So do you just put gloves under jacket and Velcro it down tight?

Guessing ones with a "gauntlet" kind of thing?

Ha, indeed, glad to be of use

As for wrist guards, I have Level V gloves (mitts) with integrated wrist guards. So they are not a separate stretch fit item to over my hand and wrist. You might want to check them out if you like gaiters and want to keep wearing your wrist guards!
What did you do with your old gaiterless jacket RE gloves/sleeves?
I've got the docmeter wrist guards which I really like so probs don't wanna swap them. They are indeed a little awkward with gaiters.

I like the idea that the jacket can be worn more as casual/streetwear without gaiters.

I'll wait till it gets here and try it out, still a little sceptical. It's a shame as everything else on the jacket looks sweet.

I usually put the gloves under the jacket but over the gaiter and velcro it down on top of the glove.

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.

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.

I think wrist gaiters are nice to have, but there annoying when your not snowboarding. Plus if you want some and don't have any cash or outerwear with thumb loops you can make your own out of a pair of socks.

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.

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.

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.
