Fourth Element Neoprene Scuba Diving Glove

A Review

Fourth Element Neoprene Scuba Diving Glove

Overview

The secret to a great dive can be as simple as having warm hands and the dexterity to be able to use your camera or feel your valves for a shutdown. Fourth Element Neoprene wet gloves use stretch neoprene with glued, stitched and welded seams to give a close fit that almost eliminates the entry of water, whilst maximising flexibility and warmth. The Carbonite print on the outside of glove provides good grip and improved durability.

Both the 3mm gloves and the 5mm Gloves provide amazing warmth during a dive. The 3mm gloves give outstanding dexterity – ideal for photography and videography. Features include: stretch neoprene for fit and comfort, and a Thermoflex lining for warmth, sealed seams minimise water ingress, easy donning minimalist design, and a carbonite finish for grip and durability.

Fourth Element Neoprene

The gloves themselves are incredibly well constructed. All seams are stitched, then glued. The glue fills the seams and is spread out over the stitching, making them pretty much bullet proof and darn-near dry. There’s also a rubbery pattern that, I assume, is silk-screened over the entire outer surface of the glove. This stuff should improve wear also.

Fourth Element dive gloves seem to run just a bit smaller than other gloves. XL fits my hands about perfectly. Usually, I wear a Large, and sometimes even a Medium. I definitely don’t have particularly large hands–if anything just the opposite.

So, even if you don’t think you need new gloves, go out and buy a pair of Fourth Element diving gloves. They’re just better and will eliminate an annoyance you may never have realized you were suffering.

These Fourth Element diving gloves are the perfect all around option. A 5-millimeter thickness gives you the confidence to expand your dives to a colder climate. The neoprene material has been designed to be flexible while the Thermoflex lining ensures your hands stay dry and warm. Instead of the regular stitching, these gloves are stitched, welded and glued ensuring a watertight fit and the smallest seams possible. A carbon style grip increases the durability and life of these gloves while adding exceptional grip.
