If you regularly deal with brutal single-digit temps or suffer from chronically cold hands when you're on the hill, Black Diamond had you in mind when it designed the Men's Cayenne Glove. It's got more tech than you ever though possible in a glove, starting with an integrated three-level glove heating system, which runs on two rechargeable batteries and uses flexible heat tape around and on top of the fingers to keep your hands feeling like they're sitting in a hot tub, no matter how rugged the weather gets. There's traditional PrimaLoft One insulation packed in there too, inside a waterproof Gore-Tex XCR membrane that will keep you dry even if you stir your lunchtime soup with your fingers. The Cayenne is delicate showpiece either, courtesy of a tough four-way stretch nylon shell and goat leather double-palm that'll hold up to pole handles, ski edges, and rogue branches that try to poke holes in all your gear.

  • Integrated 3-level battery-powered heating system can switch on/off
  • Runs on 2 rechargeable lithium-polymer batteries
  • 142g PrimaLoft insulation
  • Waterproof Gore-Tex XCR membrane
  • 4-way stretch nylon shell
  • Goat leather palm and palm patch

Not Bad...

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

Yup, they work. My only beef would be that the high setting seems to only last 3-4 hours. You will want to keep on 1 or 2 if you are at the resort all day. The fit is right on and they are easy to turn on and adjust.

Great until they fail.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I loved these gloves when I got a pair last year. They lasted about 2 months before the wiring failed and one glove would not hold the connection to heat. So I was VERY careful with the second pair of last year's model, but they failed even quicker.
I love BD and assumed they would solve these problems. So this year's model looks like the wiring works because the lights work, however no heat is being delivered to the glove. Sigh.
I am returning these and waiting to see what Outdoor Research comes up with next year.
Even if yours work, I would bring some backup if you are venturing out into the backcountry.

I hate cold hands

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

A few things I needed these gloves to do in order to not lose feeling in my fingers - they need to stay dry, have room to wiggle, and the heating elements need to work. Check on all of these. They're pretty burly gloves, but I bought them for winter cycling ,if you can believe it...and they work.

Cayenne gloves break down

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

I've had five pairs of these gloves. Each time, one glove or the other stops working and I have to return them. First pair lasted a month. Second pair lasted a year. Last two pairs went bad early on.

I use them for cycling (all winter) and skiing (lately only about a week each year).
When they work, they are pretty good. For someone who suffers from Reynaud's syndrome, they are good, not great. Below -5C, you're still likely to have trouble on low settings, and you'll have limited time on higher settings. And the maker WILL NOT sell you an extra set of batteries (believe me, I tried), so forget charging two sets and changing on the fly.

Best gift a father could ask for

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

I bought these gloves for my dad who is doing a glacier ski trip in Switzerland later this season. He'll never admit this, but his hands are always cold. I went ahead and snagged this pair of gloves and he is ecstatic. They work great and are more than warm. 100% read the psot below about the Euro and US prongs. It confused my dad enough that he had to call BD.

Euro/US adapter???

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

Here is some good info about this gloves adapter...The gloves come stock w/ the Euro plug. You need to remove that piece and underneath are the US prongs. You just need to slip the Euro plug upwards until it comes off and then the US plus is there. Locate the word ?push? and push in the direction of the arrows. This will take a little bit of force but it will disengage the European prongs.
Hopefully this helps! These are great gloves!

Which gloves are warmer, Black Diamond...

Which gloves are warmer, Black Diamond Cayenne or Black Diamond Guide?

Responded on

The BD Guide is going to naturally be a very warm glove and would probably beat out the BD Cayenne if not for the Cayenne's 3 level battery powered heating system. The Cayene doesn't just keep your hands out of the cold, it also offers them a cup of cocoa and place by the fire.

on a full charge how long dose the glove...

on a full charge how long dose the glove keep your hands warm ? total time , would that be on the highest setting ?

Best Answer Responded on

On a full charge it will give you about 10 hours with 3-level heating system that lets you dial in the perfect amount of heat for any condition.

Responded on

On level one 8 - 10 hours. Level two 4-6 hours. Level three 2 - 3 hours. These are great gloves until the battery runs out. Make sure you have backup mittens and hand warmer packets if you are going long.
