Much depends on how actively you trim sheets
, whether you have finger problems, weather
, and personal preference.
- Ronstan Sticky Race, long finger (means thumb and index are free)
- Harken Black Magic long
- Some dinghy sailors like Atlas Fit with the finger tips cut off. Snug fit.
Cool weather (40-50F)
- Musto Pro
- Gill 3-season
- Heat packs can help
- Ski gloves. Have to take them off to do anything, so take something else too.
- Various coated gloves for very wet. I like insulated double coated Hyroflectors for the kayak, better than any kayak glove.
Various work gloves can work--I've used them when I left sailing gloves at home--but the grip generally stinks, they don't protect the tendons as well, and they don't last as long.
