Get into these serious R1® Gloves if, as a serious hard-core angler, you want to keep your hands warm and nimble even in freezing rain, icy wind and cold water. That would be pretty much 7 months of the year, round these parts. The thin, flexible 1.5mm smooth-skin neoprene outer stops wind and shrugs off moisture, while the combination nylon/polypropylene/spandex insulation locks in warmth. A 3-panel, stitched and glued construction with anatomically placed seams provides remarkable formfitting comfort, water-resistance and dexterity. What makes these "new and improved" is that they've added a light, neoprene-dipped skin to make the R1s even more durable and waterproof. Patagonia gets the hard-core angler every time. Seriously.
