Easy peelers

By Scuba Magazine on 27 Jan. 2017

The problem with wetsuit gloves is that to make them as watertight as possible the wrist section has to be considerably smaller than the width of your hand. This makes them difficult to put on and take off. Is there an alternative? Northern Diver believes so with their new Optimum gloves. They are available in three and five millimetre neoprene, with embossed palms and fingers to improve control and grip, and a seemingly unique heat-reflecting lining. But the secret to overcoming the tight fitting wrist seal is that they have a wrist zip to allow expansion when taking them on and off. Do they work? Zips on gloves can be a double-edged sword, so I dived with the gloves during the summer to find out if they lived up to Northern Diver's claims. There is no question they are incredibly easy to don. Removing them is also a piece of cake. There was perhaps a little more flushing through than I would have liked, but in 16°( water it made little difference. My conclusion is that the zip solves the need to struggle into the gloves but perhaps takes a couple of degrees off their thermal effectiveness. For cooler waters, the five-millimetre variant would be a better choice.
