Dakine glove fit

So this is what I get for hopping on a deal too quickly.

I've been looking for some new gloves, but REALLY short on cash due to some things that have popped up. Found a great deal on Dakine Lynx gloves and ordered a small. My hands are this weird in between size - they are small/medium around the hand, but I have shorter sized fingers. I usually wear gloves around 7-7.5 BUT have worn gloves as small as 6in in a pinch. The 7-7.5 gloves usually fit comfy around the hand with room for a liner, but in the fingers they are too long - and i hate having extra material off the end of my fingers. So when I was wearing the 6in gloves, the fingers were PERFECT but it was snug around my hand. Not uncomfortable, I was able to flex my hand just fine, not cutting off circulation - but fitting a liner was not possible. I ordered a small in the Dakines thinking it would be a better fit in the fingers while also leaving some room for thin liners.

Dakine's glove size chart has them fitting a size down from most other gloves. A small usually fits 6.5-7.5, but with Dakine it is 5.5-6.5. I'm wondering if this smaller fit holds true in real life? I don't think they will be unwearable by any means, seeing as I wore a kids glove in small (kids not toddlers) at the end of last season when I lost one of my other gloves on the slopes, but I wanted to get some liners for better waterproofing. I'm not gonna sweat it if I can't do that, just want an idea of what to expect. I've never encountered a pair of gloves that deviated from the usual path, although it was bound to happen eventually.

There is a lesson in all this - do some research before hopping on a great deal (these were 60% off and free shipping), even with something as "minor" as gloves.

I agree. My Dakines have like 560g of insulation and are warm as hell.

Bwahaha - i tried mittens as my hands tend to run cold. However I hate the feeling of my fingers being "trapped". Just a weird fact about me. Also here in Virginia, it's pretty rare that temps get so low that a glove doesn't work for me. Anything about 40s and my hands get too warm in a mitten.

My fingers freeze if not mittenized! I hate gloves and I wear them for work. Never get the same fit twice!

Sorry kiddo! Gotta push the mitten agenda for snowboarding too! Wish I could be of more help.
