Black Diamond Guide Glove - Men's - 2010 BCS
For deep-winter ski days and stormy mountaineering ascents, the Black Diamond Men’s Guide Glove excels in cold backcountry conditions where dexterity is paramount. The Guide’s durable stretch-woven nylon and goat leather shell act as a first line of defense, while the removable insert featuring a Gore-Tex waterproof breathable membrane and PrimaLoft One insulation stops harsh conditions before they reach your hand. A wool and fleece lining wick moisture and add a soft touch, and EVA foam inserts protect you from knuckle-bashing ice and tree branches.

Could one to use the liner for ski touring and ice climbing? I'd like a warm glove that has a liner that can be used for these purposes.

Tried a friends last year for a few ski runs and loved them, kept my hands nice a toasty on a cold 10 F day. Unfortunately I did not take note of the size. When I saw them on SAC I quickly measured my hand and ordered as suggested on the size chart. My hand measured 8 1/2 length by 8 1/2 for the width so I ordered the medium as suggested. Too small. Great return policy and luckily on sale on DOG for a few bucks more. I was able to try on the Large and XL. Note that this glove is made for the hand to be in a slightly gripping posture. When I tried the Large, my fingers were still lightly hitting the ends of the glove, and I was not able to put a liner on and still fit in the glove comfortably. I probably could have stuck with Large, it may have stretched a little over time, but I would not be able to use a liner. I went with the XL. Im not swimming in it but I can fit a liner glove if needed and fingers have ~1/2'' or less wiggle at the ends. BD rates these as −20F to 10F
So after wearing a few times, the fingers are good but the palm ended up being to wide. I should have got the large. (lucky for me they fit my friend...)
Still give these 5 stars because they would be perfect if I would have got the correct size.
