Penance gloves are weight-reducing melee gloves which require 40 Defence to wear. These gloves can be obtained by exchanging 150 Honour Points of each role from the Barbarian Assault minigame, or 60 thaler. They offer the greatest weight reduction bonus in the hand slot, at -7.0 kg. More than one pair of this item can be owned.
The gloves are part of the Penance armour set, which restores prayer over time (30 points per minute) when the full set (fighter torso, penance skirt, runner boots, penance gloves, and any penance hat) is worn.
The penance gloves can be upgraded to a hardened penance gloves using a barbarian assault armour patch. Upgrading the gloves has no cosmetic difference.

- On 1 February 2010, the gloves were given a +4 strength bonus.
