Amazing gloves!

I am new to sea swimming, and so was unsure what kit to buy. I saw the reviews for these gloves and “took the plunge” and bought them. I live in the Shetland Isles, and so we swim in the North Sea and the North Atlantic Ocean, so the water is kinda nippy! These gloves are amazing in the cold water - 4 -7 degrees Celsius. I bought the small. I’m a nurse and wear medium gloves, but the reviews said it was worth buying the size smaller. They’re so tight and snug. And they keep my hands dry and warm. I’ve recommended these to my friends - some of them couldn’t buy as they were out of stock. They’re amazing. They are tried and tested in the 4 degrees Celsius North Atlantic freezing water!

Ok for the money but returned them

Felt rough inside the glove. Look good on the outside but cheap finishing inside. Returned them. Will spend an extra tenner or so and get some Rip Curls or something.


Love these gloves! I've just started open water swimming. First gloves let water in straight away causing freezing hands (they weren't from decathlon). These are brilliant! Ingress of water is slow so your body warms the water and you stay warm! Size wise, I wear a medium in medical gloves or a 7.5. Got small and they are perfect. But hubby can wear them at a pinch and he wears large in medical gloves or size 9. So they have some stretch.

Great gloves

Really good for cold water swimming

Maybe a touch larger than expected

Top quality gloves, old ones I had leaked through the stitching and forced me out of the water with numb fingertips. I lasted 20 mins in the sea with an outside temperature of 3 degrees the other day, fab!

Great warm gloves

I used these for swimming - probably around 5 or 6 degrees C although didn't measure the temp. My previous gloves were not warm enough but these were great - I actually thought they were just keeping my hands dry for a while before I realised they were just cosy. For the first time it was cold feet that made me leave the water rather than cold hands. My hands are quite small so other gloves I have ordered have been too big. Although not quite as snug as I would have hoped, these gloves did a really good job. Would have given 5 stars if they were just a wee bit more snug.

pretty good gloves for cold swimming

these gloves are so much better than another pair I bought for a similar price. these keep most of the water out and feel comfortable while swimming

Work for swimming too

I bought these for open water swimming and they are really good. Warm and comfortable, didn't slip, and didn't fill up with water.

Warm gloves

They did keeps hands warm in the Atlantic coast off of Cornwall in August. Very pleased with them

Stay warm for longer with our thermal accessories! each temperature range has its own outfit...

When we are in the water, we lose more than half of our body heat through our extremities (feet, hands, head). Consequently, here are the recommended accessories: - in warm water and temperate water (>63°F) => neoprene low booties. - in cold water (54 - 63°F): High booties (boots) and gloves. - in very cold water (45 - 54°F): High booties (boots), gloves, hood, and hooded top...

Choose the right size

Surfing gloves should be a very tight fit to ensure the best possible thermal efficiency. It is perfectly normal for it to feel like they are too tight when tried on dry. Choosing well-fitting gloves prevents them from swelling with water in use.


3 mm surf gloves are made from 100% neoprene for guaranteed improved comfort during use. The neoprene is lined with synthetic fabric for added resistance to wear. Neoprene thickness: 3 mm. The neoprene is made from an elastomer foam with insulating properties. We test and guarantee the quality of our neoprene materials.

Watertight assembly

The seams are stitched and glued for a watertight seal and durability. The seams are "blind-stitched." The thread does not go all the way through the neoprene, preventing water from getting through. The absence of threads on the inside avoids irritation and chafing. An external seal on seams further reinforces durability and waterproofing.

Our wetsuit models are also classified by water temperature range: Warm water, Temperate water, Cold water. Our wetsuits are designed to meet the needs of the most demanding surfers.
