Rated 5 out of 5 by Carolyne Men's Guide Glove
Love this glove. They run big.I had to send the size medium back and order a small. I have another pair of Black Diamond gloves that fit well and they are medium.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Roger Please Sell the Liners Again
I've been using the Guide glove for years, and found it to be one of the best gloves for ski mountaineering. I'd give past generations of the glove 5 stars because BD sold replacement waterproof liners. The shells held up pretty well, while the insulation in the liners would pack out and they would start to leak. It was cost effective to simply buy replacement liners.
BD says they no longer sell replacement liners. Sorry to hear that, because being able to buy replacement liners was one of the greatest features of this glove. BD, please reconsider, and start selling the liners again!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Marjorie Guide gloves for Christmas
This is the Christmas present that wasn't. These gloves are rated to -20F. Today it was 8 degrees above and my fingers froze. They are no warmer than my $50 gloves that I have used in the past. I would send them back for you to resell if I didn't have to pay for the shipping.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Stowe Solid glove, with some minor issues
Just bought and then used this glove on a January summit of Mt. Shasta.
Gloves were warm, maintained dexterity, and were tough enough to stand up to the sharp volcanic rock outcrops we scrambled around on the ridgeline.
Couple of issues:
1) I bought the size recommended by the size chart (measured my hand and all). I should have sized up to accomodate a liner.
2) The weather was variable, from 50+mph gusts blowing snow to warm and sunny. When my hands got a bit sweaty, it was hard to pull my hands out of the gloves and then reinsert due to the insulation layer getting snagged inside the glove. At one point, I pull out the insulation layer, put on a different liner and then put that back into the outer glove.
Overall, I'm satisfied and will be using these on future mountaineering as I begin to explore the mountains more in the winter.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Anthony Could be better
I've been an Ultimate buyer for years,,, tried BD for the first time.
I had to adapt the glove to be more of a work glove,,, strings to keep the glove close and not fall is a really good thing. The gauntlet needs to be insulated as well. The shock cord synch is weak.
Water proofing is just ok, I haven't put the Nikwax suff on yet to see if it's better.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Chuck good product but too small
I like the glove but it could be larger. I purchased an extra large but it feels more like a large glove.

Rated 4 out of 5 by JB Bomber gloves
So far, I love my new Guide Gloves. Solid construction, comfortable, stylish and warm. My hands are on the colder side, so on two sub-zero patrol days, I did use some hand warmers (which I was using every day in my previous pair of gloves — so that's a major improvement). I can't wait to put them through the wringer throughout the rest of the season.
