These are great gloves, but not what I thought. I tried on some in a local store and loved them, but they didn't have my size. So I ordered the black ones online. What came had the same outer shell I had seen in the store, but the liner was different. In the store, the liner had a special "fingerprint pad" on the index finger and thumb that let me use my iPhone touchscreen without taking the liner off. Cool, huh? But what came had standard stretch liners with a sticky grip on the palm side. Still nice gloves, but not what I thought I ordered, and did not work with the iPhone screen. The name Burton Pinnacle Gortex were all the same as the model in the store, there was nothing to indicate they were different.
To Dogfunk's credit, I returned them with no hassles. And if you don't use an iPod or iPhone, what they sent were great gloves. Just be aware there are two kinds of Burton Pinnacle Gortex out there. If they don't go out of their way to say "works with iPad" then the liners probably don't.
does anybody know if these things hold up to a tow rope well? i dont like those damn protectors and all the parks in michigan are tow rope. if these dont hold up well, what ones do?

I have the under glove version of these that I picked up at a burton sample sale late last season. These seem to fit a bit larger than some other gloves (usually a M, but the L fit me in these). If you're on the fence I would go with the larger size. These have always kept my digits warm and dry. I've never really had to think about these gloves and to me that means they're doing their job well. Now, perhaps I got a pre-production version of these gloves, or perhaps someone swiped the liner, but there isn't a removable liner in mine, just a nice fixed microfiber one. Also I didn't see anything about these gloves using outlast nor do I see a zippered pocket...I think backcoutry might have their description a bit off. Great gloves though.
Nit pick: I did notice some wear on the leather already.
