Gear Question

Has anyone tried both the Petzl Cordex...

Posted on

Has anyone tried both the Petzl Cordex Belay/Rappel Glove and the Petzl Cordex *Lightweight* Belay Glove? Interested in a comparison. . .does it boil down to desired weight (warm vs colder temps, dexerity, etc.)? Thanks!

I believe there is only one glove, the "Cordex", which is advertised and is actually a "lightweight" belay/rappel glove. I have used this glove and it is indeed lightweight. If you want something lighter then I suggest a driving glove. These are great gloves and if you try on several pairs, you will inevitably will find one pair a bit thinner (due to the nature of leather) than the others.
