Rating: Quality Gloves
Reviewer: Joseph T., - View all my reviews
I have used these gloves for 10-12 years. The first pair I bought lasted me 10 years and they were still in good condition when I lost them. Ive misplaced a few of these gloves and continue to buy the same ones every time. They are very comfortable and extremely durable. The Kevlar-like palm and fingertip material is very durable and perfect for protection from rocks and sharp objects. Despite being only 3.5mm, I wear them in cold water in the upper 40s (F) and lower 50s (F) without getting cold hands.

Questions and Answers for Akona 3.5mm ArmorTex Diving Gloves:
Will these hold up well for lobster hunting in the Florida and Caribbean areas?

Hi Cam, The Akona Armor Tex will work great for that.
I need to know if these are the gloves I need. I am a clam farmer and deal with clams and clam bags which are very abrasive. We get gloves from the local hardware store that might last a week. My concern is the finger tips, will they hold up?
Bob (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com)
They won't even come close to holding up in those conditions. Neoprene is foam rubber and will get chewed up in a hurry.
