Yachting Monthly - - GROUP TEST -

De­signed for high-per­for­mance yacht and dinghy sail­ing, we found these neo­prene gloves to be ex­tremely flex­i­ble, with the off­set re­in­forced pan­elling around the palm and fin­gers also pro­vid­ing com­fort. This earned them sec­ond place in our dex­ter­ity test. The padded and re­in­forced palm and fin­gers pro­vided ex­cel­lent pro­tec­tion for rope han­dling, al­though we would have liked to have seen ad­di­tional re­in­force­ment on the thumb. The neo­prene cuff fit­ted well and came quite high up the wrist, giv­ing plenty of pro­tec­tion. These gloves dis­ap­pointed slightly in the grip test (ninth), es­pe­cially con­sid­er­ing the price, but over­all a good de­sign.

Flex­i­ble gloves with a con­toured fit gave the Zhik gloves good dex­ter­ity

The re­in­forced neo­prene back made these feel like gloves that would last Shorter cuffs as­sist with a good range of move­ment
