The Perfect winter glove for anything. Period.
- Build quality
These gloves do it all. They are amazing on the ice, the most dextrous gloves I have ever worn. I also use them for skiing, and even riding my motorcycle when the mercury drops. If you are looking for the perfect ice climbing gloves, or just an all around winter work horse this is the glove to get.
On another note, after 4 years of HEAVY use, the fleece has finally packed down, but I can guarantee my next gloves will be the exact same ones.

Built for the demands of day-in, day-out ice cragging, the Black Diamond Punisher Gloves provide the protection and dexterity you need when you're placing screws, making V-threads or going for that perfect stick. A 100% waterproof BDry insert and a stretchy, woven nylon shell seal out moisture-frozen or not-and EVA foam padding on the back of the hand provides protection against knuckle bashing. Black Diamond also added a goat leather palm, capped fingers and pre-curved, ice tool-specific fit for a secure, durable grip when the pump clock is ticking.
Designed for cool days when dexterity is at a premium, the Black Diamond Punisher gloves are an essential item for climbing tall peaks and handling technical gear. 100% waterproof BDry inserts keep your hands dry on cold, wet days in the mountains. Woven nylon, abrasion-resistant shells with four-way stretch stand up to rough mountain environments. Fixed 100g fleece linings feel great next to skin and will keep your fingers toasty. Goat leather at the palms and fingertips stands up to the stress of mountain adventures; leather provides good grip of ski poles and other equipment. The Black Diamond Punisher gloves have a pre-curved construction and articulated fingers for a great fit. Closeout.
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.
