Brent J.wrote a review of Black Diamond Guide Finger Mitten on February 16, 2018
Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Ever freeze your butt skiing? Ever notice however, it's usually your hands and feet that get cold first? Mine do. That's why I ordered the Black Diamond guide mittens. I used them last year for 40 trips downhill skiing and another 10 this year. There were days in minus temps and days my entire clothing was sheathed in ice at Schweitzer, Baker and Bachelor. My feet got cold, but not my hands. Apply a coat of Nikwax. The leather will thank you. I normally wear a large mens glove. The large fit me, but the XL could have worked under duress. I'm 5ft 8in and 175 lbs and I currently ski, although I have snowboarded, telemarked and XC skied as well. PS the index finger stayed warm separated from the other 3 and closes car doors and hatches easier than mittens.
