Showa 451 Grip Gloves

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. These gloves are great for crewing on boats with large spinnakers and mainsails that usually tear traditional gloves apart within few races.

Key features we love:

  • Extremely resistant to abrasion
  • Protects your hands in damp environments or against aggressive detergents or alcohol
  • Breathable back of the hand to reduce perspiration
  • The surface provides a tactile feel and excellent grip
  • Designed for easy movement and continuous wear
  • Seamless for optimum comfort
  • Colour helps extend wearable life
