Pros & Cons

Great Gloves

I can't stand getting all that greasy sunscreen on my hands. So I wear clothing that I won't have to if i'm out hours on end at the river or lake. My clothes worked great, but my hands were getting sunburned. So after a few searches here on YA, and a few others I decided to go with the Columbia Coolhead Fingerless Gloves. I recently had them on for the third time out fishing and really liked what I saw and felt. They gave me great coverage on my hands from the sun and not once got in the way with casting, hook removal, paddling, portaging, etc. If I didn't look at them, I would forget I had them on. Very comfy fit. I saw on previous reviews of similar gloves, there was issues with tearing up easy. So far, I have not been easy on these gloves at all. Like I said, I forget i'm wearing them and go about my fishing grind and lifting/dragging my yak over dams, rocks and fallen trees, moving limbs, etc, and they have held up great so far. Not a tear or even a snag. I hope they continue because $28 is a bit pricey to be buying over and over. But so far, so good. Awesome gloves!
