i work on a commercial ore ship on great lakes last winter in january my hands froze because we have to hose down the whole deck (1000 ft) with cold and hot water i thought about heavy duty commercial rubber gloves with 300 fleese liners that might work IF i can get the liners in the rubber gloves, which makes me think about these 7mm gloves you have but they have to have heavy duty palms because of moving the hoses around do you guys these gloves will keep my hands warm and hold up
Hello Steven, yes these gloves are designed to keep you hands warm in cold water. But since you are wearing them all day long and not just for what a dive time would be. The glove system that I would suggest for you is the: http://www.scuba.com/scuba-gear-27/121121/ScubaPro-Easydon-Dry-Diving-Gloves.html. These will hold up with wear and tear.
I just had 5 stitches removed on a knuckle and its not fully healed. Going to Hawaii and need a completely waterproof glove. What do you recommend?
Hello Virginia, the only glove that will keep your hand totally dry would be the: http://www.scuba.com/scuba-gear-27/121121/ScubaPro-Easydon-Dry-Diving-Gloves.html. The glove you are looking at is designed to trap a thin layer of water between your hand and the inside of the glove. Then over time your hand will warm that water up and the inside of the glove will reflect that heat back to your hand to keep it warm.
These easy-flexing gloves deliver both abrasion and thermal protection without sacrificing dexterity. Glued and sewn seams insure water integrity. Divers will especially appreciate the hi-grip textured palm that helps provide secure handling of lights, slates and other small items.
