Not a good ski glove.

I just got back from a ski trip in Vail and both days my fingers went numb. The weather was about 20 degrees and snowing, but I have seen these conditions many times before and never had this problem. The gloves do not handle moisture at all and once they get any amount of wetness they are done for the day. I also agree with the other reviewer that these are very bulky gloves and hard to fit under the cuff of a jacket. I do not recommend these gloves.

Very Goood Gloves

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I purchased the xplodes to replace my worn out xcell gloves. The xplodes are a little bit bulkier than the xcells and a bit warmer. Though, when riding the lift with a decent wind, my fingers still got cold. On a really cold day at Whistler, I did slip a heat back in the back of the glove and my fingers stayed toasty. I have a jacket from Strafe with bigger sleeves, and the gloves fit under the cuffs.

The fit is a little different than the xcells, with the fingers being a bit longer. I treated these initially with sno-seal and they stayed dry in some heavy snow. As far as warmth, they are really good but not perfect. I have a buddy, like one of the other reviewers, who swears by those Costco head outlast gloves.

Cool looking gloves but SOOO bulky

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

My first impression of these gloves was that the *HUGE*, puffy, bulky gauntlet doesn't fit under most jacket cuffs, this is a major disappointment unless you want to look like an old man on the mountain. This design just doesn't make sense, Swany could have used half the leather on the gauntlet, the gloves would actually fit the human hand and these gloves would look and perform beautifully but they just made it way too bulky! I'm not sure how its possible but these gloves are also not warm, I've had X-Cells and X-Plodes, they are big heavy duty gloves and my hands stay warmer with cheap costco gloves, I really can't explain why my fingers freeze in these beasts but they do, in both models and I have to say I'm about done with Swany, over-priced, too bulky and well...just not warm

Swany Bad Boys. Pro Patrol uses them up in Alaska and in Colorado. Lots of cold days, but no cold hands.

I would say the Black Diamond Guide glove, very heavy duty, waterproof, and extremely insulating
