I sail in Scotland right through the winter and these are the best open palm mits I have found. The good thing about them is you can fold them back on your wrist so they are there when you need them. I can do this when sailing along by using my teeth. They are one of the few gloves that don’t give the dreaded forearm cramps. Also have a look at the other conventional gloves I have for sale. They work well but you are best to put them on dry then leave them on so it is a matter of personal preference.
