    putting on drylock gloves

    if your problem is getting the glove itself on, the best thing is actually to follow the instructions on the box. Roll up the drylock cuff of the glove about an inch or so, so that you are slipping your hand in through neoprene, not the rubber cuff. then just flip it back down when you have your hand fully in the glove. make sure you roll up both cuffs before you start putting the first one on, so you wont have to do it with a gloved hand. flipping the cuff back down can be a little tricky for the second glove, if you just keep on swiping at it with your gloved hand, or try using your teeth, you will get it.

    what are these 'instructions' you speak of?

    actually, i just tried this and it works perfectly. thanks! funny how it's harder to think clearly while freezing your ass off on the boardwalk.

    on the box of the drylock gloves on some side of the box there is a little 3 picture sequence showing you how to put the gloves on the way i just described. Always works pretty well for me.
