It seems like every season means a new pair of gloves. We’ve chopped up gardening gloves, looked like we were about to go to work doing dishes and have wrapped our hands in e-tape looking like a boxer about to hop into the ring in hopes of lessening the pain of the inevitable blisters that occur once you’ve held the sheets for so many hours. Gill, the world leader in sailing gloves has brought a new pair to the market that mean never trying any crazy tricks to save your hands again.
This fall Gill introduced its Pro glove to the market and they are unlike anything else Sailing World has ever seen. Made out of Dura-Grip fabric, these gloves mean you will never lose your grasp, no matter how rainy or slippery things are onboard. In addition to keeping your grip, the Proton-Ultra palm and finger constructions prevents rope burn and has tested high above any other methods out there.
Despite the durability of new fabrics, Gill hasn’t sacrificed any flexibility. The stretch woven fabric allows sailors to keep their dexterity. The difference is in the details, the contoured fit and pre-curved fingers prevent any unnecessary change in shape, the generous thumb and index finger allow a better fit than ever before and maximum protection. The wrist closures also prevent sailors from starting their watches on accident.
