Rab Alpine Glove Description
Brand : Rab
Season : AW16
Code : 5010576
The Rab Alpine Glove is a light yet well protected and comfortable softshell glove that is designed at mountaineers and climbers heading out to alpine routes or staying in the UK and climbing with ice tools.
Made from Polartec Power Shield Pro fabric with a hi-loft lining, the Alpine Gloves are naturally warm as well as very weather resistant, making them perfect for intense activity in the cold weather. The use of goat skin leather on the palm provides a really grippy feel and is more durable than a similar silicon or rubber grip, while the wrap around design reduces seam wear and provides better performance.
The cuff of the Rab Alpine Glove is cut fairly long which offers extra protection when inserted under your sleeves, but is also quite low bulk - especially when you use the velcro closure. The gloves have also been designed to have an angled cuff which ergonimically allows a greater freedom of wrist movement - perfect for climbing with axes.
