For me sun gloves are an essential clothing item when I fish in the tropics or at altitude... the backs of my hands seem always to burn if I don't wear them, since sunscreen washes off. Over the years, I've owned about 6 different pairs... the first were little more than a scrap of a soft rayon-like material. My last, a pair of Simms gloves, had a reinforced palm. These gloves are even more substantial than the Simms, with a double-reinforced palm and all sorts of detailing on the fingers... I'm hoping this will address an ongoing problem I have with saltwater fishing, which is that my left index finger gets blistered from retrieving line over the course of a week of fishing. Other gloves help, but invariably, the fingers on a sun glove are just a little short, and the line slips off to rub against my skin anyway. The finger detailing on these gloves seems explicitly designed to keep this from happening, and if it does, I'll be very pleased.
