Product Description

Don’t you wish you could leave the water, with warm, dry hands? 
After all, warm hands are safe hands; useful hands. 

The 'Sleeve-sealing, XEROTECH dry glove is available in all sizes of Blue and Yellow versions ! 

Sleeve-seal gloves are designed to cater to diving very cold water conditions at extended durations.
That is, beyond three hours, at temperatures lower than 4 degrees Celsius.

During carefully monitored diving, sleeve sealing gloves may dispense with needing wrist seals on your suit: thus perfectly compensating ambient pressure changes with the air pressure in the suit, for comfort and insulation. Another advantage is in reduced, venous blood restriction;
caused by the skin-contact of elastic seals of suit and gloves

There are significant safety risks, in doing this and we generally commend this method - and indeed, sleeve sealing designs
- only to professional divers, working in Arctic and Antarctic waters.
Hazards resulting from using Ring-sealing systems for 'dry-glove' diving, include dislodged, or trapped rings
(bear in mind that the rings will make your wrists four inches or more, in diameter and you will not always be able to get your hands to where you want them!),
loss of lower-arm dexterity and hand entrapment in equipment and cavities. 

So: unless you have good reason otherwise, based on competent Risk Assessment: ALWAYS use wrist-seal gloves 

XEROTECH® Gloves have protected divers and sailors from the elements, in and under water, for more than twenty years. Their patent design protects against the effects of ‘squeeze’ when diving, so that you stay dry and comfortable – even in sub-freezing water temperatures. 

NATO’s Arctic task force uses XEROTECH® Gloves; for diving, swimming and snow exercises; reporting satisfactory results even in wind chill down to minus eighty degrees. Our gloves are used by the R.N., Police Divers, the Environment Agency, by the Borders Agency and by almost all of the tall ships sailing crews, around the World. They have been designed by professionals for use by professionals. 

Offering cut, puncture, chemical and abrasion resistance to EU standards, our gloves are tactile, too. You can use your underwater slate, handle the boat’s navigation kit and radio easily, all with your gloved hand. 

You’ll need to check whether this size fits you, so: measure your extended hand span, in inches. If the distance between the tip of your thumb and the tip of your fifth finger measures more than 81/2 inches but less than 9 1/2 inches, this size is yours..

  1. Sleeves seals seal the deal

    Posted by Tim Burroughs on 1st Aug 2012

    For most of my diving, I use the wrist seal versions but, when it's cold, deep and long, the sleeve seal offers better wrist protection from the cold and better air migration from suit to glove.
    I first tried them in the Great Lakes, in Canada back in 1998 and have had three pairs since. Great product, great value
