I find them good because they are thin enough to leave on if using a camera or radio....there are warmer types out there for sure...

Curious as to why you do not consider pogies.
I use them from October through April, could not paddle in the winter without them, found gloves did not work.

Personally I prefer pogies. I have been kayaking with them the last 6 years and I would say there better than gloves. I tried gloves for a couple of months before I started using pogies and still prefer pogies. With gloves you mightn't be able to find the jesus cord.They last years also. I only got new ones because they were my dads and he wanted them back and I still bought the same ones. Peak UK. They cost 30euros. At least when u let go of the paddle u know they still be attached to the paddle when u get it back. You also don't have to worry about not being able to pull the jesus cord. All u got to worry about is getting back into your boat and getting into those snug pogies.
