A little bit of everything.
Whether you're ice climbing or backcountry touring, you'll appreciate the dexterity that the Black Diamond Men's Glissade Glove has to offer when you're placing a screw or buckling your boots. This mid-warmth glove has a full gauntlet and BDry waterproof insert to keep your hands dry when tackling the wettest pillar or the sloppiest spring slush. A 100g fleece lining provides the ideal amount of insulation for aerobic activities that would fill a warmer glove with sweat, while the Thinsulate synthetic insulation offers furnace-like fervor when you need it most. And, thanks to a durable leather palm and hinged knuckles, the Glissade Glove gives you the freedom of movement to handle the most technical tasks with ease.

Excellent glove for higher output activities like xc/bc skiing. Very lightweight, dexterous, and breath well. They can be worn in relatively warm winter weather and down to about 0F, if you keep moving. I hook a lightweight OR mitten shell to my belt loop that goes over these gloves for when standing still or for really cold days. These gloves are light enough they work well under the shell. This aspect makes them very versatile in how they can cover a broad range of temps.
Durable. My first pair is starting to show wear after quite a few years of hard use so I just ordered a backup pair. The thin leather palm feels great on ski pole and is far more durable than I expected. Sawing downed trees and clearing trail during a ski is not uncommon and these gloves have proven to be remarkably tough despite being so lightweight, thin, and dexterous.
