      Hello,
      The gloves fit pretty tight. Like a wet suit. I have used them in 46 degree weather and may hands stay just toasty.

      A:

      The gloves should fit snugly but not too tight as to make them uncomfortable. They should also not be loose.

      I chose a pair that fit snug, not overly tight, and have found that to work well. I used the size chart and ordered accordingly for myself and my daughter. Perfect fit!

      A:

      You want the gloves to fit tightly like a second skin. Otherwise, they won't be warm and you won't be able to feel the paddle very well. Also, keep in mind they will stretch a bit when they are wet.

      A:

      I found the glove to fit smaller than I thought. With the glove too small, my hands are getting cold. If I were to order again, I would go a size up and order the liner.

      A:

      When paddling your hands get wet. Gloves work most efficiently when they fit fairly snugly. This minimizes the amount of water that can get inside. The HydroSkin material is quite stretchy so even with a snug fit they shouldn't interfere with your mobility. Give us a call, 800.635.5202, if you have more questions.

      No, they do keep your hands warmer and prevent chopping though.

      Hi carol
      I purchased these for a friend. We flat water kayak and the winter has been cold. She never complains her hands are cold even with the water that runs down the paddle. I would say for our use yes they are, I can't for sure how much so if you plan to boat in whitewater. If it helps I have been thinking about buying a pair for myself.
      I hope I have been helpful. Wish it was more.

      No, they are neoprene and act like a wetsuit does (thin later of water warms up to insulate the hands).

      The gloves are not "waterproof" per se, but are more like a wetsuit for your hands. The gloves protect your hands, but your hands will still get wet.

      A:

      They were water resistant, but not waterproof. They held off the water pretty well, though. They ran a little small. I ordered the medium and wish I would have ordered the large - hard to get on/off and it seems my fingers are colder with the gloves fitting so tight. I do like them, though. I think there was an option to add a fleece liner. If so, go for the larger size and get the liner.

      These gloves are as waterproof as a paddling glove can be, which is to say some water does penetrate.  I like them, but they run really small.  I usually wear a small and the medium in these is almost too tight for me.  I use them year round on the coast of California in the bay.  Hope that helps

      They will shed splashed water for sure and will keep your hands dry when you put them under water briefly (waterline below wrists). I can't say anymore about them - I used them for a week paddling Lake Superior in the late Fall and my hands were always warm and dry.

      I use these gloves for  late fall / winter / early spring kayaking. I can't say I've actually fully submerged my hand while wearing them but I've been splashed and gotten them wet and they have still kept my hands  comfortable in these conditions. I've been happy with them. Sorry I couldn't give a yes or no answer. I will have to test that in the future. BTW they do run on the small side.  Hope this helps.

      The material itself is waterproof, but the seams are not. For truly waterproof gloves take a look at the Rogue and Maverick gloves.

    I bought these for a kayak trip down the lower Columbia River. Waters were choppy but otherwise not terribly demanding. I loved the gloves. Without them I would've gotten serious blistering. With them, my hands and palms stayed comfortable and my grip held. No slipping or sticking. I tried others that offered to be waterproof but found them internally uncomfortable, with obvious seams. These felt simply like a smooth layer over my hands and fit perfectly.

    I purchased these to use on the river trout fishing because it is difficult to work my spinning reel with my hunting gloves. I have small hands w/ short fingers and was in between sizes so ordered 2 dif sizes as recommended by customer service-who by the wa was great-unfortunately both sizes were way to small so had to return both. The quality of the gloves appeared good and if they fit, looked like they would make it easier to work my equipment with,but I'm back to my bulky gloves.

      These are great dragonboat paddle gloves. They keep hands warm and pretty dry and have an excellent grip. I have some arthritis in my fingers/hands and they are a little tighter than I expected, but overall are great.

              Comments about NRS Women's HydroSkin Gloves - Closeout:

              Tight fit, especially around fingers caused my circulation to be restricted. Poor circulation is a recurring issue for me, which is why I got the gloves, thinking they'd keep my fingers warm. Luckily, NRS and others advised me that for warmth without restriction I can try mambas or mitts (and they're right - mambas are working out as a great alternative for my needs!).
