Cold Water Gloves

Looking ahead to those cold October/November days...

I have a pair of Mares 2mm gloves that I enjoy, but I'd like to pick up something a little more comfortable for late fall/spring.

There seems to be a good selection available in 3mm (is it worth it?), 4mm seems tough to find especially in camo. Definitely don't want anything too cumbersome.

Any recommendations? Thanks!

Re: Cold Water Gloves

I tried 5mm - too bulky for me. I use 3mm all season long (Mar-Nov), just try to buy new pair every fall before it gets cold.
I was a big fan of semi-dry Yazbeck gloves, unfortunately their quality significantly dropped recently (external rubber coating is bad). They nice and warm, but not last even half a season.

I like these too. Nice and warm but rip often on me too. I have to add some wetsuit glue to them this fall.
