In the main you want your hands protected against mechanical damage—scrapes, scratches and bangs—when wreck and cave diving. To this end, Beuchat have covered the palms, the front of the fingers and the fingertips of their 'Premium Gloves' with Kevlar. This will help make these gloves far more durable. I recently did a photo shoot wearing a plain pair of neoprene gloves where I had to do a repetitive task. By the end of it, one of my fingertip pads had worn through, much to my disgust and frustration.
