Swiftwater rescue can be extremely cold and demanding work. That's why we made the NRS Reactor Rescue Glove extremely warm and tough. When lives are on the line, you'll want these gloves on your hands.
  • NRS Reactor Gloves feature 3.5 mm neoprene with titanium laminate adhesive provide maximum warmth when you're working in the coldest conditions.
  • The palm and fingers are constructed of IronCote™, a rubberized, armored, synthetic leather, that gives excellent grip and durability. Its essential for rope handling and other demanding physical work.
  • Fingers are pre-curved to relieve hand fatigue while gripping paddles and ropes.
  • Seams are glued and blind-stitched for durability and warmth.
  • PowerSpan 4-way stretch fabric provides increased finger mobility.
  • GripCote on the backs of the fingers helps prevent wind chill and evaporative cooling.
  • A soft strip of fleece on the inner side of your hand and forearm is perfect for wiping the sweat from your brow after a successful rescue.
  • Wristband with hook and loop closure ensures a secure fit.

      A:

      Made in Thailand City of Rayong, used them a couple of weeks ago paddling the Colorado River outside of Austin Texas. They are a whole lot better than the 'Warmers' brand.. Probably use them next week on the Illinois River in NE Oklahoma. Happy/Warm padding.

      A:

      I don't know where these gloves are manufactured. They were a gift for my son... he picked them out and he loves them. He lives in northern Idaho and he kayaks year round. He's an aerospace engineer and believe me, he carefully researches all of his outdoor gear.
      I hope that this helps!

Ever since NRS stopped making this glove with the raw neoprene palms (Reactor Glove), I've been trying to find a replacement. This glove is not it, because the palm material won't allow a good grip of a paddle. I even used paddle wax, but they are way too slippery. In Alaska we need warm gloves. Problem is, NRS doesn't make a warm glove with raw neoprene palms anymore. I'm sending these back.

    Cons

    • Slippery Grip

    Best Uses

      Comments about NRS Reactor Rescue Gloves:

      I use these for kayaking in below-zero weather. My hands are usually quite warm, so I don't need gloves unless it's really cold. I've found that these work for me to -10°C. As one reviewer commented, they are quite slippery. I solved that by applying some paddle wax to the shaft of my carbon-fibre paddle. They are easy to get on when they're still dry, and not-so-easy when they're wet, but still easier than other gloves, like my hydroskins. I have decent dexterity: I can get my sprayskirt on and do things like open hatches, zip up a PFD, and close my helpmet strap while wearing them. I've used them for a year now, and they hold up nicely.

            Comments about NRS Reactor Rescue Gloves:

            I used these for a very aggressive two day ocean and swift water rescue class. The gloves kept my hands warm and the curved fingers became an advantage while paddling as well as using the glove to help me swim. In addition, the gloves were perfect for the use of rope during each training evolution and were easy to manipulate my PFD straps, clips, etc.

                DO NOT BUY THESE FOR PADDLING!!!!

                I bought these hoping to use them paddling but they are no good for that. The grips have aramid fibres coated with some sort of plastic like coating. The would be great for gripping rope but don't for a second think you'll be able to hold on to a paddle. I ground down the grip material with a dremmel and that made them a little better but still to slippery to use paddling, (no one could keep up the death grip you have to have on your paddle). I tried coating them with aquaseal but that was just as bad so I ground it off. I thne coverd the palms with Sugru which actually worked really well but the gloves are so thick that your hands tire quickly of holding a grip. I had to give up on thess and right them off.
