The Talon Glove is a new eVent waterproof stretch glove featuring PrimaLoft insulation, designed primarily for technical alpine climbing.

Rab says:

When you are moving up steep mixed ground through spindrift, dexterity as well as protection for the hands is required to inspire confidence.

The Talon Glove carefully balances both these attributes; designed using a tough, lightweight and stretch Matrix fabric with a fully waterproof eVent insert, and including a leather palm and grippers, these gloves are optimised for wielding your axes in mixed, changeable environments.

|eVent Waterproof Fabrics use Direct Venting Technology - a proprietary and patented waterproof membrane allows millions of tiny pores to breathe at their full potential. Sweat vents directly to the outside of the fabric in one easy step. Click Logo to read more..

Rab's Talon eVent Gloves have been primarily designed for alpine climbing. The PrimaLoft insulation will keep your hands warm while the eVent insert will keep them dry. Exactly what you need when battling up chimneys in sub zero temperatures.

The leather palsm and grip reinforcement offer excellent grip for wielding ice tools, carabiners and other gear that gets slippery when wet. I particularly like that they keep the usual fabric on the back of the thumb for the occasional nose wipe. Sou Sounds disgusting but you know we all need it.

The velcro cuff closure is low bulk so doesn't snag on clothing, however it can be a little tricky to open when wearing the gloves. Something that might become easier over time.

Not fully waterproof :(

Whilst the glove is called waterproof and there is an event insert, i'm not sure that the whole glove is waterproof as such, I used these on a very wet 4 hour bike ride and my hands were definitely wet and the gloves where soaked through by the end. They did however keep my hands reasonably warm. Can't give 5 stars or even 4 due to not being waterproof. I would have expected more for £85 gloves.
