Protect those hands.
DIVING IN TROPICAL waters is a wondrous experience, but the thing about warm water is, it feels so good being in it that it’s easy to forget that the neoprene you wear is for protection as well as for comfort. Tusa’s DG-5600 does a pretty good job of delivering both. The glove is lightweight with a poly-mesh, high-stretch spandex-like backing so your hands have plenty of freedom of movement, while on the palm side a poly-vinyl suede-like textured material provides some protection in the high-wear areas. This poly-vinyl material is on the upper portion of the fingers too, a nice extra. The glove’s fingertips are boxed to afford more move-around room, yet they are still relatively dexterous. We found we could pick up a quarter and a nickel while wearing the gloves, although a penny eluded us. The DG-5600 has a short neoprene gauntlet that reaches a bit beyond the wrist and secures with an adjustable wristband.
Overall, this is a comfortable glove that will no doubt do a good job of protecting hands from cuts and potential infections from inadvertent brushes with coral or encrusted ladders—if, that is, the tropical dive destination you’re heading to still allows divers to wear gloves—but that’s a discussion for another time.
