Black Diamond Gloves

Any reviews on the Black Diamond Legend gloves ?

I currently have a pair of the BD Guide glove (which are killer), but I'm looking for a pair of in-cuff gloves.

I know BD's quality and durability, the only question I really have is, do they go deep enough into your sleeve to keep the freshies out ?

I'm going to go out on a limb and say most likely, nobody here uses BD. Great gloves indeed, I also love my guides, but this is a snowboard brand site.

They look warm as he'll. Too hot for my sweaty hands that's for sure.

If you want slim mitts try these bad boys: Burton AK Yeti Mitt

Been using my pair for a few seasons now and they're awesome.

You said gloves, but mitts > gloves

Yeah, no mitts for me, maybe lobster style, but not a full mitt.

I hear what your saying on the snowboard brand crowd. I know ArcTeryx, Mamutt, Northface, Marmot, etc are spendy, but they make good shit.

I've got a pair from 2011, they're still in great condition just can't wear unless it's below freezing.
They only go about 2 inches passed the wrist, so if the jacket sleeve length makes it to your wrist it'll be fine.

I think the sleeves are long enough, my only concern is if the opening is big enough for the glove to fit

I bought a pair of a legends last year and love them. Warm as hell and the quality is outstanding. I usually wear hoodies and I pull the cuffs over the gloves so they work well for me.
