The Black Diamond Guide Finger takes their warmest pro-level ski glove and combines it with a split finger design, resulting in the warmth of a mitt but with the dexterity needed for use in the mountains. The design combines the extremely efficient and removable 170g Primaloft Gold and boiled wool lining with the highly waterproof and breathable Gore-Tex insert with XCR Product Technology. This culminates in a versatile mitt that excels in the coldest and wettest of conditions and comes with a build quality which will see them last.
Primaloft Gold, once known as Primaloft One, is one of the most advanced and trusted synthetic insulation materials on the market. It provides high levels of warmth at minimal weight and bulk, whilst retaining excellent breathability and water resistance, making it perfect for the Guide Finger as a light, packable and efficient insulating layer.
This is then protected by the tried and tested Gore-Tex insert which delivers enduring weather protection and comfort with balanced heat transfer and optimum moisture management, even in harsh conditions. Black Diamond has then used Gore-Tex's XCR Product Technology to improve the dexterity and performance of the mitt, offering maximum comfort in a wider range of temperatures. XCR has strategically placed grip tape to prevent movement between layers when under pressure, thus increasing the performance and durability of the insert.
Aside from the excellent levels of waterproofing and warmth, the Guide Finger remains extremely well featured and thought out. The woven 4-way stretch Nylon shell, alongside the tough goat leather palm, offers the durability and dexterity needed for extended use year after year. Added to this is the moulded EVA foam padding on the knuckles, which gives further impact protection for your hands during use. All of these features and technologies combined result in a top-end mitt, ideal for snow sports and ski mountaineering, that will excel and protect you in challenging conditions.
