Gloves

Recommended Posts

My BD drytool gloves have finally given up the ghost. Very sad indeed as they were superb for climbing.

 

Any recommendations for something similar that doesn’t break the bank? Tough enough for the occasional jaggy, light enough for rope handling, but not so light that it gets overly friendly with a zigzag…

 

Cheers in advance.

Showa 310, look like other gloves but much harder wearing.

 

Toolstation are good for a pair if you just want to try but they've put them up to £4. You can get them online for £3, wouldn't recommend gloves'n'stuff (look at their Trustpilot) but recently used mstore and they've been good.

Thanks, they look pretty good. I’ll give them a go. And thanks for the tips re sellers.

I still like Pfanner fine grip although I think the quality has dropped in the last year or so....

try wondergrip u-feel. similar and not too bad

arbortecs version isnt bad but seems to vary in fit from pair to pair in the same size.
