A reassuring glove system.
If the Burton Gore-Tex Gauntlet Glove could talk, it wouldn't say much. While other talking gloves might spout off about bells, whistles, graphics, and other hullabaloo, the Gore-Tex Glove would keep it short and sweet, only saying, 'relax, I got this' when you're riding a lift into a dark high-elevation cloud. Or perhaps it might only give you a nod to reassure you that your digits will be safe and warm, even when it looks like you're about to tomahawk down a pillow line.
Why is it so confident? Well, this glove system has a guaranteed waterproof membrane in the already waterproof DryRide Ultrashell. Then there's the removable DryRide Thermex liner glove, which can stand on its own when you are shoveling snow. Or, double down with both together when you are heading into a storm. When things are good out there, you'll be inclined to tell your friends, so Burton made this glove with the Screen Grab Touchgrip palm so you can type away.

- Q & A
These are warm, durable, and look great. The removable liner is a plus, and helps reduce the likelyhood of sweaty glove stink in the spring.
Great snowboard gloves
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
Very warm gloves, even without the liners. True to fit and look sharp.
3 in 1 is always a good time !
Only if your whole body can fit in this bad boy. Gore-Tex guarantee to keep you dry and the dryride thermax liner dries super fast. You can wear just the liner or just the shell or combine both for those mid winter conditions. Has Hidden heater vent pockets and a pre curved fit for extra warmth and comfort.
Quality not all there
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I had this glove for two seasons. I loved it at first. It kept my hands nice and toasty. My hands never got wet thanks to the Gore-Tex. The cuffs worked great to keep snow out. My compaint is that the seam started to tear where the rubbery grip material on the palm meets the fabric in web of my hand. Since the gore-tex fabric wasn't torn I think the glove is still water proof, but it causes a problem for snow and heat. Unfortunately Burton would not grant me any type of credit towards another pair. Thus my low rating. If you want more than one season out of a glove, I'd look elsewhere.
