Crank in comfort.
Black Diamond created the ultralight Torque Ice Glove for ice, mixed, and dry-tool climbing on the most demanding pitches on earth.

Not Warm, Uncomfortable Seams
Fit: I've got smallish hands that fit well in a Hestra size 8, but the size small BD glove is still too long in the fingers. Seams: I first wore these while ski touring, and there's a seam at the base of the thumb that started to irritate my skin pretty bad. Warmth: I know these are ultra-light gloves, but I didn't expect to get the barfies while touring in 25 degree weather. The Good: On the bright side, I really like the knuckle padding and the palms / fingers are extremely grippy on ice tools / ski poles. I have a pair of liner gloves I'm going to try with these since I've got the room, and I think that should solve all of my problems.
