Glacier Outdoor, the Reno, Nevada-based outdoor apparel and accessories company, unveiled a new glove that will help keep a fly-fisher’s hands protected, whether poling a skiff, casting and retrieving a coarse fly line or just baking under a tropical sun.
Glacier’s Lycra Sun Glove features a durable polyurethane palm and a 50-plus ultraviolet protection factor (UPF) Lycra back for maximum protection against ultraviolet rays. The lightweight Lycra dries extremely quickly, a major benefit for fly-fishermen, and a new design pattern provides exceptional protection for the fingers, keeping them comfortable while stripping line or leaning against an abrasive push pole. The glove’s polyurethane palm is comfortable, thin and durable, while its extended cuff protects the vulnerable wrist from sun. The Sun Glove is available in small, medium, large and extra-large sizes.
MSRP is $19.99. www.glacieroutdoor.com
