Frequent cold-water divers know that keeping the extremities warm inside their drysuits is really important.
To that end, Swedish company SI TECH has launched a new inner glove, which is thin and flexible with very good thermal capability.
The Kleven Inner Glove is knitted with 97 percent polyester hollow fiber and 3 percent spandex. Advanced materials and deliberate design ensures good heat insulation and a faster drying time than comparable materials, according to the company. It also features a short cuff and is tight around the wrist, minimizing the chance of it getting stuck in the locking mechanism of a dry glove system.
The Kleven Inner Glove will replace SI TECH‘s former Thinsulate inner glove.
Jonas Axelsson, Managing Director of SI TECH AB, says:
“Our new inner glove works very well for diving in water temperatures down to 10-12 degrees Celsius [50-54 degrees Fahrenheit].”
The new gloves are available in three sizes: medium, large and X-large.
The gloves will cost about 10-11 Euros/US$10.77-$11.84 per pair. For more info, check out the SI TECH website at sitech.se.
