I know I may be outside the consensus here, but I generally like the Burton gear I have. However, I have always been hesitant to buy their gloves after having handled them many times in stores. Aside from the most expensive models, they just don't feel like they are well made.
I spent a couple of months last year trying to find the best glove for the money last year in terms of durability and warmth/waterproofing after a 15-year-old pair of Gordini ski gloves finally failed me. I wound up getting the Gordini Stomp II glove for like 25 bucks on sale at a local shop. I used them on 12 trips out last year and 5 this year on top of general everyday wear in the cold weather and they are still like new, still warm and my hands don't get wet. Plus they are comfortable as hell.
You would certainly find better gloves in the upper price ranges but for the money these are pretty tight, IMO.
Having said that, you should certainly try contacting Burton's rider services as well. They treated me well with a minor issue I had in the past.
