Rab Guide Glove Long
The Guide Glove Long is a highly durable, waterproof glove with a longer cuff to protect from wind and snow, specifically designed for regular use—i.e. guiding— in alpine environments. The glove's cuff and backhand are made from a Matrix softshell fabric, which combined with Pittards Amortan leather for the rest of the glove provides an ideal balance of durability and dexterity. The fully waterproof and breathable eVent® DValpine keeps rain and snow out, and PrimaLoft Gold insulation on the back of the hand adds warmth, even when its completely wet. It's a do everything glove that balances warmth, durability, and dexterity in the mountains.

PrimaLoft® Gold Insulation
PrimaLoft® is a hydrophobic, synthetic down fibre that, unlike natural down, resists water absorption. It was originally developed by the U.S. Army's R&D team, who were tasked to create an alternative to down that could withstand exposure to moisture yet still be highly warm, breathable, and compressible. Today, PrimaLoft® is considered the industry best in synthetic insulation, and Gold Insulation boasts the ability to retain 96% of warmth, even when soaking wet.
