I was wearing blisters on my hand during each kayak fishing trip. So I decided to do something about it. I picked these because of the open finger design, leaving fingers free to tie knots etc. I bought this pair of paddle gloves and solved the problem. But I do have one complaint. The gloves bunch up in the palm when you grip your paddle. This seems to interfere with the handling of the paddle a bit and feels a bit awkward. I still feel these gloves are well worth buying. Now Harbinger has come out with sport specific gloves for paddling only. I have yet to try them but look forward to doing so.
The gloves have sanded Neoprene on Top of hand. Embossed neoprene palm, Visa® Terry forefinger and thumb for moisture management. Breathable Mesh fingers improve air flow as 3/4 length fingers protect and improve grip while staying flexible. Fully adjustable wrist closure system.
