    Best PWC Gloves

    Hi guys, I was searching the web for reviews on riding gloves but couldnít find a lot of info on which would be long lasting, form fitting. Anyone here use them and have tried different brands to compare? Iíve looked at Jettribe, Slippery and itís kinda hard to make a decision on which is best. I know itís trial and error but Maybe you guys or gals can give some input on what you have tried. Is it really necessary to have waterproof gloves or can any bike glove do the job? Obviously leather is a no-no but which materials must we look for in these gloves which will be most of the time soaked in water? Thanks

    I would imagine that you're looking for warmth and extra grip...

    The reason I wear is strictly for extra grip, so I buy generic, lightweight full finger fabric gloves that can be easily rinsed.

    Similar to this:

    For sure I’m looking for that extra grip, I’ll be riding my RXTX 300 and I’ll need it I’m also looking for something that dries good too.

    I would just go to your local watercraft retailer and see what they have on display. It will give you a much better idea of whats out there and how they would suit you.
    Just buying blindly off the interent may work, but you are just looking at a picture.

    Mountain Bike gloves are nearly identical to PWC gloves. I first purchased the Sea-Doo PWC gloves which I liked, but there are hundreds of styles of Mountain Bike gloves which cost much less yet are better made. They're made to take the punishment of mountain bike riding which is considerably more severe than PWC riding including falling on rocks and gravel, being covered with mud, and riding in the rain.

    Just search for mountain bike gloves on Amazon and you'll find many.

    If you just want grip, I prefer half finger gloves. Never cared for the feeling of a whole glove on my hands while riding.

    You really shouldn't need gloves for rec riding but moto gloves will be superior to any watercraft brand in my opinion.

    When I raced ski class I tried them all and like Fly Racing the best. I tried Jet Pilot, Slippery, Quakysense etc.

    Jet Pilot was best for wet suits, jackets, tour coats, etc.

    Lift weights & get that grip & calluses built up & you wont even think about gloves. RR
