Description

Icefalls are pretty, wet, and cold.

Rab's Icefall Gauntlet Glove gives your hand warmth and protection without sacrificing dexterity while ice climbing. An eVent membrane gives this glove waterproof breathable protection, while PrimaLoft Gold insulation offers warmth in a supremely soft package. Stretchy Matrix fabric covers specific areas in order to ensure a full range of motion, and a Pittards Armortan leather palm gives you a good grip on your axes. Rab also added a drawcord gauntlet closure for a secure fit, detachable wrist leashes for convenience, and a flocking patch that acts as a nose wipe.

Weighing these vs the Rab Guide or similar?
First, about warmth, from the helpful folks at Rab: 'The Icefall Gauntlet mainly has insulation in the palm and back of the hand and has a slimmer profile through the fingers that will provide more dexterity.'
That matches what I found in comparing it to the Guide. The Icefall also has an adjustable wrist closure, but it's the slimmer fingers that make the biggest difference.
Fit: made for slim, long fingers like mine. My wrist is 8.5 inches in circumference, and from base of the palm to the end of the middle finger. That's on the line between M and L for Rab (and Marmot and BD). L is the way to go for all of them, but the easiest call for Rab: it's a perfect match. Only thing to know is that these are slim-cut gloves, and a snug fit even for my skinny hand. If you want more room, size up.
Hard to give a star rating without field testing (I went with the Guide for my use), but it seems such a solid glove and I wanted to share the fit info, in case it helps anyone with hands like mine.

Responded on

I am also considering both Guide and Icefall gloves. Judging by description Icefall should be warmer (Primaloft vs Microfleece). You review seems to indicate that Icefall are not as well insulated in fingers. Not sure which ones would be warmer of my purpose (downhill skiing).
