Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product, but sizing was wrong Great product. Feels bomber while belaying and rappelling. Very happy with the product except for sizing. I was right on the line between a small and a medium. I chose to go with the small and I regret it. Luckily it fits my gf's hands perfectly and I ordered a medium for myself.,,,,Only dislike...It took a long time to soften up and get comfortable. I used a baseball glove trick of wrapping it up tight with rubber bands.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from These gloves are the shiizznitz. Bought these for my fiance so she can belay me and other friends with ease. She doesn't complain about her hands turning black or burning when letting me down from the climb anymore. She loves the being able to use the tips of her fingers because she feels more comfortable feeling the rope and gri-gri when she is belaying. The hooks on the gloves are also excellent for clipping the gloves onto a draw so you can use it to belay down to clean the route you're using. She says her hands don't hurt anymore when she rappels down.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The quality is worth the price I prefer using fingerless gloves when belaying/rappelling. I feel like I have more control of the rope and dont run the risk of rope burn, I also prefer the functionality of fingerless. I would use framers or weightlifting gloves, but would wear through a couple pairs a season. I broke down and spent the extra cash on these puppies and could not be happier. The materials are thick and durable and will take more beatings then my cheaper substitutes. Overall it is well worth the price to have a good durable pair of gloves.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from it saved my hands I worked at a adventure park this summer as a climbing instructor and there would be those days where I would belay 200-300 people and with out this glove the rope would probably would have burned through my hand by the of the day. Even better they held up all summer long and i will still have much more life out of them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WAY BETTER THAN EXPECTED I bought these about about a month ago. I'm a climbing instructor, and this is the best gear purchase I've made. They're 100% leather. they're soft, but extremely durable and comfortable. I bought a small worried they might not fit, but they fit just fine. Love these!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Thank god for sales! Thanks Moosejaw. As a stagehand at the Metropolitan Opera in New York City, my hands get quite a workout. Whether it's hauling 4,00-watt projectors up narrow staircases to annoyingly small lighting positions for "Carmen," scaling the set to hang a string of carnival lamps for "Faust" or rolling away the blisteringly hot cyclorama lights of (fill in the name of almost any opera you know), my Metolious gloves are indespensible hand-savers. I've been going through a pair per season.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Works great as a belay glove and for rappel, but stitching edges need to be smooth I really like Metolius products, but feel like this particular product had some bad stitching on the pinky finger of the gloves. The seam on the gloves just cut into the skin on my last finger during heavy use. I would not recommend this glove to anyone who has small hands. I have several climbing friends with bigger hands that really like the product, so it is probably just a sizing issue. Make sure to try the product on before buying.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Burly enough for big walls or a day at the crag! I've used these gloves for a few years now interspersed with a few others' (Petzl, PMI, & BD). -------------------- They have the longest break in time for certain and you will want to get a pair you think are going to fit snugly, as they will get larger and morph like any leather glove. I have pretty small sausagey hands, so the small pair is what I struggled with for a few weeks before they broke in (~7-10 pitches worth of wall climbing practice?). -------------------- I originally got them for big walls in Yosemite, and have taken the same pair up several. Though after using them for just about everything, I am hooked. They work great as belay/rappel gloves in dry conditions and the dexterity they offer by exposing the fingers is essential yet still protective enough. Like any leather product, they get a bit slippery and absorptive when wet...I've taken them down several canyons in Zion and elsewhere, but I still use them because they're burly and I don't feel unsafe when they do get wet. I might be a bit concerned belaying a leader if they were wet...dry they are killer belay gloves. I've even used them for woodworking and moving big, heavy things. -------------------- My pair has holes on all sides and needs to be replaced, but that was after (literally) miles of aid climbing, and more miles descending routes or canyoneering. I beat the tar out of them and they never cracked or anything like that. The holes are from rope friction, but even after all that I still don't burn my hands on fast rappels. The stitching resisted coming undone until the very last threads were worn down by friction... -------------------- P.S. They will start to smell on you if you're not careful. I wasn't careful. But hey, at least no one else will want to take them from you when you rave about how awesome they are. -------------------- TLDR: Excellent all around protective climbing glove. Longer break in worth it. Super burly, super comfy.
