The idiot cord came in account on more serious gigs. It would be a cord running from one glove to the other, inside the jacket, along the arms and in the back. It can be efficient then also without the jacket, or when using an other one.
And I'd always stick to the Gaston rule of having one extra glove (as well as one piton) as a golden reserve.

If you have one cord for both gloves (inside the jacket), it might get less caught on gear - maybe worth trying out.
