These offer a synthetic palm surface different than any other we tested. It is thick and durable and great at minimizing heat transfer to your hand. It is also a little slippery and bulky when handling biners. It is one of the least expensive gloves we tested. For a full-fingered version of this glove, check out the CAMP Light Synthetic Glove.
These are good gloves if you are on a budget and want a light rappel glove. They are good for multi-pitch climbs where you don't plan to use them to belay. They are incredibly durable but do not have nearly the dexterity of the PMI Fingerless Glove, which is $10 more, or the Black Diamond Stone Glove, which is $15 more. Both of those gloves give you much more confidence when belaying or handling carabiners on lead but are not nearly as durable or ideal for rappelling.
