Hot Shot Hunting Gloves Review – Hunting Gear Reviews Needed
Hunting gloves are one of those things most hunters don’t think of until they find themselves without a good pair of them. With the start of the PA buck season upon us a few days back and the weather man calling for rain I decided I’d need a new pair of waterproof gloves to get me through the first day. After realizing I had ran out of time to order something from Cabela’s I took a quick trip down to the Sportsman’s Warehouse to check out their selection.
This was the first time I was in a Sportsman’s Warehouse as they are new to the area. I was impressed with their selection of hunting gear in general not to mention their hunting gloves. Most hunting gloves are made to withstand the cold, but knowing there was rain in the forecast I had to have gloves that could handle both the cold and the rain. I was in the process of checking different pairs of gloves out when I ran across the Hot Shot gloves. They had a great fit was the first thing I noticed about them which is half the battle with hunting gloves. In addition they have a full 80 grams of thinsulate which was one of the two items I must have in hunting gloves. The second item was Gore-Tex which unfortunately they didn’t have however they offer something called Aqua E-4 which is another kind of waterproofing.
Well the first day of Pennsylvania’s Buck Season came and it was a complete washout. Everything on me was soaked by the all day rain. The gloves did a great job for me until about 1:00 when I could feel the rain getting through the waterproofing and all the way to my hands. Considering I was in my tree stand by 6:00 I feel the gloves did their job after being exposed to rain for seven hours. Would I have liked them to hold out the entire day without any rain getting in yes, however by the end of this all day rain I knew even my gore-tex hunting suit was about to give in. The only complaint I had about the gloves was the trigger finger was just a little larger than I’d like and when squeezing into the trigger guard area of my rifle I didn’t feel as though I had an abundance of room between the trigger and the glove. Other than that I was very pleased with the gloves. I used them this last Saturday in sub-freezing temperatures and my hands stayed warm all day which even some of my better gloves won’t do. I paid $18.00 for these hunting gloves and would buy another pair if and when I lose these ones.
