NRS Sizing Chart
3.6 out of 5
Seam broke on 2nd use
November 22, 2004
Gloves seemed effective and fit well the first time I wore them. I really like how grippy the palms are. But when removing them after the second use the seam above the thumb split. I've now got a hole about an inch long running down the side of the glove. Good fit and nice sticky palm but may be a bit too fragile.

Used for dragonboat on a carbon fiber paddle and these absolutely will not let you slip! stretches and fits tight...actually lost one and bought another pair! probably not for cold/severe weather.
Just what I needed!

Based upon an earlier review, I bought these gloves to use while Dragon Boating in Florida using a carbon fiber paddle. I was primarily concerned with how well they gripped the paddle, and also how well they prevented blisters on my fingers. I am QUITE PLEASED with the gloves, as they work great. I was surprised at how easy they are to take off and put back on, after getting them wet. And they don't seem to get too waterlogged.

I bought hese gloves because of the thin material, that I thought would make putting the skirt around a kayak cockpit easier -- but all the seams around the fingers make the glove more clumsy than a thicker pair. Leaks through all the seams. Worst of all, the gloves invert easily when you take them off, and if they're wet, it'll take you 10 minutes to get them on again. Hardly practical for a day of active kayaking. I soon replaced the ones I bought with much better gloves made by LL.Bean and O'Neill.
Nice glove, mild weather only

Like the fit of the glove. Provided a secure grip on paddle. The advertisement should suggest it as a mild weather glove.
Great Feel, Poor Quality
November 28, 2008
I love the feel of these gloves in use. They are perfect for water temperatures above 62 degrees. But the quality of construction is poor. I had to return for exchange my latest pair after only one month of use due to a tear in the seam, and my first pair tore at the seam after only one season of use. Altrec was great regarding the exchange. Why does NRS continue to make a flawed glove?

Good fit, good grip . . . good PWC driving glove.
Perfect for inflatable kayaking

My husband and I recently bought inflatable kayaks for paddling the many rivers and lakes near us in SW Colorado. These paddling gloves fit perfectly and add just the right amount of warmth for the chilly spring runoff.
A Good Glove

good fit ... nonslip grip on paddles, and my fingers were dry and warm
Ok gloves but needs improvements

This is my 4th pair of paddling gloves and while they serve their purpose they're not my favorite. The gloves are light weight and as such will not keep your hands super warm. However the grip and tactile feedback is great for a paddling glove. The do not block wind all that well so when wet, they can be cold due to evaporation. My main gripe is that the fingers are too long. I have normal sized hands and conistently wear a size mens large in ( stohlquist,sealine, and warmers) and they fit great but the size large AND size medium NRS gloves have too long of fingers which makes the gloves cumbersome and not too fun to wear. If you have really long fingers these should fit you perfectly, if not, check out stohlquist and sealine gloves.Pros: Great value, Cons: Bad design, not too warm, dont fit that well

I use these gloves for dragon boating in California and have never had a problem. I am on pair #2 now since i lost one glove. Comfortable gloves with good grip for paddling.
