EDIT: Realized this wasn't specifically for ice fishing.

Most gloves are worthless at keeping the tips of your fingers warm and/or feeling the rod or line IMO. I've tried quite a few different types. If I absolutely had to choose one it would be rag wool mittens that fold back to expose the fingers so long as they don't get wet.

So for me no gloves for fall or early spring. I just use one of those cheap hand warmer tubes that you wear around your waste or the pockets of my hoody and stuff a disposable hand warmer in there if is real cold.

For ice I like the rag wool mittens I mention above. IF it is super cold I wear my Ice Armor Mittens to walk out and set up then switch to the rag wool.

Now boots are a hole different subject...

If we're talking ice fishing I like green wool Army surplus gloves. They are sold as "glove liners." I always buy a few pair this time of year. Cheap and wool will stay warm even if it gets wet. Light and easy to stuff in a pocket. If you lose one it's easy to find a matching mate. (I take wood chopper mitts along for back up as needed).

^^^ Used those for years and loved them. Now I use a neoprene/spandex type of running glove/glove insert. I have most of my dexterity and they are easy to shed to land fish.

I used to use roping gloves that were basically the same thing. they were great. cost about $5 for three pair and were not hand specific so it didn't matter which went on which hand. now they're something stupid like $15 a pair and not nearly as durable.

Yay. I'm going up there this weekend. I used to buy stuff from there all the time when I worked construction. I don't know about now but they used to have a lot of carhartt stuff cheap

I've tried a few different type boots over the years. I went with the Cabela's brand pack boot and wear normal socks underneath. A little heavy for long hikes. But haven't had anymore issues with cold toes even at 11-mile when it was -13.

I contemplated the good ole Army Micky Mouse Boots. But, I couldn't bring myself to that horrible flashback. Plus I don't have to air mine up.
