The NRS Women's Axiom is truly the most comfortable glove you can paddle in. Stretchy sun protective back, grippy ventilated palm, in an open finger design. Palm pads provide extra control over the paddle. An added fleece patch on the back of the glove is perfect for wiping sweat from eyes without scratching. Silkweight H2Core fabric in the glove back stretches four ways, breathes readily for cooling and dries quickly. And it gives you UPF 30 sun protection for your hands. Three quarter finger design leaves your fingers free to tie knots, operate your camera and check the wind direction. Vent holes in the Amara synthetic leather palm increase cooling. Sticky polyurethane pads on the palm give excellent grip for paddle control. The synthetic leather material on the fingers extends out slightly to provide a grip tab that's helpful in tugging the glove off. Synthetic leather panel over the thumb web prevents wear in this vulnerable area. A soft strip of fleece on the back of the thumb is perfect for wiping the sweat from your brow without chafing.
