Apparently becoming a grandad
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.
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
Has anyone tried the new Santi Smart Gloves yet?
