When you're hanging onto a frozen waterfall by a couple of pieces of metal, you want all the grip and comfortable dexterity you can get. The Outdoor Research Alpine Alibi II Glove is purpose built for ice climbing and doesn't compromise anything in the pursuit. For weather protection it has a waterproof, breathable Gore Tex insert with X trafit technology and a nylon stretch soft shell exterior. Pittards Oiltac goat leather palm and fingers provide supple, durable grip. Inside this bomber glove is efficient, toasty warm PrimaLoft One fleece insulation and a wool palm lining. An internal gusset increases mobility, and SuperCinch gauntlet seals out the elements. There's a removable Idiot Cord for added security when you're feeling less sharp. A climbing glove isn't a climbing glove unless it has more than comfy weather protection. This glove has a carabiner loop, nose wipe, gel padding on outside edge, foam panels on back, and precurved construction for added mobility. Protection, comfort, fit, and dexterity this glove makes no compromise.
