Splitter Work Gloves - New
Built for the four-season climber, the Splitter Work Gloves are the cold-weather ideation of the much-loved Splitter Glove. Infused with an extremely tactile back-of-hand grip, the Splitter Work Gloves are the supple, durable choice for cold-weather climbing on big, exposed walls where you're subject to Mother Nature's wrath. With an all-over goat leather construction and suede palm overlays, these gloves work just as hard as you to secure grip and tactility without weighing you down. Belaying, rappelling, or warding off cold while scouting your route - the Splitter Work Gloves will be the first thing you pack on your next multi-pitch adventure. SRP £60.
Designed with climbing legend Hans Florine and tested on Yosemite's granite, the crack-climbing Splitter Gloves are cost-effective without compromising performance. The Splitters' design wraps durable synthetic suede around the hand, layers on knuckle-protecting, non-sip synthetic leather, and holds them securely in place with finger loops and a wrist attachment. SRP £45.
