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

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.
