  That's what I wonder too...

These do not look like they are water proof, so not sure how well the mesh top protects from cold water... They are called "Ice Ninja" though, so not sure what other model there is...

Regardless, I ordered a couple of pairs today to check them out. If they don't work for kayaking, I'll use them for garden work and auto repairs - this is the kind of gloves I use for these purposes anyway, so at about $4 a pair it's won't be a loss...

I have been using Glacier Gloves for the past 3-4 winder seasons (including freezing temps, water and air) and they are great. Except, they tend to fall apart after just a handful of outings for me at the thumb base. Granted, I use them hard on white water and I think the issue is that my fingers are too long, thus forcing the glove to stretch too much in that area and wear off prematurely. Some aquaseal helps temporarily, and I'm experimenting with other ways to patch them-up before they start to wear out but have not found a good way to protect them. I guess I need to switch brands to something more durable, but these are excellent otherwise for paddling...
