First off, let me say that Im a huge fan of Burton's AK line but I'm not overly impressed with this glove. Although the 3L Hover mitt is quite stylish and virtually impossible for water to penetrate, the gloves' fit is feels completely wrong! Wearing all three gloves provided will definitely keep you warm but at what cost. The glove becomes bulky. I found wearing only the 1 inside liner and the shell is much more comfortable. You have the option to pull off the outer shell while keeping the inner liner on, which is great for doing up your bindings or changing your playlist on your iPod. Keep in mind that putting your outer shell back on can be a pain in the ass trying to match the male a female hook-and-loop parts so that your gloves become one again. The cuffs are longer than last year's model, but I still have issues getting a good snow tight seal over my AK Jackets. The wrist is very tight while the length of the fingers is too long. I have more than an inch of play, which is a bit annoying. The design appears to be more durable than last year with improved leather and leather treatment included with your gloves. I will be putting the glove through the ultimate backcountry test over the next 2 months. My snowboarding tour begins tomorrow. I'll keep you posted with just how well the AK 3L Hover stands up to the challenge.
