If you've ever tried strip-setting on a 150-pound tarpon with greasy, sunscreen-coated hands, you already know why we made our Sun Gloves. It's the same for hanging onto cork when a big bone streaks for the horizon or the oar handles as you drop into Oak Springs. These simple, fingerless gloves (with cut-out palm for grip and sensitivity) replace liquid sunscreen with lightweight, fast-drying 88% recycled polyester/12% spandex fabric and 30-UPF sun protection. Better yet, they never wash off.

Take a look at an old flats guide's hands and you'll get a pretty good idea of why we made these. Of course, there's always sunscreen, but it tends to make slippery work of casting and line control, and who wants coconut-scented flies, anyway? The solution is a light, comfortable, fingerless glove made from quick-drying, 30-UPF 88% all-recycled polyester/12% spandex fabric. The webbed-finger design and out-of-the-way seam placement make Sun Gloves easy to slip on and off, and the cut-out palm design provides secure rod grip. Your hands will thank you.

The top of your hand is often overlooked when it comes to sunscreen application or, if you're on the water, the first place it wears off; protect it from a nasty sunburn and wear the Patagonia Sun Glove. Stretchy and comfortable, it offers a superior solution to goopy, unreliable sunscreen without sacrificing dexterity.
