Best gloves for ribbing?

I am looking for some waterproof warm gloves to use on the water. Need good grip and can be got on and off easily, even if hands have got damp whilst gloves are off. Any suggestions?

I've got some of these: Outdoor Sports Mitten - Olive : SealSkinz™ Winter Mittens although in black. They are fine for most RIB activities and you can free the fingers for some jobs. Obviously there are occasions when you need to have bare hands, but these seem to fit most other occasions for me.

We've got the seal skinz winter gloves. Ok when dry but virtually impossible to put on/off if your hands are wet. I couldn't recommend them:nono:

The best gloves I have for being able to put on/take off with wet hands are North Face goretex ones as the lining is fixed to the outer all the way down - I use them in between dives in the winter. I think they may be a bit too thick for using in a RIB for most things though.

Unless you have got a cabin rib like some of these posh blokes on here there's a good chance your gloves are going to get wet so I would look at getting a pair of 2 or 3 mm neoprene dive gloves which work fine for me.

I have some Musto Performance and wear some thin quality Merino wool under gloves beneath.
The wool helps you stay warm even if they get wet.
I've tried loads from Neoprene..Seal skins...Rubber ect,and it's the best Solution I've come across so far.
Having said that....The BEST ADVICE is take a few pairs especially if you know it's going to be Wet out there, or Gnarley Sea conditions are on the cards!..a second rate dry pair are worth a lot more than Top notch wet ones!!
and they'll ALL get wet if the conditions are bad enough...and your out long enough!!thumbs:

Although probably not what you are looking for I will throw these out there. They are only designed to be used with a drysuit, as they mount to the wrist seals or the inner rings permanently mount to the drysuit and allow replaceable wrist seals. They are what I wear for scuba diving and get put on typically before leaving shore. They do need to be kept dry for warmth, but even still underwater a wet dry glove is warmer than a wet wet glove.

Si Tech Quick Clamp Dry Glove System | Dive Right In Scuba - Plainfield, IL - Dive Right in Scuba

Used with these gloves.
DRIS Dive Gear BLUE PVC Dry Suit Glove Replacement | Dive Right In Scuba - Plainfield, IL - Dive Right in Scuba

Here are some other options.
Dry Suit Gloves - Whether you prefer a semidry glove or a fully dry glove - Dive Right in Scuba

Any semi-wet glove is going to be a pain to get on and off whether it is wet or dry.

For dexterity, fit is very important. Any extra material in the fingers is just going to make everything harder. I find most people don't like tight gloves and wear them too loose, then complain about poor dexterity. (Kinda goes with my neck seal is too tight, even though it is not, then complain about leakage.)

Defo neoprene gloves. All you have to do when wet is grab a handful of those disposable gloves by the diesel pumps at garages,put them on first and slip into wet neoprene gloves with ease,simples!!!
