Hey MP, looking for some feedback on BD vs. OR glove sizes. BD Punisher and BD Arc gloves, size medium, fit me well but aren't perfect. I'm looking at the OR StormTracker glove as a replacement but unfortunately can't find them to try on in person. I've heard they fit on the larger size and am thinking about going with a small, but small BD gloves are definitely too small.

Would love to here any feedback people have about sizing and general experiences with the glove. Thanks!

P.S. Also thinking about getting a pair of OR Air Brake belay gloves, so any thoughts on those would be great as well.

I have the storm tracker and love them. I would say they fit in the smaller side if anything. The dexterity is awesome in those gloves and great for ice. You'll love them. akafaultline

Black Diamond Medium:
Pilot - good fit, long pinky.
Arc - can't fit my hand into the glove, the wrist size is too small.
Terminator - Ended up getting the Small, the medium was way too big, the fingers are too short on the small but when holding tools I don't really notice.
Impulse - very good fit, slightly long pinky
Punisher - Tight wrist but once on are a decent fit, fingers are a bit bulky and the pinky is too long.

Outdoor Research, I only have the Contacts, ended up with the small and the fingers are still baggy but they're great to climb with.

"Punisher - Tight wrist "

You think? According to their instructions on how size their gloves I got a medium. I could barely get one on past my palm and couldn't get the other one on with one glove on.

I gotta send these back or at least sell them for what I paid...

Probably worth noting that I have pretty skinny hands, I don't have any problems with the wrist sizes on the Punishers and the Arcs, but the fingers are a tad long in the Punishers. Will Cohn
