    I have an MSF500 and wouldn't be able to fit dry gloves to it without having the sleeves lengthened. Even then I've never looked at the self-fit versions so cannot be sure that a ring with an appropriate diameter can be fitted to the rather tight neoprene sleeve.

    I know with other dry glove systems you can have an additional latex seal fitted over the neo seal that you can then fit the dry glove ring too. I don't know the kubi system that well but don't see why you couldn't do the same.

    There are other options ...

    you can use standalone dry gloves or a different aftermarket system ... a club member had the ND dryglove system retro fitted to his suit and I'm sure he has neo cuffs. It's a big and clunky system IMO but his hands are dry.

    I had the ND system fitted to my old neo ND drysuit. Worked well, but is quite large.
