Default what glove

So its just before I go boarding and im looking for a nicer par of gloves on the cheaper end 30-50 or 60 ish. I realize everyones going to say pay $60 but the cheaper the better.anyway things I need outa the glove. Must be durable. I cant stress this enough.because im tired of having gloves rip. Secondly id prefer a larger cuff as the cuff on my coat doesnt work as well as a glove cuff would. Thats about it. Dont really care about color as long as its not neon pink lol. Anyway thanks in advance. As reference I was looking at the burton profiles.

The only way you are going to get away not spending ~$60 is to get something at a discount retailer like Marshall's, Ross or TJ Maxx. Even then, you will probably end up with a glove that doesn't have liners.

If you go any cheaper, then there is a fair chance that your gloves won't be warm enough for colder conditions (i.e. a windy, cloudy day where the snow comes in sideways, or those 10F and below days).

They are your hands... but it seems silly to me to save $20-$30 on gloves and then not enjoy your $60-$100 lift pass because you can't keep your fingers warm.

Try mittens. Odds are that you'll probably spend at least half of what you save on gloves on hand-warmers if you go too cheap.

I love mittens so much more than regular gloves.

Try the Burton gore-tex mitten, you can get last seasons for well under $60.

I'm a fan of mittens as well, but my kid has a pair of the POW Villain gloves and loves them. $65 bucks.

what are your temp. requirements?

for durability you can't beat leather.

Burton gtx mitts with liners are the most affordable super warm solution at teh top of your price range ($60), and while fairly durable, will not compare to leather.

I know what you said about the cuffs, and this is the opposite, but these are so form fitting they will go under any jacket/hoodie sleeve. You can't beat these things for price and durability, I use them for most conditions. $20. After 50 or so days however long they take to smell bad - trashola, nbd.



Ill use the GTX mitts when its super cold or wet.

I picked up a nice set of Gore tex burtons at the-house.com closeout section last year for like 40 bucks, even came with inside silk gloves, 60 dollars should be able to get you something nice from the closeout section.
