GILL CHAMPIONSHIP GLOVES – LONG FINGER
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
