since I moved to Cali, I don't use them much anymore, so forgive me if I have to search my memory. I think a seam on the heal of one hand was starting to go, and a finger tip had a small chunk missing (still don't know how that happened). But they held up for years (like five) before they started going. I'm sure you're right--it all depends on how hard you are on them. I would baby mine. Normal paddling, no death grip. I didn't like the blue velcro strap, so I took them off. The gloves could take water from the back, but kept my hands warm the way a wet wetsuit would.
