I<3snowp0rn Dakine Vista is goretex and dakine nova has Hipora insert. Don't know if it would be too hot though.

linvillegorge When you truly need to stay dry, and forget the 5k/10k/whatever "k" please shit. Go with something GoreTex, eVent, Conduit, etc.

I didn't have this issue with my pair of Dakine Bronco GTs... some of the other reviewers on Dogfunk also seemed to not have issues with the most recent version. Maybe it was an issue with a few of the gloves?

I consider buying from Dogfunk pretty safe since you can warranty return it if there is an issue.

lol I was riding Bear Mountain last weekend too This is actually what made me realize that I need a better glove. Really wish they would open more runs at Bear, or at least re-open Snow Summit..

ThunderChunky Pipe gloves. That's really the only option. It's either warm and bulky or slim and cold.

A google wipe and nose wipe would be great too if that's not asking for too much

Regular neoprene pipe glove kind of suck as they get wet almost immediately.

AWNOW A google wipe!!

At 45 degrees I usually just wear a pair of my spring Dakine gloves, probably not to different than what you have. What is the issue with why they are getting so wet so quickly? Never rode in your area in that temperature, so maybe snow is melting quicker at that time?

Looking for a dry glove that isn't too bulky

I want a glove that will be waterproof (even during rain and slush days) but that is not too bulky and won't be too hot on 45F degree days.
