Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great glove - one improvement needed I've been using these gloves for about a year and I absolutely love them. I've used them on multiple 14ers and some winter hikes, as well as ice climbing. Overall I'm very pleased with the fit and durability and look forward to using them for years to come. One opportunity for improvement would be for BD to add a carabiner loop to one of the winters or the velcro so that I could hang these off my harness or pack when not in use. Otherwise this is a great, mid/lightweight water proof glove that provides warmth and protection into the low 20s when active.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Warm and dry I had these gloves for less than a season before they ripped. They also ran small in terms of sizing; I usually fit into medium just fine. With dry hands, it was a struggle and wet hands near impossible. I am not super impressed with BD soft good lines, I have been climbing with other friends, and their BD gloves blow out. They are the bottom end budget glove, so hopefully there higher end hold up better!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great day-to-day winter glove. Good fit, I followed the directions to measure and they fit great. Plus, I'm normally a medium and bought a medium. I've had them out to -11C so far with no issues, which is the temperature I bought these for. Essentially, they are what they say. Great day-to-day winter glove before the temps drop too much.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Functional and warm I purchased these gloves in November and have been using them weekly for cross country skiing, touring, and general winter use (shovelling, driving, etc.). They are very form fitting and warm up to about -10 C. Sizing is true to fit but they are a bit difficult to get them on and off. If your hands are sweating, they are very challenging to take off. I believe it is because of the narrow opening at the wrist. Once they are on, they perform very well. The grip is superb and they allow for good dexterity and manipulation of gear.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from poor sizing I bought the impulse in a medium and it fit. So then I bought this glove in a medium and my hand doesn't even fit inside. I find the sizing of black diamond gloves to differ greatly from model to model so hard to purchase online. This has happened twice now.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent grip, low insulation I'm on my second pair of these, and use them now exclusively for ice climbing. Fantastic grip and just warm enough to keep the hands from freezing. Learned some lessons from the first pair which ended up getting prematurely trashed. Don't use them on days when you plan to climb in single digit temps.
