Back to the thread. The best gloves I have for ribbing are Barbour neoprene shooting gloves,they are easy to get on with wet and cold hands,have a reinforced palm but are flexible to use and have a handy little (trigger finger) slip so you can use your index finger on touch screens.would't use anything else and I've tried loads

Showa thermal work gloves. 2.80 a pair, come in very handy waterproof packaging. Showa 451 Thermo Thermal Gloves

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.

Nah they're too stiff and restrictive. Even in XL size those blue ones give me annoying cramp or fatigue in my hands after a couple of hours working. The Showa ones I linked are much more flexible. When diving all dive gloves except dry gloves let water in and even dry gloves leak mostly. I'd only want proper dry diving gloves if water temp was at freezing point. I've dived in snowmelt rivers with normal wet neoprene gloves and been fine all day

So you are a commercial diver? That would be the opposite of how we dive since we try not to touch anything.

A lot of commercial divers here wear leather gloves over a warmer glove. I am sure you have heard it all though.

Your hands are far more cold tolerant than mine. I also haven't had a dry glove leak in at least 50 dives. Even then a pin hole may flood the glove but since there is no water transfer they are warmer than a wet glove that pumps water in and out with every movement.

The XS Scuba neoprene dry (Semi dry) gloves are actually pretty good at keeping water out. I just find I have better dexterity with the blue PVC gloves.
