    Q:

    Thanks for Boater Glove recommendation and the look ahead to 2014, but I do have a follow up regarding the "Amara® synthetic leather palms" in these (and any other) Boater's Gloves. Does the synthetic leather material from which the palm is constructed absorb or repel water? If all glove materials in contact with the skin shed water, ie dry out quickly, then Eureka you have found it. If on the other hand the palms get wet and stay wet, then sorry to say such a glove offers little beyond the inexpensive, sturdy, synthetic backed,faux leather water absorbing mechanics gloves I've tried before - with the prune like results described above.

      A:

      If I dunk my hands in the water for long enough, the palm of the gloves gets wet and stays a bit wet. Whether wet or dry, I do not get rub spots and blisters on my hand' grip areas (especially my thumbs) if I use these gloves. My hands do not get to be prunes since I am not leaving them in the water and the gloves just don't hold enough water to do that, even when I frequently dip my hands in the water on a hot day to cool down. The gloves give me the protection I need wet or dry.

      I've been paddling with these gloves for about 5 years haven't had any
      problem with water absorption.

      The synthetic leather does absorb water and still dries quite quickly.

      A:

      I have used the fingered version of this glove in a 70 hour ultramarathon and had pruned hands, but minimal lost skin. They dry over about 20minutes while in use daytime and about 40 min (depending humidity) in overnight use. My attempt at an answer: they absorb water and dry fairly quickly while in use. The interior is not tacky when moist and thus is less likely than work gloves to pull off soft pruned skin.

      These gloves do NOT repel water. Your hands will get wet. They do pretty well at preventing blisters. I have never had pruny hands as a result of wearing these.
      NRS does sell water proof gloves. I own a pair. They work well for cold water boating.

    Q:

    My goal in paddling gloves is mostly to avoid chaffing and blisters during recreational paddling including class II+ - and not warmth. As no wrist closure is perfect, I expect any glove to get water in it. As I see the problem, it's that the water stays in the glove and I end up with dish pan hands that make me wonder why I'm wearing hand "protection" at all. Sweat alone will do that to you. I have been impressed with how neoprene sheds water, while learning to shy away from other materials for fear they will hold water against my skin. This need to shed water has me considering fingerless gloves, as they ought to drain, and at least part of my hand is constantly air drying. Maybe the ideal would be a perforated neoprene or neoprene palm with woven synthetic back. Might not one of those new water phobic materials produce a glove that really dries quick?

      A:

      Paddling = getting wet. Our truly waterproof gloves like the Rogues and Mavericks are neoprene, but as you say they seal in your sweat. The backs of these Boater's Gloves breathe freely and dry quickly and the open fingers also promote drying. We have a similar glove coming out in 2014 that will have perforations in the palm.

    NRS Boaters gloves are the best!

    These gloves are lightwieght, handy, and give me a sure grip when paddling in local waters like L.I. Sound, Mt.Sinai Harbor, and Setauket Harbor.
    I love their fit and durability.

    So as the title says - I have a like/dislike relationship with these paddling gloves. I whitewater kayak and SUP mostly. Got these gloves as a gift per requested by yours truly. Thanks, Easter Bunny...bawk bawk!
    However I've used them 3 times and they are already showing battle scars.
    I'll start off on a positive note with my likes: They are very lightweight and the sun protection really works. Well, doesn't help when my sunscreen on my arms washes off and I get weird farmer glove tan - but the gloves built-in UV protection does work even when wet! They are pretty comfortable. I attribute it to them being fingerless so less like a boa constrictor feel on your fingers while holding a paddle.
    Sorry, NRS but I gotta list my dislikes now. The hook and loop closure is uber tacky. Well that's a good thing and a bad thing. Wish there was a different way of locking 'em on your wrists. The hook part of one of my gloves got caught on the delicate spandex that is on the top of the glove. Mind you I liked the spandex - soft, light and stretchy and keeps Mr. Cancer rays off my hands - but I now have a hole on one glove. The other complaint is the faux leather palm. It started pilling really badly the first day I took them on a whitewater course. They are also very slippery and make you grip your paddle tighter than you normally would. Trips 2 & 3 were on the SUP. Again, slickery gloves. Even more pilling and wear.
    I wanted these mainly for sun protection and to prevent blisters. So far, they do both - but for how long? and also at the expense of a slippery grip especially when the gloves are wet. Sadly, I think this relationship isn't going to last must longer considering the wear the gloves are showing after only 8-10 hours of use.
    Is this relationship doomed?

        I bought them to compliment some neoprene gloves for when it isn't as cold (air or water) so that my palms don't get blisters on long rafting trips. They are very comfortable and seem as if they will last quite some time.

          I bought these for an endurance kayaking trip, but was really disappointed when they showed up and they did not fit my hands, despite me following the online sizing chart. They were too loose in the fingers. I didn't want to risk even worse blisters, so I didn't bother wearing them.

          Service and delivery comments:

          Delivery took much longer than anticipated.
