Are you tired of holding a light in one hand and a camera in the other while scuba diving? Does your hand start to cramp up during night dives from holding your torch? Wouldn’t it be a lot better if you could just place the light somewhere else?

If you answered ‘yes’ to any of those questions, you should check out dive light gloves. They allow lights to be securely mounted on top of your hand; as a result, you can explore virtually hands-free.

Advantages of using dive light gloves

Dive light gloves let you better control your diving experience. Also, you will find it easier to adapt to the environment. As a side note, the quality of your photos will dramatically improve, because gloves make it easier to set up shots. Using these gloves has another advantage. The speed with which you control your light increases. As such, your overall reaction time significantly improves.

How to choose the right product?

Before you zero in on the gloves you would like to purchase, make sure you tick all the following boxes:

Material: The material used for the gloves should be durable and comfortable – always try the gloves on before purchasing them. If you order online, test the gloves out before the return period ends; the last thing you want is an itchy, uncomfortable hand while diving or a glove that rips after a few uses.

Straps: The glove straps must be really stable. This is especially important because of the light’s added weight. The straps must also be easily adjustable.

Functionality: The gloves must hold the light securely in place. Plus, its straps must be long enough to accommodate the light you use, and wide enough to keep the light securely in place. Generally, a thicker, heavier light will need a glove with thicker, heavier straps.
