Thread: Oven Mitts

  1. #1

    Oven Mitts

    Okay, so i was in OCMD today, and i come out of the water, and my gloves are all ripped up. I think my hand got caught on the leash or something, dont really know what happened. So now im looking for new mittens, because i heard they are more durable (the part in between the fingers cant rip or something) and they are alot warmer. I was looking at this one

    http://www.wetsuitwearhouse.com/page...t-gloves/XM61N

    Since its like 25 bucks, i wanna know if it is a good mitt or not. does anyone have this or have friends who have them? I cant find any reviews on the interwebs. I already used the google.
    Thanks guys

    they're cheap and look like they'll last, however i haven't heard great things from hyperflex concerning their gloves. if you want nice mitts, get the xcel drylocks

    Check the wetsuit review sticky thread up above..I'll second the xcel drylocks

    the xcel drylocks look sick, but they are like 50 bucks, and i dont want the same thing happening to them that happened to my oneil lobster claws. Anybody know the flaws exactly with the hyperflex gloves?

    dude, i get a new pair of 5mill hyperflex 5finger gloves every year. they're warm, never had a problem with them, and there 15bucks! I wear these from mid december through about now, and then i switch over to my 3mill oneill psycho gloves (tha shiz). Anyway, i say stick to hyperflex for gloves, but definitely excel drylock boots. thats my standard git-up.

    ive had oneills, xcels and rip curl gloves/lobsterclaws. i now have these 6mm hyperfreak mitts and i dont wear anything else. they r super warm. i cant attest to their durability cuz ive only worn them 10-15 times but so far im very impressed. u absolutely can't beat them for the price. make sure u get the right size they tend to fill up with water if u have too much slop in the fit. i will prob never buy any other winter glove again. all the other companies make nice gloves too but they are twice the price. im anxious to try the 5mm hyperflex claws, i have trouble with circulation so tend prefer mitts but id say def get them u wont be disappointed.
