Full review:

"'Gloves for people who don't like to use gloves - and for those that do," one tester said of this full-leather armor. Another user called them "lifetime durable" after a few months of 12-pitch days in Wyoming and California. An extra layer of suede is positioned right across the palm and inside thumb where the hands see the most abrasion when lowering and rappelling. The fingerless design gave testers much more dexterity so they weren't fumbling through cowhide to operate carabiners or build anchors, and small, extended pull tabs on the middle and ring fingers gave these hand protectors an A+ for easy on-off. Despite the beefy construction, the gloves didn't get swampy. Fat knuckle protection makes these suitable for aid climbing and big walling when the backs of your hands get wrecked. They're sized slightly small, so consider up-sizing."
