durable and cool, temp wise
Got these for belaying a a summer camp in Prescott, AZ. Used them four days a week, for ten weeks, with between 15 and 40 belays each day. The leather is a bit polished but is still holding up good. There is a small hole next to one of the thumbs where the synthetic material starts. Not a huge problem but in future models the leather could cover just a bit more. The gloves do well with the heat(95+) most days. All in all a great glove that I would recommend.
