Absolutely correct. These are very similar a number of snow/snowboard gloves sold by brands like Dakine, The North Face, etc. All sourced from the same far east supplier. Most differences are minor (color, might not have nose wipe and goggle sweeper), others might matter a bit more (different levels of insulation, fleece in the gauntlet, etc.).

It's not a terrible thing because my midlayer has thumb loops so I am not getting anything on my skin but I prefer the over the cuff for the extra bit.

With what you have said about your hands, I would suggest some mittens. The only mittens they have on evo are the Gore Tex mittens for women but I don't see what the difference is.... They are all black so I'm sure they could pass plus it's not like anyone gives a shit. They are a similar 3-1 system to the Burton GTX gloves I have. On backcountry.com there are some POW Gloves Warner GTX mittens as well.
--- I don't have a mid layer yet, i suppose i should buy one with the finger loop things. A 3-1 Smarty jacket i was looking at had that integrated into it. The only complaint about those gloves is the cuff itself isn't long. That shouldn't matter really though with the proper mid layer and if it's some what over my jacket.

If i would wear a medium is mens, should i wear a large in womens, and XL in womens since they are saying you should size up?

I didn't make the connection that "under" meant under the cuff.... I had a pair of Gore Tex Burton gloves for a couple seasons and there was practically no signs of all the falls that were taken on them. They are also come with a liner so they are 3-1s which is great for flexibility.
--- I would think a Medium for a tight fit (which i would prefer), but a large i can get away with too.

Under the cuff is better or no?

I personally suggest mittens if it is going to be really cold. There just a lot less surface area to let heat out or water in. Also remember to keep your core and arms warm if you get cold hands. If your core is warm then your body move blood to your hands to shed excess heat and you hands stay warm.
--- My core is generally never cold... i have really bad circulation though in my hands and feet. So once my hands hit cold, the veins go in slacker mode lol. I work out 5-6 days a week, and i'll be sweating my ass off in the gym, but my hands and feet will be stone cold still lol. The only way i can normally get my hands back to normal is by running them under cold, then warm, then really hot water for a good 5 min. I'm an oddball with blood circulation.

--- I really wish i would have gotten some replies before i put the order in. I am new to the scene so i just went off of what i read... According to the article/review i read (independent from neff or grenade) "the jacket is light, but don't let that fool you. It kept me very warm."

So i just went off of that really. I started boarding last year and borrowed all my gear from a friend (same size luckily) the only bad experience i had was wet gloves/cold hands... His gear seemed to be around the same thickness, idk about quality... but once i did a run or 2, i was sweating bullets. The glove situation ruined my day though. Was so bad to the point that my fingers were literally turning blue in color.

From what I understand, the Northeast gets cold as tits so I would make sure that you have enough insulating layers because that Neff jacket certainly doesn't have very much if any.
--- The only person i had helping me was my girlfriend, and she isn't very well informed. Just kept warning me VT slopes are WAY colder than PA slopes. As i said above, i went off of what i read since nobody responded for a few days. Yeah though, 106 for pants and jackets isn't half bad lol. I tried the stuff on, and the jacket has those clips on the underskirt which is a nice feature. The jacket i wore last year didn't have that.

Once i throw on my under armor, thermal pants and thermal shirt, i am pretty sure i will be good to go with the layers/warmth issue on my body.


Is there any gloves that you would recommend from the clearance section on evo.com? I would rather save a few bucks and get last years models. Again my ignorance comes into play and not knowing what to get.
