MEC Prophet Gloves - Unisex

5024-101

Description

Designed for multi-day use and built for variable tending toward harsh conditions, these are excellent gloves for skiing, mountaineering, and alpine climbing. Our gear tester, Chris Geisler was wearing a prototype pair when he attempted a new route on the SE ridge of Cerro Torre. Descending from a high point just 60m from the summit, he pretty much trashed his test pair during a full night of rappelling through a whiteout, but he was still psyched about their fit, dexterity and durability.

  • Shell is made of durable 4-way stretch woven nylon
  • Excellent DWR helps shed wetness
  • Waterproof-breathable insert
  • Goatskin leather palms for durability, with digital goatskin overlays

  • Hyperloft insulation on the hand backs adds mid-range warmth, with Dryhand polyester lining to keep heat in

  • Under-the-cuff neoprene closure with Velcro tab customizes the fit and seals out the elements
