There are hundreds of pairs of sailing gloves available on the market today and we appreciate that picking the right pair for your type of sailing can be a tough choice. Gloves are so important to your sailing, get the wrong pair and you'll ruin your day, get the right pair and you'll be out there for hours in the harshest of winter conditions having the time of your life.
In this article we give you some insight into the sailing gloves we have available here at Sailing Chandlery and explain the key features that might be right for you and your type of sailing.
The Superwarm gloves are Zhik's premium winter sailing gloves. Made from 3mm super stretch neoprene with a soft fleece inner liner to keep your hands warm and toasty. The water repellent outer and the glued and blind stitched seams allow your hands to stay warmer for longer as the water is kept out of the gloves.
These gloves are great for use for all kinds of water sports.
If you plan on using these gloves for sailing Zhik recommend that you put Zhik grip gloves over the top so you have the best warmth, grip and protection.
Key features of the superwarm gloves include:
The Zhik G2 glove is the most technical sailing glove they have made so far. The clever seams allow you to be comfortable whilst wearing these for long periods. The Kevlar stitching is durable and lasts the test of time. Extra padding allows these gloves to be used all year round and still keep your hands warm.
These gloves are packed full of features:
Originally designed for construction these Showa 451 gloves are great for the colder months. The thermal lining and latex grip are extremely resistant to abrasion and will outlast any expensive sailing glove. The seamless design allows comfort and lowers the risk of any stitching coming loose.
Key features we love:
As the name suggests the 3 season gloves can be worn all year round.
These gloves are constructed from lightweight neoprene and dura-grip on the palms, this provides you with exceptional grip whilst protecting your hands from the elements.
These gloves feature no seams on the fingertips and the pre-shaped construction to fit your hand. Wrap around palm protection offers flexibility and durability whilst remaining dexterity.
These Gill sailing gloves are great all-rounders with long cuffs you can tuck under your outer layers whilst doing any water sport.
Key features that make the 3 season gloves great:
The Zhik tactical gloves are gloves for all types of sailing. They can be worn over other gloves to give extra grip or worn alone for high sensitivity and flexibility. The seamless nylon liner and dipped outer make these gloves great value for money as the gloves come in a pack of 3 pairs.
Key Glove Features:
The Zhik G1 has been designed for all sailors. Compared to the G2 gloves they are at a much more competitive price point but are more lightweight without taking too much away from the gloves.
Although they come in at a lower price they do this without taking away the great features:
The Showa gloves may not have been designed with sailing in mind but the advanced grip latex works in the wet and dry whilst being flexible and seamless.
Key Features of the 341 Gloves we love:
Gills Pro gloves are the best in Gill's glove range. The Proton-Ultra XD Palm allows the gloves to be durable whilst being soft and flexible. The gloves also feature Gill's tried and tested Dura-Grip fabric that doesn't compromise the durability of the gloves.

Great quality clew strap and handy that it comes in different colours
Lost the vane from my Windhawk so delighted to be able to just buy this replacement
They are easy to use, keep the knot tight and neatly out of the way. A simple and effective product. Quick delivery.
Prompt and efficient service .Thanks
We have had a number of these from Sailing Chandlery and are very impressed. The tyres are hard wearing and they are great quality wheels for our fleet of club boats.
Arrived well packaged and fits the boat well.
Looks like it's made to last, and with its guarantee it should last well!
Has smartened the boat up in the boat park
Needed to replace broken mast quickly. Sailing Chandlery were the only suppliers i could find who actual stock Laser parts and were able to deliver immediately.
Very helpful and and friendly staff
Will become Chandlery of choice
Excellent speedy service
Beginner splicer here, this worked fantastic on a variety of rope diameters down to about 4mm and up to 12mm in my experience.
Easy to install, good size to allow a good drip but plenty of finger space for sheet work.
Super light, instant improvement on alliminium version due to lower profile under traveller and easy to fit on rudder block.
The goods I ordered were in stock and delivered by courier within 48 hours of ordering
The positive and honest approach of the staff has been very useful. I have not found myself forced to buy anything. Thanks.
I was asked to run a leather project with a scout group. I just needed some thin paracord, but colourful. Turned to Sailing Chandlery. As I knew from their website they did loads of colours. Bish,Bosh,Bang. There we go, nice bright colours, just right for a bunch of scouts.
Perfect delivery from SC. Great Comms. No complaints, just huge compliments. Definitely, definitely will be a returning customer, and definitely be recommending them.
Quick turnaround of this order was appreciated.
