Winter winging gloves?
« on: November 25, 2021, 02:11:41 PM »
Having decided to stick around for a longer period this winter I realized Glacier Gloves is no longer a viable option. It used to be the case I could get the model I like around $20 on Amazon but prices more than doubled and 3 pairs per season is an expensive proposition.

Any recommendation for a good winter winging glove that would last more than a season?

It depends on how well your hands stand up to the cold.  I've surfed through eight NH winters often in below-freezing temperatures. I occasionally have Raynaud's syndrome and my hands are always the first thing that gets cold.

In 25 to 45 degrees F, I can usually get away with Xcel 5mm lobster mitts. If needed, I also have some 7mm full mitts.

This will be my first winter wing foiling. Both my Xcel mitts seem to work fine for holding the wing.

I've tried a lot of brands and one thing I've noticed is that most mitts are so tight on my fingers that they restrict the blood flow. Your hands can not get warm if the blood can't flow through them. If possible, try before you buy. If you buy online make sure you can easily return them.
