Soloist Finger Mitten

Black Diamond's Soloist Finger Mitten features a BDry waterproof insert, high-loft fleece, and PrimaLoft Gold insulation inside the removable liner. Gold synthetic insulation is PrimaLoft's latest innovative solution for lightweight warmth. It feels as soft and compressible as down, and it features permanent water-resistant protection. Because this heavyweight insulation is inside the removable liner, you can wear the Soloist Finger on summer alpine climbs as well as winter ski sessions. This glove also features a goat leather palm for a good grip, Kevlar stitching for durable reinforcement, and a split index finger for better dexterity.

  • BDry waterproof insert
  • PrimaLoft Gold insulated removable liner
  • High-loft fleece lining
  • Goat leather palm with Kevlar stitching

Fantastic for 2 Years

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These are great 3-finger gloves. The liners are completely removable so you can easily dry everything out. The loft on the top of your hand is much thicker than your palm, making their Dexterity pretty good for ski poles and an ice ax. The shells have held up to two aggressive ski seasons and a handful of mountaineering trips. The liners however have not. The insulation under my finger tips and underhand has complete come out. I would literally have balls of insulation in between my fingers after a day skiing. My palms now freeze when they touch anything cold.. It was a good two years, wish they lasted longer.

3 year long term update

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These are the best gloves. I coach a ski team, which means lots of standing around, lots of drilling and tooling, and skiing even when its terrible outside. 3 years later these are still my go to warm gloves. They're waterproof, I can wear a light liner and have warm hands at -20F. In all that time the ONLY thing that's worn is some pilling from the liner. I'm not even looking to replace them yet.

Warm Waterproof + pointer fingers

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Not only can you wave finger guns to greet your friends, you can stay exceptionally warm while doing so! This glove does it all if it's below 20F, locks out moisture, synches with a draw-chord to keep cold and powder out, and maintains a small profile considering how much insulation you get. Overall I consider this glove a stupid good value and can't wait to see how many years I can get out of them.
Uses: Alpine skiing, alpine hikes, urban biking, pointing.

Good quality/ pretty warm.

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I like these. They are warm but not exceptionally warm like my Mountain Hardwear Absolute Zero down mitts. But, they aren't designed for mountaineering.
But GREAT for the money. A bit bulky. Plenty warm for skiing and hiking in the teens. Very well made.

I got these after my wife got the mercury mittens last year, and my hands were cold below 10 degrees F or so. I have been stuck on peaks and chairlifts at -20 with windchill and my fingers are still just fine in these awesome gloves. The inner fleece liner is really thick, its got a lot of loft and texture, they take up a crazy amount of room in a pack for a pair of mitts, however they're worth every bit. When I first got them I dunked them in a sink full of water for a minute to see if I felt anything, not a drop. The liner is easy to take out for drying, and the shell is useful for warmer days.

I've spent twice as much on gloves that weren't nearly as great as these. They're durable, dexterous, comfortable and most of all WARM.

How's the dexterity on these? I ride my bike 5-6 miles each way to work in Manhattan in Marmot Work GTX gloves and below 15F my fingers nearly fall off.

It's good considering they are really high loft mitts. I assume you need mostly thumb dexterity for shifting? You should be OK for that. I went ahead and put them on and shifted my bike since I'd just gotten it out for spring.

Are these 3 fingered (thumb, index, one area for remaining three fingers) or split 5 finger style (thumb, index, split in three for remaining three fingers?)
