I upgraded my ski gloves to these pair and I'm really happy I did. They keep my hands warm and the fit and fill great.

Outstanding Value

Familiarity:
I've used it several times

Bought these gloves as a mid-weight replacement for a lost pair of gloves. Excellent quality, plenty warm for what I use them for; mostly commuting and a great deal of walking outside in very cold weather. The gauntlet is a bit longer than I want, however, it does not detract from this excellent glove. Backcountry Customer Service is outstanding.

A great leather glove keeping away from a bulky typical ski glove. Comes with a Nikwax waterproofing packet. Tough lightweight glove great for resort skiing, or everyday commuting!

Awesome All Around Glove

I've put it through the wringer

Such a warm, great glove! I use these for everything from snowshoeing with the wife on cold mornings to skiing with the family at PC and Canyons. The leather has been super reliable and almost after two full seasons on them they still look like the day I bought them. Not sure if that is good or bad though, makes it hard to justify new gloves to the wife! Seriously though, can't go wrong with this glove for the price and the quality you get!

Great Glove

Familiarity:
I've used it several times

These gloves are fantastic!! Quality of construction is top of the line. As far as sizing is concerned I originally ordered a large based on reviews of medium's being too small and ended up being a hair too big for what I am using them for (similar to previous reviewer). Just got in the medium (natural color) and they are an absolutely perfect fit. With that being said I had ordered a medium size in black and they were way too small.. I am 6' 180 pounds. Seems as though (like with most leather products) there is inconsistency in sizing, if you find the correct size these are some of the best gloves i have found for ice climbing and winter mountaineering (warm enough with activity down to 10 degrees or so..)

Super Everything Glove

Familiarity:
I've used it several times

I bought these for every day use from walking the dog, taking out the garbage, driving, and throwing snowballs. So far after a few uses I love them!!! Super soft inside and a durable leather outside. These are the best "Do Everything" glove that I've stumbled upon! As far as sizing goes, I would say they run a bit tight. I would say I have average size hands for being 5'10" 165, therefore I am pretty much a medium in everything for clothing. But I definitely prefer the Larges in most BD gloves.

Well constructed and warm

I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

I bought these as a birthday gift for my brother, and he loves them. He says: These gloves are great for driving in or wearing when participating in winter activities though they aren't very thick what insulation they have is more than sufficient when being worn on cold winter days and nights. The build quality is also good. The leather construction brings a work glove aesthetic that matches well with any jacket you may own. Would highly recommend these as a primary winter glove.
