When ice or mixed routes call for extreme dexterity without sacrificing protection, climbers look to the Warrant Gloves from Outdoor Research Weather-resistant stretch soft shell fabric provides a secure, comfortable fit, while a waterproof/breathable GORE-TEX® insert combined with PrimaLoft® insulation keeps your hands warm and dry while also moving perspiration away from the skin. A Pittards® Armortan® leather palm ensures a firm gip on your tools even while wet, and articulated, compression-molded padding protects your digits from impact.

Warmth and dexterity
January 28, 2013
Kind of expensive and garish colors, but warm. I still use thinner climbing gloves for leading at my limit, but these seem to work for just about everything else.
The waterproofing seems to work well; rapping on wet ropes wets out the leather but my hands stayed dry. The velcro is beefy and keeps the fit snug.
