Wetsuit gloves are probably the one part of your wetsuit that you think of the least. After all, they are aggravating to wear and can really decrease your ability to grasp things and to manipulate the controls of your buoyancy control device (BCD) while underwater. Because they can be so annoying to wear, many divers prefer to dive without them, except in situations of extremely cold water. Even though these neoprene gloves can be very aggravating to wear, they are still a very important part of your dive gear and are an important way to help your body preserve heat. Your wetsuit hood, wetsuit boots and other parts of your wetsuit hold in body heat. Your diving gloves are no different. By choosing not to wear these gloves, you can put yourself at risk by losing body heat through your hands. Losing too much body heat while in the water can lead to hypothermia. This occurs when you lose so much body heat that your core temperature drops below the temperature needed for normal metabolism. Your temperature doesn't even have to drop too much for problems to materialize. 95 degrees is when most people start to experience signs of hypothermia. So, even though the water may not feel too cold, don't neglect to wear your neoprene gloves to protect your valuable body heat. There are many popular brands of wetsuit gloves to chose from including Body Glove, Xcel, Performance, O'Neill, Patagonia, Quiksilver, and others. With so many great options available, you are sure to find a great pair of gloves to fit your needs. And thankfully, neoprene gloves are not expensive at all. A typical pair will run between $20 to $50, depending on style and brand.

Regardless of the water temperature where you are going to be scuba diving, you will still want to wear wetsuit gloves to hold in valuable body heat. Since they are so affordable, there's really no excuse not to have them.
