Collecting every piece of gear takes a little time.
We think it's worth the wait.
Give us a moment to collect those options for you.
Crack gloves close around the wrist typically with a velcro-like strap which lays either on the inside of the wrist (the palm side) or the outside of the wrist (the back of the hand). Most gloves close on the inside of the wrist where the closure is more protected from coming undone while jamming, though some manufacturers choose to close on the back for a lower profile closure that is more comfortable against the softer inner arm.
This refers to the material or materials that make a crack glove body which contacts the hand as well as any additional material or materials added on the back of the glove to add friction and padding between your hand and the rock. Further technical specs on these materials can be found on the page for each product.
Every glove manufacturer sizes and fits their gloves differently. The main measurement used is taken around the relaxed dominant hand at the knuckles. We consider all manufacturers to make average sizes and call out the ones who make gloves at the far ends of the spectrum to help those with very small or very large hands. Refer to our fitting guide posted with each glove for more information.
Crack gloves are made with different types of cracks and rock in mind. Some manufacturers have begun building greater thumb protection into their designs which can be beneficial if you are climbing wider cracks where fist-jamming is common. We consider thumb coverage to completely cover the knuckle and at least part of the first digit of the thumb. If only part of the knuckle is covered it is considered partial.
Strap coverage refers to the wrist closure strap having a built-in place to stow once it is closed. This feature is included on some gloves to help avoid the strap being opened when you don’t want it to be.
If the manufacturer claims no animal products were used in the production of the product.
We do our very best to find and display every technical spec for every piece of climbing gear in the world. But sometimes we just can’t dig up a spec or two (usually it's the official price and weight). Sadly, this means not every product is available for filtering and sorting :(
If we allowed products that are missing key specs to display in the results above, these incomplete products would need to appear no matter what filters you chose. This would make the filtered results cluttered and misleading. So instead of leaving out these incomplete products entirely, we're listing them below:
