I used cressi 2.5 mm gloves with argos 2mm socks over the weekend in the monterey area. My feet were a little cold but my hands were fine.

...that's the same set up I use.

Adam, between the matching suit, gloves, and socks, you're starting to freak me out, lol


Ha, thats funny pete. We need to get out and dive soon. I may head back down that way this coming weekend if the weather is good.

Definitely need to get a dive in.

I leave for Baja tomorrow but will be back on the 22nd. After that it's wide open for diving and I'm also game to come up your way to dive as well.

Sounds good Pete.

Pete, Adam, these? Any comments on longevity? My gloves only have the pinkies left, and I won't be able to win BABL with icicles for fingers. :) My only options between now and is to get something from Amazon, and these popped up.

Those are the ones.  I think mine are 2.5mm

We dive together a fair amount, so you know I don't treat my gloves/gear well.  They are still holding up fine.  Bought them in November of last year.

Ya those are the ones. I just started to put a few holes in the fingers after probably 25 dives. Maybe more I don't know.

They're on their way! I'm going to have to get used to not seeing my hands now that I've switched to camo.....
