hahaha. jpanderson, my beanie is carhartt. small world. as for gloves i have two pairs that i think might work. One is for hunting and one is for fly-fishing. My hunting gloves are fleece/neoprene combo. fleece on the back neoprene on the front but the finger tips are cut off (easier to get to the trigger for chukar and grouse hunting) They do a great job at keeping my hands warm for the most part and i like being able to control things better with out the tips. My next pair is a really thin type of neoprene material i think. I haven't used them much and they have been in the bottom of my fly-fishing bag but when i do use them on really cold winter fishing days, they do wonders. I think i will probably end up using the cut off finger ones though. thanks for the glove info though.
