A review for fellow sea anglers, an easy 5 stars.
on 23 January 2013
I'm a sea angler, I fish on beaches for long periods of time in all weathers, so I expect my hands to get cold, very cold at times, especially so in driving wind and rain when the air temperature drops to minus figures. But they don't with these gloves. I wear mine with thin inners, not because the gloves aren't warm enough, but only because they'd get smelly very quickly from the bait and fish I handle, so the inners get washed after every trip. Now I know I can't cast, reel in or bait up wearing them - I knew that when I bought them - but after having slipped them off to do such things, when popped back on they warm the hands again very quickly - certainly my hands have never been warmer in winter when fishing. Don't worry about the gauntlet style being too big to fit over the arms of your flotation suit either, as the cuffs can be folded back easily if you choose. They won't win any awards for style of course, but hey, do any of us? They're easily the best value for money items I've experienced in a long time.
