I agree. I'm going to start bringing more then one pair of gloves. Sometimes my hands sweat when its warming up and that is just a really gross feeling

tonicusa Yeah they really are. Not sure how I even learned about Defcon. They aren't on Dogfunk or Evo or any large retailers anymore for some reason. But their gloves are excellent.

Those look perfect, I'm probably gonna pick up the black Krakens.
All leather gloves for that price and that hold up for 5 years sounds like a deal.

tonicusa Defcon are the best gloves I've ever owned for that application. They've outlasted every other pair I have and the seams and workmanship are great.Transistor and Kraken.

Dutty I found a good looking set of ice climbing gloves, but they are pretty pricey.
Ice climbing gloves
I found a red pair on ebay for 80 bux, but i might give cheap work gloves a try before I buy those.

I thought these stretch gloves might be ok too, they say they are water repellent
Stretch gloves
Thanks for the responses everybody, definitely steered me in the right direction.

ACairngormFace On the topic of gloves, this is a pretty good article from a UK big wall climber, Andy Kirkpatrick. Gives a detailed insight on different glove/mitt designs and systems.

redlude97 if you want to drop some dough get some ice climbing gloves

ACairngormFace Power stretch gloves are pretty sweet. Warmish for a thin glove, secure and have decent dexterity. Hail to the POWER-STRETCH!

Pretty much nearly all outdoor brands have there own PS gloves (rab, extremities, northface).
