You’ll have a hard time handling the lines if you can’t feel your fingers. As every sailor knows, a good pair of gloves is essential to cold-weather cruising. Enter the Cobra Winter Gloves from Henri Lloyd. The gloves feature Lloyd’s MAXGRIP palm material to ensure a good grip on whatever is in your hand—the mainsheet, the tiller, heck, even your Hot Toddy—and their ease-of-movement design won’t make you feel like you’re sailing with mittens on. Neoprene insulation helps to keep all your digits nice and warm, and double neoprene cuffs are ready to form a seal with your waterproof top, jacket or wetsuit to prevent the “shoot, now I’ve got water up my sleeve” situation. (Because that is the worst.) $34. Henri Lloyd, henrilloyd.com
