Interesting... As I read the initial request: The gloves were for her husband and his brothers. This sailing camp is for a week. They do this camp every year and it's a big deal. Even though it's 'only' one event each year, they are sailing for several days with a regatta format and gloves ARE important even if it's just for 5 hours a day. Morale to my story. Sometimes 'one' can read into things way toooooo much. Sometime not nearly enough! Don't forget.. There is no sarcastic font. Do you wear gloves only on breezy days? Would you have these brothers come home with bloody digits? Remember Wraun. If it's gonna happen, it's gonna happen out there! Also, thanks so much for taking one for the team with Calif's comments. I though surely it was me he was referring to... just sayin'...

Re: Clueless Sister-in-law Needs Help!

I have a pair of GILL Deckhand gloves that have worked out good so far for light use.

Re: Clueless Sister-in-law Needs Help!

Personally I don't wear gloves. I tried some once and it just didn't feel right. I felt like I could not let the sheets slip through my hands fast enough when needed and just felt vulnerable to injury.
I guess the skin on my hands is tough (like a real man, j/k) because I have never gotten a blister from sailing.

You stud! (j/k)
Don't it get cold up thar where you sail? Cold wet hands on wet sheets on a breezy day can be an interesting combo. I have found it's not about the blister its about the grip. PS-You let the sheets 'slip' through your hands? I must be doing something Wraung...

Re: Clueless Sister-in-law Needs Help!

Once you have had a rope burn you start wearing gloves (don't ask how I know)

Re: Clueless Sister-in-law Needs Help!

Whatever gloves you get - remember the string that joins them together that runs up the sleeves.......

Well regarding the lump of coal, that's between you and santa but likely I am the one at risk cuz we all know He knows who is naughty and nice - LOL...

I'll try to play nicer...

(I can just imagine OP reading this stuff and going, "It's just a pair of gloves. What's wrong with these people...)

Re: Clueless Sister-in-law Needs Help!

I have to wonder what the original poster is thinking of this discussion. If she is curious and has a "Let's you and him fight" menatality she might be continuing to watch our members duke it out. If she is less aggressive she's tuned the cruisersforum out completely and won't recommend it to husband and brother-in-law.

Each of us has a reason for being here on the forum. Mine is to get help with boating issues and to help those who might have questions. Other forums are for those who want to pick fights by denigrating other's sailing abilities and boating gear choices. I don't visit other forums.

kind regards,

Re: Clueless Sister-in-law Needs Help!

Honestly I've mostly been reading the responses and laughing - LOL .

In any case - I've decided on the Gill Pro Racers for an extra special top-of-the-line gift for the boys . Maybe I'll try to take a picture at Xmas and post it here for you guys to see the smiles - totally worth it .

For now, I'm holding off on ordering for a bit so I can try to spy on their motorcycle glove sizes and compare their hands to my own before making a final size decision .

Re: Clueless Sister-in-law Needs Help!

Not pretty but - - -

I ran into Gloves, discarded 2 - 4 times a shift in an auto factory used by the workers (mostly ladies with small hands). They were worn to prevent knife cuts from utility knives. Gloves were Kevlar knitted yarn. I wore one pair for four years while doing mountain climbing and found that a sliding rope would not damage the glove and that I would not get burned from a sliding rope. Even my chain saw wouldn't cut through.
Try a search kevlar cut resistant work gloves. (Like this)

Re: Clueless Sister-in-law Needs Help!

Capt J. You could cut the fingers off but probably wreck the scissors. I found them comfortable even in very hot weather and hard work. The fabric blend wicks well. Perhaps they could be made stylish with colored parmanent markers.
