any amazing new gloves?

Postby Voyager » Mon Nov 19, 2018 9:34 pm

as they keep bringing new better stuff out I wondered if anyone has found the Holy Grail of gloves yet this year?

Man..I hate wearing them, they have always filled up with water to some degree and seriously inhibit my paddling. I always buy them with the tightest fit humanly
bearable...and still they bog up like two pregnant bloater fish.

Any good tips?

I don't find the need for too much heat in the southwest so I wear gloves & boots till they fall apart. Once they develop a hole the water doesn't stay in there. I've toyed with making holes from new but never actually done it.

I use Xcel crab mitts - absolute c*nt to get on & off but work a treat in the depths of winter up here.

I did buy another pair on sale the other day - Billabong 7mm - they look like goalkeepers gloves - ridiculous, impulse buy :lol:

Likewise on the XCEL Lobster mitts (like crab ones only more classy :-D )

Twat to get on, or do anything when they are on, but the nuts for keeping warm hands
