Yeah if you’ve seen the price tag on these bad boys you probably think “ah, who needs heated electric gloves” well why don’t you sit down and write down all the times your hands got cold and wet this waterfowl season and think twice about scoffing at these must have gloves. Sure the price is high but so is the quality! I’ve worn these gloves on over 15 different goose and duck hunting trips on both land and water and my hands have yet to be cold or wet.
Hunting is all about enjoying yourself and if you’re cold or wet it becomes a nightmare especially when it comes to your hands or feet. Oh and I’m sure you’re probably thinking that Columbia sent us these gloves in exchange fort this review but that’s not the case. I admittedly spent $400 on these gloves because I enjoy hunting, not being miserable. I’ve put these gloves through a pretty hard test including completely submerging them in ice cold water picking up duck decoys and unloading hundreds of decoys from the goose trailer and about 15 hunts later they are still in excellent shape. If there’s one thing I double check to make sure I have before going hunting it’s these gloves.
Columbia also offers a heated wader jacket and boots but I’m going to hold off until they can find a way to bring the prices down. They are asking $1200 for the jacket and $400 for the boots but those are items I will have to do without for now. Good luck and happy hunting!
