Black Diamond says that this glove is rated to -40. Absolutely not. I ski at Schweitzer Mountain in North Idaho where it is not nearly as cold as AK or CO. It is usually wet and windy. I bought these gloves because I got frostnip last year due to inadequate gloves. These seemed to fit the mold for what I was looking for in a glove. They are rated to 10 degrees at best. Do not buy this glove unless you have a really high metabolism and produce a large amount of body heat or ski in regular, moderate conditions. The reason I give these gloves three stars instead of one is that they perform fantastically on regular days. They ventilate very well and being able to remove the liner is a very nice feature. They are a great glove. Just not rated to -40 as black diamond claims.
