there alright gloves
there gloves don't last that long there already starting to tear apart on both gloves under ur wrist where the wrist guards are. also they do not keep your fingers warm at all. and during warm days there to hot and your hands sweat a lot in them. but the padding is great and the wrist guards are really good as well.
Not up to Burton standards
Bought the gloves for my son for added protection after having his tendons sliced open in a snowboarding accident. He wore them 4 times and the gloves started to tear and the support bars in the top of the gloves came through the material. He said they were not warm nor did they keep his hands dry. I returned them and got another pair not having read some of these reviews. We will see if the 2nd pair turns out the same.
I've had them for 2 years now. IMO they offer good support and are reasonably worm until temperature drops below -10C (14F). I wore them at -17C with additional liner gloves. They are just water-resistant, not waterproof.
Wrist protection but hands will be wet and cold
I have been using these gloves since Burton orginally made them some years back. I have 2 pairs because after a day of riding they get wet not soaked but wet nevertheless my fingers get cold. For a day of riding I switch to my second pair during a full day session.
Not bad.. but Burton can do better!
They definetaly keep my wrists protected, especially on those icey days! -but they are not by any means warm... i would recommend purchasing a size bigger than you think you need, cause your going to want to use hand warmers! -i thought my fingers were going to fall off the last time I went boarding it was so cold... -overall i think Burton can do better!
good but not great
first off they are sized a bit small and this makes the liner want to come out when you go to take them off. they are super warm, and as far as water proof, use your wet-weather gloves when you go riding in the rain. they have alot of support while still remaining comfortable, but like my helmet its mostly there to remind not to be an idiot~! brown L, worn 5 times so far
OK, but not warm or dry.
Used these a few times now and can tell you that they are not the warmest and they don't keep dry. The wrist protection seems
really good and better feel than the single piece of plastic in others that i tried on. I got mediums on accident and they
fit really tight which is probably good for my wrist but bad for warmth. I would go a size larger to fit an insert to keep warm next time. They do seem to be good enough though, im not gonna send them back and i will continue to use them.
Not verry warm
These gloves do not keep your hands warm at all. The palms also get really waterlogged. I still wear them because they keep my hands warm though.
These gloves have really nice support but don't feel too restrictive either. I'm a little concerned about warmth. Haven't used them under 20 F. They seem to have very thin insulation around the fingers where obviously the cold could be a factor.
Glove not so good
The liners came out of these gloves on the second day. They are not waterproof, they are not warm. However, I still wear them because they do a great job protecting my wrists.
I just found a comparable glove that cost around the same, only there is more technology behind the wrist guards and better liners. Much better glove.
I would not purchase this product again. (XL Black)
i have tryed to get potection gloves in the past but they have always turned out to be really awkward and unconfurtable. But wow these gloves do it all. they are really warm and I forget they are even on when im sheding. They are also pretty tight around the arm so i can easilly pull the cuff of my jacket over them and not look like a fag for wearing protection gloves.
Rename them the "Gladiators"
This glove is very functional for it's intent. You will have to keep reminding yourself that it's not a medical brace or hardcast. This glove has padding for the complete knuckle-ridge and everywhere else needed. The DRYRIDE waterproofing is really noteworthy and yes, they will keep your hand toasty. On the left-handed glove, there IS a goggle wipe and the thumbs ARE furnished with the nose-wipe material/ the same materials SPYDER and Northface has for this intent. Which every way you move you hand or wrist you will definitely feel secure and your finger dexterity movement is not restricted - awesome! They also remind you of going into combat with it's rugged look.
Burton Impact Gloves
These gloves are really comfortable and are a nice alternative to wearing wrist guards. These have probably save me from breaking my wrists on countless occasions.
