GORE-TEX® waterproof performance for hard-working hands For hands used to hammering throttles and pulling on oars, Simms' G4 Glove crushes circulation-killing temperatures and drops them into the drink. Featuring GORE-TEX® XTRAFIT™, these layer-constructed gloves are fully waterproof and highly dexterous thanks to form-fitting ergonomics. Stretch woven panels bolster mobility. Debossed goat leather palms, with Pittards® Oiltac overlays, deliver non-slip grip in a sleet storm. And shingled neoprene cuffs prevent encroaching water from sneaking up and into sleeves.
The GORE-TEX® membrane is the heart of all GORE -TEX® products. The GORE-TEX® membrane contains 9 billion microscopic pores per square inch. These pores are so small that water droplets cannot get through but water vapor can still escape. Water from the outside cannot penetrate and cold winds cannot pass through, but perspiration can escape easily, keeping you dry and comfortable all day. GORE-TEX® fabrics are created by integrating the GORE-TEX® membrane between an outer fabric and lining.
Cleaning your GORE-TEX® garments regularly will extend the life of the product. It will also keep them breathable as dirt and oil can clog the GORE-TEX® membrane over time.
It is critical to wash jackets. Natural oils can damage the GORE-TEX® tape and adhesives causing a peeling effect.
Machine wash warm. Do not use fabric softener or bleach.
Remember to zip all pockets and close all Velcro cuffs before washing to prevent any damage caused by the machine.
Tumble dry on warm setting making sure not to use a high heat setting. Drying on warm will actually reactivate the DWR coating.

The gloves seemed great but the XL is small I felt so I had to return them. The one suggestion I have is order up a size if you want them to fit.

Bought these for steelhead this winter in Upstate NY. We get some pretty brutal temperatures during our winters, unfortunately for steelheaders, this is the best time for them. I needed something waterproof and warm, used to use neoprene gloves, opted for these this year. My initial impression is, they are great. Havent had a chance to test them in the field, but my initial impression of them are spot on with what I wanted. Sizes are a little small to size, so go a size bigger if youre unsure. Im usually a medium glove, these fit great for me, but were on the small side. Test the waterproofing in a bucket of ice water, not a single drop touched bare-skin and kept my hands warm. Will give more stars once ive used them in the field.

I have large hands and was somewhat reluctant to purchase these gloves. The XL seemed rather small.
I am a fisheries biologist, an avid fisherman, and a white water enthusiast. After testing these gloves out rowing the Gallatin, the Madison, and the Middle Fork of the Salmon, I am impressed by the function, ruggedness, and design. The fit did loosen up, but I would not recommend them to individuals with really beefy hands.
Overall though, I am happy I own a pair. If they fit you, buy them!

Early Spring Chinook fishing can be hard on the hands during cold and windy weather on the Columbia River. These gloves provide warmth as well as dexterity for working the reels, anchor ropes and other on-board tasks.

Great gloves. Best aspect is the size chart that helps you get the right size. Very often ordering online items don't fit the way you expect.

Yesterday I fished an ice fishing tournament where the condition were, 10degrees 25mph winds and snowing. These gloves kept my hands warm especially after having to scoop a few crappies out of the hole. By the end of the tournament my left hand had close to 1/2" of ice on the fingers. Only downside to these gloves are when you pull your hand out the liner likes to pull out as well and can be a pain to get put back in place.
