For ice climbing I believe?
Just been looking at the new ME gloves and noticed that they had the same elastic loop on the outside of the middle finger of each hand like on my BD gloves only slanted. Does anyone know what use they are? I believe it is a feature for ice climbing but am not sure. No-one I know has any ideas since not real iceclimbing mountaineers but more like winter hill walkers with good, over specced gear.
Wow! Good thinking. Now just need to feed some dyneema through my sleeves and over my shoulder then attach to the eleastic. Then I'll look like I did when I was 4 with gloves hanging on thread!
Can confirm that is what it is used for,as i have asked the very same question on OM myself
HERE!! And if you notice im the one that posts the most on it ,well one can not know everything .
You might have heard of Zalando, but I bet you didn’t know Europe's number one fashion destination now has a dedicated sports and outdoors shop?
It’s not all hill walking and Kendal mint cake
