Burliest gloves?

I'm looking for recommendations for the toughest, most abrasion resistant gloves available. I've already got some dyneema gloves but I'd like something a little warmer for here in Oregon. I would prefer 5mm, but 3mm would work as well. If they came in XXL that would be great too.

Well, whaddaya got?

Check out these gloves. We have had very good feedback from our Pacific NW customers.

Hey Guys,
I am totally stoked with my “Kevlar Jacketed Yamamoto Diving Gloves”, specifically made for California Divers who dive in cold and rocky waters.

WARMTH: First of all, these gloves are crazy warm. Like all of my gloves and wetsuits, my gloves are made using the finest Genuine Yamamoto neoprene material and are available in 3mm and 5mm thickness. They are ergonomically cut for unbelievable comfort and maximum dexterity. They also include an extra wide Velcro closure strap which locks warm water in and prevents cold water from entering.

DURABILITY: Not only are these gloves warm, these gloves are tough…KEVLAR TOUGH! The palms and fingers have a jacketed exterior Kevlar shell that will outlast and outperform any glove you have ever worn.

MAKO DIRECT PRICE: Only $39.95 pair! Don’t let this low price fool you. These are high quality, high performance, Yamamoto/Kevlar Diving Gloves. The reason I can offer these badass gloves for such an amazing price is because I sell direct to you, the diver.

If you have any questions about these or any other MAKO Spearguns products, please feel free to contact us at any time.

Dive safe,
dano

Re: Burliest gloves?

Might have to give these a try myself. I really tear up the Yazbecks in the winter on shellfish duty out here.

Re: Burliest gloves?

Those gloves are pretty much similar or the same as the ones that I've had for the last 20 years, if you look at this link there Kevlar is called Dino hide pretty much the same.
http://www.harveys-divesuits.com/products/accesories/

They are great for the warmth that you get here in these cold waters, and being a thicker neoprene easy to use for spearfishing.
So I recommend getting them technology is been around probably over 20 years for these types of wetsuit gloves.

Re: Burliest gloves?

I picked up a pair of the Mako gloves last spring. They lasted for 10 or so outings before the exposed stitching wore through and the seams on the fingers separated. It seems like external stitching is an inherent failure point, no matter how tough the fabric that the seams hold together.

Has anyone found gloves with internal stitching on the seams?

Yeah the yazbecks are very awesome well sealing, flexible and warm gloves... I've gotten a few pairs now from ya - except winter shellfish days destroy the fingers fairly quick. If you need a warm glove buy these!

But alas, it seems like the mako's will be a better alternate glove for those non-fishing collection days we have up here in the winter.

The Mako Kevlar gloves are the absolute bomb. PNW tested.

I tried getting some 5mm's from them for most of last year, but they were seemingly forever backordered. Gave Spear America an email and I had a couple pairs shipped within a day.

Try them... The ones neptonics sells are the same Yazbecks on Spear America.

Re: Burliest gloves?

I got a pair of Ullr gloves in the mail the other day. They've got rolled (internal) seams on the fingers, so that's a good start. The reinforced fabric on the palms has exposed stitching, but hopefully applying some seam sealer will protect them, or at least keep the stitches from running if a couple of loops do get abraded through. The only cons are that they are only 2 mil, and XXLs just barely fit. The coast is pretty hairy right now, but I might try to jump in the river soon to try them out.

Having gone through 3 pairs of gloves in the last two years, it sure seems like there is a great market opportunity for someone who can come up with a truly bomb-proof design. The Mako gloves would be a good candidate if they didn't have exposed stitching on the fingers.

It has been a while since this post was made. A complaint was made that the stitching did not hold up as well as the rest of the glove. We place a lot of importance upon customer feedback - both positive AND negative.

Of course I do my best to ensure customer satisfaction, but in this case, I felt that there was room for improvement.

I'm happy to announce that our Kevlar cold water gloves have been modified to include a layer of latex rubber over all the sewn seams.

This significant improvement will provide maximum protection of the sewn seams, will prevent (or greatly reduce) any unraveling of the sewn seam when the thread has been cut and will also provide an added layer to ensure imperviousness of the seam to water penetration.

Any significant abrasions that compromise the latex AND sewn seam will be isolated by the latex and the thread will not "run" or pull out.

This most recent upgrade is consistent with our continuing efforts to improve the quality and selection of the products we bring to market.

Thanks

Dano
