There are tasks, like knot tying, that simply require the dexterity of warm, bare fingers. That's why we designed the Guide Windbloc® Foldover Mitt. This windproof mitt is for the dedicated angler who does not care what the forecast says about temps and still wants easy access to warm fingers. It's pre-curved for a natural fit, and heat-pack pockets in the wrist add warmth without interfering with grip or dexterity.
- 100% windproof with 4-way stretch
- Heat-pack pocket sits on the wrist for optimal warmth
- Pre-curved fit for increased dexterity
- Zoned insulation for warmth
- Sueded overlays in key grip areas for extra durability
- Polartec® Windbloc® is designed to block 100% of wind and provide maximum protection from harsh elements and inclement weather. By embedding a breathable micro-porous laminate between a durable outer layer and lofted inner fibers we created a stronger balance between insulating warmth and performance stretch. This flexible versatility gives this protective fabric incredible resilience against the weather and abrasive elements without restricting comfort.

Great but missing previous featureLove these gloves for winter steelheading. But the previous version had two little orange loops one the back side of the middle fingers. They were fantastic for quickly pulling the glove off without stretching it out or risk seam wear/blow. But the latest version eliminated them.
Would love these even more if the outer fabric came with some light DWR shell layer. I try to add DWR sprays to them and end up with 2 pair - one for the morning and one for the afternoon once the previous pair is completely soaked out.
The hand warmer wrist pocket is brilliant and a total game changer for keeping the fingers limber enough to manipulate line and tie gear.
stellar gloves 1 caveat.I have the predecessor to this glove. 3 years no issues. warm hands.
thumb snap is a definite improvement over the previous loop.
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.
Add the loops back and they're perfect.
LOVEI have a few pairs of these, i can't say enough about how perfect they are in all conditions.
Easy to fish cold mornings and warmer afternoons.
A Keeper!I’ve been wearing these since they were introdcued and they are amazing. Guiding on the Chesapeake, they are a must have. I guide out of a boat in unprotected water. Running 100 miles a day is not unrealistic and they keep my paws toasty and dry. The fold over mitt is great for re-ties and does not interfere with casting a fly line. What are you waiting for, pull that trigger!
Overall, a great compromise combination of warmth & protection while allowing dexterity.A fold-over mitt with half-fingered gloves is potentially the holy grail of gloves. The mitt concept provides much more warmth than fingered gloves. The ability to conveniently fold it back allows for immediate dexterity. Then just fold the mitt back over again for warmth. The wind-proof material is durable and effective. It is water-resistant, though not quite waterproof: I sprayed mine with waterproofing to help and that lasts for a couple of weeks. Getting the right size is critical here: my hands are med/lg size for gloves, and I bought large and it is almost too tight around my fingers, and my fingers touch the tip of the inside of the mitt, so you might want to try them on in a shop or order one size larger. You don't want anything constricting your circulation or your hands will get cold. The mitt is not as bulky as say a down mitten, but that is the trade-off between functionality and warmth. The material inside the glove and mitt is fairly warm, but nothing like a down mitts or gloves, of course. It dries quickly, though, and the addition of a pocket-warmer sleeve inside the wrist area is clever and very effective. I have worn these for a month and my hands stay warm down to about 30 degrees fahrenheit without a pocket-warmer, and down to 0 degrees with one. That is saying a lot for a glove that allows me to use my fingers for whatever I need to, and still keep my hands warm. I bought a second pair, I like them so much. I would say about 85% on the holy grail scale. A slightly larger mitt area and interior material that provides a bit more warmth and I would be in glove heaven.
