Blake T.wrote a review of DAKINE Sabre Glove - Men's on February 15, 2011
I really dig the style of these gloves, and they are just as stylish to wear.I found they were a little small - fitted fine, but getting the right one on was a battle that my mit wearing friends would enjoy as they waited for me to get ready. They performed pretty well for most tasks, I could do up the shoelaces on my snowboard boots without taking them off.They were brilliant in most of the weather i faced in two weeks at Niseko, but they tended to absorb water. My hands stayed dry, but the leather once wet wasn't nearly as warm and they would stick to the frozen lift metalwork if you weren't careful.With regular waterproofing treatment they would stay dry, but still cold in the most extreme temps we faced. That said I doubt I would get much warmer without going for a mitten
I would have liked a retention strap for pulling these off on the lifts, but there was no chance of them coming off by accident.
Not really a fault of the glove, but my jacket was huge, and the short cuff of these gloves and the poor fit of my jacket meant i was wearing a bracelet of snow most powder days.
