The primary function of the Zone3 open water Swimming Gloves is to keep your hands insulated from the cold. The body’s extremities such as hands and feet always feel the cold the most so these gloves are designed to allow swimming in cold water be more manageable.
After testing most swimming gloves on the market Zone3 found that they nearly all started ballooning with water during swimming and started to slip off the hands. A design solution was found by increasing the length of the gloves, so they can be tucked over or under the wetsuit to ensure no exposed skin and also adding a Velcro strap to keep the glove in place.
Zone3 have also removed the webbing between the fingers, which other brands tend to use, to make swimming feel much more natural and less fatiguing. For sizing, we recommended size small for ladies or men with small sized hands and Medium or Large for Men based on hand size.
Together with the Zone3 neoprene socks and caps, these are some of the best-selling accessories and perfect for anybody swimming in cold water conditions.

Zone 3 gloves
Good gloves. I bought a pair in March of this year to stop cold hands in my open water swims. First used in water temp of 9 degrees, water does get in but kept my hands warm. Easy to swim in and not too heavy when wet, any thicker and it would feel uncomfortable. Would buy the product again and would definitely buy from Seabirds- easy website, quick delivery and well packaged.
