Fit and Size Chart
The Cold Lap.
We spent the 2016-17 year glueing and stitching stuff to the old Ropelife mitts, and found a certain leather that took a beating but never wore through. We cut a new pattern to fit this new patch, sent it to the factory, and the samples were amazing – after some further tweaking and simplifying, we developed a pattern that wasted less material, cost less, and fit like a glove.
Everything we learned from the Ropelife and feedback from the people rocking them gave us a huge leg up in the glove world. A tight, form-fitting pattern broken by a neoprene knuckle to flex while the glove stays snug on your hand. A longer sweater cuff, stretchier wrist, and slightly adjusted fingers.
What does all that get you?
- Full rubber palm – tons of grip. tons.
- Overlapping pattern – protects the seams.
- Soft insulation – a cloud of warmth, like holding your hands in warm jello. mmm
- Pigskin shell – stays soft when it dries, takes abuse, loves it.
- Chairlift bands – they’re awesome.
Our glove sizing is pretty straight forward. Measure your hand while holding it like you’re drawing a face on your palm. Pretend. Right now.
We intend these gloves to be used on the rope, so they should feel like they’re well-tailored, to reduce the twisting that looser gloves do. Your thumb and fingers will be fairly close to the ends, but not jammed.
