Wetsuit gloves for detecting

Post by vikingwarrior » Fri Jan 27, 2017 8:34 pm

Hi all I just wondered if anyone else uses wetsuit gloves for detecting? I bought a wetsuit a while ago from some1 and it came with some gloves, when I last went out I couldn't find my usual digging pair so I used them and wow is all I can say, they were fantastic, I was able to have full use of my hands as they were skin tight and i was able to dig away in gravely soil with my hands without even feeling it, they also kept my hands dry and clean in the muddy patches
I would highly recommend to anyone who hasn't tried

I'm sure they are but gosh it could get very expensive unless they last a long time. Are they hard wearing. I use the tight builders gloves with a waterproof coating on the palm and fingers. They are less than £2 a pair and last ages. However if these lasted months they would be a very attractive option in winter ;'h

I was using gardening gloves as well with a pair of latex under but I found after using these they seem to be hard wearing and super comfortable so il se how long they last and since there pin a familiar site for less than a tenna who can complain
