I need some good gloves!

So, i think it is time to retire my gloves. I have such a difficult time trying to find a new GOOD pair of gloves. My last two pair of gloves have been a pair of leather drop gloves that didnt last too long. They ended up wearing out really fast on my right hand from doing grabs and such. They were an Okay glove but werent worth money spent. The gloves I have been using since the Drops wore out are a pair of Burton AKs that I got a couple seasons ago. They are a gore-tex glove(dont kno if that makes a real difference??) and have been the best gloves I have ever owned. They have kept my hands warm, dry and have stayed in one piece this entire time. But, they are finally starting to wear out and arent smelling that great. So, what types of gloves have you guys been rocking? Anything that is worth buying out there? I have always liked the fit of the drop gloves, but to be honest, every pair that i have seen at the local shops have seemed to be the cheaper Drop gloves or have been basic Dakine,Burton,Grenade and a whole bunch of Gordini or Swany. So, what should I look for?

Got a pair of POW gloves today. They are the TANT model. Got em in some Rasta colors. Never been a fan of that color scheme but the gloves seem to be Kick Ars! I have yet to soak them in the Nikwax they came with to completely waterproof them. They were really warm while sessioning the park today. Temp was in the mid 20's with sun and packed sow condition. Will let everyone know how the rate next weekend...

My last pair of drop gloves were leather. THey were really good the first two or three days, then they started absorbing water. I would psuggest gettin some of that rub in Nikwax just to see if that might help. Better than tossing new gloves.

Was checking out the Dakine site and didnt see any glove named the Titan... I went to a core shop across the street from me and they are exclusive to Celtik, Grenade and POW. Out of all the gloves I bebated on, these gloves looked the best constructed. Although leather, they came with a Nikwax packet. Actually had enough for my gloves as well as my gf's gloves. I am thinking they should at least last a season.

I ride in Oregon so a good pair of gloves is required. Wettest snow on earth and the gloves are the most important. Mitts will generally stay waterproof longer than gloves simply because they require less stitching. The Burton Gore Mitt is your best bet IMHO.

I had a pair of AK gloves for a couple of seasons. Only glove that I have owned that hasnt ripped along the index finger, or anywhere for that matter. I have owned a few articles of clothing from the AK line and had some of the best results with them. Actually amazed that AK is from burton. I haven't ever been a big burton fan, although I do ride the 2010 cartels and am having a blast ridig with them.
