    Atlas Thermafit for setting decoys, walking in, doing brush work, even driving the boat. $6

    Atlas 460 s for breaking ice, picking up decoys, driving the boat. $14

    A good insulated pocket with a hand warmer during the hunt. Or just inside your waders or bibs. If it is brutal go with wool fingerless gloves. $11

    These will outperform and outlast all of the $40-60 gloves offered by waterfowl companies.

    I have Atlas 460s I use for decoy setting/picking up and I use 'em for bbq gloves - they are excellent for pulling pork.

    How did you buy them, they show "pre-launch"? These look like they would be pretty good.

    This might be a newer version, I bought mine at Cabelas's about 5 years age, starting to show some wear, not perfect but definitely water proof and good dexterity in the fingers, no problem loading shells and shooting with them on your hand.

    Once in the blind, I have to agree with others here. Hand muff ! Check out the Cabelas Wooltimate goose-down hand warmer. Normally run about $70. A buddy just picked up one on sale for $15.!!! I've used mine for 3 seasons and love it. Dense wool outer; thick fleece inside with down sandwiched in between.

    Another thing I've been doing, is I got my wife to make a pair of thick polar fleece type mitts.
    In the blind, I put them into the tops of my hip boots & slip my hands into them.
    Works great
    Once the weather really torns cold ----it's 0 degrees here in Minnie right now,---- I got to the muff.
    It's handy & putting a hand warmer in it is superb !
