    Glovin' em!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Super nice leather that'll form nicely to the hand. nice nylon panel for breathability and stretch. Plenty of thickness but maintains sensitivity. Great for long belay days or endless jugging.


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

    I dig these. I haven't gotten a ton of use out of them yet, but I have good initial impressions . They fit my hands well, and they're comfortable.

    Right and left don't match

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    This is the second pair I've tried where one side is smaller than the other (both times the right was too tight). I kept the first pair. My hands measure the same and a buddy tried them on and agreed. Thought the first pair would stretch out with use but not enough after 3 months. I like the build quality but had to return the second pair. Seems like a quality control issue imo.

    Decent, but don't fit that well for me

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I can imagine these work great for some people, but it just seems to be too tight in the wrong places - they make my hands tired wearing them for too long. On the plus side, they are quite durable, and I like having holes in the straps to clip to something

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Using these everyday at the gym I work at was supposed to destroy these gloves in about six months. They have lasted me almost two years with only slight damage to the velcro. I have full dexterity and am able to completely rig complex systems like 6:1's and Double C's in the same amount of time as someone not wearing gloves. Long story short, I no longer call them gloves. I call them Old Faithful Left and Old Faithful Right.
