Are These Your Gloves? Found, pair of BD Guide handschuh.

Post by blogger | March 20, 2011      

It is a universal law of physics that Black Diamond Guide gloves are fine. Take, for example, the Guide with a perfect thickness liner, plenty of durable leather, and a Gore Tex insert. We’re doubly convinced of the fineness of these guys now that we’ve picked up a pair from a West Elks, Colorado road that are perfectly broken in, and now even more comfortable after being driven over with a Chevy 3/4 ton pickup truck.

Gloves for backcountry skiing.

As seen and photographed in the spirit of edge cutting photo journalism, these gloves were not asked to pose on the roadbed, nor were they compensated with money or canned soup. (Hint to owner: Our fave brew these days is Odell Easy Street Wheat.)

Apparently, even after being GM-ized with studded snow tires these gloves are still in perfect condition. Thus, while tempted to put them to use, we’d like to return these fine items of kit to their rightful owner ASAP. If this is your lost handwear, please leave comment, and also contact us using ‘contact’ link in menu above.

We hope you had a good day skiing up there, and will have many more with warm hands once you get your gloves back!

Oh, and for the rest of you who didn’t lose a pair of Black Diamond Guide gloves, but want to shop for some, check ’em out.

    Some of the finest gloves designed in USA, in my opinion, are BD. Too bad I can’t really seem to wear out my Marmots, cause I wanna pair of BDs.

    Lou, what a great idea. I’ve never have put much stock in “finders, keepers” myself. Lost things still have a rightful owner, they’ve merely been temporarily separated 🙂

    Hi Lou. Thanks so much for your honesty and integrity. Been missing my BD gloves for the last month+. My hands froze hiking Highlands Bowl yesterday; spring gloves with hand-warmers just didn’t cut it.

    Please let me know what is the best way to hook up so I may get them. I own/operate Transformation Yoga in downtown Carbondale – 449 Main Street. My cell is 309-6911. I am also happy to pick them up from you if you want to send me your address.

    Peace to you and the Wild Snow Community!

    Frank, I’ll drop ’em by later today! Glad you finally found this post. You’d better start reading Wildsnow on a regular basis in case you lose anything else (grin).

    Cool. We have a class at 9, noon, and 6 pm today. The studio is open before/after or during these classes. If I am not around, feel free to leave them in the front area of the studio.

    Peace to you Lou. I owe you my brother.
