I am looking to replace my NRS creeking gloves that I use for kayaking "bony" rivers and creeks where rock contact is a real possibility. The problem that I have with them is that the seams are not done very well or neoprene is simply not conducive to hanging onto many seams so they tear easily.
Unfortunately, this seems to be the only glove on the market that is designed for this purpose. I was thinking of perhaps goretex gloves that offer some degree of padding on the fingers and knuckles and don't really need to be waterproof as long as they resist tearing in wet conditions. Their purpose is not to protect against the cold but against impact, so wetness is OK.
So I was thinking about perhaps dirt bike or mountain biking gloves of some kind. Or perhaps some gloves that commercial fishermen use. Any suggestions that would meet my needs?
