    Awesome Gloves, so Warm!

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

    I really wanted a warm pair of gloves for skiing as my hands tend to run cold. These gloves were just what I needed. They are breaking in more and more as i use them and are very comfortable. The wool liner on the insert is a nice touch. Great pair of gloves, would really recommend.

    Legit

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I mainly use these gloves for snowboarding Utah's Wasatch and they have never once disappointed. They are warm, and after the initial break in, they are quite flexible. Glad they finally offer a black color. I'll be coming back for another pair as soon as these are worn out-which looks likt it may be a few seasons. These are legit.

    Perfect Glove For Ice

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Large

    I have used this glove for mainly ice climbing. But I've also used this for rolling around the frozen backcountry on an ATV, and I seem to lately be lending them to my GF when she inevitably gets cold and seems to be now ill prepared.

    They are always warm. Removing the inner glove and isolating the shell and washing it is key to the longevity of this glove. Treating it with Gore-Tex sprucing products like NikWax also make this glove a joy to maintain on the rack.

    Good glove, well made

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs small

    I've used this glove for about 10 days of skiing and found them to be warm and comfortable. They're definitely well made and should last a long time. I never thought I had very big hands and usually wear a large. In this glove, I was more comfortable in an XL.

    best ski glove I have ever owned. Leather holds for 5+ years, even without proper care. The liner will eventually get packed out. All in all a fantastic product.

    amazing purchase

      I've read alot online about sizing issues - I suppose thats just a function of trying on before buying. In my case, they fit me, well like a glove. Just got back from an icy few days in vt and they kept my hands toasty despite 0 degree weather and super high speed cruising. Very happy with the purchase

      Cold

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
      • Fit: Runs large
      • Size Bought: L

      I am not a cold running temp person, but these might be the coldest gloves I've ever owned. I feel like I'm taking the temperature of my ski poles when I hold them on the lift, and even skinning I can't keep my fingers warm.

      Other than that, they're great! Seem large for their size and seemed to pack out a lot too.

      Still searching for a glove that is actually warm, ideas?

      Burly

      • Fit: True to size

      These are awesome gloves. They were purchased as an early Christmas gift for my dad along with a new pair of poles and I really wish I had the extra cash to buy myself a pair. Super waterproof and super warm and you can tell just by looking at them that the leather is going to last a long time. These are also the warmest gloves that Black Diamond makes.

      One thing to note, however, is that at first fit, they might seem a bit tight. Tight gloves can be bad because they inhibit the gloves ability to properly insulate. I ordered a large and they feel a little tight but I imagine once the liners pack out a little, they'll break in and get more flexible and a bit looser.

      Tried and True

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

      The BD guide glove is fantastic, it's been in the BD line for a few years now and they have no reason to stop producing it because it gets the job done. The over the cuff is great for those blistery days on the hill, and you get the dexterity of a glove with plenty warmth. These are great gloves and can't imagine buy another pair for a few years, because of the great quality of the leather.

      Runs small

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
      • Fit: Runs small
      • Size Bought: Extra Large

      I'm 5'6, 178lbs and the first pair of Guide gloves I received was a large and these were definitely too small. My middle finger is 3" , thumb is 2-1/4" and pinky is 2-1/2" long. I exchanged them for an extra large pair and these feel better, but even these feel a bit tight. I think I'll keep them and hope that they stretch out a bit and become more comfortable. Appear to be very well made.

      Burly!

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: Medium

      These gloves are warm, durable, burly. I have owned several pairs and have never had a chance to see when they will wear out because I lose them first. Great for ice climbing, mountaineering, and skiing. They are thick and warm but you can still easily manage a rope/belay or put in a screw. The powder cuffs go up the arm enough to work as intended. The all leather hand design prevents ropes from wearing them out and prevent material from snagging in belay devices. The only times my hands have gotten cold wearing these are when my upper body has first gotten cold. If you layer properly, these gloves are plenty warm.

      Burly!

      Frostbite

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: Runs small
      • Size Bought: Medium

      I bought this glove for a late winter ascent of Shasta. At the time of purchase I thought they would be overkill but I figured I'd use them for snow sports in the Midwest afterwards. The gloves are very well built and high quality. I didn't have a problem with the liner coming out when I removed my hands as others have. I applied conditioner and waterproofing before my trip as I noticed while playing around in the snow that the leather soaked up water.
      I climbed Shasta on an exceptionally windy day (gusts of 60mph) and sustained winds of 20-25. Single digits at at summit, exactly the type of conditions BD says these are made for. After only 30 minutes of climbing my fingers were freezing. I kept going but at each stopping point I had to take my hands out of my gloves and warm them against my body and each time I couldn't feel my fingers. BD says these gloves are rated to -20. Bull****. I ended up getting frostbite on two of my fingertips.
      Save your fingers and find a warmer glove-I returned mine and bought Outdoor Research Alti gloves.

      Great glove but not for me

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
      • Fit: True to size

      I wore this glove for three seasons and am now retiring it. Fresh out of the box this glove looked killer and bomb proof. My first impressions putting it on were that it's a bit stiff but feels warm and strong and might fit a tiny bit smaller than the average glove. I loved the piling on the inside on the back of the hand(still my favorite feature) and the removable liner was great for quick drying. The glove quickly became more flexible after a few uses. These were as waterproof as any glove I had prior and I highly recommend treating them with nikwax from time to time. I bought these because they were supposed to be the toughest and the warmest unfortunately the primaloft didn't cut it for me. I spent the last few winters doing quite a bit of quading and snowmobiling and my hands suffered minor frostbite on a number of occasions. The problem with using primaloft is that it similar to down in that it loses it's insulating abilities when compressed, which for me was most of the time.
      After I figured out what was happening I only used the gloves around the yard where I didn't have to rely on them as heavily. Eventually the stitching on the fingers gave out. At which point I super glued the seams back together and continued to use them until the leather on the index fingers wore right through. If you are not gripping things all day like I was I highly recommend them, however, if you are there probably are better options out there.

      Met Expectations

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
      • Fit: Runs small



      Bought these in hopes of not having to spend $50 to $70 each year for new ski gloves. Had the BD Guides for seven seasons now and they have held up well. Leather, stitching and Gore-Tex are in excellent shape and they have stood up to wear and use that had lesser gloves cut and busting at the seams after only one season.

      They are decently warm, but require a hand warmer on the coldest days. Did not come with a wrist lanyard which seems odd given the price and that most competitive gloves do include a lanyard. I said they "run small" but should qualify that by saying at least on me. I have the XL's and they could be a tad bigger but others may not have this issue.

      Only negative after seven seasons is the synthetic micro suede nose wipe material has flaked off. The underlying Spandex that makes up said nose wipe on the back of the thumb has begun to tear away from the leather. The rest of the glove is in such good shape it was worth having the thumbs repaired. I expect the gloves to provide several more years of service.

      I'm happy with the item and they met my expectations.

      Super solid glove.

      Overall, I really love this glove. It's super comfortable, super durable, and pretty warm. I've had it in all sorts of conditions and it really holds its own. I'm holding the 5-star rating because while it's relatively warm, I think it should be a bit warmer for how much insulation is in it, and how expensive it is. On cold days (below 20 deg) I have to wear liners underneath to keep my hands from getting cold.



      Overall, a great product (especially if you can get it on sale).

      Warm durable glove

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: True to size

      I used these on 6 ski days where the weather varied from cold & cloudy, to cold & snowy, to bluebird and 30 deg. I found the glove to be nice and warm down to the high teens, but at 15 deg and lower, I would use a liner. Glove did not get wet after an all day snow storm with wet snow late in the day. I performed the provided leather treatment before using the gloves. They are pretty stiff initially but I found the gloves relatively easy to manipulate after a couple of days of wear. I would purchase them again with the knowledge of their usable range.

      The best and warmest finger glove ever.

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
      • Fit: True to size

      I have reynauds, so I get really cold fingers, very easily. These are the warmest finger gloves I've ever used. I put some waterproofing wax on the leather (because I'm A/R), and put these to work. I've had several good ski days on them, with temps dropping down into the upper teens. Normally, that'd be mitten territory for me, but these gloves have kept my hands warm and dry--surprisingly so. The leather is pretty bomber; shows no evidence of the trees, rope-tows or rocks that they've interacted with. Thus far, I'm loving these gloves!



      Sizing is true to the size chart; I ordered a large, and they fit perfectly.



      They seem entirely waterproof to my skiing use.



      My only constructive criticism is that if your hands are moist and you pull the gloves off, the insides pull out just a smidgen, which makes it hard to put them back on with your moist hands. That's more a problem with the pinky hole than anywhere else. Not a deal breaker by any means...more of a minor annoyance. Great gloves overall, and I'm glad to have them.

      Does anyone know if these gloves have safety leashes for your wrists?
