Just bought some Dakine Scouts with liners. Can't wait to try them this season. I am thinking just liners for spring time, just gloves for cold days in Tahoe, and liner and glove for FREEZING days in Tahoe.

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.
Its been a while, but after looking around Vancouver for a pair of gloves I liked (and failed) I decided to buy some Level Half Pipes from here > Action Sports Protective Gear: Buy From The Original Protective Gear Store - XSportsProtective

Figured after buying gloves, liners (gloves i liked had no liners and my gloves get disgusting with none) and wrist guards (yeh i'm a retard and need to learn how to fall) it'd cost a similar amount or more.

Anyway, ordered on Saturday with $20 off coupon code and received 'em today (tuesday morning). They cost me $137 including shipping. I may have to pay another $13 to my companies UPS account for tax, not sure yet. $150 seems ok to me after seeing the options on offer. So anyone from Canada who can't find 'em in the shops that's the lowdown.

The Half Pipes seem pretty big, def no pipe glove but i'd be in same position with any glove that'd fit over wrist guards anyway. Lets see how they hold out. Thinking i may shoe-goo the right forefinger and thumb because i'm always ripping through them fastening/releasing bindings.

My Candy Grind The CG came in and I got to pick them up. Jury is out on the durability and dryness (haven't tested them actually riding) but the warmth is off the scale. My hands were sweating just wearing them for one minute to get a feel.

My POW Sultan's arrived today. Impressed so far, but the real test will be on the mountain.

Nice touch including a sachet of Nikwax, too.

Just a point of reference for anyone considering Dakine Titan gloves (they're one of the most recommended on this forum). They fit *small*. I don't have big hands, but I have long fingers; and, I generally fit into an XL glove. Anyhow, I received some Titans in the mail, and could barely get my hands through the cuff area to put them on. Once on, I couldn't even make a fist without discomfort. There's no way I could wear them with the extra liners they come with. I was surprised and had to double check that they were actually XLs (they were). So, I'll be returning them. It's a shame since it seems like a nice glove and, again, they come pretty well recommended on this forum.
Anyhow, just a data point for any one considering them and can't go anywhere to try them on first.

Even a well insulated glove won't necessarily keep your hands warm. More often it depends on blood circulation. I use the Defcon Team Goliath and it's expidition rated and my hands still get cold. Get 2 pairs of good gloves and stock up on hand warmers.

Bump.

Can anyone comment on the Candy Grind Hand Bags?

I'm thinking about getting these mitts, and I like the fact that they have a removeable liner and that you can unzip them to use your fingers (or cool off).

Any reviews?


I currently have the Burton Oven Over-Mitt and they seem like good gloves (few seasons now and no signs of any wear and tear) but they are too hott for me. NEVER use the liners they came with (except for driving gloves now) and just about always have to have the little zipper vent open because my hands will start sweating.

I read above CheezeforSteeze just got some Candy Grinds and they are very warm... what model did you get?

Lots of good info in this thread so far. Anyone have any input or feedback about gloves for kids as well?

I've looked at a few places locally & haven't seen near as much technology or choices for kids which is crazy because they're the ones who need it the most. There were a few times last year that our day got cut short due to cold fingers for the little shorties.

Pow Tanto Gloves are the best gloves I've worn. The inner liner stays dry through all day riding, keeps you very warm with some mighty fine insulation, and durable to the point that I haven't replaced it for 2 years running, 30+ days a year of use.

Mileage varies though. Some people ripped theirs through 1 weeks' use. I don't know how, maybe because I dont grab my edges, but mine are still solid.
