A super grippy palm and capped fingers offer a bomber hold on poles and tools. And with four-way stretch on the back of hand and woven nylon shell, they offer a high level of dexterity, so they're ideal for chilly days when light is right.

Impulse Gloves is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Glove A very large glove, puffy and extremely warm. Has with all BD gloves the fingers seem long. Very comfortable.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I preferred the previous versions The first pair I had were a neoprene type mixed climbing glove (which fell apart). The second pair was the grey leather palm which tended to be more a backcountry/XC ski glove, the only drawback was the Velcro closure. The insulation has packed down a bit so I keep it for XC skiing. Now this pair... They're to bulky for ice climbing and I've found that the insulation has packed down very quickly. I can't hold on to anything metal for very long when the temperature drops below -10°C (15°F). The palm is nice and sticky and has lasted up to now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The perfect Ski Touring Glove The impulse glove is my go-to for just about every ski day: ski touring, resort laps, or long mountaineering missions. It's warm, but not TOO warm (there is such thing), the dexterity is unparalleled, and the grippy palm is great for holding onto axes, ski poles, or rock. I love how easy they are to take on and off. no fumbling with straps or tight cuffs like many other gloves. They have held up 2 season without an issue.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent grip I had similar gloves from BD in the past and these are an improved version of the earlier models. I wear them to ice climb and as before, they provide a high degree of dexterity and protection, without being overly bulky. I try to climb with thinner gloves if I can, but if it cold the Impulse gloves are just perfect and still allow for a firm hold of the tools, plus great protection to my hands.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great glove for all around ski days I have had 2 pairs of these gloves and love them, the leather is fantastic and hold onto snow covered skis better then any other glove. The fit is great and the updated cuff is even better on my second pair. I wear these gloves prob 100 days a year between skiing, mountaineering and ice climbing. They work will with ropes and climbing tools. I usually chose these as my mild temp ice climbing gloves.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great skinning glove This is my second pair. Really like the dexterity, sticky leather and level of insulation. My hands get cold very easily - these are great on the skin track. I swap for mittens on the downhill and keep these in my jacket for lap 2+.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Given the price, they fail to deliver The fingers are uncomfortably far apart and the gloves aren't very warm in the temperature they are rated to. These were recomended to me by the sales staff for fetching keys out of pockets and fine motor skills. In that respect they don't work as advertised. I returned them.
