Default Stupid Gloves!!!: Yet Awesome REI!

I didn't have a pair of gore-tex gloves and it was a day until I went back to Mt.Brighton so I ran out to REI and found a pair of very comfortable gloves. They were Burton.... and I really have never had problems with Burton gear. However It was a tow rope day as I was helping my girlfriend and little cousin get started into the sport. I look today while I'm putting my stuff up and the seams are ripped on my left hand!!! I'm not a scrubby rope user, the rope doesn't even run through my hands, yet there is a little ware on that one hand and my two middle fingers have a rip. I know i payed too much for them, but they were the most comfortable gloves I tried on and to me comfort means almost everything. I'll have my grandma throw a couple stitches in them, but still what the ef!

Meh not just Burton, bought my b/f a pair of Dakine Stingray Goretex gloves, they look so pimp, and at over 100 dollars retail(meh I got a discount at the time at least) I figured theyd be great, not so they suck ass, they're uninsulated and the colour is running out of the leather after about 5 uses. They freeze solid in an hour of use. He went back to using sport mart firefly gloves, lol. So yea you dont always get what you pay for hehe

I had a pair of burtons that got thrashed up pretty quickly. got them at the end of last year and they ripped on a few fingers and the leather palm started to peel off. Got some Swany's and they are killer. Love them and they are super comfortable, warm and durable

never had a probelm with dakine gloves seems odd that 100 dollar pair would fuck up. i usually buy the cheaper 40 dollar ones and they last through a beating. anyways like stated take em back. I am a member with REI which if you arent i suggest get it one of their perks is you can return anything you buy anytime even if you deliberatly break it. Honest truth i put this to the test on a set or SPY goggles bought em thrashed the shit out of them put a hammer straight throught the lens and returnd them no questions asked this took place over 3 days.

uh internet returns are pretty sketch. best bet would be to purchase a similar or the same glove from rei and then keep the new ones and return the busted pair. sometimes although its not ethically fair pulling a fast one works just be ready to reap the karma repurcussions

dakine bronco gt... these things are bulletproof. they never get wet and i've grabbed onto everything from my sharpened edge to tree branches and fences, and scraped them all along sharp ice to save my poor knees from getting scratched up. still as good as new.

Return
Every
Item

I would just take them back. You shouldn't have any problems. Then get a new pair of your choice. I have a pair of Bronco GT gloves that didn't hold up worth a damn btw. In fact every pair of Dakine gloves I have owned have shredded way faster than I would have liked. I love their packs, but not impressed with the gloves.

Regardless, you should have no problems doing a return at REI. Do it and get yourself a fresh pair of gloves.
