/ M.E Assualt glove
Any feedback would be awesome!
Take this with a large pinch of salt. I haven't used a pair of Assualts but I have tried on and played around with a prototype pair.
ME's gloves are generally excellent with good build quality and well thought out designs. They are pretty good value too.
The Assualts are a lightly insulated, dextorous gauntlet with a gore-tex lining. They'll be excellent for winter alpine/icefall climbing.
I'd definatley use a pair, but I'm not sure If I'd pay £80 for pair.
They are probably slightly better than ME's excellent guide gloves: http://www.needlesports.com/Catalogue/Technical-Clothing/Hands/Waterproof-Gloves-Mitts/Mens-Guide-Gl...
But I bet there aren't £35 better. I'd get them instead and spend the extra £35 on going climbing!
I already own two pairs of guides which I rate but looking for something a bit better to climb in.
Cheers for the reply!
If I had 2 pairs of guide gloves, that weren't kanckered I don't think I'd both buying any gloves at all...
What do you find poor about the guides for climbing?
Glove preferences for Scottish Winter:
Walk-In – Powerstretch Fleece
General Climbing – ME Randonee
Hard Mixed – ME Super Alpine
Belay/Back-Up – Mercury Mitts
I’ve not tried the Assault but can’t see them swaying me from my current system.
I've had a pair of stretch mountains as well, thought they were really good gloves all of one days use before realising they were too small and selling them on.
And get them even cheaper with your McoS discount
