An amazing level of grip and touchscreen compatibility make these glove a modern classic. Warm and comfortable with a good level of stretch to make them really practical.
Rab says: Lightweight glove in Polartec® stretch fabric with sticky palm for all round use in variable conditions and as a liner glove.
The Power Stretch Contact Grip Glove is a lightweight glove with a grippy palm, designed for everyday use.
A low bulk cuff with Lycra® edging means that this glove can be worn comfortably with outerwear. Made with Polartec® Power Stretch® Pro fabric, the Power Stretch Contact Grip Glove features a grippy silicon palm and conductive print on index finger and thumb for use with smartphones.
Rab's Power Stretch Contact Grip Gloves provide a decent amount of warmth from the Polartec Power Stretch Pro material. The fleece lining and stretch in the material make them really comfortable for wearing over long periods and allow you to keep a good level of dexterity.
If you need the extra grip provided with the silicon design on the palm then these are definitely worth it. I have found them much more usable, particularly when heading outdoors and using equipment. If you simply want the warmth and comfort but don't think you'll need to handle that much then go for the non grip version and save a few quid.
