New brand of snowboard glove

Guys/Girls.....

Im looking to create a new brand of snowboard glove. Right now
I am in the design phase and am looking to have prototypes produced
for testing this coming season.

It would be great if I could get some feedback from this forum, regarding the following glove
design questions:

1. What was the best value for money glove last season? Why?
2. What new design features would you like to see in a snowboard glove?
3. What are the typical problems with many existing gloves?
4. Do you find clammy/sweaty palms is a problem?
5. Rubber goggle wiper integrated on the side of the index finger or chamois/suede fabric?
6. What price are you prepared to pay for a good quality glove?

Thanks

I'm not sure about number one, but I like the leather gloves that were being produced this season, typical problems are lift line ropes tearing the gloves up, clammy/sweaty palms is never a problem with me, optional; doesn't matter to me really, 40-70.

1. What was the best value for money glove last season? Why? - POW GORE-TEX MITTS I WORE LAST SEASON. GOT 'EM FOR $65
2. What new design features would you like to see in a snowboard glove? I'M A SIMPLE GUY, JUST KEEP MY HANDS WARM AND DRY
3. What are the typical problems with many existing gloves? FALLING APART AT THE SEAMS
4. Do you find clammy/sweaty palms is a problem? NOT REALLY, MY HANDS RUN HOT, I NORMALLY TAKE MY GLOVES OFF ON THE LIFT, UNLESS IT'S SUPER COLD OUT.
5. Rubber goggle wiper integrated on the side of the index finger or chamois/suede fabric? MY POW GLOVES HAVE THE RUBBER WINDSHIELD WIPER, THEY DON'T DO A BETTER JOB THAN THE CHAMOIS FABRIC I'VE HAD ON OTHER GLOVES.
6. What price are you prepared to pay for a good quality glove? UP TO $75

As general comments, here are things that I have liked and hated about gloves:

1) My current pair of Dakines have a real issue with the liner. It's attached at the wrist, but floats free inside the glove. So if I pull out my hand, the fingers come partly out of the shell. When I try to put the hand back in, I'm faced with forcing the liner back into place, which is surprisingly difficult with cold wet hands. This is a total showstopper, and having experienced this I will NEVER buy another set of gloves that even MIGHT have this problem.

2) Stitching that starts coming unravelled pisses me off. Don't make your shit cheap.

3) I love having a goggle-cleaner on the outside of a thumb.

4) I know some people don't like the wrist straps (so you can take your gloves off and dangle them) but I love those and won't buy gloves that don't have them.

5) I like removable liners, but that's not a showstopper either way.

6) I like long cuffs. Some gloves are just too short. Won't buy them.

7) Waterproofing is more important than insulation, if you have to compromise. Wet insulated gloves are useless.
