When it's too cold to go gloveless, but you don't need winter protection, NRS HydroSkin Gloves will cut the chill without sacrificing grip or feel. Less bulk, total comfort, just enough extra warmth.
  • Great for those in-between-weather paddles, or for when the air's warm but the water's cold (or vice versa).
  • The 0.5 mm neoprene core layer insulates and protects without adding too much bulk.
  • The PowerSpan™ exterior stretches in four directions, allowing unrestricted use of your most important paddling equipment - your hands.
  • The ThermalPlush™ inner lining increases insulation, repels moisture and dries quickly for added comfort.
  • GripCote texture on the palm and fingers provides a better grip and added durability.
  • A water-repellent coating helps the gloves shed water, reducing evaporative cooling.
  • Titanium laminate adhesive reflects heat back in toward your hands making these gloves warmer than standard neoprene gloves of the same thickness.
  • An adjustable hook-and-loop strap secures the glove at the wrist and keeps out debris.

Imported.

I've been looking for years for gloves that are thin and pliable yet warm. Paddling outriggers requires changing grip to switch sides of boat while paddling every few strokes and most gloves too bulky to work well. Dropping a paddle is NOT COOL. These are GREAT! Good grip, flexible on hands, wind proof and warm enough to allow paddling all winter in Oregon. C/S was GREAT to help determine size and model.

If you're looking for gloves that will keep your hands warm while whitewater kayaking, these are not the ones. If anything, they seem to make your hands colder, faster. They are not waterproof (or even water resistant) so they seem to hold the cold water against your skin. Then, they are not wind resistant, so you get evaporative cooling when you're moving or it's windy. It seems like many paddlers (myself included) purchase these as their first pair of gloves, perhaps thinking they look light and unobtrusive (which they are). They quickly find that these gloves aren't particularly well suited to the sport and they are relegated to the bottom of the gear bin. On top of everything else, they have a tendency to tear in the seam right in the valley between the pointer and thumb. This past weekend, a (newbie) friend came very close to frostbite on a river with these. I tried trading her for my gloves, but after one rapid my fingers were throbbing in pain due to the cold. We ended up taping some surgical gloves (carry your first aid kit, kids!) over the top of these to make them a little waterproof and wind blocking. She made it ok, but not very happy. Anyway...I'll give a ringing endorsement to most NRS products, but not this one.

              I have purchased several of these gloves over time, waiting until they are on sale. My brother bought a pair and I liked them, so I started to use them myself. One of NRS's representatives told me these are the only gloves he uses for paddling. I use a full glove as for some reason I get calluses easily. They are very comfortable.

                  A:

                  They would certainly provide you with some warmth. However, the seams are not sealed, so you can get some water leakage, which might be an issue for you. Check out the Rogue Gloves, Item # 25018.01. They have thicker neoprene, sealed seams and a snug fitting cuff, while still having good finger dexterity.

                  They are not waterproof. The are water resistant and will shed drops or splashes, but repeated exposure to water will get them wet.
                  That said, they are neoprene and function much the way a wet suit does. Wet suits do not keep water out, when water gets between the skin and the neoprene,
                  the fabric traps the body heat and heats the thin layer of water between the body and the fabric…making it warmer than the outside air or if you are immersed in frigid water.
                  They also help to retain body warmth if wet and exposed to cold wind or convective heat loss (versus immersion which is conductive…like sitting on cold concrete drains body warmth).
                  If I were going to use these for window washing in cold weather, I’d buy thin polyester glove liners to wear inside as additional ways to keep hands and fingers warm.
                  So size accordingly.
                  I wear mine to paddle a sea kayak when water temps are like 42 degrees to 54 degrees and I’m constantly immersing them into cold water and then exposing them to air temps and winds.

                  Yes. I have used mine power washing in the cold for a couple of hours and
                  they worked fine. They are not perfect, but they certainly delay the onset
                  of discomfort. If you're using serious chemicals or if it's seriously cold
                  you can use thin neoprene disposable gloves as liners for more warmth and
                  chemical protection. Be sure to wash the gloves in fresh water when you
                  finish if you're handling chemicals. I also wear other whitewater gear when
                  it's wet outside as in hiking or yard work in the rain.

                  I gave these gloves a good test this evening with a kayak workout - one hour of kayaking plus loading/unloading and driving, all with the gloves on. Starting temp was 27, ending temp was 25. These provide decent warmth plus dexterity, a great combination. I’ve also washed the car in cold weather with these gloves. But I don’t do windows :-)

                  A:

                  Hello,
                  NRS sent me an e-mail, asking if I could reply to the question below.
                  I purchased these gloves a few years back. I still use them for kayaking and love them.
                  If I were washing windows in the cold, I would use this glove. The glove is meant to get wet, so dunking it into the bucket of wash water is not a problem. Your hands will get wet too, as this glove is not meant to keep your hand dry. However, this glove will keep your hand warm when wet. The glove also has a high amount of flexibility and dexterity, so gripping the sponge or brush will not be a problem. The only caveat I think you need to consider is whether or not the washing solution could damage the neoprene material of the glove. A mild washing solution (dish soap in water) I don't think will be a problem. However, a washing solution with strong chemicals, like ammonia for instance, could eat away at the neoprene.

                  Deborah, the sizing is different for our men's and women's HydroSkin Gloves. If you go with the sizing chart on the glove you should be able to get a good fit.
