    I like to get out on the river year round and it can be a miserable thing in foul weather. One of the best hats I have found to keep you warm are the pile caps with the fur ear pieces. You may look like Randy Quaid from National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation, but you will be warm doing it. My Mother-in-Law got me a pair of Exhale gloves for Christmas. They have a little port in the back of the hand to breath into. This port lets warm air from your breath run to the tips of the fingers. On a trial basis it seems great, I haven't put them to the full test, but I think I'm gonna like em. Vern

    Vernon try wool gloves,wool is the only thing that will keep your hands warm when wet.The last year I wet traped I had on wool gloves,they stayed wet the whole time I was on my trap line and my hands never got to cold.
