Traditional sailing gloves offer protection and grip and are available in men’s and women’s styles. Sailing gloves protect your hands from rope burn and blisters. These gloves are for warmer weather sailing and are made of synthetic materials that are hard wearing and flexible. They are reinforced in the palms and fingers to protect your hands when handling lines. Choose gloves based on the protection you need: fingerless which cover 3/4’s of all fingers; 3-finger which cover the last three fingers completely and the thumb and first finger ¾’s of the way; or full finger which cover all fingers and the thumb completely.
