    Viking dry glove system

    Hello, I am new to drysuit diving and I am concidering buying a viking rubber suit and I was wondering if anyone had experence with their dry gloves, and if they were easy to take on and off. Would I be better off with the diving concepts system.

    Welcome to the board; I see this is your first post here. I suspect that you have more than a passing knowledge of diving if you're talking about Viking suits.
    Viking's new bayonet dryglove system is made by Si Tech, an extremely reliable outfit.
    You can use a great variety of different gloves with their system, even the $2/pair military surplus chemical jobbies.
    The gloves latch & unlatch with about 1.5" of rotation, and they're secure to the point of being CE hazmat certified so you can go swimming in raw sewage or take a dip in your local nuke plant's reactor core.
    I'm only slightly biased though, being a Viking dealer & all.
    Where abouts are you located?

    As a slight hijack...
    Hey Bob, got any suggestions for alternative gloves for the older style viking drygloves with the rings? I finally ripped a hole in one of mine, pretty much right where it goes over the ring and need to get a new one...
