Dive Hood, Gloves & Boots Guide

Diving Gloves

Both thermal and abrasion protection are offered by your diving hoods, gloves and boots. The thicker the warmer but you sacrifice dexterity or hearing for warmth so a compromise is best.
1.5mm is fine for the tropics, 3mm where you need a combination of movement and warmth, 5mm for warmth and 7mm for lots of thermal protection whilst diving.

Hey! I’m PADI OW certified. I dived in dutch springs PA for a 60′ fun dive. I needed a 7mm wetsuit 5mm hood and 5mm glove. Jesus was I cold. My head was fine but my hands, Jesus Christ.
