    Avoid rope burn and blackened and mangled hands when you wear the Outdoor Research Men's Air Brake Gloves. These breathable, stretchy, ultra-tactile gloves protect your paws from a dirty rope while you belay your partner and keep your hands warm and comfortable on big walls during chilly afternoons.

    • Polyester and spandex fabric blend provides breathable comfort, stretch, and warmth while you belay your partner on big walls or at the crag
    • Durable split-suede overlays and KEVLAR stitching in areas of high abrasion for longevity
    • Gel palm pockets absorb and dissipate heat caused by friction created during heavy rope-work or long via ferrata routes
    • Back vents on the back of the fingertips allow perspiration to escape while maintaining total-hand protection
    • Hook-and-loop wrist closures for a comfortable, secure fit
    • Carabiner loops help ensure you don't drop the Air Brakes high up on a ledge
    • Item #ODR1120

    amazing glove

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size

    I run these daily. (Mine are the tan ones for LE/MIL, but same otherwise) Hands down, the best gloves I have ever run. Durable, tactile, and they fit GREAT!

    They do well for belay, running pistol and ARs, and general protection of your hands from the normal cuts and scrapes.

    Can't belay without them!

    Call me spoiled but I really don't like belaying without these gloves! They make rope management super silky, and lowering is nice and smooth. They save my hands from all the aluminum dust and they making long raps so much more comfortable.

    They fit *extremely* well and I don't feel clumsy with them on. They breathe very well and I think the gel packs are in the perfect spot!

    They also make me feel operator as hell.


    Cadillac of belay gloves

      By far the cushiest, most teched out, nicest pair of belay gloves that have ever graced my beaten and abused climber hands. Not much more to say but I will repost on durability down the road.
