On long, multi-pitch ice and mountain routes, keeping the hands warm is a matter of comfort and safety. Witness the new BLACK DIAMOND EQUIPMENT ENFORCER GLOVE ($169.95, bdel.com). The highly engineered Enforcer sports an optional, super-warm removable liner, and the articulated fingers and stretchy Schoeller shell fabric offer excellent dexterity. The palms are reinforced with extremely durable Pittard’s leather, while the waterproof/breathable Gore-Tex liner kept my digits dry as I battled melting ice. The real kicker: to reduce tool-swinger’s fist bash, Black Diamond equipped the finger backs and knuckles with D3O padding, a tip-top tech material that feels like dense foam but hardens under impact, absorbing force.
