All-Weather Performance: CrossPoint Waterproof Gloves Review

When it comes to outdoor adventures, having gear that can keep up with the elements is essential. That’s why I turned to CrossPoint Waterproof Gloves for my recent hunting and fishing excursions, as well as during an overnight Boy Scout camping trip in the rugged mountains of Colorado.

CrossPoint Waterproof Gloves

Here’s what I found:

Crafted with a triple-layer design, these gloves offer unparalleled protection from the elements. The durable knit outer layer, complete with silicone grip, provides a secure hold in any conditions. Meanwhile, the windproof and waterproof middle layer ensures that my hands stay dry and warm, no matter how wet or cold the weather gets. Additionally, the Coolmax inner fiber lining adds an extra level of comfort and moisture-wicking capability, keeping my hands comfortable and dry throughout the day.

One standout feature of these gloves is their touchscreen compatibility. With touchscreen-friendly fingertips, I can easily use my smartphone or GPS device without having to remove my gloves, making navigation a breeze whether I’m tracking my route or checking the weather forecast.

The ergonomic 3D molded fit is another highlight of these gloves. Designed for both men and women, the seamless construction provides a snug, waterproof barrier that’s perfect for a variety of outdoor activities, from cycling and running to winter sports like skiing and snowboarding. Plus, the gloves are equipped with Showers Pass’ exclusive waterproof membrane, which maintains a balance between waterproofing and airflow to reduce sweat buildup and ensure lightweight comfort, even during intense activities.

One thing I particularly appreciated about these gloves is their quick-drying capabilities. Made with quick-drying exterior and interior fabric lining, they’re always ready for daily use, even after getting wet in the rain or snow. The multi-directional stretch fabric also enhances comfort and dexterity, allowing for unrestricted movement whether I’m casting a line or taking aim at my target.

Overall, I’ve been thoroughly impressed with the performance of CrossPoint Waterproof Gloves. Whether I’m out in the field hunting, casting a line while fishing, or braving the elements on a camping trip, these gloves have kept my hands dry, warm, and comfortable every step of the way. Plus, knowing that they’re made in the USA from high-quality materials gives me added confidence in their durability and reliability. If you’re looking for a versatile pair of gloves that can handle whatever Mother Nature throws your way, look no further than CrossPoint Waterproof Gloves.

Salt Life Performance Fishing Shirt Review

When you’re out all day on the boat, you need a solid shirt to keep you cool and dry and protected from the sun.

Salt Life sent us their Sailfish Palms Woven Performance Fishing Shirt to try out and I have to say: this shirt checks all the boxes!

Salt Life Performance Fishing Shirt Review

The Performance Fishing Shirt is a full-button stretch woven shirt made of a wrinkle-free polyester blend. The fabric is treated for UPF30 sun protection and will keep you safe from the sun’s harsh rays.

The shirt is also moisture wicking, making it really comfortable on those long, hot days on the water; keeping you cool for all-day adventures. It also doesn’t stink after a full day outdoors thanks to antimicrobial properties in the fabric.

KÜHL’s AIRSPEED™ Men’s Shirt Review

KÜHL sent our team the AIRSPEED shirt to review and I was immediately impressed.

KÜHL’s AIRSPEED™ Men’s Shirt

Colorado summers where I live are warm and dry with temperatures fluctuating from early morning to evening. Higher in the mountains, you get a wider range and lower low points in the morning and evening.

I found this shirt to be the perfect outdoor companion for those types of days.

For our test, I took this on an overnight camping and hiking trip.

The AIRSPEED is a long-sleeve shirt, which provides ample, UPF 30+, coverage. It was warm enough for cool mornings hiking through the woods. As the day heated up, the cuffs roll up easily to attach to a button located mid-bicep.

It is constructed using three different fabric types:

  • Fabric 1: 72% Nylon, 28% Polyester | 88 GSM
  • Fabric 2: 85% Polyester, 15% Cotton | 160 GSM
  • Fabric 3: (Mesh): 85% Polyester, 15% Cotton | 160 GSM

This combination of fabrics makes the AIRSPEED a breathable, high-performance shirt. The knit panels provide ventilation and stretch for easy movement. The sleeves are designed with five panels for freedom of motion; making it easy to set up the tent or cast a fishing line.

Throughout the testing period, I found this shirt to be extremely comfortable. While hiking with a backpack on, my back did get sticky. It’s worth noting that the fabric isn’t “moisture wicking,” but as KÜHL describes it: “moisture managing.”

But after my hike, as I rested at the camp site, the shirt dried out quickly.

Additional features on this shirt include:

  • Zipper security pocket where I was easily able to stash my driver’s license and credit card
  • Hidden, button-down collar
  • Two button-down chest pockets for additional storage
  • Sunglass cleaner inside bottom left placket

This is an extremely functional and durable shirt. Perfect companion for the outdoors. And it pairs really well with our recently reviewed KÜHL RENEGADE pant.

I am 5’11” and 185 pounds and wear a size large. Found that it fit true to size.

You can purchase this on their website or at your favorite outdoor store.

DKOTA Grizzly’s New Boone Shirt Review

During Outdoor Retailer, I had the chance to visit with the St. Louis based clothing manufacturer, DKOTA Grizzly.

Over the past several years, I’ve been visiting their booths and seeing their products at our local Scheel’s and have always been impressed with their attention to detail when it came to creating functional and stylish clothing.

DKOTA Grizzly specializes in men’s rugged-casual clothing.

Their team walked me through their Spring ’22 line and I could immediately see how their product design had evolved from heavier fabrics to performance fabrics, making DKOTA Grizzly a “crossover brand” that can allow wearers to transition from the gym to work.

A majority of their new products, including the Boone shirt, that we’ll dive into more detail on, were created with active stretch a movement fabrics; making it the perfect spring or summer companion.

DKOTA Grizzly sent us their new Boone shirt to test out.

This shirt is made from a Nylon / Spandex blend. It is light and breathable. During testing, I wore it on a hike during a fairly warm spring day and found it to be very comfortable. The fabric itself was very cool, which I think would be a great pairing in summer when it is a bit warmer. Or, at the least, pairing it with a jacket on cooler days.

The Boone also has two hidden zippered chest pockets. Now, when it comes to button-up shirts, I don’t really ever use my chest pockets. But I liked the style of the zippers. Typically when buttons or snaps, it was always a pain to undo the button. The zippers made it a heckuvalot easier to access.

DKOTA Grizzly also designed this shirt so that there’s a sunglass wipe on the lower hem and a loop inside to hang your sunglasses from.

It’s little things like this that made their product design standout and I found myself constantly surprised.

I’m a big fan of this shirt.

It’s still warming up in Colorado, but as Spring starts to settle in, this shirt will join me on many adventures. Whether I am fishing, paddle boarding, or boating.

The Boone can be found at many of DKOTA Grizzly’s retail partners. If you visit their Find Retailer page, you can locate a retailer near you.

They also created another shirt called the Barkley, which is a short-sleeved variation for what we tested.
