I wear them ribbing, diving, etc. They're even fairly warm still when wet. I keep around 10 pairs on the rib at all times in winter then you can easily put on a dry pair if you have the need.
You wearing them diving
Those are not even close to sealed up. (Have a look at the links I posted above.) I use that pair for caving, and buy the lightweight version for working around the house, ordering a 10 pack about every 6 months, as I wear them out. Their grip is awesome! Plus dexterity is very good, and they are breathable.
These Showa 495('s) are what I suggest above and what the fisherman wear, as seen on the TV show Deadliest Catch. They could be worn without rings to, as the fisherman do. They also happen to be the same thing we wear scuba diving. Even diving they are far warmer when flooded vs a 5mm neoprene wet glove that lets water in and out. The removable liners are great and I keep spares on hand to swap out while diving (At the surface interval) as I do the gloves themselves in case I hole them. When wearing a drysuit on the boat, I typically have them on too.
