Dakine Wrangler Glove
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Excellent fit, and comfortable. I have not had a chance to try them in the snow yet, but they seem like they will be great for nice sunny days. I am thinking about getting some glove liners for days that I may need the extra protection from the cold.
The only drawback that I think the gloves may have is trying to insert a wet hand back into the glove. The cuffs are not flared out, but a dry hand fits into it fine. The cuff not being flared will help to keep out the snow, and keep it from being bulky.
They are more like wearing an insulated pair of work gloves, then wearing snowboarding gloves. The gloves leave you with a good amount of dexterity, and the leather construction seems durable.
These gloves were exactly what I was looking for. I can't wait till the snow falls to see how well the stand up to the cold and wet. The only reason I did not give it 5 stars, is that I am worried about the cuff, and being able to get wet cold hands into them well. If I run into any problems when I get on to the mountain, I will try to update my review
