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.
