Capt. Mike Schoonveld talks about fingerless fishing gloves.
Why Use Fingerless Fishing Gloves?
Many years ago, I switched to using fingerless gloves in cold weather. They keep my hands warm and they’ve protected my hands from countless dings, scrapes and line cuts. The best warm, protective gloves I had ever worn were the fleece/neoprene fingerless gloves in Glacier Glove’s Alaska River Series.
Fingerless Fishing Gloves for Summer
A few years ago, I switched to wearing long sleeve shirts made of performance fabric in the summer instead of relying on my “summer tan” or sunscreen to guard my arms against the harmful UV rays from the sun. About the time I slid into my performance Tees, I took off my fleece, fingerless gloves. I didn’t need to keep my hands warm any longer and I learned to put up with the dings and cuts. But there is another threat, usually overlooked, that gloves could eliminate. The same UV sun rays I shield from my arms and torso with my performance cloth shirts is shining relentlessly on my hands. Again, Glacier Glove comes to the rescue. I chose their Islamorada Sun Glove fingerless model.
The Islamorada Sun Gloves give me UPF 50+ sun protection and the faux leather finger, thumb and palm overlay adds protection for my hands as well as increased life for the gloves.
I chose the Gray Camo, but these protective sun gloves for fishing come in several other colors:
Green Camo Sun Gloves
Blue Camo Sun Gloves
