Default Looking for good, useable ice fishing Gloves

Hey all - anybody have their own suggestions or recommendations on some decent, warm, ice fishing gloves. I'm wanting to know if anybody out there makes them that fit dinky little mitts like my little kid size hands (I wear a ladies sz. seven glove), that are warm, waterproof, and you can actually *do* stuff like bait up and get hooks out of mouths without having to take them off. We had the Ice Armor gloves at BPS, but the company never seems to stock SMALL ones! Not to mention the fact that they're out right now.

That's my biggest problem right now is that my hands are so darn tiny. And I froze them to the point of nearly dropping this nice little guy at Tarryall - he was just lookin frosty from the snow he fell in before I could get my photo snapped. I was wearing my windstopper ones, but even they're too bulky to do more than reel with.



Those pink little hands of mine *FROZE* quick - geeeawzus that hurt! Glad I had the jetboil to warm up some snow and warm my hands up.

Got some nice Chota windstopper mittens with cut-off fingers underneath over at Royal Stevens' shop a few months ago. Nice, and I'll take 'em with me tomorrow, but I'm not sure they'll be warm enough.

I have some great Scott gloves that have pockets in the backs that take the chemical handwarmers and they're good for to and from the car and getting off the ice, but, again, need to take em off for actually using my hands to do delicate stuff.

Hey did you embroider that lady bug onto your coat. Just made me think Slayer could use a Grim Reaper holding a fishing pole on his ice suit.

I was at the REI by Park Meadows and saw a couple of neoprene like (was denser and waterproof) that really looked interesting but they only had men's medium and ladies small...so if there is an REI by where you live check them out...

I've never been a big fan of neoprene gloves, my hands always get cold in them. I use the mittens that have a flip top with exposed fingers, great for baiting hooks.

I think no matter what kind of gloves you have once you get them wet holding a fish or whatever they are going to get cold... I like the neoprene once with fleeced lined. I also carry hand warmers for when my fingers get too cold.
I reccommend Glacier Gloves, I dont know how small they make their gloves though... The best thing to do is go to the stores and just try on a ton of gloves.

Ditto on the glacier Gloves if you have to use them they are the best I have tried.

Wish I could help you out but I rarely ever use gloves heck I use my hands to clear my hole anytime the dipper is to far away. About the neoprene ones at least in my experience using neoprene in diving is its warmer once it gets wet.

I usually take multiple pairs with me. I have a pair of Jimmy Hestra skiing gloves that I love for any work outside. They are leather around the fingers and palm and gortex on top and fleece inside. They are the best pair of gloves I've ever owned. They are excellent for drilling ice holes, setting up the shelter, dragging things on the ice, skiing, snowboarding, using the snow blower and the shovel at home, etc., etc. Being leather, things don't dig in and they've lasted me at least 5 or 6 years. They will also keep your hands warm when they are wet (within reason). I think I got them at Copper Mountain and paid about $75 for them.

They are similar to these http://skiershop.com/itemdetails.cfm?ID=501 where the white part is leather and the orange part is Goretex.

I also have a pair of neoprene gloves that I carry just in case and never use - bought them for about $5 or $10 at the army navy surplus on Hampden and Broadway in Littleton. I also have a pair of fleece Remington shooting gloves. They are thin but they work well too.

Thanks for the suggestions, guys. Neoprenes are looking promising. Just need em small. I'm curious about the Glacier Gloves. Anybody know where in town to find 'em?

And Trout, I designed my bug and had it stitched at work (BPS). That's where the avatar came from.
Love that idea for Slayer - too funny!

Sportsmans had a bunch and I am sure Gander does too...most top of the line fly fishing stores have Glacier Gloves...that is where I found mine originally...
