Rated 2 out of 5 by from Poor Grade Leather I honestly love these gloves, I have small hands and they fit me quite well and they are great for the range of weather I climb in. My beef is the leather is way to thin, I have tried to reserve them for only climbing and limit for rappelling even to limit the wear on the leather, The extra padding in nice in the web, however the fingers blow out first, I stich them, and then the leather thins out quickly. I usually burn through a pair a season. Perhaps with a better/thicker leather I will promote them better, otherwise Im looking around next year.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite climbing gloves so far Over the years I've bought quite a few ice-specific gloves. I was usually happy, but never really felt the price was justified. So far, these are the least expensive and the only gloves I feel 100% satisfied with. So far this season, I haven't thought about my hands being cold once, and the grip is right-on. I work for an outdoor retailer and can confidently recommend these gloves with no caveats.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Ice Climbing Glove This is my third pair of Punisher Gloves. I have found them to be warm and well fitting. I have used them on up to WI5/M7 and found the dexterity to be supurb.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from All seasons ice glove I purchased 2 pairs of these about 6 years ago, and have been using every since. For me the Punishers are the best compromise of warmth, water and wind resistance, durability, and dexterity. I've used these into the coldest conditions in which I'd want to be climbing. I've tried many heavier gloves, but the added bulk generally means I might as well be wearing mittens. In the Punishers I can handle gear, tie knots, etc. For very cold days I wear different gloves on the approach, warming the Punishers in my clothes before climbing, and swapping on other gloves at the belays so I can warm the Punishers in my clothes for the next pitch(es). Seems to work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from warmth and dexterity I climbed a WI5 yesterday and my hands stayed warm and I also had enough dexterity to facilitate a V-thread rap anchor without ever taking them off. A beautiful product! Will it last?...stay tuned, only time will tell!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Glove: Wears out rather quick I bought these gloves about a year and a half ago and they are excellent gloves. I use them for ice climbing as well as my cold weather gloves for Search and Rescue. Overall great amount of warmth to dexterity ratio. My main complaint with these is that they have worn out a little quicker than I was hoping, as well as stretched out over time.
