Thread: best bowhunting gloves

    best bowhunting gloves

    So whats the best bowhunting gloves out there for colder weather? I want warm, but also don't want a lot of bulk, so that I can't feel the release trigger. What is everyone using that they love?

    i like the under armour generally

    I do use some thicker ones when it gets colder but being in texas it doesn't require anything to terribly thick.

    I have several pairs of gloves and I like them for various situations and reasons. I use the Under Armor gloves in the early season, and on cool days, but they aren't much help below about 50 degrees. I have a pair of Remington Midweight gloves that really work nicely for cooler days below the 50 degree mark, but on days that dip below the 30's, they are a little light. The problem with trying to find the right pair of bowhunting gloves in cold weather is the trade off between warmth and dexterity. This season I've purchased a pair of Manzella Bow Ranger gloves to use on my trip up north. I really like the looks and feel of them, but once again they are a midweight glove. That's why I always keep two hand warmers in my pockets, and keep my hands in my pockets as much as possible.

    Another vote for the Primos stretch fit gloves. A solution I've come up with for when it gets really cold is to carry a handwarmer muff that straps around me and just go gloveless or wear the thin Primos gloves and just keep them in the pouch until I need them out for something.

    i just bought a 10 pack of double sided rubberdotted gloves and fit on either hand. i can keep 8 gloves in my truck/backpack/pockets and always find a left and a right. i think i got them at big lots or walmart or home depot over the summer. i forgot about them and found them this morning looking for nocks in my man cave. as a matter of fact i found a new knife that i forgot about.

    I go with the brown jerseys also. This year I'm going to pick up a muff if I have to be out when it gets much colder. Might just wear a warmer glove on the left hand. That's the one that gets cold for me while holding onto the riser of the bow. I'll have to try that doubling up on the jerseys.

    And yes, I know that cotton is no good in the cold, but I can't justify spending a bunch of money on gloves. Like said earlier, it's hard to find a meeting place between warmth and dexterity/feel.

    I absolutely dislike rubber dotted gloves.....they tend to induce torque bt not allowing the bow handle to slide..

    That is another reason I like the Primos gloves...they are somewhat slick...and are torque free.

    I have some too. They are a thin fleece but warm and they're windproof. Bought 2 pair on clearance a week ago for $5 a pair, normally $20 a pair. Dont know if they have any left or not. That was at BPS in Springfield, MO.

    I have a pair of bowhunter gloves that I really like. I generally don't wear gloves at all until it gets well below freezing. I can't spell the brand name. It is something like Matsuri? They have a opening for your release to go through on the palm side of the
    glove. They also have them in three different wieghts. I have the medium weight ones. They are plenty for me even in 10 degree weather, but like I said, my hands don't get that cold.

    OK......a few years later, what is eveyone's opinion? I use a thumb release, so I try to avoid the gloves that have a hole in them for strap releases. Is there a glove that will keep one's hands warm and still allow them to feel the release well?

    I'm still a big fan of using my hand muff with no gloves. I sometimes still use a pair of UA gloves, but the muff is where it's at for me.

    Thanks guys. Sometimes I tend to over complicate things. I am thinking now that a mid to light weight glove will be my best bet, and use a hand muff as mentioned. I actually have one, but it is pretty old. It could be just as effective as the newer ones, though......

    best bowhunting gloves

    I'm a hand muff guy when it gets really cold. I use a thumb release and took a lightweight pair of Remington gloves and cut a slit in the thumb for when I need to shoot. Otherwise I just pull my thumb back inside the glove and its fairly warm.
    Be excellent to each other...

    I have a pair of under armor super thin spandex-like gloves and then I just throw a pair of hot hands in my pockets and leave my hands in my pockets till its go time. I do this from about 50 degrees down to as cold as I'll go out. Been doing it this way the last 3 years or so.
