Great Backcountry Touring Glove

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

The Black Diamond Arc is a great lightweight, waterproof and slightly insulated glove for Backcountry Touring. I really like the Pittards Oil Tac leather palms - the same material found in NFL receivers' gloves - they provide amazing grip on the poles when skinning. The light insulation is enough to keep my hands warm on the skin up - if it's super cold, I'll bring a pair of warmer ski gloves for the descent. Definitely recommended.
