Rated 3 out of 5 by from Warm and light weight I've been using the Guide gloves for years, and after testing the Legend I'd recommend sticking with the Guide. I wanted to try the lighter weight Legend glove to see if the dexterity was noticeably better and if it still offered adequate warmth. The Legend gloves do both, the dexterity is slightly better and they are plenty warm. However, the downsides for me are the fleece interior lining and the short cuff. The fleece lining pulls out from it's natural position and bunches up making it slow to align the next time you put it on. Also the longer cuff, on the guide and others, in my opinion is much easier to slide on and create a solid snow barrier quickly.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Like a marshmallow on your hand I'd owned 2 pairs of the predecessor to this glove, the Rambla. I work as an avalanche professional in British Columbia. So naturally when I wore holes in the leather of the Ramblas I bought two years ago I sought to replace them with this new version. The legend glove is almost identical except for the leather, which is far too soft for any serious backcountry user. Rather like a marshmallow in suppleness, it fails to actual be a working glove as the leather is so soft it sticks and doesn't have enough form of it's own to actual be an effective glove given the primaloft insulation behind the leather. Please use a leather with more form BD. There was absolutely nothing wrong with the prior leather you were using.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sweet gloves Gloves are pretty awesome. Another reviewer wrote about them being "marshmallowy." I know what they mean, however, I like the gloves. They are comfy and I'm glad for the days I get to wear them. The leather is soft and pliable. Gloves are warm but, to be fair, not super warm. They wear like work gloves and if it is a crazy cold day I'm going to wear my mittens anyway. They would benefit from bigger cuffs because it is about impossible to keep the snow out -- depending on what you are doing that could matter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Black Diamond Warranty is Amazing I bought these gloves for my ski season this year, generally put 25+ days in the Canadian Rockies, mostly resort with some back country and heli. A few observations, I think that -17/18 C rating is a bit of an exaggeration. Generally I found these gloves are good to about -12 C but that is generally a personal preference and maybe I am just being a bit of snowflake. In terms of the marshmallow effect that some others have commented on, I have experienced this, but I believe it is because water moves through the leather layer but is stopped by the Goretex insert from entering the glove. However in the process the insert swells up in the process. (My buddies were having a good laugh as I was wringing my gloves out each time we got on the helicopter, but water never made it through the goretex layer and I think you can prevent this with regular Nikwax treatments) The goat leather used on these gloves is pretty soft and you will have to be very careful around ski edges. Mine developed holes very easily, however I gave this glove a five star rating as BD warranty was absolutely amazing to work with. Overall I have never had a glove with better articulation, but just be careful with them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Softest leather glove I’ve ever owned! The fitting on this glove is true to BD’s guide. The loft keeps this glove perfectly warm. The leather is very soft, which helps with dexterity and is super comfortable. Because the leather is so soft, this is not a great glove to test out on rock, rough surfaces, etc. And need to be careful around ski edges and stuff like that. But that’s the trade off between durability and dexterity. If you need a tougher glove for ice climbing, alpinism, ski mountaineering, etc. look to the Guide (super warm), Crew, or Patrol. Use the NikWax waterproof that comes with the glove - helps keep the soft, supple, and of course waterproof!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great fit, reasonable warmth The leather is very supple making them a great feeling glove to wear with good dexterity. I have cold hands and figured I would give these a try as I wanted something that fit under-the-cuff. They are pretty warm for a glove, but I won't be able to wear them in colder than -16 °C. Take into account that I have a cold hand problem.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid gloves for moderately cold weather Very versatile gloves with excellent movement/dexterity. I was looking for a leather pair of gloves with a slim cuff, and these have performed quite well. They are not the warmest pair of gloves I’ve had, but they did well in 18 to 40 deg F weather. I have about 8” size hands, and the LARGE fits quite snug. If you plan to wear glove liners, then I suggest ordering a size larger. My only complaint about these gloves is that the nose rag on the upper thumb portion absorbs snow and freezes, which makes it difficult to actually use this feature (see pic). Overall, it’s a solid pair of gloves for moderately cold weather.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not durable at all I will preface this by saying a. These are extremely comfortable and warm and I want to recommend and give a positive review. However, after wearing them for 4 resort days at Loon, no backcountry, no sidecountry, just straight resort days, the stitch that goes over the top part of my hand completely blew out exposing the insulation. I have multiple BD products and never have had quality control issues with any of them and this was highly disappointing. Mine may be a one of but if I'm buying something like this I expect it to last longer then 4 days of resort use. Still working with BD warranty on a solution.
