Gore Tex Gloves - Yes or No?

Is it a good idea to "invest" on Gore tex gloves if you have a mid-budget? Are they worth it? Also, which brand would you recommend?

Thank you all..

There is nothing wrong with GoreTex gloves. How much of a premium do they cost over the other gloves you are considering?

I am not a gear guru, but the cheapest I have seen are Dakine Titans (which I think have some goretex) for ~$60'ish.

If you're on a budget and are concerned about the premium on gore-tex look for closeouts on previous years gloves/mitts. Closeouts can usually be picked up between 40 and 70.

Several years ago, out of frustration in finding yet another pair of expensive gloves didn't hold up, I picked up a cheap pair of Head gloves while at one of the box "club" stores. Those things are fantastic. Full gauntlet w/ bungie, contoured fingers, etc, very much like gloves costing $70+...just not goretex, but they don't seem to get any more damp than the goretex gloves I had. I get two seasons from a pair before they start to unravel, same as a pricey pair. I'm on my 3rd pair and have another shelved for next season. Best 14 bucks out there, IMO.

I also have a pair of the Head gloves from Costco, picked them up about five years ago for $10. They are a little bulky but they are the warmest, driest gloves I own. I actually rarely wear them because they are just too warm most of the time. I also have some Burton Gore-tex gloves that are great.
