  survey says: personal preference

I think the thread indicates that there's no clear consensus, other than try and find out which you prefer and why. However, I do like the idea of always having a good set of gloves as a backup regardless in case your hands get really cold or you end up in the water for any legnth of time.

Personally, I like the hand-on-paddleshaft contact you get from poggies, so I use them for sea kayaking applications where I'm mostly above-water and going forward. However, I prefer gloves for WW, particularly playboating, where I know I'm likely to spend some time upside down.
