To celebrate the launch of their new range of climbing gloves, Mountain Equipment has teamed up with UKC to offer you the chance to win a pair of Super Couloir Gloves, worth £125.00.
For winter climbers and mountaineers gloves are critical equipment, the source of endless debate and sometimes even the difference between success and failure. Few pieces of kit affect your comfort, confidence and security as much.
Before we embarked on the year-long research and development project to redesign our glove range we used all the expertise at our disposal, our own Pro Partners and staff as well as some of the most experienced Guides and Instructors around, people who've been through literally hundreds of pairs of gloves in the search for the perfect option.
After extensive testing and prototyping what emerged were completely new fit blocks, new construction techniques and new fabrics, each bringing demonstrable improvements in performance.
One of the stars of the new range is the Super Couloir, already receiving rave reviews from our test team they've been used and abused on new routes, big repeats and desperate retreats everywhere from Scotland to Alaska and the Himalaya.
If you want a rock solid waterproof winter climbing glove that's unbelievably dextrous, very tough, and warm, then this is it. The new Climbing fit is outstanding, the thumb construction innovative and the aggressive pre-curve in the fingers reduces fatigue on the steepest ground. A Pittards® Armortan® Goatskin leather palm gives the ultimate softness, dexterity, and durability whilst zoned insulation balances warmth against feel.
