Rated 5 out of 5 by Michael These are really nice gloves
I had a pair of Black Diamond gloves for a few years and was Very happy with them. I had them in the back seat of my car, and after my son and his friend got in and out of the car a few times, at different locations, I noticed one was missing! These aren't cheap gloves...!!! I'm talking in quality, or price. But because of the quality, I was convinced I would purchase another pair. They fit a little tight, but I'm sure that once they are broken in they will mold to my hands like my old pair did. I'm very happy with my purchase and this seller.

I utilized this glove for 2.5 years in the Sierra Nevada mountains as a Mountain Warfare Instructor. In temperatures down to -20F, this glove kept my hands sufficiently warm while active. I returned to the Sierra Nevadas this year as a member of a training unit, and brought them back with me. After 2.5 years of daily wear and tear, I still had not damaged the gloves beyond the wiping patch getting dry-rotted from storage!
I ordered a new set of large gloves only to discover that the sizing has gotten a bit smaller with this newest iteration. My hands have always been right on the border between a large and an extra large, and the first set I owned was large and fit wonderfully. This new set was a bit too snug. No worries though - a simple return and exchange, and I had a new set of XL Guides in hand prior to deploying to Norway above the Arctic Circle. They are still going strong up here, and keeping the hands warm in sub-zero temperatures.

Very well made gloves.
Not the warmest though. Dexterity trade-off I guess.
Tighter fit in palm and across top of hand than I like but still ok. no room for heat pack around the resort, if ever needed, but that's the fit to my hand.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Adam Love the glove, but....
I have used this glove for five seasons now mostly for recreational skiing inbounds. I average about 50 days on the mountain give or take a few. Some of those days include hiking out of bounds, shovelling race courses, or carrying gates but nothing like the work patrollers do. Nearly every year they give out at the seams along a finger where the leather meets the nylon. Once it was the stitching on the palm. I have slender fingers and wear an XL. Warranty program always comes through, but I have to live without them for a couple weeks. They are warm, dry, and articulate well. Love the features, just wish they were more durable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Eve best cold weather hand protection EVER
I bought these gloves for my always-cold husband. They are the first gloves he's ever had which keep his hands truly warm in the lowest Boston temperatures. He is absolutely thrilled.
Thank you for making such a stellar product.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Joseph Quality build, but cold
As a 25 year veteran of the National Ski Patrol I use quality equipment. This is a well constructed glove, but as for Black Diamond claim to be its warmest glove it doesn't cut it. Even at 10 degrees above zero it doesn't keep my fingers warm. In the mid teens its OK. That being said it looks like it will be very durable for the abuse I give it on any given ski day.

I guided a group of snow cat powder skiers last week in a monumental 103" storm and my hands stayed warm and dry all day! The gauntlet cuff worked well in deep powder conditions.
