Reduce injury from cable and rope burns
This type of glove is made with tough leather and a reinforced palm to protect hands from rope and cable burns. These gloves can be used by the zipline brake line operator, zipline rider, or the person assisting with the launch. These were developed by the climbing industry for the same reason, used by belayers. This type of glove is called a belay glove and "handy" for use in home zipline courses.
