Anyone tried these? Supposedly super thin for great dexterity, completely waterproof, and super warm.

Check out the reviews on these, or at least the one in the video...

Amazon.com: Customer Reviews: Seirus Innovation Men's Xtreme All Weather Gloves

Even looking at them I wouldn't consider wearing them snowboarding. If a glove has a good liner and proper fitting insulation, taking the outer off to zip up a jacket, adjust music, etc is not a problem. They have other gloves, but I get sketchy when I read about how great/warm/blah that glove is supposed to be when they have goretex gloves on their website too.

So buy a nice liner and mitts? Is that what you are telling me? I would just rather have the one glove that gives me dexterity and warmth.

My son and I both use level fly with the biomex wrist guards. They are super durable and very warm down to -20 is the coldest so far. I have some dakine scouts too and for the price they are great

I also use Level Superpipe's. they're not super warm, you can feel chill on your fingertips on lift but they're really comfy, really dry and seem durable (I only had one season with them). Not I'm planning to buy two halfpipes for my brother and his wife: I don't think that they're spike people like me

I understand what you're saying but I haven't found a glove with excellent dexterity and excellent warmth to the point I can use them in the worst/coldest conditions.

To be more specific I was speaking about gloves themselves in the previous post. Personally my hands get cold fairly easily. Obviously mitts don't give you the dexterity needed for things like mp3, zippers, but it's been my experience with the Dakines that I don't need to go to a mitt to keep my hands warm and I'm able to do almost everything I need to do with them on. If I need to do something like light up a cigarette or change tracks I can pull my hand out with the liner still on, but I'm usually doing that on the lift so it doesn't matter much if it takes a few seconds. As long as I can move my fingers easily with the gloves on I'm happy, but I'll sacrifice a little dexterity for warmth.

The dexterity of a glove and the warmth of a mitt! I don't personally own these but they do look interesting.

I have an amazing pair of Burton mitts that are at least 10 years old. Leather palmed, gortex backed - most of the time they are too hot. They even came with their own stuff bag.

Thought I'd come here for some recommendations.

I currently have the Burton Oven Over Mitt. Gore-Tex and had an inner liner.

Only problem... even without the liner, they are EXTREMELY warm.

They even have a little zipper vent that you can open up to get some air flow, but are STILL too warm.


With that said... I'm looking for a mitt with the following features:

- I want an "under" mitt, meaning it tapers off at the wrist to go under your sleeve instead of an "over" mitt which widens to go OVER your sleeve.

- I want something that is not extremely warm because it causes my hands to sweat and the insulation starts getting damp

- I would prefer that it have a vent like my current mitts do, so that if I do start getting warm I can open the vents to cool off


So anybody have experience with something that would work?

TIA

you should def check out the candy grind handbag mitt, they're pretty warm as well but theres a zipper on the side to let them air out or if you need the use of your fingers
