PMI's Rope Tech Gloves are extremely versatile. They offer far better dexterity than PMI rappel gloves for tending a Z-Rig or tying knots. 2 layers of goat skin and a 1 layer synthetic leather palm with spandex and air mesh for breathability. If your primary use will be for rappelling, we reccommend Lightweight or Heavyweight leather gloves. Color: Black . Weight 10.5 oz. (299 g). Made outside the U.S.A.
