Glove Review: Gill Pro Gloves

Drew from Customer Service takes a look at the Gill Pro Gloves

The Gill Pro Gloves are designed for the serious sailor. If you are constantly handling lines these are the gloves for you. Let’s take a look at some of the features.

The gloves themselves are made from a durable material called Proton – Ultra. Gill went to a great deal to design this material to provide long lasting durability. 

This material will provide protection from loaded sheets in breeze, and will be a valuable tool for people who are constantly handling those loaded lines.

The wrist closure has a neoprene cuff with a Velcro strap. It allows for a comfortable feeling on the wrist while having some stretch for ease of movement.  The Velcro has good grip, and will stay shut all day long.

If you are looking for added protection for your hands the finger length is generous to give protection without having the feeling of full fingered gloves.

In conclusion, if you’re looking for a new pair of gloves, the Gill Pro Gloves are a great option. If you are a spinnaker trimmer like me, these gloves will give that added protection for big eases, grip while trimming and long lasting durability. If you tend to burn through your gloves, look for these as a replacement which will provide you a great return on your investment lasting multiple sailing seasons.

  1. Hands down the best sailing glove on the market. I can get two seasons of 505 sailing out of these no problem. As a point of comparison, the Atlas gloves last me one regatta. Great fit and long life.
