Gloves for big guys?
 
I'm a pretty big guy (6'6" 245) and wear a xxl or xxxl glove. I've not found much of a selection for those sizes but I have found these. Also I'm completely new to all of this as I've only been snowboarding a handful of times but I do thoroughly enjoy it. Which of these two gloves should I get for snowboarding/sledding/four wheeling etc?

Hestra Heli Glove from Backcountry.com in a size 12


Marmot Randonee Glove > Winter Gloves + Free Shipping & No Sales Tax in xxl

My biggest concerns are warmth and being waterproof (aren't everyones...)

Kincos offers XXL gloves.
They are 10$ pigskin gloves originally made to be work gloves basically but a ton of people ski/snowboard in them and they have pocket followings in places like Jackson Hole. They aren't ever mentioned much on this forum though, I don't know why. I use them and will vouch for them. They'll save you a ton of cash. I'd google them and find more stuff on them if it sounds like something up your alley. If you care about your looks/image on the mountain these might not be for you.

I'll look into them but am really looking towards something geared for snowboarding/playing in the snow.

They are great for that. They actually have some labeled ski gloves.
