Default Gloves - I need new ones...

Hi guys 'n galls,

So I need new gloves...badly! I've never bothered buying good ones, and so I ended up having several shitty ones throughout the season, which sucked. I always have like sponge who suck up water and are always soaked at the end of the day. Anyway, it's time to buy some good ones as I'm going to be a ski- and snowboard teacher for 4 months in Austria!

I'm looking for durable, dry and warm ones (I don't mind paying for quality), I asked on several other forums aswell and they gave me some tips and after some research I ended up thinking these would be great. Lotsa good reviews and they're really cool if you ask me.

Only buy gore-tex. Imo only thing that is legitimately water proof when your out on the rain for 6 hours straight lifting people out of the snow and having snowball fights.

+1.

In addition, once you get the gloves, you might want to consider sealing the stitchings around the gloves. Although the gore-tex is waterproof, the seams aren't taped and in really wet conditions, water does tend to leak in from these areas (based on my experience with Burton gore-tex gloves ).

Too true. I've got the Dakine Broncos and they're gore-tex. But the seams suck.

Yeah completly legit point - it depends on the brand tho. I have ridden both, burton and dakine are kinda averagely made. Best make of gloves I've come across is celtek. Sick looking too. Or POW gloves. Top 2 reccomendations from me, never had any problems.

Could also look into LeVel gloves. I've been on the same pair for a few seasons, using them for snowmobiling and snowboarding. Awesome design, warm but lightweight. Dakines come in a close second for me.

I am a big fan of Swany gloves. I have the exchange model and I can play all day in wet snow without them getting wet and my fingers are always warm. Excellent glove but you pay for them. They are $80ish
