Super warm

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size

Finally got to test these out in -15 C temps with 30 km winds. My hands were the warmest thing on my body by far. Took about 30 minutes for the glove to loosen up. After which, they felt great and gave me full confidence in my grip on my poles. Large fits like large in any other glove. A little lost on what to do with the elastic draw as it keeps getting in the way when I put my gloves on. Maybe I'll use it as an idiot strap and put it around my wrist.

How is the sizing on them?...I usually wear mittens because I have trouble finding gloves to fit my hands without rubbing on/drying out my cuticles...and sore finger tips just suck when trying to go the distance.

Depends on hand size. These have a good amount for someone who normally wears large gloves. Not too much room that you are swimming in it. I recommend bag balm for the other problem. ;)

Cold weather

  • Fit: True to size

Initial impression, this is going to be a nice COLD weather glove. I'm a die hard Kinco fan (they have quite an expanded selection) as I always know what I'm getting and always end switching back as gloves continue to fail me. On the advice of friends, I'm giving these a go. Feel great, price is great. I'll add more once it's cold!

What's the temperature range of them?

Hey Gabriel,

Gloves usually won't have a temp rating because people's bodies are so different, it's a rather subjective thing. It will depend up on gender, size, and circulation. However, these have a pretty hefty dose of Primaloft synthetic insulation and fleece, these are going to be on the warmer end of the spectrum as far as gloves go. I have 100G primaloft gloves, and they were usually too warm for all but the very coldest days here in Utah (around 15-20 degrees F). I also have pretty decent circulation and don't get cold hands too often.

If you do suffer from really cold paws, you may also want to consider a mitten, since they tend to keep hands a bit warmer than gloves as your fingers keep each other company.

Black Diamond's official website has temperature ratings listed for each glove. This particular glove is rated at -12/-1 �C, 10/30 �F.

But like Lexi said, it's subjective. I'm not sure if the ratings posted are just a result of some testing or just suggested guidelines.
