The training that I've been involved with for the past few months has involved a lot of knot tying, rappeling, belaying, and other rope skills. So the requirements for the gloves we use are quite steep - durable, dextrous, and well padded.

Some of my teammates traded off the durability and went with cheaper but well padded work gloves, thinking that they can replace them more easily. I went with a more expensive work glove with goatskin leather and a reinforced palm, believing in their claims of durability. These gloves were indeed dextrous, but I could definitely feel the friction of the rope on rappels and on a canyoneering trip, I burned holes into two fingers just after one day.

Enter the Petzl K53 Cordex Plus Midweight gloves. I chose these over the lightweight Petzls because the leather is doubled up over the fingers. They are surprisingly nimble considering how much leather you have around your fingers. I actually find that I can tie knots faster with these because the leather is less likely to get snagged.

The leather so far has held up well...not even the slightest bit of wear after a day of rappeling. All the seams remained tight and intact and the stitching shows no signs of fraying. I'll update the review more as I get to beat these gloves up.

The palm is heavily padded to the point where it's a little difficult to tell if you're really holding a rope. The padding is really effective as I did some fast rappels and there wasn't even the slightest bit of discomfort. The lack of feeling in the palm does concern me for when I'm tired, cold, and my hands are numb - especially when rappeling on a thinner rope. But I suppose as long as you maintain a proper brake position, the grip doesn't have to be the most firm.

The midweight is much better than the lightweight. The padding on the palm is twice as thick. Still has the same coloring and design as the lightweight as well as a clip to hang them on your belt. Gloves stretch for perfect fit.

I really wanted to love these gloves, but I was disappointed with them in a few different respects...enough to, in my mind, justify a three star rating.

1) Consistency of Fit. I tried on five different pairs of these at a local outfitter and the sizing wasn't consistent at all. Let me be clear, the gloves I tried on were actually the lightweight version as the store didn't carry the midweights, but sizing is the same for both versions. Bare with me here. First I tried on a medium which was way too small. Next I tried on a large, which was pretty close but still too small. Then I tried a X-large which fit very well but the index finger of the left glove was way too long and it was also kinda twisted (hard to explain). Tried on a second pair of X-larges and they were too big. Finally I tried on a second pair of larges and they fit a bit snuggly but they were fine.

A few days later a couple of caving buddies suggested I return the lightweight gloves for the midweights, as the lightweights probably wouldn't hold up long with muddy cave rope. I returned the gloves to the local store and took a chance and ordered a pair of large Cordex Plus gloves from amazon. I was nervous about the sizing by this point.

The gloves arrived quickly from amazon and fit snugly; the thumbs are a bit short but whatevaz. I lucked out in the sizing dept. as these were the best fit yet. My point is that the sizing of these gloves appears to be all over the map. A disappointment considering the price.

2) Showing some definite signs of wear after just two rappels and ascents on lightly dirty PMI Pit Rope. Both pits I used these on were only about 100' deep and the rope wasn't wet.

I like the fit and feel of these gloves, so 1 star for that. My problem is with the high cost/durability. I took a new pair on a 3 day trip to Zion and after the 2nd day had a hole in the palm where they aren't reinforced. The lightweight version (for $10 less) or cheapie hardware store gloves (for 1/5 the cost) would have held up just as well.
I emailed Petzl's customer service about the hole, they did not respond.

I really can't say enough about the K53 gloves. They're not used for rappelling either. This is the 3rd pair of these that I own; all 3 are currently in use. I use these as winter-use/driving gloves. Super comfy but also great when you need to change a tire.

Outstanding gloves. I've used a pair for weightlifting, YES WEIGHTLIFTING in the gym with barbells and dumbbells for two years now and have yet to wear them out, no holes even. Thats a durable pair of gloves right there. Sure they get a little sweaty and stiff but loosen up after a minute of wearing them. I wear the black ones.
GREAT all around glove for just about anything. I normally wear a medium in gloves, but take a small in these for finer detail movement.

ALSO - if you do sweat in them, they will loosen up. Best to order one size down.
