Rated 5 out of 5 by jrock from Great ski/snow gloves! These are great all-around gloves! The dexterity is excellent while still having plenty of insulation. Quality is top notch and durability is very good as the leather they use is tough but still soft. Sizing is accurate- I should be a medium, ordered a medium and fits perfect. These keep me warm on all but really cold days when I pull out the Black Diamond mitts. The value is really good too because there are brands that charge a lot more for a lesser product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Clifford Huckstable from Great Fit I have only gotten one chance to use these gloves so far but my first impression is that they're great! Probably the most important feature of any pair of gloves is the fit and these fit really well. The fit is definitely an improvement over the previous version of the Spark which in my opinion had too wide of a pad on the back of the knuckles. The leather is thick and feels durable but supple. I don't think there is really any break in period with the leather, it feels great right out of the box. I haven't had a chance to see how these gloves hold up to wet weather but I'll probably end up treating them with some glove balm from Nikwax or Hestra. The suede nose wipe is a nice addition. I also like the wrist closer because it's simple and not at all bulky. It makes the gloves easy to get under the cuff of my jacket which I struggle with on some under-the-cuff gloves. Overall these gloves are very well thought out, well made, and feel like they should cost more than they do.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Connor94 from Not Durable I usually love Black Diamond gear. The dawn patrol 32 is the best snow pack I've ever had and they make the best climbing pro in the business. However, these gloves are poorly made. I got two pairs and both had the same issue. The first pair I bought I took out splitboarding and on the first day I used them the stitching on the Index finger for the left hand blew out. Just from a single day of use. I returned them to Black Diamond and they quickly sent me a replacement pair. The second pair I got I used 4 times. I was loving them. They had great dexterity and were warm. A little to warm for skinning up in the backcountry but great for inbounds laps. I thought the first pair I got was defective. But today the stitching blew out again. Same spot on the same left hand glove. I don't know if its the way the stitching is on the particular model or what but these gloves are not durable at all. I'll just have to try my luck on another model of glove. Probably going to stay away from the Spark gloves unfortunately. For the few times I used them when the stitching held they were great though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Idroprocks from Warm These gloves are great, they are super warm and appear to be tough also. I’ve had a few different BD gloves, they have all lasted through some pretty serious use
