The Climatec gloves are quite thin and have no padding, but whatever the conditions they claim to offer a lot of grip and they do too.
MacWet say their proprietary fabric increases grip as the gloves absorb moisture, we were pleasantly surprised when they did just that, improving hold in humid or rainy weather above already impressive dry weather performance.
The thin, unpadded palm is ideal for those who prize control over cushioning. The water-resistant Climatec backing does an adequate job of keeping fingers warm for use as a spring-weight glove, especially with the wide, secure Velcro cuff to keep drafts at bay.
They dry very quickly too. Theyre not warm enough for extremely cold days, but if youre looking for gloves with minimal padding and lots of grip, these are well worth considering.
