I am going to be snorkeling in the Caribbean in December (Tortola, St. Maarten, Barbados). This will be my 5th snorkel adventure and every time my hands end up extremely cold. Its really a problem for me because I end up not being able to move my fingers or grasp anything. Can you suggest a good glove? Im wanting gloves that keep my hands warm, that arent bulky, with a nice fit and easy movement. Thank you. Beth

Hi Arthur: Recently you answered a question in regards to a glove that may work for my daughter regarding a burn she sustained in an accident. We think it would work, but unfortunately I am unable to find the link you provided. It was a fingerless paddle board glove. I am hoping you remember. If so, could you please send me it again? My apologies, and thank you very much for your support & assistance, it truly is appreciated. Thank you, Kimberly
Unforunately, my 16 yr old daughter had an accident earlier this year. She feel into a bonfire and burned her right hand. She was originally fitted for a compression glove to help flatten the scars. However, they did not measure her properly and the glove doesnt work. We were told to purchase a tight fighted scuba glove to use. The only issue is we have know idea is to what type of clove would work. We dont want anything extreme or expensive, just something she can wear that is not bulky and will have a tight fit to the top of her hand. Any assistance anyone can give would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
