I hunt in Michigan. our season ends December 30 - January 1. last year I wore a left glove for a total of 4 hours one day. year before, left glove 3 hours one day, 2 hours another day because wind chills were below 15. don't even know where my matching right gloves are. my rigging system avoids all water on hands come hunt with me in December. I will prove it ps - I don't wear socks in my waders either. they just cut off circulation and make your feet cold. tho I have started wearing the thinest of socks only to slide waders on and off easier, as my bare feet (for 45 years) were sticking, and I have less flexibility in my 70s.
