1. Nomad Women’s Harvester Gloves
Women hunters won’t need more glove than the Harvester in most climates. These medium-weight gloves in Mossy Oak Country camo have a double-knit outer bonded to a high-pile fleece interior and utilize an elastic hem to retain warmth. They are built with a curve for a more natural fit, with a scent-blocking system and a textured print on the palm for grip. MSRP: $49.99; nomadoutdoor.com.

2. Pnuma Performance Deerskin Work Gloves
Whether you’re chasing pronghorns through cactus country or baling hay, buck up and tackle the task at hand with these durable, full-grain deerskin leather gloves. They are work-ready with UV resistance and water-repelling qualities. Best of all, they’re guaranteed for life. MSRP: $60; pnumaoutdoors.com.

3. Banded Squaw Creek Gloves
Frozen hands are a common problem among waterfowl hunters. The Squaw Creek gloves from Banded look to solve that issue with a 275-denier, waterproof exterior and PrimaLoft Silver insulation. With a wide-mouth opening, these gloves won’t be difficult to put on or to remove, either. Available in three camo patterns. MSRP: $49.99; banded.com.

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. Other features include Microban, a scent-control treatment, along with a silicone print on the palm and touchscreen-compatible materials on the index finger and thumb. Stealth gloves come in Huntworth’s Disruption camo pattern at a budget-friendly price. MSRP: $19.99; huntworthgear.com.
