I've used several dry glove systems before and the Thenar system gives you maximum room for your hand while allowing for flexible grabbing and bending of the wrist. I really like that they are made of aluminum and give me a very comfortable grip for reaching my bail out tanks or other items clipped off. Very rugged, and I can see they will hold up better than other plastic oval dry glove systems. The only down side I have is a slight annoyance in getting the gloves off. Very minor and I'm sure I'll get better at as I get more dives on them and learn the trick.
