When it comes to dealing with the wintertime elements on the river, there is not a more important piece of kit than a good pair of gloves. If the fingers go, the day’s done. We need sensation and dexterity to accomplish everything while fly fishing. Trying to tie knots with numb fingers is no fun at best, impossible most of the time. So to equip yourself to withstand the coldest, dampest, nastiest days, you’ll need a well designed and thought out pair of gloves. That’s where the new, updated and improved Simms Extream series comes in. There are three versions of this glove: the Half-Finger for slightly more mild conditions. The Flex Glove for the really gross days. And the Fold-Over Mitt, which is my favorite for all-around winter action.

These gloves have been around for a few years, but the latest version is a big step forward in design and function. All three are shielded with highly water-resistant Polartec Power Shield material. This is a highly pliant, yet amazingly resistant fabric. While not waterproof, it will withstand the wet very well. And it completely cuts out wind chill. It also insulates well, so as long as you keep the gloves on, they will help with warmth regardless of the conditions. The liner material wicks moisture away from the skin is incredibly warm as well as very comfortable.

With the Fold-Over Mitt, there is an added versatility. When hiking from spot to spot, sitting the boat or crouched over a spontaneous riverside campfire, the mitten can be covering your fingers, which are free to rub against each other, creating friction heat. When it’s time to tie knots and fish, the mitten snaps behind the glove to keep it out of the way. The thumb also has a fold-over fingertip cover. I prefer to leave the thumb exposed until the mitten folds over and then rub all five fingers together. It’s amazing how fast you can create heat in there!

One thing to keep in mind with any of these gloves is that fit is really important. I recommend erring on the slightly small side when trying them on. They will loosen with time, but more importantly, you want any glove or base layer to have a skin-to-skin fit.

    I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own blog and was curious
    what all is required to get setup? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?

    I’m not very internet smart so I’m not 100% certain. Any tips or
    advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you

    Hi there just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The text in your content seem to be running off the screen in Chrome.

    I’m not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with web
    browser compatibility but I thought I’d post to let
    you know. The layout look great though! Hope you get the issue fixed soon. Kudos

    You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this topic to be
    really something which I think I would never understand. It seems too complex and extremely broad for me.

    I’m looking forward for your next post, I will try to get the hang of it!

  • quest bars,

    My coder is trying to persuade me to move to .net from PHP.
    I have always disliked the idea because of the costs.
    But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using WordPress on numerous websites for about a year and am
    worried about switching to another platform. I have heard excellent things
    about blogengine.net. Is there a way I can import all my
    wordpress posts into it? Any kind of help would be greatly appreciated!
