    Other than finding suitable gloves I have had zero problems with my system - but then it's simplicity is it's strength

    Funny that the person diving a rebreather prefers the simplicity and reliability of wet gloves.

    Lots if similarities: dry gloves are more expensive; require special techniques ('straw'); need to consider fallback options when they tear.... However, they're more comfortable, warmer, dry, give more dexterity... and keep your computers/compass/slates on your wrist. If JJ were to make dry gloves, they'd make Kubi.

    The zips all broke. I also found them a pain in the arse to do the zips up yourself

    Another vote for Kubis. I went for factory fitted with latex/silicone seals.

    Just discovered the thicker, textured Kubi/Santi gloves. Bastard to fit on the Kubis, but far more resilience than the standard Marigold G17k gloves.

    And warmer; spent 100 minutes in five degrees water last weekend and noticed my feet were cold.... meaning that the rest of me was warm. The luxury of a heated suit; pure decadence.

    Yup. Did 2 dives last weekend with a pretty big leak due to my poor neck seal placement, but barely noticed, certainly didn't care, even on the protracted run in, which included assisting a yacht and towing it back to the yacht haven.

    Suit fitted with Kubi rings, thick Kubi/Santi textured gloves and 4th element neoprene under-gloves.

    Heated vest courtesy of Santi. Not ever hot, but never cold. Even soaking wet and in the cold wind returning home.

    Another vote for Kubis.

    I previously had Sitech, whilst I enjoyed having warm hands in the winter, I hated the size of the rings.

    The Kubis have been brill

    A few friends have them, they seem to like them. I'm a big kubi fan of old, but thinking of trying the new Smart gloves, nagging doubts though lol x
