These mitts are exactly what I've been looking for. Because of peripheral neuropathy, my hands have been extremely sensitive to the cold. They kept my fingers warm while I wa cleaning away the record snows in very cold conditions here in New England. The mitts have a soft thick liner that truly envelopes the hand, The only negative aspect has been that finding the hole for the thumb is not easy. I consider that to be extremely minor. If warmth is what you want, I highly recommend these.

I bought this item about one year ago at the time of this review. I use it everyday and stuff it to the brim with books, clothes, etc. This pack shows no sign of quitting. Zippers and elastics are in great condition. For my use, it would be slightly better if the front anterior and interior pockets were bigger. It does not show dirt easily. This pack is well worth the price. I have not figured out how to easily use the front straps. They are not elastic. Rather, a drawstring mechanism is used to secure items.

I love these. I have small hands but the xs fit perfectly. I wear them with a pair of knit gloves when it's zero out and they work great. when it's a little warmer I can wear them alone. I walk my dog quite a bit and love the dexterity they have even though they are a mitten.

I have been looking for warm gear to cover my hands in winter for a long time! I have worn gloves that were supposed to be warm but they failed me! So I decided that it was time to go to the mitts! These are highly rated for a reason. They are warm, comfortable and fit over my Arctyrex Fission SV sleeves perfectly. The mitt has a separate space if you choose to use it for your index finger as well. You won't have the same dexterity in these as you would gloves, ie. cannot even zip my jacket until they loosened up a bit. But for warmth - these are primo! I would highly recommend them. The fit is true to size. I always wear size L in a glove and the L fit me fine in these.

I really wanted to like these gloves, but the outside of my hands could feel the cold coming in by the seams and they felt slightly tight (size m). They are a nice glove and liked the leather palm and touch finger tip, so would probably still be a great glove for runners or people whose hands don't run cold.

These aren't the warmest winter convertible gloves I've ever had but aren't advertised as such either. Seamless and comfortable protection they provide are perfect for any occasion after the first two chilly months of this Iowa winter. I do feel more comfortable using $10 fingerless gloves for day to day use but we'll see how they hold up in every day use over the next couple years.

This is a light, clean, minimal pack. It is compact, I am 6'2" and it almost feels like a kids pack, but I can fit a 15" padded laptop case, iPad, phone, lunch, thermos, and jacket no problem. I like how it has no extra ding-dongs all over the exterior, like useless bottle pockets and webbing and other junk. Plus, with BD gear I can reminisce about my long lost climbing days.

Dedicated day-hiker for fun and fitness (lost 35 lbs in 3 months!). Anyway, with 4-5 hikes per week, with my boots and socks being stored in my trunk, I was getting a lot of leaves, bark, and dirt down the tops of my boots, which were rubbing my skin, and it was probably doing slight damage to the Gore-Tex interior of my boots. I decided to give gaiters a try to remedy this. I started with the Outdoor Research Bug-Out gaiters. The OR Bug-Outs work fine, but they seem like just too much fabric. They would get quite dirty and would often rub against each other. I decided a smaller gaiter was in order. I found the Black Diamond Talus on Amazon, and gave them a try. These work effectively. As mentioned before, I'm not using them for deep snow, just tree-related detritus wrecking my socks and boot interiors. The tops of my socks tend to extend 1" or so above the gaiters, which is fine, I'd rather have the socks in contact with my skin than the grippy top hem of the gaiters. Also, I think that my feet and ankles sweat more than they would if I weren't wearing them, but that's the trade off; at the end of a long hike, I would rather have sweatier socks than dirtier socks. As for the appearance: these do not cut a slim profile. They appear a bit boxy, but they do not rub together, and they DEFINITELY keep the junk out of my boots. I give them 5 stars overall, because they perform their function well. For comfort, I give them 4 stars, but honestly, are gaiters supposed to be comfortable? They keep junk out of my boots, thus keeping me comfortable. For style, 3 stars. These are not a fashion item, but they do look a bit boxy, I feel a bit dorky in them, but I'm out in the woods hiking. As mentioned these are slimmer/better looking than the OR Bug-Outs, that's for sure. I recommend the Black Diamond Talus gaiters. I may try an even tighter/slimmer gaiter, like a trail running gaiter, but for now, these work well and I'm satisfied.

I have a Black Diamond Nitro that is 27 L and is a beautiful, functional pack, so I thought I'd try this one, since I was looking for something smaller and lighter in weight. Yes, this is lighter. Yes, it has the pockets I wanted, but the back padding is truly minimal, and wouldn't really hold up for daily use for very long. The front webbing is a ribbon-like material, not a bungy cord like I thought. It's really lightweight if that's what you're looking for, for ocassional hiking. Any serious hiking would work this pack to the bone in no time flat. Just not enough substance there. I do like the Black Diamond EXL, which is a similar size/weight, but more substantial in quality.

I purchased this bag to use in the Merrell Down and Dirty mud run Brick Division where they place 5 bricks totaling 25 lbs in you bag that you carry through the entire 3 mile course through the mud, over walls, through inner tubes,in a water and cargo nets. I picked this one because of the chest and waist straps does added support. It held up like a freakin' trooper and now looks brand new after washing...highly recommend!

Great liner that can hold their own by themselves or work great simply as a liner. The touchscreen tips aren't noticeable like other gloves either. Very warm, comfortable, and windproof.

I own this and the Black Diamond Voyager. The Titan is very bright and is an excellent base camp lantern. I love the collapsing design and two part handle that allows you to hang it from a loop without a carabiner. I actually like the way Voyager reflects light and it's more compact size better. But if you need a really bright lantern that is relatively compact, the Titan is for you!

Would have liked to see a side or front zipper for easier access to the bottom of the bag. Very comfortable!! I took the plastic/metal braced back plate out just for a little more ford n the bag. It pulled right out and is plenty stable without! I think it would get a 9/10 simply because you have to take everything out of the bag to be to the bottom. This bag will hold a lot of gear if packed right. I've found that if you plan out your uses of it contents in a descending fashion, it minimizes unpacking completely!! Main point-buy it!! Great quality!!

Best Mitt/glove combo I have ever owned. If you want to stay warm (mitt) and still have the dexterity of the inner gloves, you've gotta get these. I use them for fly fishing in Montana in winter. Buy 'em...now!

These are pretty nice gloves/mittens. They allow you to quickly flip up and text or email. They are a little thick -- as in better for working on a car than just tooling around.

Santa brought this light as a gift for my son for use in cub scouts; he loves it! it is very bright and compact. the two part ring at the top allows the light to be hung without a carabiner. The lights dimming and lamp/flashlight features allow you to adjust for just the right amount of light. The power notification is also a nice touch. This light does not seem as durable as my Kelty Flashback, but it is brighter and more compact.

This light is perfect for my needs. I am using it when I take walks at night or early morning, to protect against cyclists speeding on the narrow dark sidewalks of my neighborhood. I have so far worn it around my arm or bag. The adjustable strap allows multiple uses. It fits around the arm of my bulky winter coat and should work well with warmer weather clothes too. I even see people with these types of lights on their dogs' collars at night to protect them! I bought this item because I wanted a very bright light but did not think that I needed a more expensive model with a lot of fancy features. The Gizmo does not disappoint. The light (both steady and strobe) is very bright and can be seen for quite some distance. I will also wear this cycling. I also wore it strapped around my head, cleaning out my storage locker in the dimly lit basement of my building. Multiple uses. Batteries come with it and are easy to install.

I used this climbing pack for an Alpine rock climb (extended approach and elevation to 7,200 feet). It is perfect for the bare necessities - harness/chalk/carabiner, climbing shoes, two liters of water, snacks, etc. The rope fit perfectly on top. I was able to clip my hiking shoes and helmet on the outside. Comfortable for the 12 hour day.

Nice fit and weight...I use them for sailing so I want to be able to keep fingers flexible and yet warm. They slip on and off and stuff in my pockets with ease.

These gloves run very big! I usually order a Large in women's sizes, so I ordered a medium in this glove, and my hands were swimming in the glove. I tried a small, and it fits great - still quite roomy. I love the warmth of these gloves, and they seem to be well made. The magnetic flap is perfect - much easier to manage than the buttons I've had on some other mitten/gloves.
