Pros:
- silicone grips on the palm are great
- cool and quick drying
- excellent sun protection
Cons:
- no way to remove tags (which bite into your wrist) without damaging the gloves
Depends:
- I'd prefer the fingers to be a little longer. These only cover your knuckle, not the next knuckle on your finger like other gloves
Question:
- write up says UPF 30, list of features says UPF 50. Which is it?
I would recommend this product.

I've been wearing Columbia long sleeve shirts, and while they are perfect for protecting the arms/torso, my hands still soak up the sun all day on the boat. Got these gloves so my hands don't age 20 years in a day, and so far I love them. They are light, do not restrict movement, keeps hands cool, and they have little rubber grips on the palm side to keep things secure.
I don't consider my hands to be xtra large, but the L/XL size fits fine.
I would recommend this product.

These gloves are like a second skin, cool, form-fitting but not tight. I use them for kayaking, paddle-boarding, and riding horseback.

ONLY OUTDOOR ACTIVITY: I am an avid golfer (2-7x week, depending on time of year). Golf gloves make my hand stink (if i keep'em on the whole round). I bought these to golf with. I keep'em on pretty much the whole round and have no problem, no more stinky hands, and have good grip, and hardly notice i'm wearing anything. I was looking for UPF as last year was diagnosed with a melanoma, and have several other moles removed since. It's only June, in the Pacific NW, (not that many real hot days yet) so I'm not real sure on the cooling factor part of these gloves yet. My only gripe would be that they are a bit big as they only come s/m or l/xl, in unisex sizes, maybe if they were split into smaller for women and bigger for men, they might be a better fit ... or maybe add kids' sizes, that might fit better.
I would recommend this product.

I purchased the Coolhead Gloves and love them! So much so that I bought more for gifts. My only issue is they run big. I got them in the smallest size and actually have larger hand's but they were still roomy. Would rather they were a bit tighter. They work very well and I will get more. I hope you will continue to make them!
I would recommend this product.

Gloves do keep the hands cool when using trekking poles, sweat evaporates keeping hands dry, as well as protecting the hands from sun at high elevations.

I had been using the older style of glove and needed new ones so I got this new style. The material is lighter so it breathes better and still gives great sun protection. These dry faster than the older material. The fingers are shorter than other brands which is a major advantage for the way I fish (vertical jig with my finger holding the line). The fingers go up to the first knuckle whereas other brands go up to the second knuckle - I prefer shorter.
I primarily fish crappie, and their fins shredded my old ones with the heavier material, so it remains to be seen how this lighter material will stand up.
I'm an average 6' 180lb guy and the L/XL fit great. For big guys with big hands, they might be tight.
I would recommend this product.

Wear these gloves when I am driving (one pair for the car) and one when I am hiking (one pair with my hiking gear). Great quality and very comfortable. When I reorder I will buy one size smaller to compare the fit. Wish the sizes came in S, M, L, XL and not SM and L XL.
I would recommend this product.

Bought these on a whim, hoping to find some real practical use for them bass fishing. Found them to be extremely light and comfortable, but more importantly, they were extremely dexterous during wet weather. The grip and hold on my rod and reel in the rain was better than expected, not to mention protective of my thumbs when handling fish...
Great impulsive purchase! Highly recommended...
I would recommend this product.

These gloves are well made, two of the seams did not come together correctly in one thumb and one finger but I do not believe this will be a problem. I am a Bass fisherman and my hands are always exposed to the sun. These will keep the amount of burning I experience to a minimum.
I would recommend this product.

The Coolhead Fingerless Gloves fit nice, keep the sun off my hands, cut down on cuts from handling fish, allow me to tie knots without any hassles and clean up with just a quick soapy washing.

The Coolhead gloves are very comfortable...also cool...even in very hot fishing conditions. They are easy to rinse out if you catch a lot of fish and they get fishy. Great protection for the hands yet does not hinder hand functions.

Great for taking the chill off in a non-bulky package. These are thin, lightweight, and dry fast. Provides for a bit of added warmth while allowing for full dexterity of the fingers. I used them for running, biking, and driving. The grip dots on the underside took a minute to get used to, however. Probably won't hold up if snagged by something sharp, but stretch really well.
I would recommend this product.

These gloves were just as described. True to size. Wish the sizes could be divided a bit more. I bought the L/XL and was concerned they might not fit well. They are slightly small on my hands but work fine in spite of that.

I purchased an Omni-Freeze kit that included these very expensive gloves. I noticed right from the get go that the technology was different than the other products. I don't feel the same cooling effect that the other products provide either. I wear these daily hoping there is going to be some magic but I've been disappointed. They do provide sun protection though.
I do not recommend this product.

I have this and the older model of these demigloves. The addition of the grip dots is a good upgrade. Grip at times with the first model could be a problem with big fish and long fights. I primarily wear them for sun protection.
