I'm gonna have to second the level recommendation. Maybe not necessarily the supe pipes. I've been using the fly gloves and Mitts. The fingers are Kevlar reinforced and hold up well to the dusting and scraping that boarders do. The liners have optional wrist guards. The wrist guards not only protect wrist but make good hammer for beating on various things like knocking snow off your board. Highly recommended. O yea, and warm too.

Swany X-cell II Mitt! I've tried many different gloves (Burton Ronin with park glove inserts, Northface Montana, Dakine Titan) and my hands were always cold. I used the Swany's all last season and they are still going strong. They are a little pricey, but totally worth it in my opinion.

THe warmest most comfy gloves I have ever owned have been Burton. I beleive that warm hands and a dry ass are the two most critical part of enjoying our sport so I buy the top of the line burton gloves and I find they work awesome.

Yes. A bit overkill I agree. But really good to scrape ice off your bindings base when you need to. Indestructible gloves.

Anyone from Canada ordered from this site before > Action Sports Protective Gear: Buy From The Original Protective Gear Store - XSportsProtective ?
Keen on some Level gloves for this season but not sure on all the extra tax n shit to get em into the country...
Maybe just head out n get some Swany niceness if that's not looking good... or anyone know anywhere that sells Level in Canada? Think i saw one or two odd pairs of ones i didn't want in Whistler last year but nothing else since...

i have ordered from them before however i have a po box in the states i use and go across the border and pick items up myself to avoid taxes and shipping fees. Ordering items directly to canada can be pricy, your usually looking at 15+ dollar shippying for an item as small as a pair of shoes, 12% duty, and occasionally the seller will charge taxes ontop of the duty for shipping to canada.

my advise to you if your close to the boarder is to get an account with a parcel recieving service that's right across the boarder, mine is 13 dollars a year for membership and 1 dollar a week to hold a parcel, pretty cheap considering most websites offer free shipping and no taxes.
