Nothing Like It!
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
I've been looking for a well insulated/water-resist glove, and this is the one! Can't say to much on performance since I just received it, but I can see myself using it for spring ski days, cold morning commutes and camping trips. Black Diamond does a great job with how their gloves perform in different weather conditions. This glove was rated 15-40 degrees F. I run warmer so I can see myself wearing this gloves in colder conditions. I normally wear a size medium in Black Diamond but for an efficient cut I'm glad I purchased a small. There is still plenty of room to be comfortable!
A Decadent Sleeping Bag for Your Hand
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
These are COZY! From just putting them on inside my house to the winter winds of the Wasatch, these have kept my mitts at a most comfortable temperature through it all.
My one beef with these glorious duders is the general lack of dexterity. It's a bit like trying to scratch that one spot on your back while wearing a very puffy jacket.
