    Nice belay - cold day craggin' gloves

    Familiarity:
    I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

    These XS size gloves fit my 13 year old son very well. Nicely made and overbuilt like BD always does.

    The only gloves you need

    Familiarity:
    I've put it through the wringer

    I love these gloves. Cheap and they perform well. The textured leather palm allows for good control of the rope and makes for quick rope handling. I love the thin, ventilated fabric on the back that allows my hands to breath. Still on my first pair (~2 years of regular use). I will definitely buy these again when/if mine wear out.

    Great belaying glove

    Second pair I've purchase, though the first pair was without the finger tips. The Price is great. True to size. I've used my first pair for over a year and they haven't worn through a bit. I love the velcro wrist closure. Doesn't rub on my wrist at all. I also like the clip in loop to put them on a carabiner on my harness when I'm not using them.

    Love em so far!

    Familiarity:
    I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    I've only used these a few times. I think they are great! Especially for the price point. I'm a small person so they make lowering with a grigri way more comfortable. I probably could have sized up into the smalls - since its unisex sizing I went with the extra smalls. They're fine! Just a little tight - we'll see if they stretch out!

    So Great!

    Familiarity:
    I've used it several times

    These gloves are awesome! I am lighter than everyone I climb with. So when I belay them I have to light my hands on fire when I lower them. These gloves have made a huge difference. I can let people down nice and easy and keep my hands from rope burn.

    Good Gloves for Belaying

    I've put it through the wringer

    I got these gloves for belaying while sport climbing and they work great! They fit true to size for me I usually wear a size small in glove and purchased a size small and they fit perfect.

    Good gloves

    Keep cool in the heat but fit smaller than recommended size. Tough material and overall good crag gloves.

    As I stood looking down the 1000ft wall I was going to have to descend, I was comfortable with my choice of belay gloves. 5, 200 foot, free hanging rappels later saw me standing on terra firma yet again. And thanks to my Crag belay gloves I was safely able to control the rope without melting all my skin off. Big fan.

    Beat em, buy em, rinse and repeat.

    Love these gloves- make my canyoneering trips that much more enjoyable because I'm not grating my skin on sandstone all day! Not only are they pretty durable for a $20 dollar glove- but I wear mine walking my dog and they provide enough warmth, and also breath just barely well enough (sometimes) in hotter weather. Beat 'em up, buy yourself a new pair, and then do it again.

    Good Gloves

    Familiarity:
    I've used it several times

    I don't wear gloves too often to belay and rappel but these have been great! Especially if you don't do the best job of keeping your rope clean of dirt and desert cacti.

    Comfy glove

    Familiarity:
    I've used it several times

    I like the XS size for a good women's fit, better than other unisex gloves. And as the other reviews say, the glove is light, dries fast, holds up a bit longer than most in its price range. Great for canyoneering.

    Thick but a bit clunky

    These gloves are great for belaying. They do feel a bit clunky when lead belaying with an grigri or another assisted belay device, but will keep your hands protected when necessary.

    Great for the Price!!

    Familiarity:
    I've put it through the wringer

    I use these as a basic belay glove, nothing more than that. They have stood up to plenty of use so far. These aren't anything fancy a basic fabric that is built similar to a work glove from Home Depot. I am usually a medium, but for BD gloves I've bumped up to a large which fit great. Definitely love these more than my $50 pair of leather ones I've bought in the past. Would buy again for sure!

    You get what you pay for

    Familiarity:
    I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    Seemed nice until the second time I used them, when the seam on the back of the hand blew completely open (between the snot rag / thumb patch and the main colored piece). That seam doesn't even get any wear…shoddy sewing, but they are only $20. You get what you pay for. I'm returning my pair for something that will actually last.

    Great for Canyoneering

    Familiarity:
    I've put it through the wringer

    I have been searching for the perfect canyoneering glove for months now. The BD Crag glove is it! This glove has a sturdy leather palm and fingers. The backside is a lightweight fabric. These gloves grip well when wet. They do not hold water and they dry quickly. Perfect for your approach, as well as rappelling and belaying. I highly recommend these gloves and for the price you can't go wrong.

    Does this glove have any water proof...

    Does this glove have any water proof properties?

    This glove doesn't have any water proof properties. I forgot my regular snow gloves last spring and put these on instead. They were soaked in just a couple of minutes. Check out the Black Diamond Dirt Bag Glove. A minimal glove that will keep you dry for the most part.

    what is the difference between this glove...

    what is the difference between this glove (http://www.backcountry.com/black-diamond-crag-climbing-glove) and this one (http://www.backcountry.com/black-diamond-crag-climbing-glove-bld1268)? The only difference that I see is in price. Can someone clarify this for me? Thank in advance. -Clark

    Last year's model, that's about it.
