Not so great for arc welding, these gloves are more about arcing turns. The Black Diamond Arc is a durable and dexterous solution for ventures when you are doing as much climbing as skiing. A great all around glove for anyone who tends to wear gloves out quickly and an even better glove for those that just want something that will perform. A Pittards Oil Tac leather palm gives you confidence in your grip and it won't get worn through on rocky scrambles or while plunging an ice axe. A waterproof insert and light insulation on the back of the hand keep you dry and warm. The BD Arc is delightfully simple in its construction and intention; it's a glove that does its job.
