Boaters Gloves

rated 1 of 5 stars A boaters glove that dries very slowly and falls apart when wet. As an occasional kayaker I would hope a boaters glove would hold up for more than one season.

Extreme SAR Drysuit

rated 5 of 5 stars I have been teaching swift water rescue and swift water boat operations since 1985. I have used this suit now for the last 7 years and it is always dry. Very rugged and dependable.

DryLander Rawhide Sprayskirt

rated 4.5 of 5 stars An extremely durable, mid-line spray-skirt. Rubberized deck sheds water exceptionally well with an extremely dry and tight fit around the cockpit. Full review

Boaters Gloves

rated 3.5 of 5 stars Great blister and sun protection, but the palms "pill" quickly. I like these fingerless gloves a lot, but I'm not sure I will buy another pair when these wear out. They do keep my hands from getting blistered, and the fingerless design allows for good digital dexterity. However, I don't like that the material on the palms is white—after one use they looked pretty grubby, and the suede was "pilling" (like a sweater).  On hot days, it is nice to wear these because you can dip your hands in the… Full review
