Loss of movement or manual dexterity, due to cold hands, can be dangerous during a dive, as well as being uncomfortable for the diver. Maintaining hand warmth and a divers ability to efficiently operate their essential diving equipment, is vital to safe diving and maintaining a high level of dive comfort. Northern Diver are proud to manufacture and continue to innovate our revolutionary concept in dry diving glove systems.
This unique system is trusted by technical divers on deep dives, recreational divers in cold water environments, commercial divers in more extreme diving environments and Environment Agency divers all over the world, in an incredibly diverse range of diving conditions and even in contaminated water environments.
Our unique dryglove ring system has been designed for use in conjunction with Neoprene or Membrane drysuits, using Latex or Neoprene wrist seals and therefore, this dry glove kit is supplied ‘complete’ with three sets of ‘compression’ rings, to suit most models of dry diving suit (regardless of drysuit material thickness). Once fitted to a divers suit, the unique Twin-Safe locking ring mechanism, allows quick and easy glove engagement and the equally quick release of the drygloves, without the need for assistance. In addition, this unique system works with the original drysuit wrist seals, therefore the drysuit can actually be used without the dry gloves attached or in conjunction with standard wet gloves, for the ultimate ‘fully adaptable’ drysuit glove system.
These Version 3 outer gloves are cut, tear and puncture resistant Ansell AlphaTec gloves. The gloves are much more flexible than our Version 2 gloves, allowing far great dexterity whilst still offering amazing wear and chemical resistance and thermal insulation. Manufactured from a Lightweight and seamless Nitrile nylon liner and offering superior grip and tactility.
Please Note – Although these gloves are extremely cut, tear and puncture resistant and conform to the EN388 standard, they are not puncture proof. As always, please take the appropriate precautions around sharp underwater objects and structures.
To complete this unique dryglove system, you will also receive a pair of ultra thermal ‘compressed fleece’ inner gloves. These thermal liners provide additional thermal protection on colder dives and are carefully flatlock stitched, to keep your hands comfortable throughout the duration of your dive. These inner gloves are also fully removable, allowing the diver to use the heavy duty outer gloves with or without these inner liners and adjust the level of thermal
