Warm leather glove

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

These are some of the warmest leather gloves I've found, the materials are pretty good, I had tried the virago before those in medium, they were cold and tight, so I got the legend in large [according to BD size chart I'm a medium],got the last pair I could find both in store & online. The 2 glove are different sizes, the right glove palm is wider than the left by 1/4 inche, the 2 center fingers are wider than the left by 3/16", so I'm blaming it on the fact that I got the last pair "on the market". Would have gladly given it 5 stars without that glitch. The gloves have been used to work outside [in wisconsin] in minus temps during cold spell,in high winds for over 3 hours at the time, did add liners with the gloves during that time, when I would normally wear expedition mittens, they performed very well, I wasn't hot ,but wasn't cold either, cant wait to use those skiing.

I'm on pair Three

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I bought the original BD Legend Glove years ago (like 7 or 8 years ago). They were the warmest and most waterproof glove that I've ever worn. They also lasted me a good 4 years and while they packed out and got a little colder, they were still my Goto Glove. I now have two seasons on the 2nd generation, which I feel just as strongly about. While I've watched friends blow through a couple of hestras and "Patroller" gloves from other major manufacturers, my legends have held up much better. Now I've gotten these for Christmas. They are beautiful gloves. The only challenge; I'll wear my last ones for another year or two before i need these. I'll wax them to keep them soft and break them out when they're finally needed.

Just what I was looking for

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

I wore these skiing in 10-28 degree F weather. They work as advertised. Nice under the cuff fit that works most excellent with my OR Axcess jacket. Easy on and off. Nice flexibility with minimal to no break in. Some moisture accumulates on the inside but my hands were always warm and comfortable. Construction seems to be excellent with lots of double stitching. Only gripe is the leash is too short. I swapped it out for the one on my outgoing glove. Much cheaper than comparable Hestra glove.

Update: I used these gloves all last winter from -30 to 30F. Not one complaint after I switched leash out. Still look new. They are warm. Use something lighter for warm days. Stay at 4 stars for leash being too short for my preferences.

Very warm, good dexterity

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

Havent been able to use them a lot yet, but was at Killington and it was wicked cold, but my hands stayed warm the whole day. I have Raynauds in my hands (poor circulation so my hands are always cold), and these gloves were able to keep the cold out. This is the first pair of ski gloves Ive owned that were able to do that.

These gloves are very comfy and had above average dexterity (could zip up my coat, unbuckle helmet, boots, etc with gloves on, no problem). They also look awesome.

My one dislike is that I accidentally pulled the cuff strap (which I read *not* to do in a review here but forgot), and it tore the seam a tiny bit. It wont damage the function of the gloves at all, and it was 100% user error as I knew I shouldnt do that, so no fault o f the gloves. Just make sure you dont pull that strap while pulling the gloves on.

Initial Impressions - LEGENDary

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

I'm going to start with my minor gripes. When I make a fist with these gloves on, there are a couple points on my pointer and middle finger that feel some pressure and it's a little uncomfortable. I'm sure breaking these in more will help. Also, these are really stiff out of the box. However, they get better. They aren't the most dexterous things in the world (7/10 IMO), but I can still open zippers, buckle boots, and stuff like that, but I can't use my point-and-shoot camera.
Now, the good stuff. These gloves are impressively warm. I was fine at 15 degrees, just hanging out (not active). I've never really had too much trouble with sweaty hands so I can't really attest to any sort of breathability, but they do get a little wet from sweat. They also seem really durable. I'm sure an average user could get at least 3 seasons out of these. A huge plus for me was how waterproof these are. I often find myself in slushy/wet conditions and knowing that my hands aren't getting wet is awesome. I held these in a bucket of water for a couple minutes and didn't feel a bit wet.

Cool Features:
I really like the undercuff look/feel and how the undercuff can cinch up with the velcro. The neoprene cuff feels nice on the skin.
The thumb has some softer material on it; I use my left glove as a goggle wipe and my right glove as my nose wipe.
They look cool.
Overall, this is a great glove for me!

That I still have my fingers is a...

a.) Fluke?
b.) Miracle?
c.) End result of a frigid game of chance?
d.) Testament to the practical efficacy of the BD Legend?
e.) A combo of all the above?

Gonna go with "d.)" and add the caveat; " with good weather". (sort of).

The glove in this photo is not the most recent rev of the model, but it really hasn't changed all that much in the big scheme of things.
That big scheme can be defined as "you can wear this glove on the summit of Denali, depending on what the Weather Gods decide to do. (and other factors)"
Not that I recommend that, of course. (every one of my 7 finger-tips peeled for a month...)
I wore them on the top of Aconcagua, too.
(Just kidding, I actually have all 9 fingers.)

Morbid jokes aside, I love these gloves.
I've worn them in some pretty extreme conditions, probably a bit more extreme than they were intended for, and for the most part, they have kept me comfortable (in a relative way, of course.)
I've worn them on Whitney in the winter, Rainier in the Summer and Fall, in the Andes, AK Range, Wasatch...
I've found them to be as waterproof as one would expect a waterproof glove would be. That is, you can dig around in the snow for extended periods of time and the only moisture you feel is what you're manufacturing on the inside...
They don't breath well, but that would be like expecting a double plastic mountaineering boot to breath well.
Mine are 4 years old and are showing no signs of wear, but I'm tempted to try out these new ones. Mine don't have leather shell tops, only the palms.

Unless you're planning on spending weeks on-end above 15K feet, you'll probably love these things. And even if you are planning to, you'll probably love them, just also plan on doing lots of arm swings.
I believe their intended purpose is for FC/BC powder-planking, but I can still make a fully-intact shadow-puppet eagle, so they work for other stuff too.

(Also..."goat-skin shell and palm" = disturbing cannibalistic irony...)

Awesome review, yet again Brandon!
We want a picture of the fully-intact-shadow-puppet eagle!!!
