Count on the Burton AK Clutch gloves in cold, nasty weather conditions when you still need good dexterity.

are these good gloves for park snowboarding
These gloves are very comfortable and very warm. Regarding the reviews that they get wet mostly come from those who do not use the Nikwax that is provided with them. It is provided for a reason. USE IT! Leather is not waterproof unless it is treated and the Nikwax works FANTASTIC. Leather is the best material for a glove because it is durable and keeps out the cold chilly winds. Bottom line great glove if taken care of and treated correctly.
good glove but...
After reading the reviews I learned that the Glove runs big... that is a LIE! I got a large and can't even fit my had it them. I don't even have huge hands... look like ill gloves though...
Great Style, Crappy waterproof
I bought some of these because they are the coolest looking gloves i have seen.
Leather is not a good water proofer, goretex is.
If you are a beginner, or love to play in the snow, i would not suggest these. By the end of the day, i end up wringing them out, and have to dry them, i cant use them two days in a row without throwing them in the dryer.
Bought these for my boyfriend
I had got these for my boyfriend for our anniversary the Sizzurp ones and in the picture they look like they are blue and purple well they aren't they are strictly purple however he loves them and they keep your hands VERY warm. =]
Good looking, waterproof gloves that perform wonderfully for about a season. If you ski the rubber from your poles will rip the thumbs and they will no longer be waterproof after a year in wet or hard riding. Be prepared to get props from the jealous public.
Nice and fancy gloves, breathable but I must admit they get wet pretty quick if snow is melting during sunny days, I bought them for cheap so I won't complain plus they protect well from cold but I won't say that they're really technical and extreme conditions gloves...
They look good, are cozy, and have a high quality construction. They fit a bit tight, but the low profile fit was what I wanted. They come with wax for waterproofing. I didn't use the wax and they started soaking through the leather on the third trip. I haven't put the wax on yet, so I can't vouch for whether it prevents the soaking I've seen.
Great Glove with one small flaw
This is the second pair of AK clutch gloves that I have owned (the previous pair was stolen), and they are by far the best gloves that I have ever owned. They are completely waterproof, very comfy, and will keep your hand's warm at very cold temperatures. The only problem is that this year's model does not include what I call "idiot straps" (last year's model included them); the elastic bands that go around your wrist so you can take your gloves off without fear of losing them.
Not very warm
Good looks, bad warmth. After 3 hours of carving it hardly got wet and made the insulation feel cold. Fingers got cold really fast. Still good gloves :)
A Clutch that never needs replacing!
This year I was lookin for something that I could use all year round and at every mountain I rode. This glove is perfect for bombin around on your local slope to riding aloft powder in the glades. I highly recommend using the NixWax that is supplied with the glove for durability and longevity. So far I am very impressed with this product and recommend them to anyone.
Bought last year's Sahara colour in large and they are awesome! So awesome I'm gutted they are getting worn. I've never had wet hands and I've ridden a day in solid rain. I've never had cold hands either. This years design isn't quite up to last years which guts me 'cause I want another pair!
