I actually got the stealth kit to coat the tips of gloves. I'm used to having my fingers uncovered, and there was one section of low class 5 rock friction slab on the way to a summit. The day for the climb was predicted to be windy with a high of 25F.
So I bought a pair of insulated worker gloves, that were a little tight, and coated the palm-side fingertips with the barge-sticky rubber mix. That one time, they were excellent -- far grippier than my skin, even in warmer weather.
I'm now rebuilding some trail-running and approach shoes with the urethane-sticky rubber mix. I start out the repair with pure urethane, and gradually increase the proportion of sticky rubber as I move out. We'll see how it works.
