Anyone have experience with the new BD Punisher gloves. I heard they were cut different (BETTER) and had better stitching?

I got a pair two months ago.I think they are a nice balance between warmth and dexterity.I had the Ice gloves but they were too bulky for me. I'd recommend.

you found the Ice gloves to be bulky? I feel like they're pretty svelte, I'm always amazed how warm the are considering how the fact that there isn't much to them bulkwise. You think the Punishers are warmer?

yes and no. The ice are def warmer but I have bettter dexterity and fit with the punishers. My thoughts are that they are really similiar just more insulation and longer cuff with the ice's. to each is there own.

they definately have a better cut. I have an older pair and they are TIGHT for a large. A BD rep said they screwd up the sizing a bit. I tried the newer ones on in the store and they fit better. less bulky at the knuckle too with the new padding they're using.
