There are many dry glove systems available in the market for advanced drysuit divers. We tested them all and analyzed the pros and cons of each system, trying to find ways to improve and adjust an existing, decent working model into a better performing system. Our criteria is that it has to be easy to mount, dependable, not too bulky, and fit into the existing Waterproof arm design.
We found a 20 year-old patented system that matched our criteria. We evaluated it and worked on solutions. The company that owns the patent was willing to listen to our ideas and work with us to improve and manufacture the resulting design. The result is the new Ultima Dry Glove Ring System. It fits directly in all* Waterproof Drysuits with Integrated Silicone Seals, ISS. And it can also be mounted to all drysuits with fixed latex seals. The Gloves are easy to mount before diving. You can see, hear, and feel when the ring connects properly or when you disconnect it. This system is as close to “fool proof” as it gets! The solid rings on the suit and gloves can easily be mounted in advance. The Ultima system can be attached to all drysuit Latex seals to achieve a complete dry glove system.
