Rab Guide Glove

A serious winter glove the Rab Guide is designed for extensive use in full winter conditions. Reinforced for use with tools or poles and using top quality materials the glove is built to be durable as well as highly functional.

What the Manufacturers say

Hardwearing, eVent® waterproof and breathable glove with leather reinforcement and a stretch softshell back.

Micro fleece lining adds comfort and warmth and Pittards Armortan® palm is durable and grippy.

Additional reinforcement to the palm and thumb for use with poles or tools and a flocking patch on the thumb make this an ideal ski touring or mountaineering glove.

With an extra leather reinforcement on cuff, back of hand and on critical seams the Guide is our most durable glove yet. Ideal for anyone who spends lots of time in a cold weather environment and needs a glove that won't let them down or for anybody who is particularly hard on their kit... hence the 'Guide' name.

Most at home in the outdoors, preferably on top of something big and pointy. Scotland is Davy's playground, which is why he doesn’t mind getting wet. But winter is where it’s at. Hiking, scrambling, camping and a bit of climbing when I can. Sucker for a ridge. At a lower altitude he try getting out on his bike and run if he has to.

Davy describes himself as "a bit of a gear geek, maybe less of the bit. I like to see how things work or don’t!" In following this line Davy has become a respected and authoritative blogger over the last few years, working with many of the UK's major manufacturers and retailers.

Preferred activities: Hillwalking, camping, scrambling, trying to get better at climbing/ice climbing, cycling/mountain biking

Areas commonly visited: Lochaber, Cairngorms, Lake District
