  • Thick, 5 mm neoprene, with titanium laminate adhesive, provides outstanding insulation.

I have a pair of these and they are great and use them all the time and keep my hands nice and warm. Days when the air temp have been 28degrees my hands are warm. This pair was purchased for my daughter who is 8 and they are not too big at all and she loves them. When we were out in 35 degree weather she was not once cold. The do not effect her ability to paddle, roll, or have fun!

They work fine for kayaking but could be larger especially in the wrist area. Getting them on and off with light gloves on is difficult. Price is also a bit high for the product. I mainly purchased these for hang gliding in winter and they're just too small to use with other gloves on - even light weight gloves. They'd be a much better product if they had an adjustable wrist size area. They work OK without gloves on but since you'd really only use them in cold weather it would be best if you could get them on easily with light gloves.

      Comments about NRS Mambas:

      I was participating in a fun winter kayak race down the Lackawanna River in Scranton, PA. It was going to be 28 degrees which gave me the perfect opportunity to purchase some cold weather gear. First I ordered the Toaster Mitts. However, after seeing the 5mm Neoprene Mambas I took a chance and ordered those, too. I liked the idea of being able to have a better grip on the paddle. The problem was that I needed the Mambas asap. The race was in two days. Paid the extra $15 for two day shipping and they arrived on time!

      The day of the race it was 24 degrees. At first I had a thin glove underneath that held hand warmers. However, once I got into the water the current took me downstream and in trying to turn I tipped and my right hand went in the water. I had no grip with a wet glove on the inside so I took it off. Fearing my hand would now freeze I got it back into the Mambas no problem. From that point on it was smooth sailing! The Mambas were so warm and comfortable. I could not get over how warm they were on a 24 degree day. I even took my hands out a few times, because I got stuck on some rocks, but as soon as they went back into the Mambas they got warm again. I know that I only used them once but I'm certain they'll continue to provide warmth and comfort. People were admiring them, too, so I recommended them. Thanks for a great product!

      I paid the extra $15 for two day shipping and they arrived on time! I love how quickly the items ship out. If you're in need of something right away you can count on great shipping service with NRS!

        Comments about NRS Mambas:

        I was quite skeptical about how warm they would be when my fingers were quite cold with gloves on. However my hands and fingers have been warm and toasty using the poagies alone. Even in 38 degree F water and 30 degree air.

                I would get the ones with the snaps because I have them and they will keep you nice and warm. can't speak for the titanium mambas.

                The snaps work very well and make for a less cumbersome
                removal/entering process when conditions don't require full coverage.

                A:

                The HydroSkin Mambas have 0.5 mm neoprene in them, much thinner than these 5 mm Mambas. They're great for those times when you need a bit of warmth for comfort. They don't have snaps but have hook-and-loop straps that you can use to wrap them around the paddle shaft when it warms up and you don't need them for a while.
