That's why I reco'd the Titans. No elastic, only a wrist cinch. So you can have a nice snug fit AFTER you get them over the flexmeters.
ahh okay thanks for clarification

You probably want a draw strap like on the Titan, and you definitely don't want gloves/mittens with elastic cuffs. Those won't work for you.

EDIT: For myself, I didn't even have to change size with my Dakine Titans. Medium without Flexy's, medium with Flexy's. That said, it probably depends on how your hands fit in the gloves; eg some people fill out a medium moreso than others. Also note, you do have to be careful when putting on your gloves, as some people have problems tearing the liner. I've never had that problem, as I just take care in putting on my gloves. It's not hard at all after a while and becomes automatic.
hey

quick question i think this is what i am looking for Dakine Titan Mittgloves available online at the Blue Tomato Shop only question is which size i should go, because now i was using L size fingered gloves without any wrist guards, but now as i bought flexmeter guards, wonder do L size going to fit to me, as i am thinking to buy online and not in a actual shop so i wont be able to check fitment etc...

All I can give you is my experience. I owned Dakine Titan Mediums before getting my flexmeters. I bought the medium (silver) single sided flexmeters. They fit under my medium Titans. I would describe the fit as 'snug'.

The cup over the back of the hand sticks up a bit, pushing against the inside top of the glove, and creating an impression from the outside. I don't really care about that though. As long as you don't yank your gloves on, the Titans won't rip and should hold up; mine have done so for three years.

Here's a video on fit I just came across.

Flexmeter Wrist Guards and Snowboard Gloves FAQs - YouTube
I bought my flexmeters from snowboard secrets (who produced the above video) and they were the cheapest I could find, fast, answered all my questions and were generally good to deal with.

I see that other places are only about $1 more than them but just putting it out there.

Thanks for some of the comments about mittens, I've never really considered mittens as they seem weird not being able have your fingers free and wiggly.

(wiggly?)

There you go. Best wrist guard on the market.

Still need to know how to fall properly though.
