4. Showers Pass Crosspoint Waterproof Knit Gloves It’s a rare feat when something is truly waterproof, but these gloves pull it off using three bonded layers. They start with a wear-resistant knit shell on top of a waterproof yet breathable membrane with a moisture-wicking, antibacterial knit lining underneath. A silicone-based grip on the palm and fingers helps maintain purchase in wet conditions. MSRP: $45; showerspass.com.
5. Browning Wicked Wing Gunner’s Gloves Waterfowl hunters know the definition of “wet,” and therefore realize the importance of staying dry without adding bulk. Featuring articulated fingers, including an extra-sensitive trigger finger, these woven polyester gloves also feature an OutDry membrane. OutDry is bonded to the shell, rather than being stitched in, which eliminates interior seams that could leak. It makes the glove water- and wind-resistant, as well as breathable, while wicking moisture. Available in three camo patterns. MSRP: $88; browning.com.
6. Smartwool Merino 250 Gloves These can pull double duty as a liner glove or as a stand-alone option, making them perfect for early archery season, cool mornings during turkey season or beneath a heavy shell when temperatures are frigid. Merino wool resists odors, wicks moisture, and is naturally breathable and elastic. Its fine fibers aren’t itchy, either. Tech manipulation isn’t a problem thanks to the gloves’ index finger and thumb touchscreen capability. MSRP: $35; smartwool.com.
7. Huntworth Stealth Hunting Gloves A soft fleece interior bound to a water-resistant, breathable, stretch-woven shell on the back of these gloves keeps hands warm and dry. Two-way stretch fleece in the palm area helps with dexterity.

Stealth gloves come in Huntworth’s Disruption camo pattern at a budget-friendly price. MSRP: $19.99; huntworthgear.com.
