Gear Review: Black Diamond Patrol Gloves
These warm, waterproof gloves test best for climbing
Best for Climbing
When you need agility and warmth in deep cold (read: technical alpine travel), get these waterproof/breathable gloves. They’re insulated with a warm duo of PrimaLoft One and Polartec Thermal Pro, shelled in a stretchy nylon for good dexterity, and reinforced with leather in the palm and knuckles for grip and durability.
On a Denali climb, our tester fixed lines, used an ice axe, and clipped in and out of a rope one-handed–without any cold fingers. $95; 8 oz. (men’s large); bdel.com
