What glove should I choose between the Black Diamond Punisher & the Black Diamond Torrent for Ice Climbing in Quebec ???

Do you have any preferences?! ever climbed with one of these?

Punisher for sure. Haven't climbed in, or even seen or heard of the torrent, but it's pretty hard to beat the punishers. They are a purebread modern ice glove, and they are fantastic.

The torrent looks like a full on alpinist glove, which will by comparison sacrifice dexterity and low profile for warmth. That isn't really what you're looking for in an ice glove.

I use the Punisher as well, but would also reccomend the Ice Floe by Cloudveil. Not sure if they still make them or not. The Punisher is a bit thicker...the Ice Floe a bit more dextrous

the best setup I have found for ice climbing is to have multiple gloves.
I use a thin glove for climbing and a thick for the belays.
check out the BD Arc

I haven't climbed in them, so this suggestion is next to useless, but the mountain hardwear outdry gloves look real good.

I personally have a set of punishers and if you are just going to be Ice climbing, they will be more than enough.
