On the reals, I roll with dakine gore-tex mitts too. Here's the salesman pitch:
Since the.extremities are the farthest away from your heart, naturally, they will be the coldest part of your body upon exposure. Therefore rocking gloves isn't really a practical strategy in my opinion when in an environment below freezing temperatures. Gloves separate the extremities and have increased surface area. Which effectively means more contact with the cold. Mitts alleviate this problem by clumping the extremities together. This shares the heat and decreases contact with the cold. I used to rock gloves. Lol I actually had drops . But I realized I hated my hands being cold. Now I only rock hardcore mitts

bluesk8r Thanks everyone. I don't know how I feel about mitts. I remember hating them as a kid and have never looked back into them. I'll take a loot at some Dakine's. I have heard mixed reviews on those though. More people seem to like the Broncos though.

Jed Yeah POW gloves are good and Dakine make very nice gloves too. I use pipe style gloves from both of those companies and they both perform great.

Comfortable and warm.

G Steezy Yeeee I had drop a while ago, I can still find them kickin around, albeit in the clearance sections (Or even winners!). Seems like POW and Neff are your next best bets, for sure.
Grenade is hype, too.
I know the big brands like Oakley, Dakine, and Burton make shit similar to Drop. Whatever you feel like rocking, but it seems, at least at this minute, Drop got dropped.

Gloves help please

I am a huge fan of drop gloves, but did they go out of business? I can't seem to find them anywhere, even online.
So the question is, what is a comparable glove? Are POW's any good? I am looking for a glove, yes a glove, without a liner and that is warm. I have a pair of pipe gloves for those warmer days, but I need something for those cold ones.
Recommendations are always welcome. And If any of your wives, girlfriends, sisters... have a good pair they like, let me know that too. I was thinking of getting my wife a pair also.

Thanks.
