Lots of manufacturers make extremely warm gloves that turn your hands into useless paddles. That isn’t the story with this glove. The Black Diamond Punisher Glove blends unsurpassed dexterity with full weather protection and is designed for long alpine routes or ice cragging in variable temperatures. The Punisher has a fixed lining and a BDry waterproof breathable liner to fight off the weather. The four-way stretch shell provides a full range of motion, extremely important when you find yourself 80 feet off the ground on a frozen waterfall. The 100g fleece lining is warm but not overbearing, easy to move in, and soft to the touch. The pre-curved fingers are designed to feel natural when wrapped around an ice tool. The Punisher also sports an ultra-durable goat leather palm and EVA foam-padded knuckles to protect your fingers.
