Trisha

I measured my hands, made sure I bought the recommended size, but within a 1/4 mile of paddling, the fingers loosened up and slid right off my finger tips. These absolutely do not work for someone with slender fingers. Sad, was VERY excited these would be perfect.

Hi Trisha,

Thank you so much for taking the time to give us your feedback. We're so sorry to hear that despite your measurements the Paddlers didn't fit you properly. We try our best to work with our customers to get the best fit possible, because try as we may, our sizing chart isn't 100% accurate as hand proportions vary. We'd be happy to help you exchange sizes at no cost to you, or to exchange types of gloves if the Scullers may fit you better. In general, Scullers are a better fit for those who have slender fingers.

Please visit our contact page on our website to get in touch with us for futher information about exchanges.

Kind regards,

Paige

Great !

I used scullers for years but I changed for paddlers for my new gloves which cover all the fingers and prevent me from very uncomfortable blisters after several hours of rowing. Good quality, very resistant and a very good feel of the oars despite everything. I recommend for sensitive skin.

Pretty good solution to slipping and sweating on row erg handles

Pretty much love these gloves. I do long rows on a concept2 row erg and they dramatically cut down on blisters. Hands don't slide around on the handles which is very helpful. The blue plastic grips begin to detach pretty quickly unfortunately and I am finding that the fingers are stretching out more quickly on this pair than my previous ones. They are also a bit pricey for my budget.

I got it right the first time...

At 70 I’m a novice sculler and had therefore no prior knowledge of the subject when I set out in search of the absolute best rowing gloves on the planet. It didn’t take me long to discover however that everyone who really knew something about it was pointing toward an amazing little company known as The Crew Stop, so I decided to give them a whirl. I don’t always “get it right the first time” when trying a new product, but 15 minutes into my first “outing” with my Paddlers I had become a lifelong fan of these exquisitely engineered gloves which are made of obviously top notch and extremely durable materials, provide a comfortable and reassuringly secure grip, and offer a made-just-for-me fit. I also learned that their customer service is no less exemplary than their outstanding products. You’re reading this because you’ve also discovered The Crew Stop… and you also got it right!

Super fast international shipping

Shipping to Europe was very fast. And the quality is first class. Even though I train every day, the gloves are not worn out. The extra long fingers are a clear advantage over cycling gloves I have previously used. I don't get any blisters anymore.

Flimsy and too small

Overall too small, even though it’s the largest size available- xxl. Also rather flimsy. The gloves lack proper padding in the palms to prevent blisters. I have to wear another pair of regular gym gloves over them. Extremely expensive for what they are. Poor quality

Perfect

Delivery was fast and as ordered. The material is of high quality. I recommend it.

Perfect

The design of these is so well-thought-out. Lightweight, perfect amount of coverage and they stay where they need to without inhibiting movement. Just sticky enough, and very strong Velcro closure (they are NOT going to come off mid-workout). I’ve been able to get more meters without blisters and pain holding me back. Honestly, they’re perfect. Please never stop selling these.

Builds callouses without blisters

I live aboard my ocean rowboat and row 8-12 hours every day. I row exclusively with these gloves unless it is too cold and need something warm on my hands. These gloves do a great job of building up callouses without making blisters too extreme I can't row. Once my callouses are built up, I row barehanded about half the time, and wear these gloves when the rowing is rough and I need to pull harder. I have tried the gloves without cover on the pinkie finger and find I like the paddlers better. My hands are very small and I usually have a problem with gloves being too large but I have no problem getting a small enough size from Crew Stop.
Eventually the fingers fall off one by one due to extreme use. It takes me about 3 months to wear through one pair, so I buy several new pairs a year but it's worth it. My opinion these are the best rowing gloves, sponsor me I really like you Crew Stop!
