Yachting Monthly - - GROUP TEST -

We in­cluded these win­ter gloves in the test with the sum­mer pairs, as the Neo­prene was thin and they had short thumb and in­dex fin­ger. These were well padded, with foam and Amara palm and fin­gers pro­vid­ing lots of pro­tec­tion. The half in­dex and thumb meant they were able to carry out rel­a­tively in­tri­cate tasks, al­though we found the slightly-too-long in­dex fin­ger got in the way at times. Al­though these gloves were high in pro­tec­tion, they didn’t do so well when it came to grip, com­ing last in our test. We still think these are a solid pair of gloves, made for cruis­ing more than dinghy sail­ing.

The Gul gloves were a fairly sim­ple de­sign but well padded and warm

Neo­prene backs made these gloves good for cold days Amara palms would prob­a­bly grip bet­ter when wet than dry
