O'Neill 5mm Gooru Lobster Mitt Wetsuit Gloves - black
I love the semi-mitt effect. My hands stay so much warmer, and thus my whole body does. It's amazing.
The only "buts" are: Not sure how well the palm cover will hold up - getting a little fuzzy after only a couple encounters with the rocks. Not sure the palm is 5mm, as it looks noticeably thinner than the rest - at the cuff. Which is the last concern... I wish they were a little longer (And, full thickness), as I get some suit sleeve push off on occasion - hand drag/wipe out - far more than I have with my 5mm psycho five finger gloves... But, in the end the increased warmth is worth it. If the palm coating material holds up, I'll get more.
