How-to Video: Fitting Black Diamond Gloves and Mitts

Absolute Mitts is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 29.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from A very good mitt These are very warm mitts. My wife used them in temperatures of -31C on a snowmobile (at 40 mph plus, so could add windchill to that) in Arctic Sweden and had nice warm hands throughout the 4 h trip. The lobster claw design of the inner isn't a problem as you don't need to use it and can have all fingers together if you want. The mitts are a generous fit and and inner can be used easily. Yes, they are bulky, but no bulkier than similar very cold weather / high altitude mitts from other manufactures.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent mitt Great mitt for arctic conditions no issues in 40 below conditions. I dont understand why the liner is a lobster glove while the shell is a mitten. But still great either way.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Ridiculously large, but also ridiculously warm They are so large (I bought the XS) that I can't do anything with them. But they are very warm so I'm keeping them for those late night search and rescue calls.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Doubtful because of the reviews .... no doubts now I purchased this glove for snowboarding and winter trekking and climbing when the days get cold. I tested it in Keystone, CO, during one of the winter storms they had. We set out in zero degree temps at the base of the mountain, and it was subzero temps at the mountain top. My hands were sweating throughout the day, so much so that I had to intermittently remove my gloves in order to cool my hands off. These gloves are everything I hoped they would be. I have no issues with the dexterity and the three finger inner glove makes buckling my board with the gloves on a snap. Glad I bought these!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Gloves Amazing gloves! These are bomb proof winter gloves... I used them for skiing in -20 °F at a resort. I was a bit concerned about warmth factor... but I was able to take my hands out and snap a few photos then put them back into the gloves and still be warm! They are however very bulky... I had some trouble getting my hand through the pole straps but I'm okay with that trade off and not getting frost bite. They may be overkill for some people thinking they want the warmest glove - but if you will be harsh cold conditions this will keep you warm! And no battery so it will not interfere with your beacon!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extreme Warmth! Now I am looking forward to bitter cold weather since my fingers will no longer be frozen. I have never worn a warmer item of clothing.
