Hard wearing ...Long wristed! ...Flock lined and 100% Water proof models DO exist and I'll be putting a few to the test in the near future

Speaking as someone who uses this type of kit at work, flock lined means very little. It's just enough to stop your hands sticking to the nitrile with sweat. You can get them a lot cheaper than that as well, but any commercial use nitrile glove doesn't last very long.Usually after a few days use they start to crack around the fork of the fingers.
You need to put something under them if you want to stay warm. I'd suggest heated liners.

Or... pay 7 quid a pair for heated waterproof 12v gloves from China and see if they work. Worst that's going to happen is you get wet and twitch a bit

If you look properly through the sites above and others they have plenty of other options than Nitrile Nos...Neoprene...Specialist Chemical resistant Plastics ect...AND designed for SUB ZERO use.
You may well find something better than you're used to

Unless it's neoprene I doubt it, the kit you're talking about is all treated as disposable.

I ordered the DexShell Thermfit Neo Waterproof gloves a couple of weeks ago and now I“ve tried them.

They are very close to Sealskin. Probably rebranded as bike gloves.

On the bright side the gloves are windproof. However they do not breath when wet. I guess these gloves are ok, but fare from top end winterglovs suitable for winter boating.

Cheers

I was stuck for gloves one day heading out on the water and reluctantly invested in a pair of sealskins last year and they turned out to be a great buy!

Expensive but hard wearing, warm and keep the water out.
