Default Grenade gloves any good?

My son is dead set on a pair of Grenade snowboarding gloves. I have not heard any good reviews (as far as waterproof, warm, etc.) on any Grenade gear. Does anyone have any input on Grenade snowboard gear - particularly gloves? Any other good suggestions for snowboarding gloves, that are somewhat waterproof and warm?

Me and my frined both bought a pair of grenade gloves because they were on sale. They were different models from eachother too. The gloves were pretty comfortable and fit nicely to our hands. We went out to the mountains the next weekend and about two runs in, these things were SOAKED. My hands were freezing. We went to the bathroom to dry them off with that thing that blasts hot air to dry your hands, and it barely did anything. We went back out and the gloves legit started to freeze so we just took them off and rode without them. It was so much better than riding down the mountain in cold wet gloves. Don't get grenades if you want to stay warm.

I got some free Rome Sanchez gloves for free and I use them. They're good but i got a rip in them pretty quick.

Drop gloves are good too. I bought a pair of goretex ones on sale and they are awesome.

I have to say that my Grenade First-Aid gloves/mittens were HORRIBLE! Not waterproof at all.

yep, you got it... Grenade gloves suck! I bought 2 pairs actually... what a mistake. They look the part but wow, they get soaked almost instantly and since they get wet so fast, your hands freeze. Look cool but totally not worth it.

I wear ak gloves under and they are amazing... they are really thin and can actually use my hands. I wear converts on top and they do me just fine.
