Questions and Answers for XCEL 3/2mm Thermo Bamboo Diving Gloves ..:
Hi- I am looking for a warm, but very flexible and light weight glove for diving in 65 deg. water. I have small hands (female) but my fingers are stout :) So- usually, if I get a medium glove, the fingers are wide enough, but they are too long.
So- which gloves should I be looking for and what size?
