Belaying with a gloved hand is nice, but climbing with sweat-soaked hands is a bummer. Get the best of both worlds with the Black Diamond Crag Climbing Glove. The synthetic leather palm and fingers give you a sure grip while the breathable mesh fabric helps you stay dry and cool.
- Stretch mesh fabric is lightweight and highly breathable
- Synthetic leather palm and fingers provide a secure grip
- Reinforced thumb and index finger add durability to high-wear areas
- Hook-and-loop cuff provides a snug closure

Does this glove have any water proof...
Does this glove have any water proof properties?
This glove doesn't have any water proof properties. I forgot my regular snow gloves last spring and put these on instead. They were soaked in just a couple of minutes. Check out the Black Diamond Dirt Bag Glove. A minimal glove that will keep you dry for the most part.
my wife picked these up on sale. i'm a little skeptical of the artificial leather, but after a few months of lowering my 195 pounds on 9.2 - 9.8 rope, they don't show any signs of wear. she is super psyched because it takes a lot of fricition to lower me under control.
it's a cheap way to get your hands some extra protection. worth it.
Light, Good Fit
These are great, don't really effect dexterity, they're pretty thin for a leather glove, which is what I wanted. I just use them for belaying so I wanted them to be light and breathable. Definitely nice to have around when I'm belaying my brother who ways a lot more than I do. They do run a bit small. My hand measured 7.25 inches and the XS fits perfectly, but I'm on the smallest end of that size.
what is the difference between this glove...
what is the difference between this glove (http://www.backcountry.com/black-diamond-crag-climbing-glove) and this one (http://www.backcountry.com/black-diamond-crag-climbing-glove-bld1268)? The only difference that I see is in price. Can someone clarify this for me?
Thank in advance.
Last year's model, that's about it.
