      A:

      I think you'll be fine in the XL. Exchanges are easy and free. If you're in a hurry, order both and send one back.

      I live and boat in the San Juan Islands, and rely on my boat for transportation. I needed gloves that would keep my hands warm in the wind and rain, yet be flexible and lightweight enough to easily handle lines and controls. I also am a petite woman and most gloves are too large in the palm or have finger lengths that are way too long. The XS in these fit my palm quite nicely (I started with the S based on the sizing instructions) and the fingers are only a shade too long. I am able to use them in the above conditions, and they keep my hands fairly warm. An improvement would be to reverse the position of the Velcro wrist straps. The "tooth" part of the Velcro is largely exposed and snags many fabrics.

      I've been looking for paddling gloves that would not wear a hole at the thumb web space after 4-5 days of paddling. These seemed to fit the bill except the wrist band was uncomfortably high and tight. The fit was uncomfortable enough that I wore a different pair of gloves instead of these on the North Slope river trip I just came finished.

        Comments about NRS Paddler's Gloves:

        Great fit, keep my fingers and hands dry and warm in the cool waters I kayak in winter and spring. Velcro strap keeps the fit tight. The fingers are maneuverable so I can snap and unsnap ties without taking them off. I should have gotten these many winters ago!

              Ok, I know NRS does not say these are waterproof, but I feel into the trap of taking reviews literally and some reviews can mislead you and I don't want you to fall into the same trap.
              THESE GLOVES ARE NOT WATERPROOF

                  Love the padding on the inside/thumb ... perfect for canoeing and I think they will last a long time. Most of my gloves have worn thin due on the control hand or grip due to the rotation of the paddle. Grip is perfect ... not too 'grippy' and yet very durable. Thanks NRS!
