Depending on the location of the dive, we adjust the thickness of our diving gloves. When diving in warm water you will probably opt for 1.5 or 3 mm gloves and in colder waters, for example, 5 mm or dry gloves. Rick tells you all about the different types!
Diving gloves are not only for keeping warm hands, they also serve as protection so you don’t cut your fingers, for example. In the tropics you are usually not allowed to wear diving gloves, so you will not touch the coral. With the right choice of gloves you can basically keep diving all year round.
Gloves differ from each other in shape and properties. Depending on your personal preferences, there is a diving glove that suits you. You have gloves where the fingertips and/or palm are provided with a protective layer, and with some gloves the seams are sealed for full air and water tightness. Some still have a seal on the inside, so they become semi-dry. There are also gloves that are pre-formed for extra comfort during the dive.
The summer gloves made of neoprene are available with a thickness of 1.5 or 3 mm. These gloves are suitable for diving in warm water.
Winter gloves are available in neoprene with a thickness of 5 mm (wet or semi-dry) or 7 mm and as dry gloves (with ring or seal). Often people choose the 5 mm five-finger gloves. The 5 mm gloves are available in wet and semi-dry. With the semi-dry gloves there is a seal inside, which ensures that the water is refreshed less quickly. This keep your hands warmer. If it gets really cold, you can switch to the 7 mm or to the three-finger mittens. With the three-finger mittens you can still give the OK sign under water.
If you want to keep dry hands during the dive, you can opt for dry gloves. These dry gloves are available in different types. So you can opt for dry gloves with a seal, which you don’t need to mount on your diving suit. There are also dry-gloves that are attached to your drysuit by means of a ring system.

The buddy line is a cord with which two divers attach themselves to each other.
