Ok, but consider pogies

I've owned two pairs of these and have used them a lot over the years. They are definitely warmer than bare hands, but they also weaken your grip on the paddle. If you coat your paddle shaft with sex wax, it helps a lot. Personally, I now go straight for pogies if the water is too cold for bare hands; they're warmer and they allow for a more secure grip on my paddle.
