When negative temperatures or cold hands threaten to send you packing on a powder day, the Black Diamond Solano gloves deploy supplemental battery-powered heat to keep you going lap after lap. Inside, we've upgraded our low-profile and fully rechargeable heating system using the premise of countercurrent exchange-the transfer of heat through orienting the heat source perpendicular to the blood flow in the wrist. The heating element now wraps around the inside of the wrist, which increases the glove's warmth and your body's ability to warm itself. This system still includes three-levels of heat that are controllable via an integrated LED switch. On the exterior of the gloves, a premium goat leather shell backed up by a fully waterproof and breathable GORE-TEX insert stands up to the rigors of long days on the mountain in variable conditions. We've also increased the PrimaLoft Gold insulation on the back of the hand and added PrimaLoft Gold to the palm with Grip Control to the palm for better control while skiing. A zippered carrying case and included outlet adapters make for easy storage and charging while traveling.
Here at Black Diamond it's all about climbing and skiing. We share the same experiences that you do on rock, ice and snow and these experiences push us to make the best gear possible for our worldwide family of climbers and skiers.
What began with a backyard anvil and a hammer has now grown into a global company with offices on three continents. Black Diamond is a company that's not just for rock climbers and skiers, but one that stands for the spirit of the sports we live, their values and goals, past, present and future. Since 1957, our innovative gear designs have set the standard in numerous areas. This is partly the result of dedication, desire and diligence on the part of an incredible team of people. It's also a product of the fact that each of us are climbers and skiers ourselves.
We're a company of users. It's who we are. We're the greatest dreamers about what could be, and the harshest of critics about what exists. Because of this, the creation of Black Diamond is a process that will never end. The company today is more committed than ever, thanks to the many people here in the U.S., at Black Diamond Europe and at Black Diamond Asia whose limitless energy and hands-on involvement have created a promising future for all climbers and skiers worldwide.
