Men's AirBrake Gloves™

Style# 72680OR

Built for days when your ropegun is running low on ammo, the AirBrake Gloves are workhorse full-finger belay gloves with a stretchy, breathable poly-spandex back-of-hand, durable split-suede overlays and Kevlar stitching in areas of high abrasion. Gel pockets on the palm are designed to absorb and dissipate heat caused by the friction created during heavy rope work or long via ferrata routes, and vents on the back of the fingertips allow perspiration to escape while maintaining total-hand protection.

Customer Reviews

Excellent durability (Review by Phil)

Used these gloves while working a job where Mechanics gloves lasted only a week. These lasted over a year. Comfortable, true to size. Fingertips were where they finally failed.

Great gloves but needs better finger tips (Review by Trevor)

Great gloves! Amazing fit and palm but I burned through the finger tips in less than a month with daily heavy rope work.

Men's AirBrake Gloves (Review by By Mr. Cool)

I have been using the Airbrake gloves for about a month now for daily trips to the crag. These gloves rock. The gel palm pockets provide the comfort I need for handling ropes of all sized (tested for 9.4 to 10.1mm ropes) and the kevlar stiching is pretty hardcore and makes the glove feel like it will last. After about a month of consistent use (4/days/week) they are holding up well and are my go to for belaying my partner at the crag. The airbrakes pretty much came broken in and the leather has not hardened due to dirt and sweat. I should also mention my hands have stayed prety warm in coldish conditions and cool in warm weather. If you are looking for a belay glove for all applications get the airbrake.
