    Mechanix Mpact fingerless are the ****. The rubber on top helps with Goodman handle rub in longer dives too.

    I was worried about the leather they use getting wet /drying repeatedly. Haven't had great luck with Mechanix gloves.

    Searching 'Framer's Gloves' has netted a plethora of results in 3 finger open gloves.

    They shrink a bit, but I got about 6 months of every weekend cave diving out of my last pair.
