great all around glove

i climb towers for a living and the metolius belay glove is the only glove that stands up to my abuse.

i use all three variations for the hot to cold seasons. the insulated works for 20+ conditions but sometimes i throw a hand warmer under the velcro for extra warmth.

the first to go on this glove is the stitching, especially at the finger tips and the double palm.

my job requires a lot of high speed rope work and this glove has never failed me. the double palm is extremely resistant to rope burn or tearing. the velro wrist keeps the glove secure and stays out of the way.

i only wish that metolius would make a version for colder conditions
