Fingerless gloves are great in summer, but for year-round paddling, it’s smart to have a pair of neoprene gloves for extra protection. These HydroSkin NRS gloves are made with 0.5mm neoprene, a ThermalPlush inner lining for a bit of insulation, a fitted wrist cuff, and DWR coating — all coming together to form a great glove to cut the chill.
