The Black Diamond Guide Finger is a part glove, part mitt design that is based on Black Diamond's popular winter skiing glove the Guide. It keeps the thumb and index finger in a traditional glove design, the difference being that the middle, third and little fingers are all held together in a mitt. The advantage of this is that your hand and fingers stay warmer without losing the dexterity of a glove. This makes them ideal for those who suffer with cold hands yet still need to easily facilitate hands-on tasks in the mountains.
The split-finger with a long gauntlet outer is constructed from an abrasion resistant woven Nylon which provides excellent durability and benefits from featuring a four-way stretch, providing a contoured fit. This combined with tough goat leather palms, assist in providing dexterity and grip that is easily able to cope in harsh mountain conditions. Further protection is added in the outer with foam padding featuring in the knuckle areas. This is then further backed up by a Gore-Tex removable liner that provides waterproof and breathable protection teamed with PrimaLoft Gold and boiled Wool, providing insulation with a clever combination of synthetic and natural fibres.
