Making the switch to gloves, recommendations before i hit the shops
I've been faithfully using a set of Burton Universe Mitts for the last 8+ years. I think the time has finally come to upgrade them. For a while I've wanted gloves to have more dexterity while wearing them on the slopes.
I mostly freeride, in a lot of different conditions (Northeast). So a versatile glove would be great, what I'm looking for:
For gloves dakine is now my backup. They are awesome gloves and lasted me 3 years. I have a pair of level fly w/biomex that I really like and are my #1 glove. I just got some celtec trigger mitts for christmas that are awesome, got 15 days on them before taking my leg out....
The dakines are in a good price range, super warm and durable.
Dakine has some really really good high end products however their lower end gloves are rather unreliable. I like the ones with the wrist guard plates in them ( im at the er with my buddy who broke his wrist going for his first cork 360 this morning lol i landes mine but i had the wrist guard ones so hes s.o.l for going cheap on gloves)
