It is a universal law of physics that Black Diamond Guide gloves are fine. Take, for example, the Guide with a perfect thickness liner, plenty of durable leather, and a Gore Tex insert. We’re doubly convinced of the fineness of these guys now that we’ve picked up a pair from a West Elks, Colorado road that are perfectly broken in, and now even more comfortable after being driven over with a Chevy 3/4 ton pickup truck.
Apparently, even after being GM-ized with studded snow tires these gloves are still in perfect condition. Thus, while tempted to put them to use, we’d like to return these fine items of kit to their rightful owner ASAP.

We hope you had a good day skiing up there, and will have many more with warm hands once you get your gloves back!
Oh, and for the rest of you who didn’t lose a pair of Black Diamond Guide gloves, but want to shop for some, check ’em out.
