We run gear into the ground winter after winter, and we wear this glove—it's guaranteed not to disappoint.

  • Wrist cinch cuff closure

Excellent gloves for spring

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I really like these gloves for warmer conditions. I do think you need to be careful depending on your hands from using them when temperature is below 20 degrees but otherwise they are great, more flexible then you might think. Plenty waterproof.

Is there a waterproof membrane in these gloves? Or is the leather just "waterproof"

Responded on

Robby, Ive used this glove and its just waterproof leather. If your hand is in the snow all day, your definitely going to have wet hands. Found it to be an awesome lite winter glove, thicker than a liner but, not a Black Diamond Guide.

If you have anymore questions feel free to send me an email or call!

What do people think about the fit of these gloves (in terms of finger length)? I have relatively shorter fingers, and some brands have fingers that are too long for me (e.g. Mountain Hardwear); Black Diamond usually fits me well. Any feedback on this? Can't easily try before you buy with these.

Responded on

I have a smaller hand and the medium works just fine. You have to buy before you try them on but, the only risk is having to go to UPS yourself to drop them off. We would even cover the cost of return shipping for a instance such as this.

Great glove

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Purchased these gloves as a go to winter/cold weather working/driving/around town glove and for skiing on warmer spring days.

I use a pair of Hestra Heli-ski gloves as my go to ski gloves for any weather under 30F, however I had a chance to use these on a few warmer days a few weeks back and they preformed excellent. A few times I had to remove them because I was getting too warm.

Warmth- Great when active, if you sit for a while you might get cold fingers but just keep em moving ya turkey!

Fit - Went with the L, after a few weeks they'll break in and soften up, at first are a little stiff but work em in and they'll be soft like butter.

Style - Received many compliments on these. I especially like the lack of branding sans the backcountry.com stamp/imprint on the posterior R side of each glove (which is sick, who doesn't love the goat??). I find the wrist clinch cuff closure does not work too well, but I have had no issues of cold air/snow leaking into the glove from the cuff.

I do notice the leather will dry out if you let them get wet and then allow them to dry, so remember to put some leather balm on there (Hestra make some, others out there too) every so often to keep them supple and help with water resistance. I've used them in some pretty wet conditions (heavy snow, snow/rain mix) and my hands have never gotten wet, but I still wouldn't call them waterproof as they are made of leather. Also, it lists a microsuede nose wipe, but I can't seem to find that one my pair at all, thats what your sleeve is for anyway right?

Overall solid, and for the price point you would be a fool to not consider these.

wasatch glove

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I purchased these gloves about 1 month ago and find them not up to the job. I use them primarily for skiing and they do not keep fingers warm in temp below 25 degrees. I do not generally have problems with cold hands. They appear to be well made and look good , but they simply don't work. They are just ok for around town, but not any semi-serious cold weather use.

Great Warm Glove

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Gloves were great. People said that they didnt like the thumb, but after breaking them in they worked just fine. I am buying a second pair in a different color

Stylin gloves

A little snug at first but fit improved after a few days of skiing and snow shoveling. Very comfortable now. Thumb has a contour design into the palm making for a natural grip of a ski pole. Warm lining.

Nice and warm.

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I have used these out in about 20F weather so far and have been very happy with the warmth. After 4 hours of snowboarding, they where still very warm. A little on the bulky side and run just a bit small based on the size chart though.

warm and comfy

Ive used these for snowmobiling and riding my motorcycle during the winter. They are crazy warm and comfy!

Quality gloves

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I bought this gloves to work as a deckhand on a sailing boat in Greenland. They are rugged and after working with lines and salty water for a whole week, they remained in good shape.

At one point I wore wool gloves with open finger tips as a base layer, when the temperature dropped (33 F) and I had to be on my four hour shift on the deck at night. It kept my hands really warm then. In order to maintain the leather and to regain water repellence, I recently treated the gloves with wax. They look like new again.

Odd Thumb Stitching

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

This glove seems warm and is very comfortable...except for the odd fitting thumb. After only reading one review stating that the thumb was stitched wrong amongst many great reviews, I figured the reviewer just had strange anatomy. However, I had the same problem as did my roommate when he tried it on. I am returning this item because this stitching problem limits dexterity and just feels plain awkward. Its a shame because it feels like a great glove otherwise.

Just wanted to know, if I look at the size scale, it tells to measure from the bottom of the wrist, but really, to have the good size, is it right under the hand or a little under? Stupid question, i konw, but the scale is not that very precise...

Best Answer Responded on

Well measuring from the bottom of the wrist gives you a pretty good idea of what size you should be in. If you are in between sizes people generally tend to choose he smaller of the two to ensure good dexterity. You could always try both sizes and then choose which one you want. We will provide a free UPS return label to get one back to us.

Good quality glove

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Gloves are a bit stouter and larger than pic makes them look. Nice reinforced palm lining. Lots of insulation in back of glove. Strap tightens nicely on wrist and they are longer in the wrist than they look so they'll go under sleeve of jacket or coat. Haven't had chance to cold-test them but I'm sure they'll be just fine!

This year XL is smaller than 2 years ago

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I got one pair 2 years ago. I liked them a lot and order another pair this year of the same size for my son. They were significantly smaller than my original pair - had to return it.

Simple yet satisfying

Nice hardy glove to use for pretty much anything- winter driving, working and of course skiing. It took me a little time to wear these in but after a week or so they were comfortable. I use them as my back up glove when I'm out touring.

Warm

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

These gloves are very warm. I treated them with nikwax for skiing and they are great. I will say that I got a large as the sizing chart would indicate and I think I should have gotten a medium...

Warm, good for paragliding

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I needed gloves to keep my fingers warm while soaring my speed wing on cool days. They also need enough dexterity that I can safely handle my wing on the ground. These gloves are perfect.

Great, warm, thick glove

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have the Stoic version of these, but will add my 2 cents anyway.... I have used the hell out of these over the last 2 years. I treated them a few times with snow seal and they have kept dry well. I have used them for skiing, snowboarding, driving, camping, flipping steaks on a grill, picking up dog crap (and being able to tie a knot in the bag with the gloves on) and just about every other activity that can be done in the cold. They are comfortable, kind of thick (thicker than the Paragons or Forges) and most importantly - warm. Durable as well. No fraying, rips or malfunctions. Just good gloves!

Quality

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Very impressed with these gloves, they are much higher quality than i expected, and will be ordering more. They held up well on the summit of big sky, and it was in the negatives for the 2 weeks i was there. Still not sure of the longevity, but they seem built to last.

Strange Fitting Thumb

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Just received my Wasatch gloves. I order two pairs, one in black and one in honey. The quality seems quite good, with high quality leather, well stitched seams, and reinforcements in all the right places. The only odd thing is the fit of the thumb, which is too short and intersects the palm too high up (i.e. closer to the fingers than the natural cradle of the thumb joint). My hope is that with a little wear, they will stretch to accommodate my anatomy. I will post again once I've put in some time with them on the hill.
