When hunting in cold , rainy conditions I always have a hard time keeping my hands dry . Boots , hats and a good rainsuit are no problem . I’ve git that covered . It’s good gloves that seem to elude me . The ones that are most dry are too bulky and the ones that have reasonable tactile ability usually leak and my hands freeze . What are you guys using ? Does anyone make a thinner glove that is waterproof ?

I use a trappers gauntlet glove with a liner inside... I cut off the "sleeve" part of the gauntlet so they don't go up my entire arm, or I buy shorter ones.

Multiple gloves. Thin wool if you can find it. I don't now if they still sell them but the poly propylene liner with mylar inside helps a lot.

If my hands are going to get wet i don't wear gloves. It's easier to keep them warm and dry in your pockets.

Rubber Dr. gloves under regular gloves.

I think Kombi still sells the mylar poly blend liners.

I just recently bought Alpaca gloves and although they get wet they seemed to insulate regardless. I took them out of my coat today from sitting in their a few days ago and they seemed more dry then other thinsulate gloves I’ve worn in the past.

I wear latex surgical gloves inside a light glove, gloves get wet but my hands stay warm and dry

I have a pair of rubber lined gloves, I think used by duck hunters and trappers. They aren't all that warm, but they will keep your hands dry. They extend mid fore arm.

In a tree stand I use my tree stand umberella and keep my entire self dry. On the ground I just wear black nitrile gloves

Nitrile gloves underneath for me as well, i always have a set or two in my bino harness and a set or two in my kill kit in my pack, they weigh virtually nothing and are always with me.

My hands sweat like crazy in nitrile or latex gloves! How can you guys stand them?? I just wear cotton jersey gloves and a hand muff warmer. I need a better option, just haven’t found it as far as gloves.

Tree stand hunting I use a tree umbrella in the rain with a thin glove on my bow hand and no glove on the other. I use a hand muff around my waste and when its cold I throw a chemical hand warmer in it. When im up high glassing country side I wear a good pair of water proof ski gloves.

I've worn latex gloves under Merino gloves, hands stayed reasonably warm, gloves were wet, hands were mostly dry but a little sweaty

Once in the stand, I take the gloves off and use a hand muff, works great

Latex gloves over light weight merino wool. Get the heavy duty Venom latex gloves from Menards or on line. I use this combo for fishing as well. My hands stay dry and warm and I have enough dexterity to tie fishing knots. Way better than latex under wool IMO. If it's really cold I will add a pair of finger-less wool gloves over the top.
