They are very warm but you lose a lot of dexterity (especially compared to the original Kubi set up).
They also keep you warm when they get wet (due to clumsiness or because you're getting sweaty).
I'm diving in 6C water and for a 40min dive I don't even need to lift the hands to get the warm air to fill the gloves.
I really have not found anything warmer than the ragg wool that also allow a reasonable degree of dexterity. I have used them in the Arctic and Newfoundland/Labrador and although I am not saying my hands were warm they were certainly adequate.
I have the Showa 720 Nitrile Glove - Medium - Size 8 which is exactly my size. Because of that, i can only use one layer of liners. I tried the 4E G1 liners and even though they were pretty warm, it was really hard to put the drygloves on top of them and it was quite tight during the dive. Not really comfortable.
I tried the https://www.arket.com/en_dkk/men/ba...cSEn04lLDl1h8WWwr1OFD6rY8tF3OA4BoC4hUQAvD_BwE and while they we much more comfortable they weren't warm enough.
No i am thinking of getting the KUBI Icelandic wool thermal inner gloves or the 4E Xerotherm liners. Are they enough as one layer? Should i go a size (or two) up on my drygloves and get thicker gloves like the Hestra insulates liner long / OMS Quallofil / more layers?
Dexterity is a huge issue for me, with the 4E G1 it was already not easy to do some tasks, so i prefer as few layers as possible.
