The Sealskinz Shooting Glove
At Fin and Game we hand pick every brand that we work with to ensure we are delivering our customers the best equipment for out in the field. We build close relationships with our suppliers and work together to choose products which we then try and test in our sport.
The latest supplier to join forces with Fin and Game is Sealskinz. Although we have been supplying this brand for a while now we are very excited to see more specific shooting products coming through the lines. And with the glorious 12th looming we thought the Sealskinz Shooting Glove was the perfect product to put to the test. So here is our verdict:
What we like about the Sealskinz Shooting Glove:
100% Waterproof, windproof and breathable
A waterproof shooting glove in Britain is a must and Sealskinz have such confidence in their product that it comes with a 2-year waterproof guarantee. There is nothing worse than your kit letting you down on a shoot day but we have confidence that your hands will stay warm and dry in these gloves, meaning you can focus on your technique.
Precision Control – Magnetic fold-back trigger cover
This is what makes this glove particularly special for a shooter. Still keeping your hands warm but allowing contact with the trigger allows you to feel natural with the gun in your hand as well as setting you up for a more accurate shot.
Moisture control with Coolmax
Coolmax is a lightweight performance fibre which keeps you cool, dry and comfortable for longer. Uniquely shaped fibres absorb moisture away from the surface of the skin, which spread within the fibres to enhance the evaporative drying rate, reducing the sensation of wet fabric sticking to the body. Another aspect of this glove which ensures you have a comfortable shoot day.
Somethings to consider about the Sealskinz Glove:
Although we are singing the Sealskinz shooting gloves praises in this review it does come with a higher price tag than some of the other Sealskinz product. However, this does reflect the quality of the glove which is designed to last you past one season.
If you are looking for a shooting glove with a lower price tag, the Sealskinz Solo Shooting Glove is for you! It also provides excellent grip for precise control in all shooting disciplines.
We would also recommend ordering a size up on this glove as it can be quite tight on the hand otherwise.
Now that the weather has warmed up and the evenings are getting longer, insect activity has increased to hatches through the day and into the evenings giving the dry fly fisher a great opportunity to catch some good-sized trout. The low water flows that we have just now are making dry fly fishing quite challenging as the trout are [...]
If like me the fishing has been slow and as we are not keeping the beautiful silver springers any way what is there to eat?Late April/May is the duffers month for roe stalking. We are treated to nice warm mornings and early evenings. With the Roe Bucks pre occupied with holding territory, it’s a good time for duffers [...]
Packing for Fly Fishing in Alphonse, the SeychellesPacking marks the start of the holiday for me. I am a bit of a nerd when it comes to tackle and kit so I weirdly enjoy packing. The anticipation for the trip kicks in when I search the latest offerings from the leading manufactures to see which [...]
Fin and Game’s confessed trout bum, John MacLennan, gives us the low down on how to prepare for the upcoming trout season. We even convinced him to share his fly box collection with us. John’s latest fishing adventure was to Colorado, visiting his favourite river - The Roaring Fork. With the brown trout season now open, early season fly fishing [...]
Tea Smoked Trout by The Potted Lobster So the shooting is over and the fishing begins. I fear a wild spring salmon might be as popular as stir fried panda! Likewise for a spring sea trout recipe! Hopefully this will be a better year for the summer seatrout on my local haunt and give me enough to harvest a couple. [...]
Patagonia Middle Fork Packable Waders For those of us who travel with our waders, we know how much weight and space they can take up, often on trips where both are a luxury you can’t afford.When I first saw the Patagonia Middle Fork Packable Waders packaged away, I thought it was a packable waterproof jacket. Never did I expect [...]

Eat What You Shoot: BBQ Tandoori Partridge - Courtesy of The Potted LobsterA Word from the Chef: With the shooting season drawing to an end it will be a year most of us will want to forget; salmon and sea trout runs have been disappointing, Grouse shooting, on the hole suffered with many moors having to cancel. Even as I [...]
