Great paddling specific gloves
I’ve tried bicycle gloves (too much padding, slow to dry, sloppy fit when wet) and fly fishing gloves (not form fitting enough, bulky, slow to dry). These gloves have exquisite fit and low bulk needed to protect hands from blisters and callouses. Without any leather construction and padding they should dry relatively quick.
Love the fit and construction, but still gave me blisters.
Giving these 3 stars because they’re good quality gloves and fit me perfectly, but they still had issues (for me). I bought them to use for kayaking to reduce the friction on my hands when using a carbon paddle (the shaft has ridges on it that chafe over time). Like some reviewers have mentioned, I ended up with blisters (I didn’t get blisters barehanded). The reason for my blisters is that the shaft of the paddle wants to “settle” in right where the cuttoff fingers meet the second crease of my finger. If the finger material extended to one more knuckle (leaving just the end of the fingers exposed), it would be perfect for me. I’m going to continue using the gloves and see if my fingers toughen up or or perhaps adjust my paddling technique. Or I may have to switch to full-fingered gloves. I’ll report back.
Bought these for a 4 day sea kayaking adventure off Vancouver island. Had never kayaked before. I put these on at the beginning of the day, and then forgot about them. Never had a blister, kept the sun off my hands. and dried out quickly when wet.
Liked enough to buy again
My first pair are still going after three seasons of sea kayaking. Okay, so they are a bit worn enough that I bought a second pair but have not had to bring the second pair out yet. The gloves are comfortable, keep my hands from becoming leather on the back side from too much sun and no blisters on the palm side. I have a few other items from Sea to Summit and am so far very happy with all products they produce. Please keep up the good work!
Gloves worked very well for 5 days on the Sea. Always comfortable even with being saltwater soaked for days.
Great summer hiking gloves
So, I use these for summer hiking to prevent raw hands for trekking poles and for grip while scrambling. I know this isnt their intended purpose but they are the best, most durable option I have found that are light and breatne well. I sweat a lot, so my hands are inevitably wet. I need the extra protection while using something that deals well with being wet in warm conditions. They have saved my hands for many slip/fall related injuries as well.
The gloves work well rowing my waveski in the ocean.
The gloves work well rowing my waveski in the ocean. I still got one blister wearing them but then my skin toughened up and I stopped getting blisters. Without the gloves my hands could get raw and sometimes bleed. Also I had a different pair of gloves that ripped and so far these have not.
Nice gloves for the water
I got these gloves for kayaking. Good padding. Nicely constructed. Reasonably fast-drying. They run on the small side.
great sun protection and grip. love these gloves. fit great
