old man hands need gc gloves
i need a bit of sage advice from the experienced.
getting a bit older these days (hate to admit it) and the hands just get cold quickly. we have a 23 day grand trip coming up in march and i need to come up with some new gloves to row with.
in nasty weather, for the last 25 years, i've been using regular old leather gloves that costco sells. they get wet but still have kept my hands more or less warm and have always given me a good grip on my old wooden oar handles. i've tried some of my friends "rowing or paddling" gloves but most seem to have poor grip on the oars (open oar locks) or once they get wet they make my hands even colder from the evaporation factor.
the last 8 years i've been using cataract oars (rubber handles) and that's what i'll be taking on this trip.
any one have any recent experience with some of the newer gloves on the market or maybe a combo of glove and liner that has worked well for them.
i need something with a good grip and warm when wet.
as far as $$$ go you know how that is. when your at the bottom of the ditch and you need it bad you wish you would have spent the couple extra bucks to get the good stuff.
