The waterproof shell can be used alone on warmer days, while the PrimaLoft Gold insulation in the liner dries quickly and insulates even when wet. The Kevlar®-reinforced goat leather palm stands up to rocky terrain and the rigors of rappelling.

How-to Video: Fitting Black Diamond Gloves and Mitts

Soloist Gloves is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 22.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from New Features with redesign The previous version of this glove had the Pertex/BDry material sewn into the shell interior for moisture protection and added warmth. The feature allowed for a wider range of use with the uncovered Primaloft liner removed. The new version has moved the BDry layer to the outside of the Primaloft liner. As a result the outer shell is less moisture proof and less functional than in previous versions and a modular glove should maintain maximum functionality. A 'minor' yet important design change and why I would no longer give 5 star rating.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from High quality - keeping your hands warm High quality product. You can see and feel this as soon as you open the package. Straight and accurate stitches, high quality materials. Today we hit -17C and I can tell you as I tried them (they were purchased as a gift for my father in law but I was curious to check them out as well) they kept my hands very comfortable and warm. Highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nothing but the best from Black Diamond I have not been able to use these much yet, but so far they are just fine. Toasty warm. I like the nose wipes on these and on the mercury mitts which I also have. The mercury mitts which I have had for several years, have been wonderful for a guy who gets cold hands easily. The soloist gloves appear to be of the same quality and maybe even warmer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great features and very function glove. I’ve used the Soloist glove extensively for both resort and backcountry skiing in Japan and found it to be a very good glove in terms of warmth and dexterity. It performs extremely well in very cold temperatures. In terms of durability the glove’s material has performed really well, except for the noise wipe material on the top of the thumb. This has broken down making the upper part of the thumb area exposed to moisture penetration. This is the only fault l have found with this glove. If Black Diamond fixes this issue then l would give this glove a 10 out of 10 score.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really, really WARM! Fantastic gloves!! I purchased both these and the Soloist finger-gloves. Each are fantastic so far. I have frost bitten 3 of my fingers mountaineering, and finding gloves that are warm enough has been a real problem. These are the warmest gloves I’ve ever put on. They are comfortable, waterproof, and have really great dexterity. The leather across the palm, and doubled in the thumb area, are real assets. They grip ice ax, trekking / skiing poles well. I strongly recommend these.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding gloves I’ve had these gloves for 2 weeks now. I use these gloves in a walk-in freezer and I’m amazed how well they keep my hands warm. I would recommend these gloves to anyone.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from First Test Used these on a new year’s attempt of Eldorado peak in the North Cascades. They were way to warm for the 20 F bushwhack and steep snow wallowing on the approach, I removed the liners and used just the shell to protect hands from snow and devil’s club and while grabbing slide alder and they help up well. They worked great with liners in at camp and on the ski out next morning. They were still too warm actually and the liners got damp from sweat, but dried quickly when I took the shell off during a snack break. Can’t wait to use them in colder conditions they we designed for.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Warm gloves I just used these gloves for the first time skiing this season. They felt warm and comfortable. The were dexterous enough to go ice climbing which is why I bought them. These were purchased to replace another B/D model which was discontinued. I was very pleased with that model and was disappointed when they were not available. However they served me well over many years of ice climbing and skiing. These soloist gloves appear to be filling that spot. Even the wrist adjustment seems to be helping keep my hands stay warm.. I was a bit apprehensive about those wrist tabs at first. After using them I now fully understand their function. The removable liner is a big plus for me as the gloves dry much quicker when the liner is removed. The soloist glove has all the features that I look for in a glove that I plan to have for a long time. The sizing is true to the size. Totally pleased with these gloves ! Pete
