I have sweaty hands. Need gloves!

Can anybody recommend some good gloves for a guy with sweaty hands? I think my coat is a bit too heavy and I'm getting a lighter one tomorrow or whenever I can get the time. But my current gloves are pretty thick. You see, I just moved to Alaska from Oklahoma and I don't really like cold weather much. But I really love snow boarding! I bought heavy gear to stay warm, but it keeps me too warm. When I take my current gloves off, they're wet. Putting them back on is pretty cold. What do you guys do to keep your hands dry? I'm willing to pay for good gloves! Thanks for any tips!

I really like my Pows. They have both kept my hands warm and dry. Rome and Celtek are also worth looking into.

Snowboarding Is...

That thing I do to escape the world and have fun with my friends

bring another pair of gloves? You can also try gloves made for runners... I used to run cross country and we had really thin moisture-wicking gloves but i forget who sold them.

I've got a pair of Dakine Titans, they are a 3-in-one type system with a liner kinda like a columbia jacket. The outer glove is GorTex an insulated but not nearly as heavy as my last pair of gloves so it's really waterproof and breathable. I found that I had the same issue you're talking about where my hands would get swampy even on really cold days so I knew it was just sweat.

The best way to keep the sweat away is to buy gloves with liners. Make sure the liner has moisture wicking properties though. The moisture can also be due to your gloves' lack of ventilation. Breathability is another thing to look for in snowboarding gloves. If you know for a fact that your gloves are fine and it is just your hands, here is a suggestion that will also save you some dough. Look into purchasing UnderArmor snow glove liners. You can wear the liner under your current gloves. I love UnderArmor coldgear because they simply work as promised. They keep you warm, wick away the sweat, and keep the elements out.
