Closure location

Closure location

Inside or Outside

Crack gloves close around the wrist typically with a velcro-like strap which lays either on the inside of the wrist (the palm side) or the outside of the wrist (the back of the hand). Most gloves close on the inside of the wrist where the closure is more protected from coming undone while jamming, though some manufacturers choose to close on the back for a lower profile closure that is more comfortable against the softer inner arm.

Thumb Coverage

Thumb Coverage


Crack gloves are made with different types of cracks and rock in mind. Some manufacturers have begun building greater thumb protection into their designs which can be beneficial if you are climbing wider cracks where fist-jamming is common. We consider thumb coverage to completely cover the knuckle and at least part of the first digit of the thumb. If only part of the knuckle is covered it is considered partial.

Partially covers thumb knuckle


Strap Coverage

Strap coverage refers to the wrist closure strap having a built-in place to stow once it is closed. This feature is included on some gloves to help avoid the strap being opened when you don’t want it to be.

WeighMyRack Tips:

Runs very small. Some users have even reported needing to size up two sizes compared to Singing Rock's sizing chart. Elastic finger loops stretch a LOT for sausage fingers.

The thumb hole is the smallest out of all gloves we've tested, so those with particularly big thumbs may not fit. If you're already on the XL end of the spectrum, these gloves may not be able to fit you at all.


Glove Materials

Main Glove

This refers to the material or materials that make up the main body of a crack glove. This is usually either a form of natural or synthetic suede, synthetic material or combination of both. This may include the materials used to make holes or loops for fingers but should not be confused with the Backing material that is added on the back of the glove for contact with the rock.


This is the material that crack glove manufacturers adhere to the back of the glove to add friction and padding between your hand and the rock. This is usually some form of rubber or synthetic rubber compound and can be in very thin to relatively thick, although not all crack gloves have backing material.

Main Glove: Artificial stretch leather
Backing: Rubber with high friction
Thickness Brand Thickness: Not specified ­
WeighMyRack Says Decent on parallel cracks for those with smaller hands, particularly when worn snug. Rubber is sticky but can feel numb for delicate hands or blind jams in deeper cracks. Better as cracks widen and flare a bit, though good jamming technique and strong hands are required to get the glove to deform securely in flares. A stiff, grippy, padded stack maker. When sized down and supplemented with tape, these become building materials for offwidth. Not great but decent on slippery and jagged formations. Again the limiting factor is correct glove fit and that it isn't too big for the size of crack, and trusting your jams when you can't feel them as well.

WeighMyRack Gear Review First Hand Review

Overall the Singing Rock Craggy may seem like a wide aficionado’s dream glove, and something to avoid for anyone with dreams of perfect hands, but that is only part of the story. This glove fits so strangely and feels so different from the rest of the gloves we’ve tried that it can be difficult to recommend without knowing more about a person’s experience and measurements. While traveling around crags and giving folks opportunities to choose any brand they like, it was rare to see people reaching back for them when they had other options in our bag of tricks to try.
