After continuous years of testing different ways to combine design, material and technique, Waterproof now have some of the best wetsuits, drysuits and accessories in the world.
These are brilliant, have made a massive difference to how long I could swim. The 5mm makes such a difference. Really easy to get on, very snug and the cuff is long enough to cover the end of the arms on a wetsuit so really good for when the water is at its coldest.
These gloves are well made and definitely warm but... mine stretched after the first couple of wears and started letting water in around the cuffs. That, plus the 5mm neoprene meant that I felt like I was swimming in flippers 😅, and I gave them up after about a week. Definitely go for the smallest size possible. They are super warm when they fit and will definitely help you in the depths of winter.
Protect your hands
In winter you need just that extra bit of neoprene. I suffer with cold hands normally, so you can imagine swimming through the winter; cold and painful hands, even with light gloves. This year I invested in these and they are worth it! Good investment, very durable - they will last me for years! Seabirds service also quick and reliable - excellent - thank you!
These 5mm gloves are helping me get through the winter dips. I suffer terribly with cold hands and these have helped keep them warmer and still functioning when I get out & change. I initially ordered a medium but needed to get small - as I live in Brighton a swap to get the right size was arranged quickly and with no quibbles. Excellent and quick service!

5mm Wet Glove from Waterproof
Love my 5mm gloves! Well made, easy to get on and off and above all - they keep my hands WARM while I swim. No more stinging, numb fingers while I'm trying to get dressed. I bought the medium and it is snug but my hands are on the large side. Very, very happy with this purchase.
Great quality item, perfect fit. Very happy to support local small business and sea swimming
I think these gloves are excellent. No more cold hands but I see they have added nw thy come up big. I ordered medium and they are a tad big I should have got the small but I was so keen to wear them I have worn them in the sea . So I suggest yes go smaller . I am not petite so thought Medium but try smaller . The gloves are excellent and the service is always excellent with seabirds . Highly recommend
