Everyone should give climbing gloves a hand, right after they are finished with laughing at my clever pun. Increased durability and warmth, as well as improved grip and unique style are all reasons why climbing gloves are awesome for adventurers.
Climbing gloves help you hold onto things better, and besides being great for climbing they have a multitude of other purposes. A fair number of stories would have gone differently if the characters had the foresight to bring along a pair of climbing gloves. Gandalf might not have had to fall in the mines of Moria, Jack might not have let go of Rose in Titanic. Personally, I think that a well timed pair of climbing gloves may explain why Sherlock Holmes didn’t follow Moriarty to his death at Reichenbach falls.
If you are planning any kind of climbing expedition gloves are a must-have. Because you aren’t going to be able to engage in a duel with a mountain if you don’t have the gloves to get it started.
