FEATURES OF THE PRODUCT
The 3 mm surf gloves are made of 100% neoprene to ensure better thermal insulation. The neoprene is lined with synthetic fabric for added resistance to wear. Neoprene thickness: 3 mm. Neoprene is a closed-cell polychloroprene elastomeric foam with trapped nitrogen bubbles that have insulating properties. We test and guarantee the thermal quality of our neoprene materials.
Neoprene: how does it work?
By trapping a thin layer of water around the body, a neoprene wetsuit works in two ways: 1. trapped water gradually heats up; 2. heat transfer decreases. The wetsuit and the thin covering of water form a layer of insulation.
The seams are stitched and glued to ensure a watertight seal and durability. The seams are "blind-stitched": the thread does not pass through the entire thickness of the neoprene, which prevents water from passing through. The absence of threads on the inside avoids irritation and chafing. An external seal on seams further reinforces durability and waterproofing.
Surfing gloves should be a very tight fit to ensure the best possible thermal efficiency. It is perfectly normal to have the impression of items being too tight when trying on dry. Choosing well-fitting gloves prevents them swelling with water in use.
