Black Diamond Guide Gloves
January 25, 2011
Temperatures in northern New Hampshire over the Martin Luther King Day weekend were in the low single digits, and these gloves definitely made the experience more comfortable on the ski slopes. At first, I was afraid they might be too warm, but they're ideal for sub-zero temperatures and well-made, without some of the straps, zippers and other bells & whistles on ski gloves that you really don't need. They aren't cheap but I've had less expensive gloves fall apart at the seams. By all accounts, the Guide gloves looks like they'll last.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance, warmth, Cons: Cost
Best ski glove I've ever owned

Fantastic glove pretty much the warmest glove you can buy, the wool liner is very thick and does not itch, and i'm usually senstive to wool. The double leather palm is very durable and should last a very long time. Overall very good value probably a glove you'll have for 10 years
worth every penny

In the past I've used 2 glove liners underneath my gloves to try to keep my hands warm. With these Black Diamond gloves, I don't need anything else. Easy on, easy off, I can get my bare hands out to undo zippers and access pockets, adjust gear, etc. The removable, wool liners dry incredibly fast. I'd recommend this glove to anyone that has had chronically cold hands. Oh- I'd have a back up pair of gloves for days when it's not too cold.
Versatile, durable, comfortable

Although I rarely use the very warm looking liners that come with these gloves, I have a lot of experience with the shells and they are tough to beat. Although the shells are not completely waterproof (the Gore-Tex is in the liners) they're fairly water resistant and they breath well. While the liners that come with the gloves attach to the shells with velcro, the shells can be taken on and off without removing most other liners. This can be a little less convenient when you want to put on the inner and outer gloves as a unit, but is nice when you want to make quick adjustments in dexterity/warmth/protection. Strap and buckle at wrist instead of elastic might be nice for use alone or with very light inner gloves, but I haven't had a problem with them sliding off.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever, Performance, Ease of use

Soft on the inside, hard on the outside; this glove is amazing in all conditions.

I have suffered through many days with cold hands so finally invested in a good pair of glove. The guide gloves are great. They are toasty warm for the cold days. Full fingers are excellent for the back country - taking skins on and off, getting things out of the pack etc. They look well made, hopefully will last many seasons!Pros: Great design, Build quality, Ease of use
Excellent Warmth and Fit

Purchased these gloves for an alpine Summer climb however they are also excellent in providing warmth for skiing and shoveling the driveway. The pull-out wool liner is attached to the shell via velcro and provides a secure barrier so snow will not get trapped between the liner and the outer shell. They can be a little stiff initially however the outer shell breaks in quickly. Glove has a very nice long wrist protector that can be tightened so snow does not travel into the glove. Spoke to Black Diamond about changing out the wool liner with something lighter if the need arises and they said that any lightweight fleece liner will work perfectly inside the outer shell. A local retailer employee told me the same thing. So get these gloves for super warmth all-around winter wear and pick up a pair of lightweight fleece liners for those days when it is not super cold. Got rid of my Head ski gloves and now only use these - these are the cadillac of winter gloves with a removable liner! A little pricey but well worth the money in the long run.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance, Ease of use, Great value, Cons: Cost
