A low-bulk everyday riding glove.
A Burton team favorite on those warmer days when you don't need a big and bulky insulated glove, the AK Leather Tech Glove offers great grip, dexterity, and durability. The brushed fleece lining offers plenty of warmth, and the new extended cuff length keeps snow from creeping up your sleeves.

- Q & A
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I was hesitant to order because of the previous review, but glad I did! No color bleed issues at all, and I put this glove through the wringer in the past week, from sub 20 degree lift rides to sweaty hikes to the road. Great fit, quality, and finish. Comparable to my Hestras, but for about half the price.
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Needed a good quality spring glove for my upcoming trip out west. I have always found the quality of the Burton gloves to be excellent. Unfortunately, after a few hours of riding, I decided to take a break and grab a bite to eat. To my surprise, when I took off the gloves before entering the cafe, I noticed that both of my hands have turned black from the gloves. Even with vigorous scrubbing the "dye" would not come off. I was quite embarrassed handing my money to the cashier.
Are these waterproof or at least very water resistant?
I would say these gloves have a minimal water resistant leather. I would suggest buying a waterproofer for these like nixwax, sno seal etc. For the money your spending, might as well protect them fully and have a very good water resistant leather with no worries.
