Why We Like The Outdoor Research Granite Glove

Carefully crafted, the Outdoor Research Granite Glove is a no-brainer for those in search of a full-grain leather belay and rappel glove. The Granite has a highly dexterous design to give us the natural movement and fingerwork we want when spending long hours on steep granite. Plus, we appreciate that the durable goat leather palm with split suede overlays makes rope burn a distant memory.

Not Durable and fit like skinny jeans for your hands.

I don't have big meaty claws but these gloves seem to fit pretty snugly. I wear a medium glove, but sized up to a large and they still felt very tight around my fingers. I planned to use these for wildland firefighting since we are required to use full leather gloves, but one of the fingers ripped open after swamping juniper branches for not even 10 minutes! Incredibly frustrating given the price point. If you are using these for belaying (and have skinny skinny fingers) I'm sure they're great, but don't make the mistake I did and try to repurpose these as a work glove. They cannot hack it.

Awesome Belay Gloves!

I got these to replace a worn out pair of BEAL gloves that I've had for ten years. These have performed great so far. I can move easily between climbing and belaying and ensure I don't trash my hands before a climb! They fit a bit smaller than expected across the palm but are flexible enough to work well for me!
