The fingerless design of these PMI gloves provides just enough coverage to protect your hands, yet still allows excellent dexterity. Designed especially for rappelling and belaying, these gloves are supple and durable. Protective layer of extra-tough cowhide across the palms adds durability and protection from rope friction. Lightweight goatskin gives excellent dexterity, allowing you to maintain good rope control. Clever pull tab between fingers makes removal easy.
