About the cost. They aren't just protective gloves. They are really high quality gloves. After two midwest seasons there is nearly zero wear on mine. If they came out with a trigger finger style mitt I would buy those in a heart beat.
I tore a finger open on mine in 3 months.. it's now duck taped and works fine but for $100 gloves.......

My levels seem good so far... only thing i don't like is they're the gauntlet, long wrist kinda deal. Hard to get under jacket cuffs

I had a pair of Level gloves from 1998 where I did that (I got them replaced via warranty as you should have). Of course back then I was just starting to snowboard and dragging my hand everywhere (do you drag you hands in the snow a lot?)

I actually switched to mitts (fewer seams to tear/leak/lose heat), but my friend has a pair of Level halfpipe gloves for 4-5 season at 15-20 days a season and aside from the velcro wearing out a little, the kelvar fingertips are in great condition.

I say this is the 3 seasons... They probably have 100 days on them so far.... I rarely hand drag. Look brand new.

Plus figure it this way
  • Wrist guards alone $20
  • New gloves $60 -$75
Your roughly $90 in the two so $100 for a pair of built in is about a wash.

Sorry to hear about the break. Always fall with angry hands, less leverage and fall properly, easier said then done but a must to learn.

I'm been learning how to fall properly, but sometimes it just happens too fast to fall right.

Yep. And with buying separate you have to hope that the glove will fit the guard while still fitting your hand.
