Can I Wear Any Gloves Under My Drygloves? #askmark #scuba @ScubaDiverMagazine

#askmark Thanks for info about seal drysuit 🙂 There is a lot of info about dry gloves, but little info about under gloves for chilly water diving… So, I am interested in your opinion about more DIY (other than scuba diving manufacturers) under gloves solutions, winter wool, running gloves… Thanks again! 🙂

Great with your info videos. I am from the UK but now live in Denmark sea temp winter 0 – 4C for the coldest dives Santi heated next Hestra Patrol (Swedish) which are amazing and used widely over here, as the temp goes up Enluva (German) merino wool gloves which work well and excellent when filming for finger dexterity, they are designed specifically for divers. Lastly Fourth Element exerotherm. Safe diving all.

#askMark. Dry glove systems , round vs oval, is one better than the other or just personal preference

They both have pros and cons. Oval rings are a lower profile and more _hand-shaped_ but, they do need to be lined up just right so they don’t leak. Round rings have a more consistent seal but, are larger overall.

They both do the job, personally I prefer round rings and put up with a larger cuff ring on my wrist for a consitent seal.

#ASKMARK In balanced rig diving is it recommended that you use ditch-able weights as opposed to getting “there” with non-ditch-able weights? If so whats the reasoning? You could use an alternate buoyancy source (dsmb or liftbag) to establish positive buoyancy at the surface instead of shedding ditch-able weights. Thanks John

For me it’s more about potential failures. If you ditch some lead then you are guaranteed to attain positive buoyancy and reach the surface. Using auxiliary gear such as liftbags have a chance of failure, albeit quite slim.

You can certainly use alternate buoyancy sources before ditching gear but, I’ll always carry some lead that I can ditch should I ever need to.

I usually buy cheap running gloves at a local Decathlon store for summer diving. In winter I need it a bit thicker and use fleece or merino wool gloves.

So glad you are still doing vids Mark! I just came back from a 10-dive trip to Bonaire and had some concerns about flying the day after. How big is the risk of DCS when flying after diving?

If you’re ever worried about DCS it’s best that you contact DAN +1-919-684-2948 just to be on the safe side.
For multi-day recreational diving trips you should leave an 18hr window before your flight. Without knowing the times and profile of your last dive and flight I can’t really comment accurately.

I have my blue Kubis but I also have a few pairs of cheapy merino wool gloves as well. The long cuff isn’t an issue on the few pairs I have with them as they just go over my silicone seals, not under. If you’re in the market for dry gloves I would definitely advise getting enough pairs of under gloves for the number of dives you do in a day, wet gloves are quite uncomfortable when you’re under the water as you know that your hands should be bone dry (think of the feeling of wearing wet socks!). The undergloves have a habit of getting wet when you’re stripping your gear off or you’re keeping them on between dives in the rain.
