Hello.

I am interesting in buying these gloves. Can you please tell me how do they hold over the years, regarding that the first post is from 2010. Also, if my palm's length is 7.87 inch and around the knuckles I have 8.6 inch, what size should I choose?

Thanks,
reneftw

I will still use them this season but: I lost a couple of spikes from the back of the glove and removed the other that were left. Sealed the holes with glue with some success.

The gloves are very protective but not as water proof. Not a big problem for me since I rarely ride slush. All in all an OK glove. Not as durable and waterproof as I hoped but very sturdy and protective.

Thank you for your answer. I hoped that them would be more durable. Too late now, since I already launched the order. Anyway, I only ride like 15-20 days in a season, so I should be ok in the durability field for at least 4 years. Didn't read anything about not being very waterproof, maybe I wouldn't choose them if I knew that, regarding that the coming season would be my second one on a snowboard.

Again, for protection they are unbeatable. Even overkill if you want. Especially if you don't ride a pipe. I feel much safer with them on. As for water resistance I never had any major problem, but they are not the warmest or most waterproof gloves out there. They definitely do the job thou!
