Gloves Oceania Gloves are perhaps the only product on the market that can protect your hand from water. Whether you immerse your entire arm, or your whole body, your hand will remain dry.
"Watertight" or "dry" mode: this is the mode provided when diving the hand in water of medium / short duration. The tight-fitting silicone cuff creates an excellent barrier against the ingress of water. In addition, by trapping the hot air generated by the hand, excellent thermal insulation is created.
"Semi-watertight" or "wet" mode: for sports activities that take place mainly in immersion as the adhesion of the silicone on the wrist is performing, water tends to enter through the cracks caused by the movements of the arm muscles. The duration of the waterproofness of the hand is given by several factors: depth of dives, duration of dives, shape and muscles of the forearm. The process of water sweating is however very slow. Once the water enters it tends to come out more quickly from the same entrance route due to the compressive movements of the hand during the activity, the glove never fills with water and always remains adherent to the hand . Low water circulation creates excellent thermal insulation.
Oceania Gloves have been assigned three levels of impermeability based on their composition (fiber and coating) and the type of assembly.
Low waterproofing level: minimum watertightness . After 10-15 consecutive minutes of immersion of the hand in the water moisture tends to enter through the glove coating.
Average waterproofing level: medium watertightness. Waterproof duration over 3 hours.
Medium/high waterproofing level: medium/high watertightness. Waterproof duration over 12 hours.
