Why We Chose The Black Diamond Progression Mitts:
Frostbite begone – these heavy duty mitts pack a punch.
Black Diamond is the only good thing to come out of that weird system Americans use to rate piste difficulty (come on guys – green, blue, red, black. Simples!). Perhaps still best known for mountaineering and skiing, few companies understand the mountains better.
“Whoever first realised that goat leather was the answer to pretty much all glove-related problems, we salute you”
A lot can go wrong in far-flung zones if you’re not prepared, which is why Black Diamond operates a strictly substance-over-style policy with its gear. As it happens, the new Black Diamond Progression mitts also look the business.
Who Are The Black Diamond Progression Mitts For?
Even from a distance, it’s clear that these belong on the hands of someone who’ll be taking on the elements. On bitter January days in the resort, these will prevent you from spaffing your holiday budget on hot-chocolate stops. If you’re more interested in exploring the backcountry in all weathers, they serve as cast-iron insurance against getting chilly fingers when you’re miles from shelter.
