Other: I tried mittens... WOW!

Paddled Sunday and as usual my year old pair of NRS gloves left me with almost numb hands from all the cold water leaking in. On the return trip I was miserable they were so cold. Bruce always carries two pair of mitts. After we stop and eat a bite he puts on the the 2nd dry pair. He offered me the ones he had taken off. There was no way they could be any colder so I tried them on. WOW!! What a difference.

Within just a few minutes my hands were warming up. Before we got back my hands were sweating! I had to dunk them in the water to cool down. I expected them to leak since they were NRS but they didn't. I have to say I am amazed at the difference. Still on the fence because I use a camera a lot on the water. I was able to take photos but obviously it was harder to do but I could. Still, I am totally impressed!
