I've used several different kinds. Always thought that the Simms gloves were it, but have used several gloves. The Glacier Glove is popular here. One of the guys that I subscribe to his news letter has a discount code on these: Code: BILLS40 for 40% off and included shipping. He won't mind me sharing. I've also used the Grease Monkey fishing gloves. They carry those at Wally World at a great price and they are a nice product.

Instead of which brand, I just likes gloves vs no gloves. I also need those that have UV protection included.

why do you want gloves in the summer?

Sun exposure would be my guess ..After working outside for 30+ years I have some concerns about sun exposure on every exposed area. I would probably just go with fingerless gloves just to protect the backs of my hand.

I use summer rubber gloves to protect the back of my hands from the Blazing Summer Sun, without chemical sunscreens, and to help with fishing hooks and the Slime and Sharp fins/ teeth/ barbs of some species of fish.

I use the heavier thickness rubber gloves similar to those found at Home Depot normally used for refinishing and for chemical protection. Mine are in light reflective colors to stay cool for summer, two sizes larger than what I normally wear so that they fit loosely for no sweat ventilation, when the very finger tips are cut off. They don't retain the fish smell as much as fabric gloves and can be rinsed as needed in the surrounding river water, they dry quickly after repeated dunkings. I don't do any paddling with them, as I use other methods of propulsion. Easy on and off, Price is Right, last quite a while, no washing required. Fingertips can be used to change lures with gloves on.

Dorky, but works for me, definitely not for everyone, haha!

I did facility maintenance and repair for SWBT, SBC and ATT. Basically lineman work, climbed poles ladders and worked in the underground..

These work pretty good for me, good wet & dry grip, finger length easily shortened if needed. Scuba Chris recommended these too in one of his videos, me thinks.

Exactly, the less sun that hits my body when I'm on the water the better.

I should wear gloves in the summer but I've gotten away from that. It just drives me nuts having wet hands half the time I'm on the water and I can't seem to go through a day without getting a hook stuck in a glove at least once. I've bought several pair from Amazon. All have finger tips exposed and I can't tell much of a difference between any of them. If you're paddling in a lot of wind which makes me grip the paddle harder the ones with the padded palms come in handy for that.


You get out of it what you put into it!

I like the Rockfish wrist length fingerless gloves from Academy.

Looking for some, bit late had two biopsies one on each hand last week plus several she froze. Sun protectio is good even when the damage is already done.

I've been wearing the Buff sun gloves forever.. at least 20+ years.. closest thing I've found that feels like not wearing gloves. You won't wear them out from paddling, I promise. Usually you'll lose one and have to buy another pair. The best thing about them is when you've bought the second pair, you'll have three gloves and you can turn one inside out and wear it on whichever hand you've lost the second time around! Guaranteed as thin as they are, the sun wont get through.

Update... in the market for another pair. Just sucked one into the car wash vacuum cleaner.. now I remember it wasn't the first time that has happened.
