Brand details

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 grown into a global company with offices on three continents that's not just for rock climbers, 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 standards 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 the result of each of us being 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 and because of this—the creation of Black Diamond is a process which 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 .

While the positron may not be the lightest quickdraw on the block any more (if it ever was), its budget price and durability more than make up for the weight penalty you experience over newer, sleeker designs.

The two krabs that comprise the business ends of the quickdraw are strong and robust with anti-snag keylock noses, an absolute must have feature in my opinion. They are a good size and should prove no difficulty being used with gloves. The clipping action is smooth and positive. The krabs are differentiated by the lower rope end one having a bent gate and the upper bolt/gear end having a straight gate.

The 14mm dyneema sling that connects the two krabs is a nice balance between thick and thin and can be grabbed relatively easily on a route if the need arises. It is quite well textured, unlike some slippier slings and provides a good level of friction.

For the price these draws are ideal for beginners sport climbing rack and could easily see service for trad too.

Woolweight gloves are reasonably warm and versatile. While wool breathes well, the leather palm adds the durability so that they can be used both as liner gloves as well as stand alone gloves while ski touring. I'm not very happy with their durability however, I bought two pairs of these and first pair got holes in it in less than 6 months and totally wrecked in 10 months. At the moment it seems that also the second pair will be at end of usable life time within 12 months of purchase. Part of the story is of course the fact that I'm climbing / ski touring a bit more than I used to, but I would still expect that any piece of clothing would last more than 12 months.

Trying out more than a few gloves, the Punisher made me stop for a while and just enjoy it.
With a brief exception of the flawed sticky-palm green version, these gloves are a good compromise between warmth, dexterity and durability. True, I use thinner gloves for really hard stuff, and mixed, but up to WI7, punishers get the job done easily. And they'd even last two seasons. Repaired a bit :-)
