climbing shoes for your hands
Hand Jammies feel a lot less intuitive/sensitive than tape gloves, but they do serve a few purposes.
I think that they're pretty convenient in the gym because they offer the same level of protection as tape, but without the hassle of taping up. The sticky rubber on the back of the hand really helps make even pretty poor jams feel really solid - the jammies sort of feel like climbing shoes for your hands.
*They will make your hands feel about a size bigger than they feel with tape gloves, so if you're hanging on something that is a little looser than your hand size, throw on the jammies, you'll cruise.
Serves a purpose
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I'm easing my way into crack climbing, by way of the gym. These work well for my current needs. I usually just run a couple laps at the end of a session. It beats taping up each time.
Great for the gym
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
I hate having to tape up for the gym and this solves that problem. Feels great but expect to have less room in the cracks as its a lot thicker than even a few wraps of tape. My only complaint is it makes my palm too wide with the strap. However, expect different results with different sized cracks.
