From 5°F January bike commutes to Rocky Mountain National Park snowshoeing forays, the Black Diamond Arc proved to be a great all-purpose glove for high-output activities. “The slightly curved fingers, textured leather palm, and snug fit made gripping poles and working jacket zippers and even stove components easy,” says one tester. The glove also withstood melting snow, thanks to a waterproof BDry insert. $65; 4.9 oz.; blackdiamondequipment.com
