I have been using the same pair of regular Burton Gore-Tex mitts around three to five days a year for snowboarding since 2005 and they finally bit the dust. So I purchased these thinking they would be an upgrade from the regular pair for this season, but there were noticeable differences from the gloves I received and the ones advertized.

The main reason I am returning these Mitts is because they were missing the finger dividers that I was expecting, but everything else just sealed the deal.

I still think Burton makes an amazing product, I just feel this was a quality control issue on their part.

I love Backcountry's amazing tech service and return policy, and want to thank them for all of the help that they have provided.

Having never heard of this Norwegian company, I was skeptical. But then again, they live in the snow practically year around, so I pulled the trigger, and I was glad I did! This is one of the best fitting gloves I have tried on, fits true to size (I have 7.5" length and 8.5"palm) and the Large fits quite literally like a glove. One of my favorite things are the fact that they payed attention to the important things I was looking for: Gore-Tex was a must, PrimaLoft (I hear its good), wrist leash (a must, how do all gloves not have these?), leather palm, and slim profile with good articulation (I hate big bulky gloves that might as well be mitts). These have a small gauntlet which is meant to be incorporated with wrist gators (another thing that all Jackets should have now).
I am really stoked for these gloves and I am going to Durango , CO in March. So I will let you guys know how they do when I get back!
