I dive out in the Pacific Northwest, and currently I am using 7mm wet gloves. They are kind of bulky (and cold), and so, I'm looking at a set of dry gloves. Does anybody have any recommendations, based on experience, for dry glove systems.
Assuming you have a drysuit with latex seals, I use the Diving Concepts rings. Gloves are about $15 to replace, easy on, easy off. Retail for about $150. I think they might come with compressed neoprene gloves now, not entirely sure. If you need gloves with seals built in see http://www.nordic-blue.com/
Chris at COVCI has them for 125.000 including shipping. http://www.covci.com/catalog/product...1d0ccaf78752f1
I'll probably get me a set in the next month or so. My last drysuit had the same set up and they worked great although i am not fond of the large plastic rings that tend to be bulky but there is not much you can do to get around that unless you go the endurotech route or the gloves jonnythan mentioned with built in wrist seals.

I love my diving concepts setup. Although there is one feature I like about the bare system. If you get the cuff permanently attached to your suit, you can use the ring system to put a wrist seal in, without being permanently attached. Then incase of a wrist seal blowout, it's a 2 min swap.
If I was to buy again, I'd still probably go with the DC.
Does anybody use the DC crushed neoprene gloves, and if so, do they like them? I know you can buy about 10 pairs of the rubber gloves for the same price. So, I was wondering how long the blue gloves last for most people, and whether it might be useful to look into the crushed neoprene ones.
