Versatile innovation for the year-round alpinists.
The Mercury Mitten is Black Diamond's most versatile and popular year-round mitt for skiers, climbers, and alpinists. Remove the liner for summer expeditions, and keep the two together for winter climbs. A BDry insert gives this mitten exceptional waterproof protection, and the removable liner's innovative PrimaLoft Gold synthetic insulation feels and compresses like down yet protects your hand with long-lasting water-resistance.
Pertex Shield also assists with waterproofing as well as providing a four-way stretch for freedom of movement. The Mercury also features a goat leather palm for a good grip, Kevlar stitching for durable reinforcement, and a split finger design that give the removable liner more dexterity.

- Q & A
Damn Global Warming
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
I had a winter climb planned for March in North East, but the climate has decided that March should no longer be cold enough to require gloves.
Fit and finish is fantastic. I am sure they will live up to their reputation
You'll never need another....
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I have poor circulation when I comes to my fingers and my toes in the cold weather seasons. I have dealt with tears while thawing out. I was in search of the warmest gloves on the market and after reading plenty of reviews I went for it with the Mercury Mitten. I can say with confidence my fingers will never be cold again. The fit is spot on. Great gloves that I would def recommend.
Finally...my hands are warm!
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I have tried many brands of gloves before finally succumbing and going the "lobster claw" route. But I am glad I did. My hands were the only part of my body that I could not keep warm until now. These mitts have come through and I highly recommended them!
