Adventure charter skippers Bruce Jacobs and Rachael Sprot of Rubicon3 tested the Gill Extreme gloves, which feature 1.5mm neoprene with good grip and insulation, for a season in a variety of tough conditions.
These gloves have loads of neoprene to keep your hands warm even when they get soaked. A long cuff keeps your wrist really warm and the PU grip on the palm worked well. The trade off for all that warmth is that they are a bit slow to get on and off and quite bulky once on. Gill says there are plans to update the Extreme glove design this season.
Features: 1.5mm neoprene with durable grip and insulation.

A little impractical for our expeditions.
