Never like wearing gloves when paddling, I prefer to be able to feel the paddle. I don't suffer from cold hands but I have a set of neoprene pogies for the really cold weather. Have you tried using pogies Rich?

I'm with Sean for paddle feel.

I have Palm Neoprene Gloves like these, which fit perfect but don't really work with Werner paddles which are known for having very smooth shafts. I also found that they froze my hands, I suspect I don't have enough blood flow in cold weather to heat up the water trapped by the glove.

I use Palm Descent Whitewater Pogies. I like them 'cos they only come to the wrist, unlike sea kayak pogies they are easy to put on fast. I also find them too warm unless its below freezing with added wind chill!!

Ultimately, its a personal and subjective choice. You're welcome to try the pogies if you want.
