- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I'm a huge fan of these gloves. I purchased them for a recent trip and used them as my go-to gloves for the entirety. The only problems I had were my hands getting too warm on sunnier days. I'm normally a size large in BD gloves and these are no exception. They seem just a tad longer in the fingers than some other larges for BD. Overall though the dexterity is plenty. I was mostly able to manipulate my rope and gear with these on, though I did take them off sometimes in order to get things done a littler more quickly. The leather seems like it is starting to wear a bit. That tends to happen with all gloves after a time though, so it's not particularly an issue.
