Why We Like the Crack Climbing Glove

Black Diamond's Crack Climbing Glove gives greater protection when you're hand-jamming splitters and cracks whether it's in the desert or the alpine. Strong, breathable, synthetic suede leather in a 3D pattern provides a next-to-skin fit and crack-specific dexterity. Black Diamond instilled a rubber adhesive seamlessly to the back of the hand for greater protection and grip that doesn't interfere with dexterity or discomfort. Unlike the competition, Black Diamond's Crack Climbing Glove comes in a white color to reduce heat from the desert sun.

Best crack gloves

Best crack gloves on the market, second only to tape! The part that attaches to your wrists has a tendency to weaken over time, but you can just wrap it with some tape when it wears out. The thumb is the best in the market as well, allows you to climb fists & offwidth very well.

Excellent Gloves

Durability: Have had my current pair for 1.5yrs and climb outdoors 3-5x a week - they have lasted thru it all! For fit: If you're in between sizes, I'd go down. They stretch a small amount with time and sweat.

Fits like a glove

You don'y have to tape up if you don't want to. These crack gloves make it easy to climb pitch after pitch of anything from smooth sandstone to sharp cracks of conglomerate. Sent from the future, these gloves can be easily put on/off, have great form fitting, skin protection guarantee and won't let you slip out of your favorite crack. Look no further, these bad bad boys get the job done.

Great gloves - love that they’re white so your hands don’t get cooked in them from the sun. Useful to reinforce around the fingers with tape if you’re jamming in stuff where these areas are going to get a bit of abuse as they do tear up here if you’re not careful. I bought the XL after trying a buddies. The size chart recommended a L for my hand size - but my fat knuckles found the XL tight for getting the gloves on and off so I’m pleased I went with the XL. Even with thin wrists the XL can be tightened enough to give a good secure fit.

Love em!

I’ve always preferred tape to crack gloves until trying these! They are thin enough not to get in the way, but do a great job of protecting your hands.

Crack Gloves

They are as thin as it can be. They only are going to protect your skin. The good thing is that you keep a good feeling on the rock but don't expect for cushoning pain free gloves.

Still need to tape...

New crack gloves: The feel very soft and comfortable. For the size, I think they run small compared to the 'OR' crack gloves. I wish they extended farther along my wrist so I didn't need to tape my wrists.
