Dry Glove SystemsUpdated 2 years ago

Dry Glove systems have been around for a little while now but it's only in the last few years or so that they have become A) Easy to use and B) Able to be retrofitted to most suits.

Will Dry Gloves fit on my suit?

To answer this question it is best to examine the information below but here is a short breakdown;

  • Both Systems can be fitted without suit modification to existing Latex / Silicone
  • Neither system can be fitted to Neoprene seals without suit modification (Cutting and glueing)


The Ultima System

From the great brand Waterproof this system is designed to be really simple and straightforward, You can also fit this on to pretty much any suit that has existing Latex or Silicone seals on without having to cut or glue your suit - Clever!

Unfortunately, if you have Neoprene Seals you'll struggle to get the Ultima on your suit without getting the seals changed to Latex or Silicone.

If your suit just has the standard latex seals attached to it you can still get the Ultima system installed and with a backup silicone wrist seal in case of a punctured glove the entire suit will not flood, You'll just have a cold hand instead! See below video on how to accomplish this;


The Kubi System

The Kubi Dry Glove System is a marvellous invention which again is very easy to use and can be fitted to pretty much any suit with Latex or Silicone Seals, see video below for a how-to;

Unfortunately for Neoprene Seal owners, you would need to get the seals changed or the Kubi Rings glued into your suit for this to work.

The Kubi System does come in three different ring sizes (80mm, 90mm and 100mm) - to find out which size you'll need please check the size guide
