    I'm looking for a recommendation for winter sailing gloves. I've bought 2 pairs already which I don't like. They are not flexible enough, I can't feel the line well through them. I'm sailing inNew England, so need some protection from the cold. Does anyone have a favorite brand they can recommend?
    Thanks.

    This is what I use:
    Xcel Wetsuits Drylock 5mm 3-Finger Lobster Wetsuit Gloves
    At 5mm thick they're not super sensitive or flexible so they may not be what you're after. And at $60 ... whew, not cheap.
    But they are flat-out waterproof, and they make a real good seal at the wrist with the drysuit. So they are bigtime warm - I can sail for hours in 20 kts+ and keep warm + have fun. Keeping hands warm was often the limiting factor in staying out or coming in, + these things have definitely extended that a lot.

    I have to admit, I laughed when I first saw this. However if they keep your hands warm, that's the important part.

    I frostbite in Newport. These are what I use and see out there. One guy runs the lobster mitts.

    I have a set of gill Three Season gloves for the warmer days....above 40 Gill Three Season Gloves

    then a Set of NRS Maverick Gloves for colder weather, damn warm but very slippery. NRS Maverick Kayak Gloves w/ HydroCuff | Outdoorplay.com

    And last choice is Atlas 2 piece work gloves. Warm but Bulky Atlas Warm Gloves w/ Removable Liner

    Also had these...Gill Neoprene Winter Glove warm, very slippery, tough to get on and off.
