Default snowboard gloves with wristguards

I need to start looking for a pair of gloves that have wrist guards built into them. my wrists seem to be getting weaker with age, and with the continuous strain of falling from doing jumps and jibs i can see my wrists not lasting too well in the long term.

i think it's time to do my due dilligence and try and find a pair of gloves that will help protect my wrists...if you guys do own any, what brands are they and where did you buy them from? I checked at sportcheck (canadian store) and some of the local hills but nothing that look good in quality, and would easily tear if i were to slide my hand on some rough snow. looking forward to hearing from you gurus

Level gloves are good. Snowboard Gloves with Wrist Guards: In Stock, Free Shipping. Click Here Now to Shop snowboard gloves with wrist guards from Level.
I have the half pipe ones and they're well made.
You could also look at Flexmeter wrist guards. Flexmeter Single Wrist Guards
I don't have any personal experience with these, but they're supposed to be good too. And they might be able to fit under your existing gloves if your gloves aren't too tight.

I have those too...great gloves, they protect really well BUT:

One of the spikes came off, they won't send me a spare. I will fix the hole with silicone or glue.
They are warm...not the warmest gloves, ice sticks to the Kevlar part (fingers)

Ah that's a bummer. How long have you had yours? I've had mine a year and haven't had issues with durability.

I've got the Level gloves too - crashed a few times and, knock on wood, no problems yet.

30 days last season and 2 this one. Those spikes are a bit overkill...but good to scrape off crud from your bindings. Other than that ONE spike popping out they're perfect.

I use the Level gloves. I have the Fly model in a glove (not mitt). I have had my pair for 4 years and love them. My left glove (lead leg) has absolutely no signs of wear. I finally had to do some repairs on the tips of just 2 fingers on the right glove (rear leg) due to dragging my hand when I'm playing around doing toe-side euro carves. I will replace them next year with another paid or Level gloves.

i was expecting to see some atrocius looking styles but these actually look pimp.

-- when you guys say it's not that good in keeping your fingers warm, is that in terms of the ice just sticking to the kevlar?

I've been using Level gloves off and on for the last 13 years. The latest model have kevlar palms and finger tips which are very tough and durable. The biomex built-in wrist guard works pretty well for me.
