The belt is difficult to tighten. But that's because of the emphasis on fitting. Overall rating is good.
Very nice equipment for cracks, very useful and with nice grip
毎回テープを巻く必要もなく、痛みも軽減されハンドジャムがよく効くのには驚かされた。テープの購入よりも一度購入すれば長く使えるので安上がりだし、これ無しではクラッククライミングはしたくないと思うほど最高のCrack Glovesです。Incredibly good！
Those gloves are one of those mission specific pieces of gear. To be honest, I don't climb cracks that often nor I am that good when climbing them, but those gloves are life savers in those situations. I tried taping before and it was a really painful experience and it was not because of the hand jamming, but because of tape removal which was also pulling lots of hair. Same sensation like depilation in the cosmetic saloon. Maybe there are some pros at using tape over those gloves, but for me and my level it is Ocun gloves>>>>tape.
I had an earlier model of these and used them regularly on gritstone and in Yosemite. when replacing them with this model I was pleased to see that all the modifications where exactly what I would have wanted if I had been involved in designing them. I shall always have them in my climbing bag.
