Black Diamond Mad Max Glove - Men's - 2010 BCS
When fuel sources are exhausted and the post-apocalyptic nuclear winter descends on the earth, the Black Diamond Mad Max Glove will be headed up the skin track in search of face shots. Underneath this glove’s durable goat leather shell, a Gore-Tex waterproof breathable insert fends off moisture while the wool and fleece internal lining wicks sweat and adds a touch of warmth. Molded EVA padding inserts on the knuckles protect you from pesky foliage and other obstacles, while the under-the-cuff fit and zip closure give the Mad Max a sleek, low profile.

Nice gloves, but quite a squeeze to get on and off, even with the zippers open. Maybe I'll try to stretch 'em out. Otherwise, they're some nice mountain warrior bling...will never, ever get cold in these, I don't think. Pain in the butt when trying to adjust audio or things you need your fingers for. Resorted to using my teeth to pull on right glove (first time out, so maybe they'll loosen up....), don't think that's a good long term solution. I have no doubt that the neoprene would keep out tha pow if you needed it. Can see these being really helpful if you tree ski or live in CO in general.
Love these gloves!

Being a California native, I now live in Minnesota where most gloves just aren't warm enough for me. The sales associate at Backcountry.com recommended Black Diamond gloves. I'm glad he did! These are extremely heavy-duty, durable, tough, gloves which I am certain will provide years of outstanding service.

Wore these on the mountain while boarding. It was my first time on a board, normally I ski, so I spent a lot of time on my butt and with my hands in the snow. They took on a little moisture but didn't seem to lose any warmth. By the end of the day my pinkies were starting to get a little chilly, but on the slopes at Brighton with a high teens temperature on the lift I think that is kind of expected. Overall a great and VERY durable glove.
*** EDIT: Just got back from three days in the Austrian Alp near Tirol with these gloves, performed great. My hands were almost always toasty unless I was stuck in the line at a lift for too long. The gloves dried out overnight without any problem and never soaked through. The long cuff made forays into the powder less than a concern. I blasted these gloves with everything the mountain could throw and they kept me smiling.

These gloves are the perfect glove for all day backcountry skiing on cold days and powder days. The under-the-cuff design makes it perfect to prevent powder from sneaking in around your wrists...
