Wetsuit gloves are essential to keep your hands warm when in the coldest of waters. Gloves were first used by surfers who wanted to stay in the water for longer to enjoy there sport. The thickness of neoprene depends on how cold the water will get and you can purchase them in 2mm, 3mm or 5mm. Gloves are generally worn in winter months by surfers and kitesurfers but those of us that also sail will use them in summer months. Most gloves use the latest wetsuit technology so they are pretty flexible so as not not restrict your movement. 5mm gloves are used in the coldest of conditions to keep your hands as warm as possible. They are more restrictive but if warmth is your prime concern then it is worth considering them.
