Gloves and Pogies

An important, but sometimes overlooked, item of clothing, gloves protect from the sun, cold, wind, blisters and the sometimes sharp marine environment.

Year round, sun gloves with UPF 50+ rating provide protection against UV damage, with the added bonus of helping to protect your hands not just from rubbing and blistering but also from barnacles and oyster shells - a slip or trip that might otherwise be a trip-ender! We use and recommend Sea to Summit's Eclipse Gloves. 

When the environment is colder, you may want gloves with more warmth insulating properties. Neoprene gloves are one option - make sure the material across your palm is not too thick - so you can still find your holy-moly-crap strap in the event of a wet exit! Also you do not want to increase the diameter of your grip - this will stress your forearms. Alternately you can use paddling mitts, or pogies, that velcro to your paddle shaft and you can slide your hands in and out.
