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.

      A:

      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.

      I too have a large hand with pretty much those dimensions. I ordered the XLarge size gloves and they work well for me.

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.

Great paddling gloves

By Paddler

from Michigan

Verified Buyer

Pros

  • Comfortable
  • Durable
  • Good Fit
  • Good Grip
  • Lightweight

Cons

  • Absorbs Water
  • Stays Wet

Best Uses

  • Paddleing Canoe

Comments about NRS Men's HydroSkin Gloves - Closeout:

I race canoes and have wore these gloves for the past four seasons. The gloves hold up very well with some wear around the thumbs with time. My only complaint is that when they do get wet, they stay wet. I have paddled with other NRS gloves that will dry with use but this material does not lend itself to that. I do like the grip as I am able to maintain control of my paddle when they are both wet and dry.

      Comments about NRS Men's HydroSkin Gloves - Closeout:

      Good gloves for spring cool water transition. had to order the the size up (XXL rather than the XL indicated on the sizing chart). Couldn't even get my hands in the XL version

      Service and delivery comments:

      Delivery was prompt ...... much better than the my last two day priority mail NRS shipment that spent over a week on the road including 4 days in Chicago (what happens in Chicago stays in Chicago?)

      Not suitable for winter / cold water

      By Daniel L

      from Seattle, WA

      Verified Buyer

      Pros

      • Lightweight

      Cons

      • Not Waterproof
      • Slippery Grip

      Best Uses

      • Warm Water Boating

      Comments about NRS Men's HydroSkin Gloves - Closeout:

      I'm a guy who normally wears a medium size glove. The sizing guide recommended a medium size based upon the measurements of my hand. When I got the medium, it was too big. The finger lengths were about 1/4 to 1/2-inches too long. I returned it and ordered a small size which was a much better fit. There's plenty of stretch in these gloves so the smaller size gave me a better fit and it's still fairly easy to put on and take off.

      These gloves are NOT waterproof. When paddling in 40 degree air temperature, my hands got uncomfortably cold when the gloves got wet.

      The gloves are somewhat slippery. I needed to use paddle wax or sex wax on my control hand / paddle shaft to maintain a good grip.

      If you're looking for cold water hand protection, these gloves are not suitable for that purpose.
