Tochieka Gloves are an ideal rope rescue glove for the profesional technician. They are made for active rope handling, where build up of heat in the hands could be of concern.
The Tochieka Glove is made of goat leather to give it a supple feeling but is still very durable. In overall goat leather is the most superior for gloves.
The padded insulated layer between two layers of leather has proven itself in the past when we had our first gloves made in Montreal back in 2001. The idea is simple, at the time there were only “rappel” gloves on the market which had multiple rough layers of leather but if you understand anything about thermal transmission you know that when leather gets wet from sweating it is no longer a good insulator. Hence the idea of adding a better insulator to the glove and have it also more supple as the old rappel gloves were hard to work with.
