It’s no secret, if fish in cold weather you get cold hands. Add to that landing fish and getting your hands wet, then you have numb fingers making fly fishing near impossible. The hunt for perfect cold weather fishing gloves is an ongoing process for all cold weather anglers and usually involved sacrificing fit for warmth.
Enter Kast Extreme Fishing Gear. I first saw cast at the IFTD show where they made their big launch, with a focus on technical features and unique styling, I was excited to pick up a pair of the Steelhead gloves. Claiming waterproof, windproof, warmth, and built for dexterity… how can you go wrong.
The Steelhead gloves feature the OutDry membrane. This system is directly bonded to the shell of the glove. This creates a one-piece glove that prevents air, wind, or water to penetrate the outer shell. In use this gives a fit and dexterity found in no other gloves.
There are some great features that make this fishing specific glove a step above just “normal gloves”. A waterproof wrist gasket keeps unwanted water out.
The low profile while still having enough insulation to keep you warm. Also the upper is constructed with 4-way stretch material for unlimited movement.
