..I have always read that your better off with gloves.....if u lose the paddle with pogies attached ...you have nothing to keep the hands warm !! Cold, frigid finger's don't grip well. I also 2nd the opinion that w/ gloves U can change your hand position on the paddle shaft, to suit the need. For instance .. a very wide paddle sweep by gripping the very end of the blade, to turn.
