Comments about Akona Bug Hunter Gloves (AKFG808):

I purchased these gloves for Florida lobster season and got them at a great price. The gloves fit well and the Armor Tex material gave great protection for handling lobsters. Unfortunately some of the seam stitching on both gloves split on my first dive. I was able to repair the gloves, and I will probably have to make additional seam repairs in the future, but I think the Armor Tex will prove to be quite durable for bug hunting. If not for the stitching, I would rate these as a 5.

Questions & Answers Powered by TurnTo®

Questions about this item:

L W  On a followup question to the gloves. Is the glove completely neoprene, with the front covered by an additional layer of armortex? Or is the front armortex only?
Monica s  They are completely neoprene with armortex stitched only to the front portion.
L W  is armortex like kevlar or something similar? Is this good for regular handling of rough rocks underwater?
KEN B  L W, The ArmorTex feels like a Kevlar type material. When I purchased these gloves, some descriptions I saw said "ArmorTex Kevlar." I purchased these gloves for lobstering in the Florida Keys. I have only used them on a couple lobster dives so far, but those dives have included a good amount of grabbing ledges, holes, and rocks while working lobsters. I have noticed some of the AmorTex material has scraped off on a couple of the fingertips, but it does not look like the material is in danger of tearing. With several other warm water gloves with the Amara palm material that I have owned in the past, I have put holes in the fingertips after just one or two dives. These gloves seem a bit more durable. My only problem with these gloves so far is that some of the seam stitching on both gloves split on my first dive. I was able to repair (sew) the gloves and they seem fine now. I may have to make additional seam repairs in the future, but I think the ArmorTex will hold up okay for bug hunting. If you typically dive with an inexpensive warm water glove with the Amara type palm material, I think you may find these gloves more durable than the Amara gloves for handling rocks. Hopefully this information is helpful to you, and if you do decide to purchase these gloves, I hope you are satisfied with them. Regards, Ken
L W  Thanks, the rocks are barnacle filled volcanic rocks in Galapagos, where we have to hang on for dear life. I hear they shred regular gloves after 1 dive and there are many.
