Rated 5 out of 5 by Mike from Warmest gloves I own My pair is a few years old. I hadn't worn them much as I had taken an unintended break from skiing until about 2 years ago. They do run small, as most have said. I usually wear L, and the XL in these is perfect. They're a little bulky, but when I think I might get cold hands, I go with these and never have a problem. Sometimes they're almost too warm, but that's better than being too cold. No problems with mine at all. I was thinking of buying some heated gloves for this winter, but I never find the need when I wear the Guides. I'm convinced that these are the warmest non-heated 5-finger gloves on the market, and they're actually a pretty good deal at $169 msrp.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Larry from High quality, but too snug and stiff I bought BD Guide gloves about 5 years ago, my usual size XL, biggest size my outfitter stocked. They almost fit, but the BD brand and the model name ("Guide") over-rode my senses and I bought them anyway. Can't use them with the thick liners, although a much roomier fit (of course) with the liners removed. Recently found 2XLs and bought them hoping for a roomier, more flexible glove. Definitely quality workmanship, and better fit, but the inserts seem even thicker between the PrimaLoft One AND "boiled wool." I feel like I'm wearing outfield or ice hocky mitts. Cannot grip my ice tools. For me, a slightly thinner liner would do wonders.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Barney from I really like these gloves So far so good. I've skied with these gloves 6-10 days so far and they are solid. A little bulky at first but they break-in quickly and are really comfortable. My hands are always cold and I can't say they are warm in these gloves on cold (25-30 degrees) days but they aren't freezing either, like with other gloves I've had. They also stay pretty dry on wet snow/rain days so that's a plus. I like the removable liners and that I can get wet hands in the gloves without any problems. I am a Ski Patroller so I'm always taking my gloves on and off and I hate gloves that the liner gets jammed in the fingers, these don't.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Riggs134 from Impressive, so far! In my work, as a ski patroller, I have tried numerous different ski gloves. We have to carry a lot of equipment around the mountain. One of the biggest problems, with many leather gloves, is the fact that they aren't water proof. This causes really cold hand on the mountain. I have used my new Black Diamond Guide Gloves for a couple of weekends. They have been awesome. Thanks to the Gore-tex liners, my hands have stayed dry and warm. We opened the mountain at -5° Fahrenheit last weekend on a day when the high was only +4°. I will follow up after the ski season to let you know how well they hold up over the rest of the season.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Icenine from Burly and Warm Glove I use the Guide Gloves for mountaineering and belaying during ice climbing and they are by far the warmest and most burly glove I have found. What I like most is the warmth and leather which stands up to the abuse of rappelling. My first pair of Guide Gloves is still in good condition but the leather wore through after about 100 rappels so I bought a second pair. Some people complain about the gloves not being warm. The issue is that you need to take a little time to break in the gloves. After the break in period you will have a warm glove that has good dexterity. If you do serious mountaineering and ice climbing this is the glove for you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Gustav from Great glove - beautiful construction & detail. I purchased this glove last fall. I was a bit apprehensive after reading some reviews which complained of poor dexterity. No truth to those reviews. The shell of this glove is beatifully made and the goatskin is very supple and moveable. I have gloves from many other manufacturers and these are as dexterous or more than many others. The liner is very impressive, perhaps the beefiest liner of any glove I have. I was on the mountain yesterday in -0- degrees and with a thin liner my hands were quite warm all day. After purchasing this glove and the Dirtbag, my impression of BD being one of the top glove manufacturers is reaffirmed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Pope from The Glove for Extreme Cold Weather and Hard Work I've had these gloves for six years and they have at least another six years of life left. I wear these as a Ski Patroller in temps ranging from 0 - negative 20 F, and they're in my pack for Backcountry Tours. Extremely warm and Durability is bomb proof! They'll break in if you actually wear them. Use the sizing chart, they're true to size.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Cory from OK, but not worth the price I bought the Guide gloves in 2013, and use primarily for alpine skiing. When I first purchased them I loved them; they were very warm, fit good, and seemed durable. After the first year they went downhill (pun might be intended). They quickly became less warm, I'm assuming due to the insulation packing out. This winter I noticed a seam coming apart (see photo). I owned a pair of Lowe Alpine gloves for over 10 years, with no durability issues, but they packed out too. If the Guide gloves were $80, I would recommend them. But for $169 (what I paid), not worth it.
