I am a big fan of the Hestra gloves...I picked up a pair of these for last season and my hands were too warm!

I almost got these but didn't...great reviews though.

And these are for the person who wants to use their index finger in a mitt.

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


I bought Red Park Gloves from CandyGrind last year. They were really warm, but mehhhhh they definitely wore quickly and didn't keep the weather out all that well. They would constantly be soaked half way through the day. Then again they are Park gloves and i was all over the place with them. Really nice low profile fit though.

I also didn't hit em with any waterproofer when i got them so maybe that would be the way to go.

Sort of a Necro-bump... I bought the CandyGrind Handbags last season and they were great. The zipper is hard to unzip at first, but after it breaks in a little its great. No signs of wearing really... I don't ever use a tow rope though, so there isn't much to really tear them up.

Get the half pipe version if you don't want the spikes.
I have them and they're great.

Edit: Did not realize the thread was that old.
I blame whoever ressurected that one. Oh well

If you go with a glove you obvious loose warmth, but what you loose with warmth you have the opportunity to gain with mobility. Where people fck up is when they by a glove with crappy mobility (which covers most gloves). IMO Hestra is the best glove you can buy.

For warmth its gotta be a mitt, and there are a ton out there that fit the bill since mobility is shot anyway with all mitt designs.

I never understood what people use their hands for so much while snowboarding that they need "mobility". I've worn nothing but mitts for the past 3 or 4 years and never thought to my self "man i wish i could use the dexterity of my finger tips right now". All i need my hands to do is strap in and grab my board.

unless you experience it its hard to say. Everything from reaching into your pocket to grab you pass, ski lock, lens cleaner to making adjustments to your bindings or boats.

Dakine Cobra gloves. Holding strong after 160 days or so.

I was a little scared from that guys review of the park glove because I just ordered the handbags 2 days ago. How does the pipe glove liner hold up?
