    Wet weather gloves - recommendations

    Interested to hear recommendations for wet weather gloves.

    Duck hunting type applicastion. So something thin enough to still get your finger into the trigger guard, but able to keep your fingers warm.

    More concerned about keeping fingers warm than dry... Used to fly-fish with fleece gloves, kept my fingers warm even after dunking them into freezing lake, is that still the go, or have you guys found something else that works better ?

    I've lost them, but I got a wicked pair (abut $50 worth) of wind proof Mountain Designs fleece gloves. Even got them altered by an apolsterer mate to fit my hands perfectly

    Still warm when wet, you just gotta squeeze your hand really tight and they dry quick. Windproof too, much needed in wellies. Get a size that is relatively tight. Not too much that it hinders circulation, but still good for working in.
