Rappelling & Zip Line Gloves
These gloves are our most popular Rappelling Gloves and Zip Line Gloves.
Rappelling & Zip Line gloves are very similar for their hand safety, gripping, and abrasion resistance properties and functions.
The primary safety goal is to protect your hands from the friction caused by the fast movement of the ropes or zip line cables. Therefore gloves used in rappelling maneuvers and grabbing zip lines must have a high level of abrasion resistance on the palms of each glove. These gloves should also be sized to the user so their dexterity is not hindered.
The only difference is that some rappelling gloves should offer some higher dexterity for handling ropes and tools. This would especially be the case when rappelling out of helicopters. However, in most cases, gloves used in rappelling operations would also be ideal for use in zip line operations.
