I wear them for surfing in the summer when it's too warm for winter neoprene gloves. I considered trying a full nylon glove but my hands would no doubt slip off the deck of the board in a a regular cloth glove. When you surf for hours in the sun, sunscreen is not enough protection so I was very happy to find these gloves so I can keep my hands from getting sun damaged in the water.
I absolutely love them!!! I have been wearing them everyday playing pickleball, tennis and on hikes. I will be buying more!
