- Q & A
Perfect Mid-Weather glove!
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: Runs small
- Size Bought: Small
I love these gloves, they are perfect for the day when it isn't a blizzard outside. I would recommend these for any use! I use them mostly for snowboarding. They are nice because it is easy to wear your liners with them, the pinky finger of your glove does not come out with your liner! SIZE UP! These gloves run small!
Awesome gloves, Tiny sizes
- Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
- Fit: Runs small
- Size Bought: Medium and Large
I ordered a Medium and Large so see what would fit best. My first impression of the gloves was that they seem really well constructed. (I'd hope so for the price tag) The boiled wool liner is way thicker on the top of your hand and very comfortable. The liner stays in the shell really well (due the cuff of Velcro), so you would never pull them out unintentionally.
My only problem is that the Large is still too small! I could hardly fit my hand in the Medium. Come on Black Diamond! I am a regular 5'8' 130lb athletic lady. Were these even tested on real women? My across the knuckle measurement on my dominant hand is 19cm/7.5'', at least make an XL.
