Black Diamond took the minimal approach in its design of the Terminator Glove. A woven four-way stretch shell provides durability and an unlimited range of motion while the tough goat leather palm gives you the grip you need for modern mixed and ice climbing. A waterproof breathable BDry insert keeps your hand from getting wet from the inside or out. A neoprene cuff with hook-and-loop closure keeps things tight at the wrist, and compression-molded EVA foam on the knuckles protects against impact.

nearly fatal flaw
- I've used it several times
everything about this glove is great for ice climbing; fit, dexterity, grip, etc... EXCEPT for the liner. It floats in the glove and has tendency to get bunched up (putting them on with wet or cold hands is nearly impossible). There are some scenarios where this wont matter that much, but somewhere like Ouray where you're frequently switching gloves to belay w/ something warmer, it can get incredibly frustrating.

Pricey but worth it
- I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
I was hesitant to buy ice climbing gloves because they seem thin and expensive - it was hard to believe it was worth it. But I finally did and it really does make a difference. My swing is definitely much better wearing these than my general winter gloves. Kept me warm and dry for the first two days of using them down to about 20 degrees. Pricey, but worth it if you're going to climb a lot of ice, especially for leads.
