    Don't buy under armour--they won't keep you warm--

    These are awesome and John is a pleasure to work with. Two weights offered. When it's really cold we use silk liners underneath the winter weight model.

    Forget the Apricey reccomendation of Footjoy gloves- worst gloves for this purpose ever made- might be good for 1-2 golf games- maybe just one

    1. They arent warm

    2. They dont last


    Go to a bike store or a store like Scheels that also sells bikes and look at their winter glove selection in the bike riding section

    Bike riders demand dexterity and durability

    I have always wondered if "shooting glove" manufacturers are wanting your gloves to wear out so they make them to do just that so you have to replace them

    Regards from Iowa

    Police officer supply stores have a fantastic selection. I can't find my 10X shooting gloves that I used to get at Wally World any more, anyone seeing them give a shout.

    Go to the Cabelas Web site and look at the Kangaroo skin insulated shooting gloves. They are not bulky and they work. We shot in 15 degrees last night and then I scored. No problem. They are not cheap. I bought 3 pair during the end of winter sale. I use them for pheasant hunting in December too. Great gloves.

    Another product that works great is the electronic waist muff. Operates on recharable or standard batteries and has 2 heated bulbs in side that you grab inbetween shots.

    Get yourself some "Under Armour" winter coaching gloves and they will be as good as anything else you can find. I ware mine all winter long for everything.
