FTCO already has a wide array of fishing gloves, but we wanted to add a pair of gloves that will be warm in the colder temperatures but still give you the mobility to cast all day. Helm Insulated Gloves features a windproof 4-way stretch outer shell with microfleece insulation, and a 4-way stretch reinforced palm with silicon palm grip texturing. Wear these while fishing and pair with Hydronaut Gloves while running the boat. Gloves will work with smartphones too!

I tried a pair of these. The gloves weren't bad unless you tried to fish a spinning rod & you cast RH. The little fingertip pad used to provide smatphone/tablet operability will interfere by catching your line on the cast & ruining the cast. Poor design.. This pad should have been extended further down the finger or incorporated in such a way that the surface remained smooth for proper line flow on the cast.
The gloves fit good, and are very well made, but are not very insulated and VERY easy to get caught with your hooks. For the $, I expected better. I still recommend AFTCO products tho! VERY good company!
I bought these gloves for my early morning trips to the water and they are very good at keeping my hands warm in cooler temps, are thin, and does not compromise my retrieving. Would suggest putting a more insulated glove over when out in freezing temps. 100% recommend!
The gloves kept my fingers and hands dry, but in no way did the gloves keep my hands warm at all and the water temp was in the low 50's with the air temp in the mid 40's. The gloves performed poorly in my opinion
These gloves are great for cold starts on the water, I love that they work with all my electronic devices no need to pull them off to touch the screens, thin enough to wear while fishing and they allow enough feel and keep your hands warm. I picked up 2 pair, I normally wear a 2x but the xl fit perfect with the stretch of the glove. Great product.
I have a very big hand I never repeat never can find outdoor wear that fits well. These gloves fit like they were made for me. They are comfortable very warm and can work in conjunction with the Hydronaut Gloves for total protection from the elements. Very Impressed . Now if AFTCO can make bigger rain gear that fits like these gloves there is no need to shop elsewhere!!! Great Product!
