    yea i'm with you. they are the warmest gloves I've ever had but it takes me a good 15 minutes to get my second glove on. And by the time I'm done I'm f*cking exhausted lol.
    tips would be great....

    roll that s*** up. i roll both suit arms then roll the gloves n put em on one.. it takes one or two tries for the 2nd one but not too bad considering they dont leak at all.. plus you can actually stick your arm in the wave without getting your glove ripped halfway off

    Yeah thats what I do to put on my drylock glove . Once I got my suit one I roll up the legs and arm and I do the same with the glove and it makes it tons eaiser to get them on

    Have you guys ever heard of the trash bag trick? Doggie Poop Bags work perfect. Put them (or any plastic bag) on your feet like socks before putting them into your suit. Your feet will slip all the way down and out the leg hole with ease. No sticking. Saves you a ton of time getting the suit on!

    Quiver

    Xcel Drylock Hooded 5/4
    Oneill Mutant 4/3
    Xcel Infiniti 3/2
    7mm drylock boots
    5mm drylock lobster gloves

    I've actually found that surf socks are the best to stick into my drylock boots.

    - Wool sweater and jeans in the winter.
    - Jean shorts in the summer
    - 1mm aquasox
    - Latex surgical gloves

    On a serious note the plastic bag trick is the best thing going. Use it for your feet and hands, it makes putting on a suit as easy as putting on regular clothes.
