They are the most expensive and best gloves I have ever owned. I have an older nearly identical pair (3 years now) that are still like new and have been fished hard by this retired guy. They are surprisingly warm even when wet and they are not bulky. I was so impressed I bought a pair of Simms waders.
This is the second pair of simms gloves I've tried that has NO finger pulls. I didn't notice this until after a cold wet day on the river. Trying to get these off your hands with no finger pulls is like trying to put toothpaste back into the tube. Worthless. Simms, you are way better than this. Put finger pulls on all of your half finger gloves. It's almost like you actually never tried taking these off with wet hands before you put them for sale.
I have the predecessor to this glove. 3 years no issues. warm hands.<br /><br /> thumb snap is a definite improvement over the previous loop.<br /><br />I don't see the loops on the backs of the middle 2 fingers which is a definite nono, as the loops are essential for removing wet gloves from wet hands.<br /><br />Add the loops back and they're perfect.
