BLACK DIAMOND - high quality all mountain Stratos glove.
Black Diamond constructs gloves for skiers and climbers. Founded in California in 1957 they are located in Utah and Europe. What I really find impressive about this company is the passion they hold for their products as they themselves are mountain climbers and skiers.
Featured above is the Stratos glove which is comprised of a removable and anatomically-lasted insulated liner. To insure flexibility Black Diamond uses a four-way stretch fabric. The palm is reinforced with Kevlar stitching and the shock-cord gauntlet keeps the elements out.
