Hey Mountain Buzz,
A friend from college has developed some great cold water paddling gloves designed by NE surfers that look like awesome spring paddling gloves. Here is a testimonial from a Maine WW Paddling Guide:
"That was the warmest and driest my hands have ever been boating, no joke. My only worry is how the material will hold up in the long run but they were showing no signs of wear after a long day of boating yesterday. I was incredibly impressed with how dry the stayed, even with my shitty drysuit and water pooling in my elbows nothing made it into the gloves."
Here is the Kickstarter Link:
