The Black Diamond Torrent Glove is a lightweight, lightly insulated winter glove that is great for skiing, when it is not bitter cold out, and any sort of winter hiking, snowshoeing or cross country skiing. It is a two-part glove, meaning that is has a waterproof/breathable outer shell made out of GORE-TEX and there is also a removable fleece liner inside. The palm of the glove is completely goat leather so it’s going to be durable but it’s also lightweight and offers good dexterity and it is easy to grab onto a ski pole or snowshoe pole. There is a small leather hook here if you want to attach them to a carabiner and clip them your pack for quick access later. There is an adjustable strap at the cuff so you can get a secure fit out of it. The glove does have a short gauntlet that allows you to tuck a jacket underneath to keep snow out and you have a one-handed drawcord pull and a one-handed release as well. This is the fleece liner. It’s basically a 200 weight fleece glove. It’s warm and gives you good dexterity and fits well inside the glove. If it’s not that cold out but you do want some weather protection you can always wear the outer shell of the glove by itself as well. The inside liner attaches to the outer shell through a tab of velcro here and here. Open up the wrist strap and slide it inside and as you pull it into the gauntlet those velcro tabs just kinds of catch and secure the liner inside the glove.
