Depends what you are looking for. If you want support, Dakine makes a pair, and there are many others do as well. There is also support built inside gloves like the Burton Impact line.

If you're looking for preventive and especially if you've broken/fractured your wrist in the past like I have, I would suggest you look into OTS wrist braces which literally stop your wrist from hyper-extending back based on what type of degree of freedom stop you install on it. They're pricey but they're worth every penny.

Government - If you think the problems they created are bad, just wait until you see their solutions.

Screw being normal

Check out Level Gloves, very discrete looking gloves with built in wrist guards. I have a pair and they've saved me more times than I can remember

Burton support mitts and gloves are the best I've seen. Built in wrist guards that dont allow your hands to bend backwards. I use Dakine wrist guards currently but they're not very good. On a scale of 1-10 on protection i'd give them a 4.

I agree with extremo - i have the R.E.D wrist guards (and i like them) but i wish i had of bought the burton impact mittens. But I already dropped over $100 on mitts and wrist guards (after I broke my wrist) before I discovered these and was unable to return what i had already purchased.

I have Dakine, no complaints
Fits under my gloves perfectly and is supportive. Others I tried on hurt my wrist a bit, (my wrists are a little boney)
but these fit nicely.

I bought some Demon wrist guards on clearance. Fit a little snug in my gloves but do the job, nothing fancy but nothing broken either

I used the burton impact gloves. i don't really need them cuz i don't fall as much as i used to but i like the safety net. Even tho they are convenient, they aren't waterproof. so once water gets absorbed in the gloves, you're stuck w wet/cold gloves for the rest of the day. I'm looking into picking up goretex gloves + separate wrist guards.

Ive got the level halfpipe gloves as well and am very happy not only with the built-in wrist guards but the quality and warmth of them, I believe I found them on ebay for $90 shipped.

P.S. Is that a Koala your standing with in your avatar?
