I was wondering how you all dry your Kenai neoprene/fleece gloves (fingerless). Tumble dry no heat? They can't take heat, yes?

Not too fun starting a freezing snowy day by putting "ice packs" on my hands.

I just throw my gloves on the dash and turn up the heat and let them dry out on the way home. Usually need the heat way up after fishing in winter anyways wink:

Thanks for the ideas. I like the boot dryer.

Hey Omar, did you try out the gold bar blizzard this morning? I only saw one caught, well, I barely saw it through the white out. I had one shake off. Cold!

I was going to head out this morning but watched the news last night and say they were expecting about ten inchs up in that aread so decided might not be the best idea to head out. I'll hopefully be out tomorrow Tup:

I throw mine on the heater register in my reloading room when I get home and they are usually dry by morning. I tried the clothes dryer on low heat delicate, twice, the first time and the last. Little nuggets of neoprene everywhere...

Might try a blow dryer, if the wife will let you borrow it :eek: Just keep it on the low setting and a fair distance away from the gloves. This should dry them pretty quickly. Most of my neoprene or fleece stuff dries pretty quickly when left at room temp in a dry place overnight.

This may not help but, I have 2 pair. One pair is drying and the other is in use. I just leave the drying pair at home hanging in the gear room. Usually good to go when the others come home wet. It's nice when more than one person thinks you need the same thing for your b-day which is in Dec. wink:

I run mine through the washer and dryer. They seem to hold up pretty well.

I'm on my second pair as my first pair lasted four years. Not bad for a $7.00 pair of gloves.

Being neoprene it is just like a wet suit, if you put them on wet they will warm up. When I am between outings, I clip them together hang them up. If fact if I shake them hard most of the water gets thrown off as the fleece does not hold moisture and neither does neoprene.

Thats what i do too. when they are dry they go in the golve box ( novel concept gloves in the glove box). On my next trip out I put them on the defrosters to get them warm. Putting on warm gloves when it is cold feels nice.
