Ice climbing never felt so warm.
The Rab Baltoro Glove will make a great addition to your ice climbing kit, and you can use it for any cold and dry condition when keeping your hand warm is a priority. Its Matrix DWS outer fabric offers a full range of motion so you won't fumble around when you're placing your next piece of protection. Rab added Primaloft insulation on the back of the hand so it'll stay nice and toasty while you climb without hindering dexterity.
Rab also integrated Pittards Armortan leather across the palm so you have a sticky grip on your axe (no more of that scary slippery feeling). Its bemberg palm lining feels like silk so your hand stays comfortable after multiple pitches of climbing. There are leather reinforcement patches over the critical seams of the Baltoro for increased durability against ice and other abrasive substances. The drawcord cuff closure secures over your sleeve quickly.

Rab & PrimaLoft
PrimaLoft has become the benchmark in synthetic insulation and is now the go-to choice for climbers looking for static protection in extreme conditions. Here at Rab we use the highest quality PrimaLoft Gold insulation in all of our PrimaLoft products.
The technical qualities of PrimaLoft Gold insulation are second to none. Microfibres trap body heat to make it the most thermally-efficient synthetic insulation available today, which even when wet will maintain 96% of its warmth.
Warm. D*mn warm.
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
There really isn’t that much to say about these gloves other than the fact that they are warm as hell. They’re also super durable and the paneling on the palm and fingers is really good and grippy. The fleece on the inside feels like heaven. Also, they have a really nice cinch closure system on the outside snow flaps to keep the snow out. They have my approval, hands down.
