- Q & A
Ouray Ice Climbing
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
I bought these and the BD Punishers with the advice that I would need one set of gloves for climbing, and while those dried and I belayed I could use the other pair. Turned out I used the Torsion all day. Very nimble glove and and never had too much issue with the ice tools. Very happy with these and can't wait to put them to real use again.
Seriously, get these.
- Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
My brother needed a good glove to wear walking downtown where wind chill and the cold wasn't friendly. He wanted a driving glove that offered dexterity and warmth when you get in the car and your steering wheel is the last thing to warmth up. Something to build snowmen with my nieces and not be soaking wet and fingers frozen once the coal buttons are in place. Let's just say this handled it all with no complaints. We live here in Utah and the snow is dry but the day he wore these to build that snowman it was warm and the snow melting. He mentioned a concern but was nothing but pleased with the outcome. I asked him about any temp rating on these he said he hasn't experienced any time where it was too cold. As far as sizing he likes a good fit for driving gloves and again, dexterity so we went with a Large, it was perfect.
I will be purchasing some of these as a unisex option. I tried these on in a large before giving them to him , yes I'm that person and with the size guide offered (Large : 7.5-8") and my hand measuring at 8" it was the right fit. So along with everything, true to size. I also love the Shark/Slate, very cool color and a good transition out of your 'everything black' issue. Even I will be getting the same color, I always did steal his stuff.
