    Nicely priced, but durability is suspect

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    On my second pair of the Empire Gore-Tex Gloves. They're great at keeping your hands totally dry on those soaking-wet spring days and deep mid-winter powder days, thanks to the Gore-Tex membrane. Not the warmest gloves, but they do the trick down to about 20 degrees. Anything colder and your hands will be a bit chilly, especially if it's windy on the mountain. Overall, they're great for the price, but don't expect them to last more than 30 - 40 days of use, as my last pair prematurely frayed at the end of last season.

    Best gloves for the money!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    This glove is the ideal light to mid weight Gore-Tex option. It is very low bulk and has excellent dexterity. The design is very ergonomic and has a nice snug fit. I have found that it is pretty warm especially when I am moving around. The insulation is a little lightweight for those really cold days. It is a top notch all around glove when the temperature is between 18 and 35 degrees fahrenheit. If you have great circulation and your hands sweat a lot, this will be your go to glove for most days on the hill. If you run a little colder, it would be your warmer weather glove.

    This is a very durable glove with a tough leather palm which wraps around the finger tips. You don't have to worry about your snowboard ratchets wearing down the finger tips long before the rest of the glove is beat. I love this glove for skinning on really cold days too. It is the perfect all around mid-lightweight glove both in and out of bounds.

    If you have any questions about this glove or any other, please contact me at and I will be happy to help you out.


    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Just picked these bad boys up for the upcoming season. Love the brilliant Rasta colorway, affordable price point (considering they're Gore-Tex), and waterproof Gore-Tex membrane. Seriously, I don't think you'll find another Gore-Tex glove in the same price range with similar features.

    They're decently warm, with low-bulk insulation and a super-soft lining material. I'd say they're probably good for riding in temps ranging from the mid-teens up to the low-forties. Haven't had to test their Gore-Tex waterproofing out yet, as Utah's been lacking on deep powder this season. Hopefully, I'll get to use these for their intended use- slaying deep powder!

    Oh yeah, the touchscreen fingertips work great! As my first touchscreen-compatible gloves, I'm thoroughly impressed with the ability to navigate through my phone and snap pics on the mountain.

    The best for the price.

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    In my opinion, when factoring in both price and performance, these are the best gloves Burton makes. Sure, they make 'better' gloves, but they're also more expensive. These ones get the balance between price/performance just right. In addition to the obvious benefits of Gore-Tex, I much prefer the toughness of synthetic leather, and the fit of these gloves is great - not too bulky but still warm enough.

    Perfect Gloves

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    These gloves weren't so thick that I couldn't feel anything, but they kept my hands at a nice ambient temperature all day in the snow at Tahoe.
    They feel great, they breathe and they fit well.
    Loved them.

    Does this glove really have a lifetime manufacturer warranty? Burton is great for replacing anything under warranty, but most of the other gloves say 1 year warranty (makes sense, gloves don't last forever).
