Best climbing gloves I've ever used
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I got these gloves to replace my BD punishers for a trip down to Patagonia this season. Needless to say everything about these gloves blew me away and they quickly became my favorite and most reliable piece of kit. During the trip we attempted Exocet but because of 90 km/hr winds and crazy amounts of spindrift bailed 2 1/2 pitches up the chimney. While we were rapping every single layer on me got completely drenched (including my $400 Arcteryx hardshell) as the chimney melted out on top of us during the heat of the day...but the luminary sensor gloves kept my hands warm and and dry throughout the 26 hour ordeal. Seriously if you are looking for a glove for alpine climbing... I can't recommend this one enough. It is super warm, basically waterproof, and incredibly dextrous for how warm it is. I had no problem following the steeper pitches on Exocet and also handling the many rappels down back to the glacier. The only thing I would't recommend these gloves for would be for leading on steep ice but for everything else they are awesome!
