I now own a pair of these gloves and love them. I need to know the washing/laundering instructions. Thank you,
Hi, I am new to diving. I live in northern California where the water I dive in is usually around 50 degrees or so. I really enjoy being in the water and seeing all kinds of cool stuff (no sharks yet :) ) but I am running into a problem: my physiology is such that my arms are disproportionate to my body, meaning that my wetsuit fits well on my midsection, but it comes up short at my wrists. My core body temp has been great for dives up to 40 min so far, but when I get out of the water, even after 20 min, my hands refuse to function. I have 5 mil thermocline Kevlar gloves, but they obviously do not work. The space between my wetsuit and my gloves allowes too much water in.I guess the roundabout to this rant is that i am looking for some longer gloves that will cover my wrists that are in the 5 to 7 mil range. I would love to dive longer, but I need to figure out how to keep my hands happy. It really stinks when I get out of the water after a great dive and cant get my gear off.... Thanks, Katie
Not your typical question as I am not a diver.I have severe neuropathy in my hands yet love to swim. Even pool water is too cold and very painful. What would be the warmest gloves?
Hello, this would be a balancing act. The thicker the glove the warmer your hands will be. On the flip side the thicker the glove the less dexterity you have. Below is a link for the glove that I would recommend. You want to stick with a glove with Velcro around the wrists. http://www.scuba.com/scuba-gear-27/019340/Akona-Quantum-Super-Stretch-Diving-Gloves..html
Im looking for a wet-glove that will fit well with my drysuite. Ive had a pair of Forth Element, they were warm but they dont work well with dry-suits. Suggestions.
Over the years I''ve found gloves with a shorter cuff to work better with my dry suit. These gloves have a fairly average length to the cuff and may get in the way of the suit where it over laps the cuff. For more info on alternate products or choices you can contact our instructors at firstname.lastname@example.org
I need some Lion Fish proof dive gloves. Warm is not an issue as I would be using them in the Caribbean. I also need a Lion Fish proof catch bag and a telescoping trident dive stick. Any ideas? Thanks
Hello, check out the Akona 2mm Bug Hunter Diving Gloves. Here is the link below. http://www.scuba.com/scuba-gear-114/019328/Akona-2mm-Bug-Hunter-Diving-Gloves.html This glove is much more impenetrable than Kevlar. I''m not sure which pole or stick your referring to. Is it the snare?
The Aleutian Glove is made of Thermal Flex 4-Way stretch neoprene and is one of the easier gloves to put on or take off. The wrist openings are bell shaped and offer easy entry for your hand and wetsuit cuffs. Pre-bent fingers to match the natural shape of your hand, adding to the comfort of this glove. The thermal flex 4-way stretch neoprene panels provide exceptional comfort and warmth. Pre-curved fingers and ribbed glove-back work together to eliminate hand fatigue. The Bell cut wrist opening allows for trouble free entry and accommodates wetsuit cuffs comfortably. Elastic clusre minimizes water exchange and keeps the cold out.
