    Default What Gloves?

    I'll be on a float hunt in the ANWR area in Sept, what would you wear for rowing, and every day wear?

    Thanks

    i think an old guy like you should not need gloves.... you should be able to sit with hands in pockets and let the kids row.

    Wool mittens with removable fingers are my choice. I usually take a couple or 3 pairs along.

    REI carries them: http://www.rei.com/product/305045

    A pair of heavy duty rubber gloves (like commercial fisherman wear) for cold/windy days on the river. I prefer NRS rigging gloves without fingertips for normal days rowing. http://www.nrsweb.com/shop/product.a...30&pdeptid=944

    I'm going with NRS hydroskin gloves for the raft work and a pair of light leather gloves backup and/or for other uses.

    I have some of these and they work great. We use them on remote floats. Perfect glove for rowing on cooler days.

    I typically get cold hands, I just ordered the NRS Reactor gloves. I'll report on them after the trip.

    thanks.

    OH NO!! The reactors? Dude, that is the worst glove ever. Chaffs your fingers and the velcro will wear the skin off your wrist. Ah, just bullshetting you. I am sure they will be fine. Should come in quite handy if the weather gets nasty. Later man.

    Yeah, I kind of doubt you will come back from that trip complaining about your gloves being too warm
