Picked up a pair yesterday, not cheap but they seem to fit really well.
Intended purpose is to add to my collection of ice climbing gloves (most bought on sale).

Montreal has a pretty limited collection of technical ice gloves so finding properly fitting ones only comes once in a while.
I'll keep the packaging for a little while in case I find a better deal.

Anyone has any comments on these gloves?

Not the Cam SV, but I found my favorite ever ice glove last year in the Venta SV. I love them, they fit my hand well without a ton of extra material at the tip of each finger like most other brands (especially BD). I think the Venta is more-or-less identical to the Cam except made with insulated Windstopper whereas the Cam is a stretch woven softshell.

Was actually thinking about grabbing a pair of the Cams since they'd probably breath better than the Ventas which can tend to get a bit clammy on warmer days.

The price is steep for the gloves but the incredible comfort and dexterity makes up for it, for me at least.

I had these gloves for two years. Insanely dextrous and pretty warm. My only complaint is that they got pretty cold as soon as a decent amount of snow got on them (the softshell material isn't waterproof). This limited their use in ice climbing. As a belay glove, however they were fantastic. Unfortunately, I left them on the subway one day (*facepalm*).
