Tougher than a Himalayan sherpa and more toasty-warm than your favorite winter sleeping bag, the Black Diamond Men's Tempest Glove easily braves harsh mountain weather. Black Diamond crafted this glove specifically for alpine addicts who deliver unending abuse to their gear and laugh at the prospect of turning back in the face of a storm. And with reliable warmth, waterproof-and-breathable construction, and a dexterous cut, what more could you ask for?

Bought these for my son for Christmas. He loves them and I'm real impressed with the quality and comfort. Size seems to be pretty true to fit and so far, no complaints about them being cold or wet.
Great gloves, solid construction and the leather has been super durable so far. They're pretty warm gloves, but for temps below zero something with more insulation would be the way to go.
The quality of these gloves is fantastic. I was very comfortable in windy, 25° conditions. However, being my first pair of gauntlet-style gloves I was not sure about the fit. None of my jackets or coats seem to work with these the gauntlet wont fit over anything but a long-sleeve shirt (only a bit of an exaggeration). These just cause the arms of my jackets to bunch up and let cold air right in. I could probably spend some time tucking the sleeve in, but thats not something I want to do 50 times each day while out in the snow. Too big to tuck under cuff. Any comments or suggestions to help me out? Thanks!
