Uk's Largest Selection of Wetsuit Gloves from O'Neill, Rip Curl, C-Skins and Many Other Brands. Wetsuit gloves are essential for keeping your hands warm while surfing or swimming in cold water. Made from neoprene, they provide insulation and flexibility. These gloves cover the wrist and seal off the opening to prevent water from entering. Some of the higher-end gloves feature fluffy warming linings while some are in the form of Mitts or Lobster gloves which keep your fingers closer together for added warmth. Wetsuit gloves are important for preventing hypothermia and maintaining hand dexterity for surfers. They can also be used for other water sports like kayaking or paddleboarding.
