truck.

Just my feelings. This is just what I do. Not saying its for anyone else.

My favorites are wool fingerless mittens, they are really warm and I can still cast and all by pulling the mittens back, but they are still difficult to tie knotts because the mittens can get in the way

Thanks Jim. You make a good point about them getting wet or ruined and having another near by. Plus I've spent enough money already gearing up for the fall run.

If you plan on getting miserably cold and wet and you need some neoprenes, aquaskins has a pair for about $20 bucks called black thunder.
These are pretty good for the surfcaster and they wont break the bank.

Simms also has the windstopper half fingered gloves for about $25

Thanks again Jim. I'll go with the cheap ones first and if they don't suit my needs, I'll take a look at the Aquaskinz.

I have had the SealSkinz for four seasons and they rock. They are made out of neoprene and are meant to get wet. Once wet the water in the gloves will heat up like when you wear a wetsuit and keep your hands pretty warm

I personally use the Aquaskinz, you wont find waterproof gloves for what we do but if they're made of neoprene, your hands will get wet but they won't be cold. I also like the kevlar strips on the fingers.

I use fingerless polypro gloves from Wind River http://www.thetroutspot.com/Wind-Riv...ve_p_1178.html they don't keep your hands dry but they keep mine warm.

Default Re: gloves

over the top?>??? how's this for starters?
http://cozywinters.com/shop/wg-bhgl.html

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.
