Rab Guide Gloves
January 10th, 2014
Two pairs of new gloves from Rab arrived today. Scottish winter climbing and mountaineering can be tough on hands and gloves so I’m very pleased to get hold of some of these warm and burly Guide Gloves.
I had a pair of an older design a couple of years ago and they soon became my favourite gloves, they were very durable and supple, good for holding a ice-axe and handling ropes. Rab have now updated the design. They are warmer with a longer cuff and now have detachable wrist leashes. Rab describe then as a waterproof eVent 3 layer stretch soft-shell glove with Pittards Armortan leather palm with leather reinforcement on cuff, back of hand and over critical seams. the great thing about leather gloves is that they will mould to fit the shape of your hand.
