I've quickly changed my dry gloves to the wrist seals and am very happy with the actual seals. The cuff rings do help access in donning and their weight helps in doffing.
Also, the system's inherent advantage of being field-switchable to dry gloves is not small.
That being said, the cuff rings are one big pain in the butt. Cumbersome, they get stuck on your BC shoulder straps when donning or doffing the BC, they dangle heavily in front of you when you when you doff the upper half during an SI and they limit access into cracks and crevices when lobstering.
I'm still on my first set of wrist seals and wonder what I'm going to do when I need to replace them--do just that or have the cuff rings removed.
