Ice climbing is a delicate, precision-driven sport, and the gear that goes along with it needs to be built in the same way. That's exactly how Outdoor Research have developed the new BitterBlaze Gloves, designed to deliver the dexterity, durability, and warmth that ice and mixed climbers demand. This groundbreaking glove pair uses the waterproof trustworthiness of GORE-TEX®, the resilience of Pittards® Oiltac goat leather, and the revolutionary warmth of PrimaLoft® Aerogel insulation used in NASA space travel. This compression-resistant thermal barrier is patterned over the palm and fingers of each glove, with multiple panels that allow retention of grip and freedom of movement. Each customised Aerogel insert reduces heat loss from freezing cold elements, like ice, rock, tools, and rope, allowing you total focus on the task at hand. Detailed down to the very last seam, the BitterBlaze Gloves also include a carabiner loop for easy storage, pull-on loop for no-fuss application, an elasticised wrist for further range of motion, and hook and loop wrist closures to trap in heat and fasten gloves securely.

Uneven sized fingers. Not warm at zero degrees

One of the thumbs is smaller than the other, too small for my thumb and I have very small hands. I wore these mountain biking in zero degree Celsius weather. Although my palms stayed warm my fingertips became cold and didn’t warm up until I had been cycling for half an hour. I am not looking forward to testing these in sub-zero temperatures.

Warm sensitive gloves for ice climbing

Extremely warm gloves. Do not use if not enough cold ;) Your hands will sweat, if not. The thermal layer at the palm is present but it does not make your grip numb. Excellent gloves. Durability remais to bee seen.
