Default Recommendation for durable gloves

I got these relatively cheap Goretex gloves (by japan standard) and they are literally destroyed by my Burton binding ratchet after around 30 days of use. (material was too weak) Will need to purchase a new durable pair that can last longer. Any recommendations out there? thx

i have some leather cobra dakine gloves that seem to be holding up well, but the water proofing sucks even though they are "gortex" i think i just need to go find the leather water proofing stuff. but other than the water thing they are pretty good.

As long as you don't care too much about looks.

I have the Dakine Broncos with goretex "inserts." Doesn't make any difference since they leak like a sieve. But they were cheap so I got them.

got me some of these. they lasted the last half of last season with no problems after going up tow ropes and dragging my hand on really rough ice.

I ride the Defcon Goliath and they are the best gloves I've ever had. Dry and warm everyday all day. The Ventilator and the Sentinel look like quality gloves too.

my dakine gloves seems to be really dureable. waterproofing isnt the best but they are a spring glove. has em a few seasons now with minimal wear and tear.

I have a pair of Swany gloves and they are by far the most durable, waterproof, and warmest gloves I have ever owned. I highly recommend them. I have the X-Change gloves. Here is the link: Ski Gloves & Ski Mittens - Swany - G.Cell Bluetooth Glove

i rip the finger out of every pair of gloves i wear from carving hard and dragging my hands all the time. I picked up a pair of the burton gortex gloves and they are sewn over the fingers differently and they have held together quite nicely for me. I am very happy with them
