chuckywrote a review of Burton Empire Glove on October 19, 2015
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.
