Equipped with PrimaLoft One insulation and Polartec fleece, the Guide Finger Mitten is Black Diamond's warmest pro-level ski glove. Gore-Tex XCR gives this glove guaranteed waterproof breathable protection, and the woven nylon shell has a 4-way stretch for a full range of motion. Black Diamond split the middle of the Guide in order to provide extra dexterity, without limiting the warmth you'd expect out of this mitten. Goat leather gives the palm a good grip, and EVA foam protects your knuckles from harsh impacts.

Good Mitten with Removable liner

  • Familiarity:I've used it several times

I like this mitten. It is really warm on those cold days.

With the liner in, there is a noticeable loss in dexterity. Having said that, I believe BD says these glove work down to -20 F, although I have not personally tested it. More times than not, I actually remover the liner and use the leather shell with my BD Pilot gloves. This keeps my hands comfortably warm at 0F, and has better dexterity than the stock line. On the really cold days, the stock liner will be a lot warmer than using my Pilot gloves as a pseudo liner.

Bottom line, this is a good shell and liner combo Mitten. The shell can also fit over a thin glove or liner for added temperature versatility.


These Mitts Rock

  • Familiarity:I've used it several times

I bought a pair of lobster claw mitts last year from Marmot (ultimate ski mitt). Initially I liked them but my hands got cold on frosty days, there was no liner to remove, and no snot wipe area on the thumb, also after a year the insulation seemed to pack down quite a bit so now I feel like they are spring ski gloves. So I bought a pair of these BD mitts and I love them. The insulation is super thick and comfortable, the liners are removable for faster drying at night, there is a patch of soft fiber on the thumb for snot, and they are crazy warm. My hands get cold pretty easily and these things keep them warm down below zero.


Very warm 3-finger

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

I'm a downhill skier. Earlier this year, on a moderately cold day (-10C), I tried the Hestra Heli 3-Finger, and it didn't cut it at all. My hands were colder in those than in a pair of cheap 5-finger gordini gloves. I returned the Hestra Heli 3-finger. I recently bought the Black Diamond Guide Finger Mitten, and I wore them on a very cold day (-20C), and my fingers were warm the whole time. I also wore them more recently on a day of warmer skiing (0C), and they were too warm. So now I pack two pairs of gloves. I have some 5-finger hestra fall line gloves for warmer days, and I use the Black Diamond Guide 3-Finger Mitten on colder days. The only thing that would be warmer than this mitten is a big bulky down-filled expedition mitten.


Warm Mitt

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

Good warm mit. Its a nice setup with a down liner and waterproof shell. The claw design is great for snowmobiling.
