what are you guys wearing?
I've been using oneill psycho DL 1.5mm gloves, but they're a little stretched out and leaky so I need something new
used mittens, and I have some 5mm xcel lobster claw mittens but they strain the finger that sticks out after a lot of paddling
I also find 5 finger gloves strain my little finger and ring finger when paddling... 1.5mm gloves are fine but I have a feeling 3mm gloves will be worse

so what should I get? confused to say the least...

Xcel crab claw mitts are utter shite - build quality a disaster and difficult to get on. I'm now back on a pair of old Alder 3mm 5 finger gloves I thought I lost and they work fine
