The glove of choice for professional mountain guides.
Tough enough to withstand hauling loads of gear around, and dexterous enough for digging snow pits, the Burton Men's AK Guide Glove is built for hard-working mountain professionals, as well as hard-charging riders. Fitted with a Gore-Tex membrane and then treated with a DWR finish, the AK Guide fends off moisture but is still breathable enough to wear all day without getting clammy hands.
Realizing that hands are a versatile tool and require a grip of materials to maintain their versatility when sheathed, Burton implemented several different ingredients to make these gloves versatile and high performing. The Dryride 2-layer shell at the cuffs helps to keep moisture out, while leather at the back of the hand provides durability for when you're shoveling a snow pit or building a backcountry booter. The Gnar Guard leather palm is reinforced with Pittards Oiltac leather for increased grip, and the touchscreen-compatible thumb and finger let you check avy conditions on your phone before you go.

- Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
I bought these gloves for my husband who hasn't had new snowboard gloves in years. He absolutely raves about them. They keep his hands warm and dry for a full day of riding. They are super comfortable and allow for plenty of movement.
