How-to Video: Fitting Black Diamond Gloves and Mitts

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


Rated 4.1 out of 5 by 15 reviewers.
Rated 3 out of 5 by The sizing run small and the black gloves stain I use these gloves for big wall climbing. I lead, haul,and jug in them. The gloves lasted three route. The reanimator on Washington's column and lunar eclipse and pacemaker on El cap.The stitching in all the fingers blew out on pacemaker. Nothing a little tape wouldn't fix. The clip in hole it's perfect for clipping your chisel to for heading and cleaning as you can see in the photo. I bought another pair of tan gloves I don't think they will stain my hands. Overall a good glove that lasted 50 + aid pitches July 14, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great belay/repel glove! Glove fits great! Great for belaying or repelling. The hold up great in all conditions. June 30, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good for them ropes and stuff For the price i haven't found a better glove for rope work. The glove fits my hand wonderfully and the gloves seem to last a very long time. Even with high usage. One draw back is that the fingertips seems to split if they are used very aggressively when wet. I.e. rock climbing with them in the rain. June 22, 2015
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 28, 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
