Showa Sailing Gloves

Excellent general purpose gloves suitable for sailing that most people don't even know exist.

Showa Gloves were originally designed to be used in the building industry but as the company grew they begin making gloves for many different industries.

We stock gloves that are are designed for grip, warmth and even some that are waterproof.

Why Use Showa Gloves For Sailing?

The range from Showa are among the most popular gloves we stock. They have great flexibility and durability whilst having options such as thermal lining for extra warmth on a colder day on the water.

If you look closely at photos of professional sailors in the British Sailing Team you'll notice that many of them in high performance classes such as the 49er and Nacra 17 wear Showa gloves. This is because of 3 key reasons:

Price - These glove are a very competitive price compared to may other sailing gloves that won't last as long. The 451 Gloves are £5.99 a pair (at the time of this article) where as other gloves from Gill and Zhik are between £40 and £50.

Durability - Don't think that they have cut corners with durability due to the lower price. These gloves will outlast almost all other sailing gloves. Whether you are sailing a Topper or trimming the kite on an 18 foot skiff these will hold up well to anything. Andrew our founder swears by these gloves and uses them when he is crewing on his Tornado catamaran.

Grip - Whilst being durable they are extremely abrasion resistant. The seamless latex coating is bonded to the glove so no need to worry about them wearing away and sticking to each other.

Explore the range of gloves from Showa today and give them a try.
