Outdoor Research's Chroma Full Sun Gloves are superb for using trekking poles in hot climates. Unless you rigorously apply sun lotion to the back of your hands they are vulnerable to the sun when using trekking poles, which leave the backs of the hands exposed. On multi-day treks applying sun lotion can be a bit of a bind and many people prefer wearing gloves.
With a thin synthetic leather vented palm these gloves are designed for this purpose, being thin they are quite cool and there's an extra bit of reinforcement between the thumb and forefinger. These are called 'Full' because they have complete fingers for 100% protection. Some may prefer (me included) the fingerless version.
