Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 4 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very well made gloce. Soft and easy to use. Great feature is the ability to be able to operate machinery while using the glove. However, I thought since Black Diamond made mountain climbing gloves this glove would keep my hands warm. It doesn't! January 29, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Transition Glove gets the job done Overall I really like the transition glove. Its tough, comfortable, and does a great job of providing protection without loss of dexterity. My only complaint is the sizing and the way the glove fits. The fit is odd because the index finger (pretty important) does not fit as tight as I would like it which makes any task which requires precision difficult. Petzl makes a comparable glove which fits me perfectly but i dont feel its as tough and durable. The sizing is the next issue I came across. Again due to the fact I have short fat hands it was difficult to determine which size to get and as a result had to send back the initial pair purchased (which was no prob b/c BD has a wicked return/replacement team). It would be helpful if there was some advice/guidance about whether or not to lean towards a size up or down/advice on fitting in addition to the sizing chart. Over all I really like this glove.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Great durable glove The 'Transition Glove' is a great all around durable glove. The gloves in the picture may seem beat up but they have belayed, rappelled, hauled and jugged many pitches for the past 2 years. The reason I gave these gloves 4 instead of 5 stars is that they seemed to take some time to break in. While wearing these gloves for long periods of time when they were new, the seams rubbed on the backs of my fingers. All around great gloves for taking the abuse of climbing. November 30, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by super durable, great glove I have used these for everything from climbing, to carpentry and they fit well, are super durable, and dexterous. I would recommend these. They are stiffer than the crag, but will outlast them, and they break in really well. October 17, 2013
