RATING AND REVIEWS

Functional and well made

5

Purchased these gloves for use as a ZipLine guide. They provide the needed protection while maintaining required finger dexterity for manipulating carabiners, tethers and trolleys.

Good sizing

Unlike the metolius fingerless gloves which are way too small and tight (i ordered their size XL and they are too tight for my size M hands), these XL have plenty of room and are comfortable.

Rope gloves

Great fit. Leather protection continues around inside of hand between thumb and first finger. "pull tabs" on middle two fingers makes taking gloves off a snap.

So far I love them.

I like the little pulls pieces on the middle and ring finger. This helps with on and off and with protection for that joint climbing or using them with weight bars or axe handles.

Great fit

These are great! I use them for MTB riding as well as climbing and anything else that I don't want full fingered gloves. The quality is excellent and I love the way they fit and they are easy to remove either the pulls.

Durable and Breathable

I use these to climb steel, either on via Ferrata or stage truss. My hands would get torn up without gloves but I still need to handle equipment and not drop anything. These work.

I'm an Outdoor Ed teacher. These gloves keep my hands in good shape while rigging and belaying hundreds of meters of rope this season. Tough, breathable and a good fit. The only con is that the hook side velcro cuff is too sticky. It hangs onto harnesses, fleece, slings and any other fabric.

Good glove, questionable sizing

Nice lightweight belay gloves. The suedes leather on the fingers helps with rope feel while feeding and pulling a lot. Having some texture on the palm Keeps hands relaxed while holding your climber off the wall. Sizing is weird - palms are huge and fingers are tight. I went through three pairs before I found one that mostly worked. The Velcro closure is a bid awkward to get tight (which wouldn't matter so much if the palms fit snugger). I do not believe the carry loops will last very long.

Love, love my new gloves!

Super stoked for these gloves! It took a while to convert to gloves and it was a great transition. Super light weight and breathable.
