Tight is right.
The Simms Tightlines Glove offers warmth and water-repelling protection during those long, cold days spent on the river. Hardface fleece combined with a DWR-coating prevents wind and water from getting the best of your toasty situation, while a half-exposed thumb and index allows you to manage the line and tie knots. Plus, its slim design makes for easy wearing under protective, shell gloves for added warmth.
- Fishing-friendly gloves for cold days on water

- Exposed thumb and index let you handle the line easily
- Q & A
Nice up to a point
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I liked these gloves the first few times I wore them and then I picked the material on a hook while tying a fly. It made a little tuft and fray right on the index finger that got in the way quite a bit. Then they got soaked when I took a header and they seemed to constrict on my hands to the point that while trying to get them off the stitching at the thumb completely shredded. I wound up tossing them and will replace them with the Solarflex SunGloves as they look a bit more durable.
Awesome, until they wet out...
These are great! The material is super comfortable and insulates well. With the thumb and two finger-holes, it is super easy to switch bugs, untangle your line, or add an extra weight to your rig. Great to fish with too...not great once they are wet, but I have yet to find a glove that still insulates when wet AND allows for this much dexterity.
