Robust and tough, the Black Diamond Legend is an all-around performer. No other single layer ski glove in this review was warmer, as this model is packed with Primaloft insulation. It resists wetting out and provides decent dexterity after loosening up the leather. You can definitely tie knots in these gloves, while also being strong enough to handle ropes without falling apart. It barely missed our winner's circle, but should not be written off.
A new version of the Legend, pictured above, is out for the 2018 season. Boasting some significant changes, we list the key differences below.
