Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for ice climbing and mixed climbing I used these gloves all winter long ice climbing mix climbing. A great thin glove with good dexterity and warmth. As many ice climbers say it's good to climb in thin gloves then put a warm pair on at the belay. These gloves are perfect for steep ice climbing and technical climbing. I used them on several long routes in Colorado and mixed climbing in the Ouray ice park. So far I've been very happy with these gloves. I've used them about 25 days and they still look new.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great dexterity and build I've been using these gloves for several years now and previous incarnations for maybe eight years. These are a great snug fitting glove, no flappy loose material to worry about. The new leather on the palm is fantastic and sticky. They are not very warm, but for warmer weather and more technical or demanding routes, you'll be psyched.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great glove This is a great glove for ice climbing. For me there's no excess fabric in the fingers and the grip is outstanding. BUT, this is not really a warm glove and has no real protection from rain or wind. After going through a bunch of different gloves this is the best I've found for ice climbing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My go to ice climbing glove It seems that every year I am looking for the perfect ice climbing glove. A perfect Ice climbing gloves, in my opinion, must have DEXTERITY, WARMTH, and a little bit of knuckle protection. In my 10+ years of climbing frozen water this glove has been BY FAR my favorite. It fits my hand snugly...with no excess bunching in the fingers. I can quickly place screws, tie and UNTIE knots. I have guided ice in these gloves when it was -10 and the wind whipping up to 50mph....and still stayed warm!! I also recommend these gloves for alpine climbing when DEXTERITY is a must. It seems like I am recommending these gloves to my clients every time I go out. My only problem with these gloves is that the seams didn't hold up. When I climb I am always managing ropes, pulling rope, rappelling and giving a belay....thus the rope is always running though my hands....I literally destroyed two pairs of these in 20 days of guiding. I will say I continued to use them even with the holes and my hands stayed pretty warm. These gloves do get a little wet, so I recommend buying two or three pairs and changing them up as the day goes on. I had some days that they would get wet and I never changed them and other days I would use a second pair. GREAT glove, its just that they will tear in the seams with use. These gloves do give me more confidence on lead because they have such good feel and dexterity. I highly recommend them!

How much temperature do the gloves can withstand?

Asked by: Knivor
​We do not provide temperature ratings on clothing because warmth depends on so many different variables including activity level, metabolism, perspiration as well as the other clothing layers you are wearing.​
