The bad: The att…

These gloves are great! Great for fast repell and also for belaying. You can move every finger quite freely and they aren't super heavy like some gloves. The full finger glove…

Black Diamond Gloves
Black Diamond is like the mayor of attention-to-detail-town when it comes to gloves. BD designs gloves that use the most awesome fabric and insulation technologies, so they're for sure gonna protect you from the elements. Black Diamond makes specific gloves to specific activities, so there's none of that one-glove-for-everybody business. I like hyphenating things today, and I spelled hyphenating right on the first try. Basically, Black Diamond has gloves for ice climbing, mountaineering, skiing, rock climbing, and cleaning your fish tank. Maybe not that last one.
First off are the Black Diamond Ice Series Gloves. They're for ice climbing, and the series includes the Black Diamond Enforcer, which has a ice tool specific pre-curved fit and articulated fingers for a sure grip. These cold weather ice climbing gloves even have padding to protect against impact at the knuckles and Gore-Tex to protect against wet ice.
Next up are Ultralight Series Gloves. These Black Diamond softshell gloves have a snug fit for extra dexterity and functionality. They're great for high-output activities like drytooling and ski touring, where you just need a little insulation and some water resistance. Check out the Black Diamond Impulse Glove or Black Diamond Pilot Glove to see what I'm talking about here.
The Black Diamond Ascent Series Gloves are where we get really serious. They're for mountaineering, alpine climbing, and winter environments where breathability and temperature regulation are crucial. Check out the Black Diamond Pursuit Glove - a softshell with a liner that basically make it three gloves in one. Or the Black Diamond Mercury Mitt - a popular year-round mitt with a trigger-finger lining for dexterity. The Black Diamond Glissade Glove is my favorite - it's so comfortable and contoured for year-round use.
The Freeride Series features every kind of ski glove you can imagine. Black Diamond ski glove feature ski-specific designs intended to provide the most appropriate warmth and protection possible. The Black Diamond Freeride Series has both gloves and mitts, so it's basically whatever you prefer. Plus, there are gloves to choose from that protect you from temperatures a low as -20 degrees. That's, like, really cold.
The Liner Series features gloves that can be used on their own in milder conditions, or used as glove liners in Ascent Series gloves. Basically, they're fleece gloves in different weights for temperatures as low as 25 degrees when you wear them alone. Check out the Black Diamond Wind Weight Glove if you need a windproof insulating liner. The Black Diamond MidWeight Glove is pretty much the go-to glove for mild conditions and layering, while the BD HeavyWeight is, well, a bit heavier.
