A no-compromise glove for serious mountain use.
Naturally, there's an eVent membrane to keep the heat-sapping wet at bay, but the Icefall protects against more than just the damp.
Primaloft takes care of the insulation, while Pittards Armotan leather (with Innovative Grip Technology reinforcements) means the palm stands up to the constant swing of ice-tools and the cranking in of screws...but to be extra-certain they're up to the job, critical seams are reinforced with leather patches.
When you need to take them off to fiddle with your ropework, wrist leashes ensure they don't tumble back down the gully. Well, you wouldn't want to lose a glove this good, would you?

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.
