Crag Half-Finger Gloves is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from uncomfortable They are really uncomfortable around the fingers. I bought these for my 7 year old boy for ziplining and climbing, but he didn't have them on for a full 3 seconds before he ripped them off because they were extremely uncomfortable. I tried them on to see what he was talking about, and sure enough, they were so uncomfortable around the fingers that I wouldn't want to wear them either. The interiors on the half-digits are coarse, and in my opinion, too tight and not cut well. I bought an XS, but am returning (my ring size for my dominant hand middle finger is 7, width 7 inches; and my son's hand is, well, a lot smaller than mine). I would have rated these gloves lower except for the fact that we hadn't tested their durability during belaying or climbing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable and remarkably well-designed I finally had a great opportunity to take these outside on a nice cold morning so I could see how they held up. tl;dr: great gloves. They're very comfortable on the inside, with no issues with lumpy seams or stitching, but with enough padding I could really slide the rope through my hands while lowering on belay without even a touch of discomfort. The half-finger is really nice - the first route of the morning was cold and crimpy so I left 'em on for the first few bolts, and took 'em off partway up where it got more slopey and i wanted to use my full hand. Biner hole is well-placed, and the little flaps on the fingers to make them easier to take off were a huge help while halfway up the wall.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Life changing I've had these belay gloves since May 2017. They are the best I've ever used. The half-finger feature is key. I find full finger belay gloves to be hard to deal with. They are breathable, durable and lightweight. I use Dr. Bronner's to hand wash them and let them air dry. Best belay gloves ever!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great glove I have mainly used these gloves hanging from a rope and wire brushing moss off a area I'm developing. They are a super comfortable glove even when wearing them for hours on end. Great for jugging up the rope.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Super Comfy I really enjoyed these gloves. I wore them for the 12 & 24 Hours of HorseshoeHell. They saved my skin, but I trashed the gloves!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Fingers are too short, decent built I wish I purchased the full finger variant of these gloves. I bought these on the advice of my climbing mentor for when we rap down to the base of a climb for the day after we set up our top rope. They do leave my fingers partially exposed to the rope still. The quality themselves aren't bad however.... I see myself buying full fingers in the near future.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Cave Diving Gloves OK. So, I know cave diving isn't the use most people have in mind for these gloves. But, I will tell you that diving in high flow caves in Florida frequently resembles climbing. A diver's primary means of propulsion is known as pull-and-glide. There is often more pull than glide - like pulling yourself into a firehose. The combination of frequent rock contact and saturated wet glove materials make most full-fingered gloves good for 1 or 2 dives before the fingers rip. Half-finger gloves last longer and help develop technique, training divers to stop using their soft, wet fingertips for propulsion and use their palms instead. Even with good technique, gloves don't last. These gloves have been the best I have found. I've had pairs last about 15-20 dives before the palm rips, a strong testament to the material quality. I'd love it if Black Diamond created a Florida Cave Diving Glove with materials specifically suited for hand protection in wet conditions. Until then, these are the best I've found.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great glove for Canyoneering We have been using these gloves for canyoneering around Utah. Good protection for rope work and long rappels. I also like the extra padding on the knuckles when scrambling and down climbing obstacles. Work well when wet too.
