    Wetsuit and Accessories

    So I finally broke down and picked up a shorty wet suit, mostly because of the weather at the Midwest gathering. Also got a pair of 3mm boots to go with it. Now I am looking for some gloves. Don't have a local watercraft store and most of the online gloves seem to be for diving. Any recommendations on something good for riding?

    My wet suit is one of the best investments I ever made! An Extra 4 weeks at the beginning and end of the season. This year we had some strange weather I actually used it early morning on some overcast rainy days in July. You will be happy with the option of being warm.

    I've got a set of the Jet Pilot Heatseeker gloves, they're fairly thin and provide good grip even when wet. I think watercraft superstore has them as well as dennis kirk.

    Here ya go: https://www.denniskirk.com/jetpilot/.../3420919XL.sku

    Get a full suit, and extend your season by 2 months on each end.

    I've got a small selection. Jet Pilot, Fly and Jettribe.

    The Jet Pilot pair I've used regularly for a few years and are just starting to wear out. They're heavier than the other two, although they all have good grip. Had them all with me at the Gathering.

    Gloves and shoes can get skanky after a few wearings. I use "Sink the Stink" to clean them. It's the stuff divers use for their gear.

    Get yourself a full two piece wetsuit as well. Extend the season!

    Do any of the options actually keep your hands warm?

    I use scuba style gloves to keep my hands warm. I have a pair of 5mm gloves for cold weather riding and they work great. Obviously, you could go thinner if you aren't going to be riding in sub 50 degree temps. The 5mm can be a little stiff.

    Wetsuitwearhouse.com is where I bought all my gear from.
