CUTTING EDGE SCUBA TECHNOLOGYTM
DRY GLOVE & WRIST RING SYSTEMS
The first thing most new drysuit divers notice about diving dry is the incredible warmth they feel when diving as compared to diving in a wetsuit. The second thing most new drysuit divers notice is "my hands are cold!" This is due to the high surface area to volume ratio of your hands and the fact that adaptive vasoconstriction in less important organs sacrifice warming blood flow to the limbs to maintain core body temperatures.2,6,20 Loss of manual dexterity due to cold hands can be very dangerous as well as uncomfortable. Maintaining warmth and dexterity in your hands is vital in allowing you to operate your SCUBA gear and ensure that your dive will be both safe and enjoyable.
Diving Concepts paves the way with more cutting edge scuba technology by offering an array of dry glove systems, replaceable latex wrist ring systems and our newest dry glove ring system that turns every diver's head.
LATEX WRIST RING SYSTEM
The latex wrist ring system can be combined with our new dry glove system to allow you to have the versatility between diving with and without a dry glove combination as well as allowing you to replace a damaged latex wrist seal within minutes. This arrangement allows you the versatility of wearing latex wrist seals or dry gloves and then removing either of these quickly on the surface. The latex wrist ring system and components are shown in Figures 1 and 2 and can be joined to the suit ring shown in Figure 3.
DRY GLOVE WITH WRIST RING SYSTEM
Our newest design is the dry glove system shown in Figures 3-6 which allows divers to connect and disconnect the dry glove from the drysuit very easily. Our latex wrist ring system and the dry glove system are equipped with a wrist seal protector which protects the seal or dry glove and can be easily peeled away to allow you to connect or disconnect your seals or dry glove to the suit ring. This dry glove system is a must for any drysuit diver.
DRY GLOVE SNAP-ONTM KIT
The Diving Concepts Snap-OnTM Dryglove Kit is a truly innovative dryglove system. These drygloves can easily be connected onto latex or neoprene wrist seals with O-Rings. The following instructions explain how to connect the Snap-OnTM Dryglove Kit onto your drysuit.
The Diving Concepts Snap-OnTM Dryglove kit can be attached to existing latex or neoprene wrist seals.
Which type of seal is on your drysuit?
WRIST SEAL DRY GLOVES
The wrist seal dry glove can be used on any type of drysuit or wetsuit. The dry glove has a latex wrist seal that ensures good sealing onto your hand and the seal can be trimmed to fit. Also, this glove has a build-in-fleece liner that will keep you warm. These gloves are available in sizes 8, 9 and 10 which corresponds to the diameter around the outstretched palm of your hand (e.g. 8", 9" and 10"). Figure 11 shows how the dry glove looks, Figure 12 shows how to don the dry glove and Figure 13 shows a properly donned dry glove.
