Steezus Christ yet to find a jacket with wrist/thumb gaitors that are actually long enough to wear around my thumb whilst snowboarding.. i just figure they dont exist and its not that big of a deal for me to really worry about

Mel M I find gaiters to be more useful as a tool to help pull my sleeves under my Hestra gloves which has an elastic band where the wrist is, above the powder cuff. Otherwise my sleeve would be riding high up on my arm. A necessity, may be not, but very convenient for me.

But srs, you not bothered by the lack of gaiters on your jacket when you go out with that one?
No , never. In fact I find the one without more comfortable... I'm always pulling and fixing my gators and they feel like crap under my gloves most days getting twisted up and shit. The jacket without them feels great and I never have any issues. And ya, the gators piss me off when I'm not riding. I should just cut them out already lol.

Yeah I agree.
Received my jacket this week without gaiters and I'm a big fan. Can wear it out round town and work etc without it looking overly goofy.
Definitely less faff with wristguards too!

I'm happy without gaiters for now anyway. Thanks for all your help.

LuckyRVA Bought my first jacket with wrist gaiters this year and I dig them so far. I took a bunch of spills in pow last weekend and never had snow go up my sleeves. I'll be looking to have wrist gaiters in my next jacket as well.

Triple8Sol I would never buy another jacket without wrist gaiters. If I really had to have it because of some combination of a good deal/color/specs, I would have to get some sewn in. Had my gf do that for me on my new Holden jacket last season.
