<font color='#000080'>Given the importance of the "buddy" system to most of the diving orgs. with it's relliance on hand signals for communication between the buddies, why (with the exception of a few dry-gloves) are neoprene gloves available in the colour-options of black, black or black?
It used to really p*ss me-off on training dives to constantly have to half-guess what was going on.
If technicolour ( that doesn't mean tech-black!) dry-suits are available then why not gloves?

Dry gloves seem to come in a wider range fo colours - the ones in my kit bag are orange, and those blue ones seem all the rage..

But yeah, wet gloves do seem a bit more dull.. Still, there's nothing stopping us colouring them ourselves

<font color='#0000FF'>An excellent point Terry. I've got some 2 or 3mm gloves which are quite brightly coloured but they were something donated to me by a warm-water diver so I don't know if they were/are available in this country. Not much use for Scotland and North Sea but may take them darn sarf next time
