The marigold/orange gloves are great for dexterity, but not as durable as the blue gloves. Zebra mussels are an issue here diving wrecks and they apparently shred the orange gloves easily. I've used the marigold in the past, just at the quarry.
I am using the Marigold Industrial G17K Black Heavyweight gloves and have found them quite rugged and possibly more resistant to zebra mussels that the blue Showa PVC gloves although those guys will eventually cut anything.

@DevilEyeDog

May I please put in a vote for you supporting an actual real dive shop rather than Amazon? Check with DRIS to make sure they have these in stock before you place the order. The store is only open 10am-5pm right now, but they are still shipping out online order. They're my local dive shop. Thank you! :D

Xerotherm Glove

I just don't log dives
@DevilEyeDog

I'm going to agree with @Marie13 try and buy from a dive shop. I've worked with high pressure air systems before and don't want the hassle, expense or danger of one in my house. Plus right now they really need all the business they can get.

i use thin pinacle merino wool gloves under 4th element xerotherm gloves under rubber chem gloves. i was thinking about getting the 4e g1 to see how that compares . other wise they seem to be pretty good the bulk of my dives are 37-45 degrees and my hands stay warm ish

what is "ish", is that my hands are a little cold, or my hands are freezing but I'm pretty sure I don't have frost bite yet?

My hands get a little cold , to I can't feel them anymore . I have poor circulation to begin with. If I had the money I'd have heated gloves. Alot has to do with workload too. If you never move your hands they are gonna get cold keep making fists to get that blood moving and it helps alot too

Wanted to give everyone an update. Thanks for your suggestions. I purchased the Fourth Element gloves. Yes, definitely worth the price. I added on some merino wool gloves on top. The combination of the two kept my hands decent for 105 minute dive at 44 F. Not too shabby. Was able to keep taking photos with my hands!
THANKS EVERYONE!
