The Alpine Glove is a mid-weight glove, made using a high loft Polartec® Power Shield Pro® fabric and goat leather palm with Pittards® IGT (Innovative Grip Technology) palm reinforcement.
This high-grip palm gives a close and comfortable fit, and increases dexterity for technical climbing. The Polartec® Power Shield Pro® fabric blocks 98% of wind, whilst remaining highly breathable and water repellent, enabling you to use the Alpine Glove in cold and wet conditions.
The Alpine Glove has been designed specifically with dry tooling and mixed climbing in mind.
Rab Carrington built his company on two things: A deep understanding of what climbers and mountaineers need, and a commitment to practical gear that works.
Throughout much of the 1970’s Rab could be found on ground breaking expeditions around the world. From winter climbing in Scotland and the alps, to expeditions in the Himalaya, Rab gained first-hand experience and understanding what climbers need from their kit.
In 1981 the native Scotsman moved to Sheffield to set up Rab. By first deciding how gear should be used, then designing for that use, Rab was able to produce specialist down sleeping bags and jackets with fresh dimension suitable for high performance mountaineering gear, offering products better than any other available at the time.
Jump ahead over 25 years and Rab are still at the forefront of innovation and performance. From their super lightweight bivi bags to tough, waterproof and breathable eVent™ jackets, Rab have created some of the most hardwearing and specialist kit in the world. Rab are still to this day designed and produced within the UK, using the highest quality, lightweight materials to create award winning products; and are ceaselessly committed to Rab’s exacting standards, ingenuity and pioneering spirit.
