I find these gloves to be stiff and thick. The fit was tight and unforgiving. Suggest the NRS paddling gloves instead.

Having size XS hands it was great to find a mfgr who can fit them. Short fingers & thumb, mesh & neoprene hand w. slightly stretchy terry thumb to cushion that blister-prone area. Go on easily wet or dry. Do not feel heavy even after repeated immersion. Helps paddle grip and compensates for small hands on regular paddle ferrule. After 6-8 hours of paddling, lifting etc the velcro "flexfit" cuffs stay completely in place. Forget they are on. Leave them on loading my kayak. Colors: royal blue & black. Five sizes up to XXL -->9 inches hand circumference around the knuckles). My XS hands are 6" around by comparision.
Love these. Under $20 bucks shipped, not the most expensive item but one of the most valued. Vastly increased my technique & allowed me to paddle longer. Can't nitpick one thing, have to give 'em a 10.
