A New Collection of World-Class Gloves from the Marine Experts
Published: Thursday, February 18, 2021
Gill has long been recognized as the industry leader for marine gloves, tailored for different activities and specific uses in and around the water. The new collection is the end result of decades of sailing experience and a continuous program of testing and evaluation. Gill’s pioneering approach has once again delivered the very latest in sailing glove innovation and the latest glove collection will launch with the new season drop.
Deckhand (Short & Long Finger)
These durable multipurpose gloves use fabric technology and design to guarantee quick-dry comfort, close-fit control and protection from the elements. The four-way stretch fabric across the back of the hand provides UV 50+ protection and is water repellent, while double-layer Amara reinforcement won’t absorb or hold water. Offset finger seams remove pressure points and help reduce wear and a wraparound palm protection eliminates uncomfortable side seams and offers complete wear protection. The pre-shaped construction fits your natural hand shape, and the reduced cuff length eliminates bulk and improves comfort. There is an ‘easy-grab’ silicon grip at the cuff and a rear volume adjustment allows for freedom of movement and increased wrist flex.
Championship (Short & Long Finger)
One of Gill’s most popular and versatile gloves, the Championship glove offers the same features and benefits as the Deckhand with the addition of a Dura-Grip fabric on the palm construction, which provides incredible levels of grip without any compromise in flexibility and durability, and the seamless reinforcement improves abrasion resistance and enhances grip even further.
Pro (Short & Long Finger)
Gill’s premium Pro gloves provide race-proven flexibility, protection and comfort, alongside innovations and cutting-edge features. Boasting the same technology and design benefits as the Deckhand and Championship gloves, the Pro glove also uses next-generation Proton-Ultra XD palm and finger fabric to offer an incredible level of durability that’s now softer and more flexible than ever before. The notched finger construction with flex zones also allows for the natural articulation of fingers
Gill’s adaptable neoprene glove with Dura-Grip construction and reinforcement offers a lightweight solution for warmth when wet. Developed to offer touch-screen capability, the no-seam fingertips ensure improved comfort, fit, durability and dexterity, while the extended cuff length makes it easier to tuck underneath neoprene layers or spray tops.
The ultimate high-performance sailing glove for unbeatable protection and control. The Helmsman was developed from Gill’s Pro glove, adding a waterproof and breathable Porelle membrane, a softshell outer fabric with a water repellent finish and incorporating thinsulate to trap warmth. Offering touch-screen capability, the pre-curved fingers provide an active fit, while the elasticated cuff and drawcord closure guarantee best possible fit and protection. The extended gauntlet length is designed to fully integrate with foul weather garments and the rear volume adjustment offers an improved fit.
