Blueseventy improved upon their popular swim glove when they created the Thermal Swim Glove by dropping the webbing to allow for a natural feel of the water. The Thermal Swim Glove is also warmer because of the added metal cell liner that stops water absorption and maximizes warmth. A thin slice of silver neoprene is glued to the jersey, keeping it from direct contact with the water. Water absorption becomes non-existent, while warmth is maximized because your body has less water to heat. Metal cell is coated with SCS to made sliding on and off easier.The Thermal Swim Glove is a great open water specific training tool that will also keep your fingers dry in foul bike riding weather.
