    It's dryglove time of year. My silk glove liners at full of holes after a couple of seasons.
    What are you guys using under your Showas these days? Anything better than motorcycle glove liners?

    I've got a set of FE neo glove liners, they should be very warm, even when wet, but thanks to my sausage fingers they are actually colder when wet than my lined Arco gloves. They are a very tight fit in my size 11 Showas and must restrict circulation to my little finger as it was painfully cold last time I had a glove leak.

    Oxford bike gloves, also some thin RonHill running gloves are what I have.
    Edit Not worn together, either or.

    I use a thin pair of 1.5mm neo gloves, can't remember the make. Nice and warm and an element of insulation in case of a glove leak.

    Karrimor running gloves, £1.50 from Sports Direct (here). I did start off with Santi liners but they were too thick for my liking.

    I use Berghaus gloves. They are about a tenner a pair. Quite thick, but I'm used to them.

    Before I discovered the Arco lined gloves I had a pair of el cheapo fleece gloves from Trespass, cost a couple of quid and were warm enough not to justify spending more.

    I use MARES equipment and the Mares Flexa Fit Gloves 5mm are a very good choice. :couchpotato:

    No they are not - they are a shit choice for wearing under dry gloves.

    I use Hollis, Hammond, Apeks, Beaver, Typhoon, Fourth Element, Sports Direct, Halcyon, Faber, Showa, Tektite, LIght-for-me and home made equipment... does that make me sad?

    ANYWAY, guys and girls, thanks for the responses. The Ron Hill/Karrimor variants sound suitable cheap and cheerful. I think a peruse of Amazon followed by a chilly lake trip is in order.

    No one else want to comment on this?
    OK, I guess it's up to me then...

    Sounds just like my dive buddies...

    Badum. And indeed, Tish!

    I love you really...

    These would probably be pretty good.... Sealskinz, and a bloody good price for sealskinz too!

    (I have no relationship with the sale, just thought UKD might appreciate the heads up)

    The truth regardless if I am or not a distributor of MARES, I am a professional diving and I wear MARES equipment (I've used other brands) and I like it a lot. It was just my opinion on what brand/kind of gloves to use?

    This was about dry glove liners.... are they dry glove liners? NO they fucking aren't.

    We don't actually give a shit here that you use MARES wet gloves.


    Edit: And you're a professional? Really? fooking hell I'm impesssed..... NOT!

    Mares kit is designed to look quite stylish to the new diver, get it in the water and it's usually a bit shit. I had some 1.5mm Mares under-gloves and gave them away as they were pretty useless, judging by the recipients posts on this thread they feel the same.
    I own a Mares Flexa wetsuit but found it uncomfortable, I had a shocking piss bubble in it as the damned thing wouldn't flush easily. Perhaps that counts as a positive review.
    I also owned a AirTrim in my early days (STFU before you start!), even I failed to make it look fabulous in the water and that's saying something darling.
    However, I love my Icon HD, it's shiny and I can look at porn on it during a dive.
    It's a poor substitute for Doomanics sparkling eyes on a stop.
    Oh and new forum members aren't allowed an opinion until they've reached 100 posts, at that point your opinion will be given to you.

    I have some anti honk (yes it's called sink the stink and you can all STFU too), I'll bring a sachet to the meet.
