    I went ahead and bought the Hyperflex deal too at Wetsuit Warehouse, it's like I couldn't resist the price. I was just looking for a non-5 finger glove cause my Xcel 3m 5-fingers get cold below 43-45.

    I'm pretty much limited to weekends December through February anyway. With the lack of waves, I've only used them twice. Yea, the wrist seal is big and the stitching on the inside kinda rubs against my fingers. They have been pretty warm though for now, I'm doubting they will last long. Even when I first opended them up, the glued seams look weak.

    I had heard a lot of good things about Hyperflex wetsuits, I guess their glove technology hasn't caught up and maybe that's why they are priced so low.

    That always happened to me as well. It also always happened between the fingers on 5 finger gloves as well.

    I now wear Xcel 7mil mittons. Super warm, and no leaks in their third season. Prior to these gloves I was lucky to get through a season with a pair. I highly recomend these, although they aren't cheap.
