Product Description

Shimano have created a practical yet stylish all day, multi-purpose fishing glove that has been designed to keep abrasive materials such as braid and sharp items like fish spikes away from the wearer’s hands. Shimano's Ocea Fishing Gloves also provide extra grip in wet conditions and protection from the sun's harmful rays.
Specially coated ultra-thin titanium alloy which provides insulation and warmth on cold days but also allows hands to breathe and reduce over-heating and sweating during summer. The index finger of the glove has a special non-slip material which has been reinforced for casting and reinforced palm for jigging.

Benefits of Jigging Gloves
There was a time where if you wore a set of gloves while fishing you'd be ridiculed by mates, but thankfully this seems to be a thing of the past, as their many benefits become apparent. Fishing gloves are now an accepted part of on-water fashion, but more importantly can add significantly to your fishing experience.
For various intensive fishing styles like popping and jigging, that require long periods of quite vigorous rod and reel work, gloves are basically a must-have in your kit. Every time I get flippant in this area it's amazing how quick hands can blister if there's any 'rub points' on the reel handle in particular. Once you've blistered up your hand(s) you can be in quite a lot of pain for the rest of your trip, and even put out of commission - not cool, particularly if you're on an extended fishin' mission!
Gloves offer many benefits, from protecting you from the sun, keeping your hands warm, through to limiting fish spines and braid cuts, providing extra grip, and reducing the abovementioned wear and tear on your hands from various forms of high-octane lure work.
Shimano Ocea Jigging Gloves have all the desirable attributes you could ask for. They're lightweight, dry fast and offer great flexibility, so you can fish unimpeded and really get stuck in. They look cool as well, being black with gold trim, with the '3D' Ocea logo on the back.
