Not great for skiing!
I can't fault the gloves, but I can fault certain online recommendations that these are good for skiing. I'm sure these are great for other applications, but they are way too bulky for skiing. It's tough to find a happy balance between dexterity and warmth, but I thought I'd give gloves a try this p...

Run very small
The gloves are fine and seem like they will hold up well, but oh my goodness, are they small. I ordered a large (I generally wear a medium for women’s gloves) and the fingers are way too tight. Not sure if there is a way to stretch them out or not; I will probably be giving these to someone with sup...

However, they feel more heavy duty than the Arc'teryx, they'll probably hold up to abuse longer. I think the heavy leather on the Black Diamond contributes ...

Since it's summer, I haven't worn these outside yet, so here's a limited review: Fit: my palm circumference is 20cm and I bought size large. The elasticized wrist falls exactly at my wrist, which ends up feeling a tiny bit short with movement (prefer it to be 1-1.5cm longer) but I have long fingers ...

I am on my second pair of guide gloves as I wear these gloves downhill skiing on cold days a minimum of 90 days a season. I ski hard and they are toasty warm. If temp gets about 28F in the west, they are too warm so I revert to my kingpins. I waterproof them on a regular basis as I wear them so much...
