      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

waterproofing gloves?

Recommended Posts

What do you guys use to waterproof your leather palmed ice climbing gloves? I was looking at either nikwax glove proof or the rub in wax.

Would either of these work?

Both definitely work, warm the gloves up before applying and keep in a warm place for some time afterwards, say an hour. The treatment does not last forever and needs to be reapplied eventually, depending on how often they get wet.
