Does anybody make paddling Glomitts? Best of both worlds.

: 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!
