Default Gloves and more Gloves...

I have had crappy ones in my past and good ones... I'm not looking to spend 75$+ on a pair and I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions? I'm a mens medium (I believe) and i'm looking for something black...

Thanks for your helpful suggestions

X-CHANGE II (SX-30) - Swany Gloves

Got them for Christmas and I love them. I have them in medium and they are comfortable, warm, and very waterproof. Highly recommend them.

For super cold I can highly recomend the Burton Gore Tex mits. They are about $60.00 and have the zipper pocket for hand warmers. These things are godly for cold weather riding. For warmer, I wear the Burton pipe glove which holds up well. Not a Burton guy (I have never owned one of their boards) but I think they make a good glove.
Agreed. I've got the Burton Gore Tex mitt myself. I'll never get anything else. They come with great removable liners that work well as gloves off the hill. Mine are going on their third season. They're designed with boarding in mind: Snot wipe, goggle wipe, and reinforced palm for carrying your board.

With all the strapping in, toeside saves, zippering, pocket digging, and carrying my board I tore through 2 pairs of cheap ones in three weeks. Trust me, it's MUCH more economical to just break down and get the right kind from the start instead of replacing cheap ones every two weeks.

I've actually got the Burton Gore Tex Glove for when it's not amazingly cold. It's been 2 seasons now and they're holding well. The only reason I didn't mention it earlier is cuz I bought it for a bit more than $75...

mitts keep all your fingers together so they stay warm...while when gloves keep your fingers apart they get colder...Grenade gloves/mitts are pretty reliable ive had mine for 2 seasons..still waterproof and warm. peace
