Hello,

are there any gloves that are thick enougth to protect against very cold water and at the same time be flexible enougth ir order to be able to operate the small buttons and knobs on the camera underwater case?

I find it very hard sometimes impossible to set buttons or knobs using thick gloves

Is there a brand that makes flexible thick gloves?

thanks

Mario

Two trains of though to have a look at, Forth Element 3mm neoprene gloves are superb and I know several people that use them and rave about them, unfortunately never tried them myself canít get a pair big enough. Secondly, if you use a dry suit have you thought about dry gloves, I use the Northern Diver dry glove system, It can be a bit of a pain to get use to them, and a bit expensive, but you can put any type of glove under them, I use these for video and stills.
