A versatile and rugged mitt for any cold-weather excursion.
When the you-know-what starts dropping, your boogers start freezing in your nose, and your breath turns to rime on your face, it's time for the Black Diamond Mercury Women's Mitten. Black Diamond's most popular mitt, the Mercury has everything you need in a real all-rounder, with a BDry waterproof insert, removable split-finger fleece liner, and goat leather palm that provides great grip on ski poles, ropes, and even ice axes. To keep the screaming barfies at bay, BD also packed the Mercury full of Primaloft insulation, which will keep heat close to your fingers even if it gets soggy. It shouldn't, though, because the wrist cinch and drawcord gauntlet will make sure no snow sneaks in, and the Kevlar palm stitching will help you enjoy seasons of leak-proof durability.

- Q & A
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
I got these gloves for a friend of mine and she loves them! It's hard to find a glove that's rated to -40 and these gloves are super toasty. I even put my hand in them and with the insulation/ linear you get the best glove for the coldest of conditions. They might even be a little too warm for 30 degree ski days. You may loose the dexterity of a full finger glove but if warmth is your priority than these are the ones!

Very warm, semi-bulky but so worth it on those extra chilly days. My hands are usually frozen by the second run and I cant believe that they lasted for hours without feeling the cold winter nip!
Do these have taped/sealed seams? Thank you.
