It doesn't matter if you are bowhunting in Iowa, or fishing in Alaska, if you figured the cost for every minute you get to spend out in the field, anything that betters your chances of staying warm and dry is worth it.
Weighing in at just about 2 oz per pair, our “Herdwear” gloves, are the lightweight, surprisingly soft, and seriously strong answer to unprepared wilderness newbies. Clocking in at 6x warmer than wool, these are pro-quality and "buff-tough". The best part, get them wet, they just wick the moisture away from your skin, and keep you warm and comfortable, unlike most man-made fibers, maintain their insulating properties when wet.
Tough enough to survive an ice age.
Combed from the insulating, downy undercoat of the American Bison, until you put these on, it's hard to believe their ultra-soft comfort and lightweight warmth.

These gloves are 90% Bison, 10% Nylon making them a durable, absorb moisture without feeling damp, and retain body heat well. Machine washable. Like all of our bison products, 100% guaranteed: either you love em, or we buy em back.

I just received the fingerless gloves and i was off to michigan UP for a hog hunt. Temps ran about 30 deg. and about 5 feet of snow. The gloves worked beyound anything i would hope for, keeping my hands warm and dry.
These are the best gloves we’ve ever worn when it comes to warmth and siftness
I have had several pairs of fingerless gloves, these are by far the best. Any cold weather these will keep your hands warm. I use for both saltwater fishing and duck hunting
I bought a pair about a year ago and wear them constantly for cold morning walks and driving in the rain and drear here (PNW). Worn a lot of fingerless gloves over the years and these cost more than all. But just bought another pair so I always have another when my first wears out. The Bison Down wears far longer than merino or possum down!
Fifteen years ago I attended an annual sportsman show held in my hometown Anchorage Alaska. I stumbled across a small booth that was selling bison/marino wool fingerless gloves. I purchased a pair and proceeded to use those gloves for fishing winter Kenai, spring southeast AK and a lot of western Alaska fall trout fishing. Albeit those gloves started off dry each day, invariably they got wet most days. I found out quickly that I could easily hand wring out any rain, sleet, snow or even dunking my hands releasing a fish and the warmth of those gloves would immediately return. After 15 years and 1000+ fishing days I just purchased 6 additional pair for myself, sons and a couple of their girlfriends. I am fortunate in that my boys share my passion for fishing. The gloves made wonderful Xmas presents for all. Im spending my winters now in Baja chasing warm weather fish but I know those gloves will get plenty of good use back in Alaska the other 8 months of the year!! Jody Wolfe.
The gloves are great. They are definitely a little more fuzzy than traditional wool gloves but the warmth is unmatched.
First of all, these are the warmest wool gloves I have ever worn. Hands down (hah).
But they have problems. I have been wearing mine almost EVERY day of cold weather for the past twoish years. I own two pairs of these gloves. The reason I own two pair is because the very first thing to go on them is the elastic in the cuff. Both pairs - even the factory replacement - shipped with uneven cuffs.
I solved this for one pair by cutting the cuff off of another glove and sewing it on top of these cuffs. The other pair (for which the cuffs had completely blown out within a year) now serves as a liner for another pair of woolen gloves. This setup lets me mountianbike in 0 degrees F. Incredible wool!!!
SUGGESTION TO POTENTIAL BUYERS: get a pack of bison wool roving with the gloves. My main pair I often use with a computer mouse and keyboard, so they tend to pill up and loose material in a few spots faster than others. You can take the roving and use felting needles to bolster the yarn in places where it has worn thin. Cheaper than buying a whole new pair.
I'll be back to try other products
Love my buffalo wool fingerless gloves.
