Thread: Wetsuit Quiver

  1. #1

    Wetsuit Quiver

    Wanted to hear everyone's wetsuit quiver...list your surf state, thickness and quantity of each thickness. Couldn't find a thread directly related to this topic either.

    Me:
    New York
    (1) 6/5/4 hooded
    (1) 4/3
    (1) 3/2
    (2) spring suits

    Two winter suits would be optimal for dry second sessions. Contemplating on getting a 5/4/3 to complete my arsenal of rubber.

    -xcel 5mm gloves

    love these gloves but do you have any tips for putting them on? it's lame, but i can't seem to get the cuff straight when i put on the second glove with my other gloved hand. it's always rolled under and not water tight. anyone?

    To put my gloves on I do this:

    Before I put my arms through my wetsuit sleeves, I put both of my gloves on. Then you stick your gloved hand in a grocery bag and slide your hand down the sleeve. Then do the same with the other arm. This way you dont have to deal with rolling your sleeves and you get a nice fit with the sleeve over your glove.

    thanks, this will help because you do have to roll the suit way up to fit over the longer glove. but i still struggle with the cuff of the second glove. when i put it on it rolls under then my other hand is too bulky to fix it.
