GILL CHAM­PI­ONSHIP GLOVES – LONG FIN­GER

Yachting Monthly - - GROUP TEST -

As women’s and men’s hands vary widely, many brands now pro­duce two ver­sions of the same glove. We tested the women’s ver­sion of the Cham­pi­onship style with a half thumb and fore­fin­ger. Pro­tec­tion was ex­cel­lent and the neo­prene cuff made for a snug fit. These are light­weight sail­ing gloves de­signed with rac­ing in mind. The stretch fab­ric back gives them a good range of move­ment and com­fort, with nice at­ten­tion to de­tail. The non-slip rub­ber didn’t quite live up to our ex­pec­ta­tions though, com­ing sev­enth in the grip test.

While the dipped rub­ber was a bit cum­ber­some, the fin­ger and thumb could be cut shorter

Thought­ful de­sign makes these a very com­fort­able pair of gloves

The palms had re­in­force­ment in the right places
