How-to Video: Fitting Black Diamond Gloves and Mitts

China’s first-ever trad climbing festival in Laojunshan National Park


Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 12 reviewers.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Great design bad contruction The glove is tough as nails, the construction not so much. All of the fingers have come unstitched as are parts of the palm. The glove and material is great other than that. I do have to say that I've probably put these gloves through more than Black Diamond intended but leather work gloves I would expect more than this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Runs Extremely small! These are great gloves. But, be careful when considering which size to order. I have gone through several pairs of the Crag gloves and I comfortably fit in a Large size. This time I decided to try the Transition glove. I ordered a size Large to start with as I just assumed the fit would be the same as the Crag. I couldnt even get close to putting the large on. I then ordered a pair of Extra Large and while those are wearable, they are very snug. So, Large in Crag = Barely fit Extra Large in Transition. March 3, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by I'm a fan. The transition is a great multipurpose, durable glove. I find myself using these gloves all the time, built and sized well. January 27, 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by Prone to failure I love the fit, feel, and dexterity BUT they do not last. I've had three pairs of these glove and all have failed in the stitching. I warranted one pair with on problem (thanks BD) but these gloves don’t last. The best condition pair I own have duct tape on three fingers and a palm stitch coming undone. I think the fiber they use to sew these gloves is the weak link. They are great gloves but I expect a longer lasting product from BD so I can't recommend them. November 7, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Finally! A belay / climbing glove that is tough, comfortable, and dexterous... FINALLY! October 2, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great wear resistance Purchased these gloves for a Rope Rescue Course. They worked great wet or dry working with 600' 11mm ropes @ 2kN loads under basic friction systems, had limited heat transfer and no loss of grip. Tying knots was a breeze with the great dexterity. Only limited wear after a 100+ hr course where others were going through multiple pairs. Great Gear = Good Times! October 1, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Gloves Stiff at first usage, but becomes flexible after a few usage. There are holes on velcro straps and it's perfect for carrying using a carabiner. Gloves help put less pressure on hands especially when taking a break from climbing and belying your climbing partner. It helps avoid hands injury from sheath ropes. September 19, 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Bomber, But Frustrating Fit The design, materials, fit and finish are all top notch. The fit is frustrating - I'm between a S and M. The small were so tight it was uncomfortable to make a fist, but the medium allow extra material at the thumb rendering it mostly useless for working with biners or other fine motor skills. In the end, cutting off the tip of the thumb worked, but for pricey gloves I didn't love doing that. BD could solve this by adding some stretch to the material, allowing for a wider range of fit.
