Those look like the Singing Rock version of the hand jammie.

Hey, that's Apron Strings. On my to-do list.

And those things look crazy lame. Can't handle a hand jam, seriously?

OK Buttercup.

Step 1. Pull up your skirt.
Step 2. Tape up, like a real man. :)

Either (HandJammies or tape) are like having only one nut, and that one nut is shaved. Fun oddity for the ladies, sorta neat for flashing your bro's in bars, but definitely not something a man would do long term.

Rubber gloves certainly don't look as cool as tapeing up, but that's not the point. It's not that tape doesn't work or that these make jamming easier. The reason people buy these gloves is so that they don't have to go through endless rolls of tape. Also useful if just doing a single pitch of jamming.


I think the reason people buy these is they don't know better...

Endless rolls of tape? I reuse my tape gloves, they last me many pitches (about 6 months?) and I can throw them on for single pitches without taping the wrists if I just want them for one pitch.

Climbing at the Belvedere crag near Nago with a great view of the northern end of Lake Garda and the town of Torbole sul Garda below. June 2013.

Agreed, looks like Ocuns. I've climbed cracks without tape, with tape, with hand jammiesŪ and with the Ocuns. As far as crack gloves go, the Ocuns are my favorite. Low profile and the closest thing to taping up but much faster and, in the long run, likely cheaper than all the rolls of tape one might go through in their life.

I don't agree. I "know better" and still will use crack gloves from time to time. (As well as reuse my tape gloves for many sessions.)
Tape up or use crack gloves. Effectually the two options are identical--reduce skin loss and reduce discomfort.

Me and the offspring walking back to the car after a day of cragging.

I had a pair of Hand Jammies and the rubber shredded on them on the fifth or sixth use. Completely ripped away from the suede like it was paper. I'm a tape guy now. Anyone else ever had this happen? Seems like a good idea in theory considering how much tape costs, but my only experience was a negative one and I was left feeling like I got ripped off for 30 bucks.

Are there notable differences between these different products?

A buddy of mine had a pair that lasted all of 1 climb before they
tore apart. Go back and buy that tape, you can make gloves that last for days. . .

Yeah...and sticky rubber climbing shoes are for girly-men. Real men where hobnail boots.

I used to think I was manly but passing on the tape. then one random night I ended up drinking with Jim Bridwell at a friends house. He noticed my hands were shredded and asked about them, I told him I was working a roof crack. He asked me if I had ever heard of tape...

Can I use those when wanking it? If so, will they prevent chaffing?

I still have, and use, a pair of Dave Crawford's original Spider Mitts.

Way better than hassling with tape.

Men who tape probably also use condoms.

Then what do men who use "jammies" for climbing use for "safe" sex?
