Depending on the location of the dive, we adjust the thickness of our diving gloves. When diving in warm water or in the tropics, you will probably choose 1.5 or 3-millimetre gloves and in colder waters for example 5 millimetres, 7 millimetres or dry gloves.
Diving gloves are not only for keeping your hands warm, they also serve as a shield so that you don’t cut your fingers, for example. In the tropics, you are usually not allowed to wear diving gloves, so that you don’t touch the coral. If you do wear gloves, it is best to use thin material such as neoprene. You hardly feel them, which makes it very easy to use your camera under water.
