- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Got them for ice climbing and mountaineering. Simply do what they’re supposed to do. Tough leather outside for rope handling, warm enough inside. Sit nicely over the jacket and easy to tighten/loosen with the other glove on.
Hang nicely from the finger loop for drying. Did well ice climbing in California and as well at -20 Fahrenheit and 40mph winds at 17500 feet in South America. Could have been a bit more dexterous for knot tying, but still a solid 5 star. Fit is true to size.
The Randonee Gauntlets are my first choice for skiing as well as alpine and ice climbing. They've got a full leather palm that's super tough for rope handling and gives great grip on leashless tools. Soft shell fabric and a full pile lining means they dry fast and stay warm even when damp so they're great for expedition use where a fully waterproof glove can be hard to dry out once it's soaked. These in conjunction with a thin pair of gloves for the hardest pitches or warmer parts of the day are the system I use most of the time.
