Gloves Oceania Gloves are perhaps the only product on the market that can protect your hand from water. Whether you submerge 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 the 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, although the adherence of 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 waterproofing of the hand is given by several factors: depth of the dives, duration of the dives, shape and muscles of the forearm. The process of exuding water is however very slow. Once inlet the water tends to exit more quickly from the same way of entry due to the compression movements of the hand during the activity, the glove never fills with water and always keeps adherent to the hand . Low water circulation creates excellent thermal insulation.
Oceania Gloves have been attributed two levels of waterproofness according to their composition (fiber and coating).
Low waterproof level : minimum watertightness. After 10-15 consecutive minutes of immersion of the hand in the water moisture tends to enter through the glove lining.
High waterproof level: high watertightness. Waterproof life over 3 hours.

For us who produce them and for our customers who have been using them for some time, wearing Oceania Gloves has become a simple exercise, but some indications are a must especially for those who have never had to deal with diving products. Just as a wetsuit is not worn as a suit, or as a snow boot is not worn as a beach slippers, the procedure for wearing and removing Oceania Gloves has some peculiarities. In our lives we have worn gloves hundreds of times, so the first time we try to wear the Oceania Gloves, we will instinctively try to pull from the sleeve (the silicone will resist), spreading the hand in an attempt to facilitate entry (the tape will resist). DON'T DO IT. After holding the cuff from its end (do not pull near the tape/silicone assembly points), and inserting the hand into the cuff, the glove is slid into the hand that must be kept flat. These little attentions and those few extra seconds to wear it will be rewarded by the performance. Gloves should always be worn and taken off in this way. Putting talcum powder on silicone cuffs, make them much easier to wear. If it is not worn correctly, small necklines may occur on the silicone. Don't worry. Perhaps the glove will lose in aesthetics, but its impermeability is guaranteed as well as its robustness (if pulled excessively it is more likely that the silicone, which in any case has excellent elastic properties, splits rather than a loss of adhesion, compromising its watertightness).
