Arc Gloves is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 21.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from I wanted to love them... I use the BD Pilot gloves with a merino liner for climbing ice, but in really cold temps, I wanted something warmer. They fit well, but the built-in liner is a colossal pain in the buttocks. If there is even a tiny bit of moisture on my hands, the liner sticks to my skin and shifts when I switch to my belay goves, making it difficult to get my fingers back in when its time to climb again. If I sized up to be able to accommodate my merino liners, I lose all-important dexterity for placing screws and clipping biners. If you have hands that never sweat, these gloves would be great. My search for the perfect glove continues...

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Warm and Grippy I've been using these gloves for several months now climbing ice in Alaska. They've been surprisingly warm despite the cold temperatures. I typically wear them as my approach gloves for temperatures 5 and lower and wear them all day when its warmer. The gloves stay dry even on wet ice and the palms have been surprisingly grippy even in snow or when wet. The only negatives I have about these gloves is that the palms don't seem very durable, I doubt these gloves will make it to next season with the same performance. Also, it is difficult to put them on or take them off if your hands have sweated in them due to the liner sticking to your hand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great all-around glove. The Arc glove is a great all-around glove, good dexterity and great grip. A little thin of insulation in the external area when just walking to work, giving me cold fingertips. But very waterproof and warm when moving. This gloves work great for touring in the backcountry; I splitboard, and they keep my hands warm and dry with all the maneuvers we have to do for transition with wet snow and hand tests on the way up. Sometimes a little too warm in the skinning. They are very good managing ropes or alpine tools when climbing, great grip and waterproof when punching snow. they fit really well. I have been using this gloves ice climbing, but sometimes I still hit my fingers or feel more cold. So for better coverage in ice, the Punisher are my preference.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid Gloves, don't soak through! The BD Arc gloves are pretty skookum. They are very warm and the palms are very grippy. I would like to see a loop of webbing to clip to a carabiner that would also function as a tab to pull the glove on. The velcro tab works well. I would also like to see a better way of clipping the gloves together. The small clip is low profile but difficult to operate if you have liners on. The best part about these gloves is how dry the stay. When BD says 100% waterproof they mean it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Arc Gloves These would've been a great glove, once you can get them over your hand. I have pretty small hands, and I usually buy all my BD gloves in a medium; however it was like pulling teeth to get the darn glove over my hand. Once the redness and soreness went away from my hand, the gloves fit great. Its getting them to that point that hurts. Maybe its a defect, but the elastic near the throat had no elasticity. I will be returning them and already have a return label

Rated 2 out of 5 by from They Were Great Until... Good glove for alpine climbing or spring skiing until you have to take them off. The slightest bit of moisture on your hand makes it ridiculously hard to get them back on, that is if the liner hasn't pulled out of the fingers. Then it really is nearly impossible to get them back on. Aside from that the grip on these gloves are great, perfect for climbing in the Berner or Walliser Alps.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing light weight glove I noticed some reviewers recommended a size up (advice I followed). Unfortunately this made the glove too large for me. It is designed to be a close fitting, dexterous glove, not a roomy "ski glove". I normally wear a L and ordered XL based on reviews. I should have stayed with my normal "L" size. Otherwise, excellent quality and utility. Highly recommend for its advertised use.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from not very warm but very well waterpoofed, good price-quality relation I recomend using this glove for classic alpinism or back-country skiing in every-day winter conditions, as it is not too warm but very well waterproofed. It is a little less fitted for ice-climbing, especially in cold weather. The grip wears down fast when using ice tools. It reminds never less a very good, long lasting glove, especially in a price-quality relation.
