Made by UK wetsuit company C-Skins, these neoprene gloves originate from the world of surfing where their ethos is to ‘get in the water as much as possible’, we like that ethos and apply it ourselves to outdoor swimming and these gloves will help you do just that!
The 2mm neoprene C-Skins gloves will extend your swimming season into early spring and late autumn. Made from flexible 2mm neoprene for warmth, the snug long cuffs and liquid rubber sealed seams makes them ideal open water swimming gloves. Don’t be fooled by cheaper imitations, get a snug fit and the sealed seams ensure will ensure you won’t be flapping around in these gloves. The build quality on these gloves is exceptional.
The tighter the fit the better when it comes to swimming, order them small to get the best fit when wet. Tuck the cuff edge of the gloves under your wetsuit for even better results.

Read this article before choosing your swim gloves and size: Swim Glove Sizing for Swimmers
Size Guide: Please see the size guide in the product images and read the article detailed above. These gloves ‘come up’ big. Most ladies would be ordering 3XS – XS and most men order XS – M depending on hand size and we find swimmers usually get a better fit in the water by choosing a size down from that specified on the chart.
C Skins neoprene gloves for swimming: Ideal swim gloves to help keep your fingers from freezing in cold water. These C-Skins gloves are great – they have our complete recommendation and are the choice of all of our Open Water Swimming Club members. Use them on cold days and chilly morning swim sessions.
