    Posted: Mar/15/2013 at 10:01am
I have been wearing a pair of Kombi gloves for the past couple years and it is time to get a new pair. I have heard everything from get a good pair of Gore-Tex gloves to get a pair of FlyLow leather gloves, and on and on.

I like the strap that most Burtons have now so if you take off your glove it is still strapped to your wrist.

Any advice or recomendations and why? Thanks.

What conditions are you planning on using them for? What riding style? Do you generally have your hands in the snow a lot or on your feet all day?

Leather can be great, but not on warm days or if you draggin hands on the snow all the time...they may get too wet.

Gore-tex is nice, comes with a price tag tho.

Neoprene based gloves are great for spring conditions in my opinion.

I'd stay away from leather for boarding because they'll absorb water, get wet and then suck to wear.
 
If you can afford it, get some with a lightly insulated Gore-tex shell and a removeable inner liner. That way, they'll be more versatile from colder to warmer days.
 
Gore-Tex is the best at keeping dry, but there are cheaper fabrics that work okay if you keep your hands out of the snow (hard to do on pow days).
 
Most decent gloves I've seen these days have the cuff cinch straps that you can attach to your jacket, if you want that. I like to ride pow, so I like the over-the-jacket-cuff style gloves, which keep the snow out better IMO.
 
Also if it is normally very cold where you ride, consider a pair of mittens. They're a little annoying until you get used to them, but much warmer than finger gloves on those colder days.

If it's cold... get a mit, 
Otherwise for most normal conditions look at the Hestra Heli.

dakine raider gloves leather palms and fingers, gore tex and  nice long cuff pretty warm but not smothering, also pretty cheap for what you get I got mine for 65 bucks. I'd actaully take those over any hestra glove that doesn't have gore tex and for any that do you would pay more then twice as much. get a second pari of cheap gloves for spring riding and groomers days that way you can tripod and drag you hand without ruiing your nice gloves I have a pair of the flylow's for that.

I recently bought some POW gloves I really like the build quality, nice lining and supple leather. I also like the low pro design fits under my jacket well. I read someone saying leather isnt the best at water proofing but waterproofing isn't as important in my case as keeping warm.

l basically always went with dakine, recently with the gautlet. Very good gloves, great pricing, never get cold too. Only thing was the cuffs were a little wide hence l sometimes have trouble inserting it underneath my jacket

It really doesn't matter much. All gloves are pretty good now a days. Get some that matches your fit. It's spring time now, so park gloves will be nice. If you want one pair for all conditions, get a pair with vents like burton gore tex. Also comes with a pair of liners for extra warmth. Though I never used both at the same time. The glove itself is warm enough under below freezing temps.

+1 for DaKine gloves, but most brands today have decent glove options.

I'm looking for good gloves as well. My waterproof gloves are shit and leak. I've had them for less than a season. What do you folks think about Pow gloves? (http://powgloves.com/collections) They seem to get good feedback. I wear mitts and their "trigger" style of mitts have me interested. At $80 a pop, I hope they are worth it...

I got the goretex kombi's they definately keep you dry and they are warm!  I wont buy another pair of Kombi's though this is the third pair of the same glove... (thank god for returns.) and they all have ripped at some kind of seam. but i do recommend the goretex, ill never go without it again!
It comes and it goes, get it while it lasts.

Thanks for the replies. AS usual, it seems like it is all a matter of preference.

Definitely depends what you're riding, weather, conditions etc. The gloves I bought in Australia for snowboarding were definitely far too thin for conditions here in Canada.

I'm a big fan of the Burton AK line, specifically the oven mitt when it's cold and the Clutch when it's not too cold. They are both pricey but can be found for up to 50% off now.

Coolz the gauntlet is supposed to go over your jacket sleeve not under it, works way way better.
