Great fit at an excellent price point
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Just bought these and used them at the gym once - going to be rappelling and climbing in Zion with them in March so it will put the durability to the test.
True to size and very affordable.
Good for scrambling
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I'm a peakbagger and need hand protection when climbing class 2 and 3 terrain. This glove does a good job in protecting the knuckles and in general feels snug. What I don't like are the flaps extending past the half-finger mark. I specifically use half-finger gloves because I need the tips of my fingers free to reach up the rock and get a good grip. Since the flaps keep getting in the way, I might end up just snipping them off. The material is also not very breatheable: after many hours of wear in demanding conditions, the glove feels constricting, especially when sweat and dirt are involved. Upon dirtying, the leather material on the palm looks like it'll never clean up, but it comes out like new after every washing. I try not to abuse my gear; I've been careful with these BD Crags thus far, yet I'm constantly under the impression that all it takes is just one sharp rock to slice right through them. I'll be surprised if they last me one year.
Great Fit, Great Price
I love that these gloves come in plenty of different sizes. For anyone wondering what size will fit them best, these gloves match up very well with the size chart.
Good Value Glove Option
I picked these up because I wanted to give the synthetics a try as my dedicated gym belaying glove. So far they are wearing better than expected and have exceeded my expectations. A great option for gym climbers or those who will not be using the gloves on a regular basis or to an extreme degree.
