I cannot stand wearing heavy gloves. I usually wear a light pair and put hand warmers in my pockets. While in my saddle, it’s difficult to get to my pockets. What do you guys use?

I clip one of those handwarmer muffs that go around your waste directly to my bridge carabiner and it hangs out of the way then when not being used. Throw a handwarmer or two in there and good to go! I don't like wearing heavy gloves while in the stand either.

Thanks. I’ve used one. However, we recently moved and mine is packed away in storage. Looking for other ideas before I dig through everything or go buy a new one

Short of buying expensive gloves, I think the best option I’ve run into is a muff. I’ve wanted to try those sealskinz gloves but haven’t ponied up the Washington’s to do it yet.

I want some sealskinz for duck hunting. Setting decoys on below freezing days is a whole new level of cold hands. I've never lost feeling in my hands in a deer stand. I legit thought I'd messed up and was gonna have nerve damage 2 years ago. 17°. In hindsight, being out in a canoe by myself in the dark in that creek was kinda bone headed.

I have expensive heavy gloves but never wear them. I wear thin gloves and put two hand warmers in each pocket if it is really cold

Just picked up one of these and it is VERY warm especially with a jumbo hand warmer thrown in there.

I use a muff with a strap long enough to go around my neck. Add a Mega Warmer hand warmer & I'm set.

I'm a muff man also! That cabelas one above is very nice. I caught them on clearance awhile back and bought 3 of them. I always seem to misplace them and won't hunt without one anymore when the temps drop.
