I have these same gloves except they are the over-glove. Got them last season, haven't been as happy with any other glove as I am with these!

Yup, 3/3 Burton outerwear products I have bought have not lasted more than 30 ride days. Good call.

I've had both Burton Gore Over/Under gloves and they've ripped within 30 days I also have the nicer version in the Burton Pinnacle gloves with the real leather palm and they suck worse...

Now those Swani X-Change II gloves are the best gloves I've ever owned. I'm 2.5 seasons down on them and they have been functionally perfect and super warm. I also picked up a pair of the mittens for the super cold days and would recommend them to anyone anytime anyplace as the best performing gloves you can get.

I also own Dakine, POW and Celtek gloves and none of them stack up to the Swani's, though I like the Celtek Clan's for the warmer days towards the end of the season.

Man Burton outwear is so hit or miss. I've had a couple of pairs of their gloves that were nice and one pair that fell apart in no time. What I've noticed is retail price tends to have a lot to do with their quality. Their budget outerwear line has the same rep. Falls apart quickly and doesn't last. Go with the AK line and you get pretty bomber construction. Got to love the big B...

Have to agree here. Have bought a few burton things over the years with mixed results. Try something with out the Burton name on it. Most of the time you will get better quality and you won't be paying for the name.

I'd agree with this also... that said though for the money you spend on the AK line you can get some much nicer Arc'Teryx, Patagonia or Mountain Hardwear stuff. I know those brands are more skier/mountain climber oriented but if you want bomber quality weather gear that's the ish...

The Burton stuff I've purchased is really not quality stuff. Pants, jacket, gloves, boots, board, etc... have to tell people to stop getting me burton gifts. The socks were satisfactory though. I would never pay retail for Burton, just not worth it.
