Excellent to buy at this price, its water proof and works even below zero degree temperature. Its stiched to perfection and fine. Fitting is great & felt comfortable to go for fun in snow. Best for windy weather also.
I bought size XL and could have possibly gone a size smaller but they were not cumbersome to use. On occasions my fingers did feel a little cold but nothing like others complaining in my skiing group. Certainly they were much better then gloves I had used previously. One other in my group bought the same pair and he was happy with them too.
The elastic bands are great at keeping the gloves on your wrist when using your hands and the material loops make putting them on easier too.
Great pair of gloves for snowboarding or skiing. A more secure cuff would have suited my jacket better, but the kept my hands cosy and the snow out.
These gloves are exceptional in terms of grip, it's why I got them. However, upon using them an apparent flaw has come to light. Two flaws really.
The glove fingers are wide making it hard to use the snowboard bindings. The cuffs are two small for the size of the hand and result in snow getting in your glove.
This kind of ruined my first experience. I fell over twice and each time the glove just resulted in my arm/hand being frozen by melting snow and ice.
In terms of waterproofing. They seem ok for one to three hours use, hard to tell beyond that due to the cuff size. I do like the colour.
They need a inner glove cuff adding that goes further up the arm to prevent any snow entry, especially as "Free" boarders tend to sit down a lot.
Thank you for your feedback. It's very helpful to keep improving our products to make your snowboarding experience more enjoyable. I will pass along these details to our product managers to work on future collections.
Have a nice day,
