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.
  • While they may not be totally waterproof, the glued and blind-stitched seams minimize water entry for better hand comfort.
  • 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.

Okay. You're hands are cold. You're best gloves work well most of the time but you have poor circulation and the tight fit around the fingers causes them to go numb sometimes. Pogies you say? Sure they work pretty darn good too but one issue that some will bring up is that they're pretty much locked into one spot on your paddle so it's hard to shift your grip quickly up and down the shaft if need be...another is that it can be slightly annoying if you lose your paddle in rough seas/high winds and you resort to your backup paddle, now minus your warm pogies until (and if) you can retrieve it! The solution is to use these well designed neoprene mittens. After you put the first one on it's somewhat difficult to pull the second one on without the benefit of your fingers but once on you'll appreciate the warmth it gives and the freedom to slide your grip wherever you like on your paddle shaft. At first I was wishing the toaster mitts would come with "hydrocuffs" like on my "maverick" gloves from NRS, which are great for keeping the water from entering at the cuff line. After using the mittens though, I realized that, unlike gloves, without the aid of your fingers it would be somewhat difficult if not impossible to pull on the second mitten due to the tight fitting nature of the hydrocuff. The elastic strap does a fairly good job of sealing most of the water out...if water does get in, the thick neoprene of these mittens will insulate and keep your hands warm... which Is what anyone who wears a wetsuit already knows to be true. One worry that I had was that in an emergency, how difficult would it be to remove these mittens in a hurry? Like maybe you needed to quickly use your knife to cut the net you got tangled in near the secret military base where you shouldn't have been paddling near to ("sign? what sign?!) or to grab your camera and film the loch ness monster before it went back underwater (well...it could happen:). No worries, It takes only a second or two to pull the strap and take off the mitten and even with the strap on I could pull the mitten off with little difficulty... Fits good, warm, versatile grip on the paddle and the next time you see "bigfoot" and you need to grab your camera... no worries. All kidding aside, your hands will love these mittens:)

I liked the old type better

The old version of this product the one with Hydro cut was almost a perfect product for paddling with greenland paddle in the cold sea with ice flooding around in the wintertime.

The old version of this product the one with Hydro cut was almost a perfect product for paddling with greenland paddle in the cold sea with ice flooding around in the wintertime.

But the serious draw back of this new version is the wrist part of the mitts. Being with out the Hydro cut this model seem to be much more tight around the wrist so on its own you can feel the blood flow slow down to your finger actually making them colder, When adding a rubber cuff on my kokatat under it i simply cant use the mitts and am still using my old once even tho they have hole on the side of the thumbs. My friend end up cutting about 4 cm of the top of the mitts to be able to use them. I hope NRS will find a way to fix it in futur model, or they could bring back the old type. Then i will be happy to give 5 stars

Comments about NRS Toaster Mitts - Closeout:

These are my go-to mitts for the frosty days when I wouldn't want to be on the water, but do it anyways (30ºish F). The mitts fit well, have a natural articulated shape, and appear to be well made. They are very, very warm and being neoprene, don't really breathe. The closures are a nice velcro wrist wrap, and can be opened easily with a quick bite and pull to the tab. The grip surface is a soft rubber that really does a nice job of staying in control of the shaft, but not altering the natural sensation of a paddle stroke. The thumb joint area has so far held up well, and shows no obvious signs of wear after roughly 30 or so days out over the last two months. Suggestion for improvement would be to add a simple wrist slip leash, so that the mitts don't disappear when balancing a tippy craft on rough water.

              they do keep your hands warm, even after getting wet. It takes a few minutes, but they do. Wind will affect how warm they get - if it's windy, not so much. Calm, pretty ok.
              They do make a pretty good seal and mine don't tend to take on very much water - even when submerged...

              A:

              Paul, as with any neoprene "wetsuit" type garment, water flushing in and out will draw heat from the body. However, the hook-and-loop wrist strap, especially if cinched over a wrist gasket, will minimize water flushing. Once emptied of water the glove will continue to hold in your body heat.

              A:

              They work pretty well. You will get water in them even in normal paddling but it warms up pretty quickly. I have used gloves and pogees, and these are warmer than either one. I prefer pogees when paddling in cold windy weather when the water isn't too cold, but when the water is icy they don't keep my hands warm enough. Gloves were by far the coldest in any conditions. With these mitts I don't even notice the cold water.
              I have heard other say that it is best to go for a size larger than your hands. If they are tight fitting they don't keep you as warm.

              They are warmer than 3 mm gloves, and much easier to get on and off. Work fine in subfreezing temps. I'm not a fan of pogies so these are my best choice in winter. They also dry better than gloves.

              This mittes are the best that i have found for water around frezen. I guess it depends on the air temperature also. When playing in sea around 32f or 0c even in slushy condition they seem to be fine. But your hands do get wet. I sometimes get cold when paddling in air temp around 10f/-10c when im warming up.

              Paddled today (Dec 7) with them here in Wisconsin. In the mitt your bare fingers are in contact with each other which I think is the key advantage in getting them rewarmed. I've tried several options with glove/mitts, this was my most vulnerable body part to keep warm, and these have been the best alternative I've found.

              I always use liners with the mittens.  I don't put the mittens on until after I have entered kayak and put on spray skirt.  So depending on how cold it is you are usually fine putting on skirt with just the liners on your hands.  Definitely get a pair of NRS liners to use with the mittens, they are bar none the best glove liners I have ever owned.

              The NRS Toaster Mitts don't hinder your paddling or your wet exit in any way. They fit snugly so become much a part of your hand. I have had to wet exit with them on and have had no trouble finding the skirt loop to pull. If you are unsure a good option is to attach a small ball, like a tennis ball, to the end of the loop so you can find it easily and get a good grip. I haven't needed to do that but I know others who prefer that extra security. They definitely keep my hands warmer in cold weather so are worth it. They are a little more "clunky" than gloves but worth it for the warmth and you get used to them.

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.

              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.

              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.
