When choosing a pair of gloves, few materials can rival the versatility and comfort of fleece. Fleece is warm, breathable, soft, and ultra-lightweight. Throw on a pair for a cool walk in the fall woods or wear them on stand during the early deer season. Fleece gloves are made in a variety of weights, from ultra-light, liner gloves to heavier weights that make a lot of sense for skiing or winter camping. One of the big pluses to fleece is that because it is made from polyester (a petroleum product), it's naturally hydrophobic, so it sheds water, unlike down, which absorbs moisture and will lose its insulating qualities when wet. Bottom line is that fleece will help keep your hands warm even when its wet.
