I bought a pair of these in the store near Chamonix. Over the course of a week, these quickly became my favourite gloves. I had good feel for ropes and gear with these on and they provided a pleasant level of comfort with an ice axe in hand, particularly on warmer days. Nice lightweight leather gloves. No real palm reinforcement.
They are not waterproof, but do dry fairly quickly if you do get them wet.
My only regret is not buying a second pair st the time, because the price is slightly higher in the U.K. Probably down to the much poorer exchange rate post Brexit announcement.
Definitely recommended for rope handling, summer belaying, summer alpine use and if you need to - indoor climbing use.

I got to wear these once on a via ferrata on Triglav and there are now holes in 7 of the 10 fingers. This is appalling performance relative to the price I paid. Do not buy them, they are beyond useless.
