A frontcountry glove that places a premium on protecting your hands from the cold and wet of winter, the Legend Glove by Black Diamond will make you a believer. Soft, PrimaLoft insulation keeps fingers and hands warm on numbing days and continues to insulate, even when wet. The four-way stretch shell fabric accentuates dexterity and resists abrasion; it features foam knuckle pads for protection from whatever comes in your way. Leather palms and fingers increase durability and provide a secure grip on poles and ice tools. Includes Gore-Tex with XCR Product Technology inserts for highly waterproof and breathable protection, and is designed to be worn under the cuff.

"Like the Style, but is not effective as a glove"
I really liked the color and style of this glove, but when I actually had to use it for what it was made for it failed. This glove is supposedly rated for temps as cold as -15 degrees which is totally false in my experience. The first time I used it I was skiing in 40 deg temps and it was hot. This was expected, but the second time I used them it was 10 deg and my fingers were frozen. I kept pulling my fingers out of the finger holes to warm them up. I used them again where the weather was in the low 30's and my fingers were cold again. Im disappointed with Black diamond because I know they usually make excellent gear. I would not recommend these gloves as they do not keep your fingers warm.
