Lomo Kayak Gloves

Lomo Kayak Gloves

At £10, Lomo’s Kayak Gloves are an absolute bargain. Made from thin neoprene the Lomo Kayak Gloves also feature Amara reinforced palms and ‘hotspots’ (places where the hand traditionally rubs on the paddle shaft. Real thought has been put into the design and the extra reinforcement is well placed.

The wrists are long enough to cover the wrist seals on cags/drysuits and have a wide neoprene/velcro fastening which is easy to use when wearing the gloves. This provides a good seal around the wrists. It’s also a useful way of securing the gloves to a deck line when you want then handy.

I have been using the gloves for the last 12 months or so and they have stood up to a great deal of abuse yet look like new. Although they can feel a little cold when you put them on wet they warm up very quickly and stay very warm. The thinner than standard (less than 3mm) neoprene means they remain dextrous enough to retain good control on the paddle and for opening deck hatches, putting on spraydecks etc.

These gloves are a bargain at £10 and when they do eventually wear out I would not hesitate to grab another pair.
