Default Durable Gloves / Mitts

I'm on my third pair of gloves / mitts this season alone. They keep tearing. I cant stand it anymore and am in the market for something better.

I've been purchasing mid range, non leather gloves and mittens. They tear in the palm right at the seam. I imagine this is because of grabs. I wear them only snowboarding and do not drag my hand on the snow much. I also buy the proper size in my opinion. They seem to fit well. I prefer gloves to mittens as I find mittens make my hands sweat more than gloves.

Any recommendations to some quality leather palmed gloves/ mittens I can wear in any condition?

I bought some $65 Dakine gloves a few years ago and they have been great. They have a rubber/textured material on the palm side, but I don't do many grab, so I might not be the best resource for glove reviews. The gloves are great at keeping my hands relatively warm and dry and they are they best I have ever purchased.

I've also got the Burton Impacts, as well as Burton RPM and Defcon Man In Black. I've got a thing for animal hide :/

I'd definitely recommend springing for the Impacts because a) the wrist protection is excellent b) the palm is rugged c) they are quite waterproof d) they're the warmest gloves I've work. They do have a break-in period though, 2 or 3 sessions. I got mine on sale for $26.00 so look around, they're worth every penny for the peace of mind alone.

I have Swany crossover mitts and they rock. I had a pair of Drop gloves that served me well for 3 years.

I have some burton mittens and some grenade leather mittens. the grenades are defiantely getting wore because of grabs and they are losing their water resisitance, however, the burtons I have had for probably 5 years and just this season I have decided its time for them to check into retirement. theyve been very wonderful, they have that sort of tezturized rubbery material on the palms...

I dont like gloves. maybe try a thinner set of mittens so you dont get so sweaty and I have gloves for pretty much any temperature range. I DEFINATELY glove up according to temperature...

I have the same problem, my gloves keep tearing at the palm but mainly at the tip of the fingers, I've been through many higher end and lower end, most brands, my older brother though has a pair of kevlar coated ones which he has had atleast 10 years (no kidding), no tearing what-so-ever. I 've bee looking for a pair of those but haven't found anything to match those. Anyone know of any kevlar coated ones (preferably all the way over the fingertips) I would be willing to part with a fair sum for a pair of those.
