Kayak Paddling Gloves
When shopping for kayak clothing, always be prepared out on the water with the right pair of kayak paddling gloves! Hands can be such a limiting factor, so why not be prepared for every paddling situation? Thickness is one of the main varying factors when choosing a pair of kayak gloves. A thick pair of paddling gloves can reduce dexterity while kayaking, while the thinnest gloves are no match for a cool breeze. The most important thing to consider while choosing the right pair of paddling gloves is fit. A glove that is too tight will be cold, and a glove that is not tight enough will fill with water and become heavy. For maximum paddle control and thermal protection, try a pair of kayaking Pogies! Pogies are an awesome way to protect your hands from wind and water while maintaining precise control over your kayak paddle. If you're looking for a pair of paddling gloves for rafting or rowing, all of the same considerations apply. Our favorite brands making kayak gloves include Kokatat, Stohlquist, and NRS, so check them out!
