Default Any thin truly waterproof fishing gloves?

I am looking for a pair of gloves that have the following attributes:

1. will keep my hands dry when I reach into the water or during rain,
2. can breath (goretex type material, no latex),
3. thin and form fitting like a golf glove.

Does such a glove exist? Or should I try some leather gloves and waterproof the heck out of them with wax/oils?

I don't know about breathability, but Glacier Gloves make some nice neoprene gloves that you may want to take a look at. I have a pair of the split finger ones, and they have been great for the five years I have owned them. They will keep your hands dry and warm. http://www.glacieroutdoor.com/index.php

I have glacier gloves as well and they're the best I've found for warmth while letting your hands function. Bass pro carries a pretty credible version for less $$.

You could used something like a ski glove. I have some Columbia's that when you do not wear the liner with them, they are relative thin.

I also like the Glacier Gloves, but not very breathable. SealSkinz make a great glove to, alot more breathable and thinner.

What model of the sealskinz gloves do you use? I am looking for something pretty form fitting to my hand and not bulky. From their website pictures, it looks like the activity glove may be good?

Thanks

Thanks.....Overlooked them when I was their website. Are they thick or pretty thin so you can do some rigging stuff without removing?

Its easy to rig a ballyhoo with um but idk about trying to tie a bimini, every thing I use its top shot windons with snap swivels. never had a problem reeling fish in or handling them. There thicker than a golf glove but no where near the thickness as a winter glove. Hope that helps, also ROD27 idk about ordering from there site Ive ordered mine from cabelas and bass pro online.
