Comments about Henderson Insta Dry 3mm Gloves:
I use the 3mm gloves for photography in water that runs as cold 48 degrees but mostly is in the 55-60 degree range and do 60-90min dives regularly. Hands stay warm, I can operate the camera buttons easily. Great dexterity, easy to operate small camera buttons, easy to get on and off. Down side is that all that stretchy form fitting material just does not stay sewn together very well after repeated putting on and taking off. Would not be very good for diving where you need to be gripping lines or moving around wrecks. I rarely touch or grip objects underwater. I get about 50 or so dives out of a pair before they start getting holes around the seams between the fingers. I am doing 100+ dives per year and like these gloves enough that I don't feel that one new pair a year is a big price trade off for their other qualities. Nothing is more annoying to me than bulky thick gloves that make it impossible to do the most simple tasks and really don't keep your hands that warm. Just time it to buy your annual pair in the fall :-).
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Great glove, but short lifespan
About Me Advanced Diver
I've used these gloves for just over 100 dives (14 months) and love the fit, but they are starting to come apart. The spaces between the fingers are forming holes and the seams around the wrist are almost ready to completely let go. They do keep your hands very warm and allow for maximum dexterity, but they just don't hold up in the long term.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I've used these gloves when diving both (somewhat) professionally and recreationally. I used these gloves in 55-degrees of water for 3 continuous hours, and felt as warm as toast. No water movement, nothing. Best of all, the gloves didn't compromise my dexterity. Only quibble is that they're a little hard to put on when dry, but like all InstaDry gear, a good dip in the water prior to donning makes things much easier.
Very nice gloves

Great gloves! They fit tight to your hands and stretch to your movements. This allows for virtually no water to move through & cool your hands. They are made of a rubber-like material that does not absorb water, but I would not call them "insta-dry" as it doesn't dry, it only sheds the water. The only concern about the gloves that I have is their degree of durability as after the second dive I noted the cuff seam looked as if it had started to show some wear.

About Me Technical Diver
Used 3mm gloves in 54 degree water. Hands stayed warm throughout day doing 3 different 45 min dives. Great dexterity- able to manipulate bolt snaps without difficulty. I had no difficulty getting gloves on and off. I trimmed about 0.5 inches off of wrist of each glove to faciliate wearing with my dry suit seals.
