C-Skins Session 3mm Wetsuit Gloves are a superb option to wear for numerous water sports and have more than proven themselves ideal for open water swimming. A perfect combination of mesh neoprene outer and double lined neoprene on the palm. The mesh neoprene on the back of the hands absorbs less water as it encourages water run-off to help reduce potential wind chill.
The C-Skins Session Gloves are ideal to wear for those water sports where your hands are likely to be in and out of the water, a lot, so for surfing as you paddle out through the surf, for boarding as you catch the waves, snorkelling as you discover what's beneath and also really lend themselves to open water swimming, in fact numerous sports where flexibility and thermal protection are required.
Glued and blindstitched seams provide a comfortable and durable seam finish ensuring less water ingress. Double lined neoprene, featured on the palm/fingers, by nature is not the most grippy of materials but thanks to the durable textured resin print HYPE3 over the palm and fingers on the Session gloves, high levels of grip are achieved. The mesh neoprene backing helps reduce wind chill to help increase thermal protection. This mesh neoprene outer also ensures that the gloved hand has less drag through the water.
As with any neoprene accessory worn for added thermal protection, these gloves are designed to be worn fairly snug. This ensure the Gloves provide a snug fit/seal around the wrist helping to reduce water ingress while the Xtend 3mm neoprene provides good flexibility.
The C-Skins size guide provides a good indicator to size required, although in most cases (no two people are the same !) if you are a little between sizes you may prefer to opt for the larger size.
C-Skins always produce some of our most popular and best, if not the best, fitting neoprene gloves and feature their lightweight X-Tend Neoprene plam which provides a super flexible and comfortable fit. Flexible and comfortable enough to use them for open water swimming.
