NRS Toaster Mitts are the warmest paddling "glove" on the water. Its mitten-style design lets your fingers snuggle together for warmth while its pre-curved shape and grippy palm let you grip your paddle with comfort and confidence.
  • Water-shedding 3.5-mm raw neoprene on the backs and sides protects your hands from cold and evaporative cooling.
  • We've used tough, grippy 2.5-mm raw neoprene in the palms for better paddle feel and control.
  • Pre-curved finger pocket ensures a comfortable grip on oar or paddle, yet is flexible enough not to limit your hands' mobility.
  • Soft, fleece-like VaporLoft™ lining repels water and dries instantly for superior warmth and comfort.
  • Neoprene cuffs feature gauntlet-style elastic hook-and-loop closures to help keep out water.
  • Glued and blind-stitched seams keep the Toaster Mitt dry inside except during prolonged submersion.
  • Soft brushed fleece panels on the backs of the thumbs are handy for wiping your nose or brow.
  • A titanium laminate adhesive layer in the material reflects heat back to your hands for even more warmth.
  • Nylon bite tab helps you get your mitt on even when you're wet and cold.

    Q:

    Do you have measurements for what size mitten I would need? I think I need an XXL. If it is backordered can I be notified when it is in stock?

      A:

      I own these in a XXL. In most gloves I am a true XL, but I wanted to be
      able to wear some lightweight gloves or liners under the mitts in really
      cold paddling conditions (I've worn them on a few coastal paddles with
      temperatures down in the teens). Without liners, they fit a bit loose with
      plenty of room in the fingers. Of particular note for this size are the
      long finger openings. I usually max out on gloves and these had plenty of
      length to spare.
      If you have BIG hands, get these.

      Can't say for sure but these seem to measure large. My large maverick gloves seem on the small side but my large toaster mitts are a little too big and I'm swimming in the XL.

      I think these gloves run a little large. I measured my hands by the guide on the NRS website and my mitts are bigger than I would like. One thing I can say is they keep my hands warm. I have used the wrap gloves you put on your paddle and didn't like them. The mitts work great and I'd buy them again just one size smaller.

    How hard is dealing with nose plugs wearing these?

      A:

      You'll probably have to take off the mitts to work nose plugs. But they
      really are warm. if you get extra large poggies, and use both the mitts
      and the poggies at the same time your hands will never be cold

      This is very warm. But it really has draw back when it comes to fine
      movement. I imagion it would be similar as trying to do that with oven
      mitts on. Its hard to get everything in one product. Warm tends to be bulky

    Q:

    what's the difference between these and the ones on closeout?
    Asked on 1/7/2013 by waterbound

    1 answer

    • Staff Reviewer

      A:

      The closeout model has our HydroCuff opening, a "gasket-like" seal above the wrist. The new model has a more gauntlet-like upper, secured with a hook-and-loop strap. It also has our VaporLoft lining, a fleecey material that doesn't absorb water, so the glove insides dry more quickly.

    Very warm but bulky

      Best Uses

        Comments about NRS Toaster Mitts:

        Warm and water-proff. but tight at the wrist, so hard to slip on and off. They are bulky, so you have no use of your hands when you are in them and they are tuff to get out of.

          Comments about NRS Toaster Mitts:

          I do a lot of coastal sea kayaking and surf play. And I love my pogies. So I got these as the backup when I put my paddle down during breaks on the beach and such. It's also just a backup in the case of cold hands out on the water, or in a swim situation. It's very difficult to pull properly fitted neoprene gloves on wet hands. These I can slip into fairly easily. And I could definitely use them for actual paddling. There's still a good feel for the paddle through them. The obvious restriction of no individualized fingers for dexterity exists, but, as always, mittens keep fingers warm in the extreme cold so much better than gloves. And your hands warm up much more quickly in mittens. When it comes down to survival, cold numb fingers don't perform, and you would be so incredibly overjoyed to exchange that feeling for warm hands, even if that means in a mitten. Mittens have their uses, and these seem great for my purposes.

                I purchased these for winter kayaking in Northern Michigan. I've used them once on December 13th and the temperature at the beginning of the trip was 15 degrees and got down to 10 degrees by the end. It was about a 2 1/2 hour trip. My hands did start to get a little cold not long into the trip so I put on a pair of thin work gloves under the mitts and was warm the rest of the trip.

                  Comments about NRS Toaster Mitts:

                  I have poor circulation in my hands but do a lot of marathon canoe paddling and training. Only a waterproof mitten like this will keep my hands warm enough when the temp is below about 45F-50F in spring and fall. It's not as comfortable as bare hands, but these are about as comfortable as you can make them and still have enough insulation. Much more comfortable and warmer than gloves. You do need to be diligent about airing and drying them out after each use, and since I'm on salt water rinsing with freshwater as needed.
