As East Coast and Pacific Northwest surfers know, a thick pair of gloves can mean the difference between an enjoyable session and a teeth-chattering shiver-fest. Billabong has the answer to your cold-water woes, and its name is the 5mm GBS Glove. Burly yet flexible, this glove uses a thermal lining and thick neoprene to keep your fingers warm without significantly restricting your dexterity. GBS stands for glued and blind-stitched seams, a construction method that ensures that this glove won't spring a leak or pop a seam no matter how hard you paddle or shred.
- Superflex neoprene is warm, breathable, and highly flexible
- 5mm neoprene is ideal for cool- to cold-water conditions like spring or fall on the East Coast
- GBS stands for glued and blind-stitched seam construction that eliminates the potential for leaky seams without restricting mobility
- Pre-bent fingers put your hand in the most natural position for improved dexterity despite the neoprene thickness
