Sealskinz...

I wear these for sailing and driving the rib - have found them to be very good and I've had them for the last year. Some, at least of the Global Challenge crews wear them so.....

I have loads of gloves (mainly come from xmas presents), however, i have two i like

1) Ski gloves

How about a pair of these: Use them diving, bit cumbersome but you can squeeze most of the air out, to put them on you just shove your hand straight in.

Xerotech Dry Gloves:
  • Warm and Dry!
  • Excellent dexterity
  • Durable textured rubber glove outer
  • Thick lining for warmth
  • When warmth is the greatest concern its better to be dry,
  • Drysuit style wrist seal
  • Can be used with either wetsuits or drysuits
  • Sizes 8 (small), 9 (medium), 10 (large - XL)

What the f*ck does that mean? When one attacks another persons nationality it shows an extreme lack of intelligence and serious lack of credibility - I'm not surprised a comment like that is spewed out of your little cyber-world. Mr Done Everything in the World, bloody know it all!

I remember the first post I modified...

You know those concrete bollards you see, well 1 Landrover going at 10mph is enough to shear it clean off at the base and then run over it, still the sun was in my eyes and the girlfriend was saying something...cant remember what now, but suffice to say the next time I passed the car park they'd painted its replacement bright yellow. Looks they had watched me on CCTV.

I've worked in South Africa, with South Africans and for South Africans. My wife's "ex" is a South African....... and I say....

"I've travelled this whole world of ours from Barnsley to Peru........"

Just kidding, Charles... there's no difference between a decent person from the UK and a decent person from SA ....or.... a tosser from the UK and a tosser from SA....

Sealskins are IMHO the best gloves for driving a RIB - I went on a long search for some good gloves that would do the trick when i got my new boat in October (knowing that i would be doing a lot of winter trips) and finally found the sealskins in my local outdoor adventure outlet.

They are waterproof, thermal lined, breathable and have an amazing dot grip pattern printed on the palm which is almost tacky to the feel - this makes holding on to things a breeze. Because they are not bulky at all you can do most of the things that you would normally have to take your gloves off for.

If they ever wear out - I will certainly be buying another pair...
