From a New England Nor'easter to Scotland's Ben Nevis, whatever harsh winter environment you find yourself in the Black Diamond Soloist Glove offers dexterity and proper protection. A 100% waterproof BDry insert stays in the removable liner to keep you dry while the Soloist's lightweight woven nylon shell handles prolonged mountain abuse. PrimaLoft One insulation fends off the bitterest of winter cold.The Soloist is the warmest mountaineering glove in the Black Diamond lineup, with a suggested operating temperature of 15 to -15o F. The most important difference between it and some of its competitor models (say, the Outdoor Research Highcamp Gloves) is that the Soloist has its insulation in the liner, whereas the Highcamp is the other way around - insulation in the shell, with a lightweight fleece liner. It's up to you to decide whether you want to be able to remove the insulated liner in the Soloist and use the outer shell glove for protection from less-cold conditions (as in the Soloist here) or take off the insulated outer shell and use the lightweight fleece liner as a contact glove for tasks requiring fine dexerity, like stove tending (as in the Highcamp).Feature list from Black Diamond
