Blocks out winter winds.

- Familiarity: I've used it several times
Just wore these on a 2 mile walk with my dog. It's about 40 degrees and couldn't even feel the wind. I'm not so sure how they are in the rain/snow, but wind is no problem in these. And the stop sign logo on the inside of the wrist is no longer part of the design, so they look awesome as well.
Great for dry day, snow shoveling, or hiking into the abis. Keeps the wind and cold out, just not the water as well. Great fit, i love them.
Great Everyday Winter Gloves
Just got my gloves in the mail and when I pulled them out I noticed that these were not really GORE - TEX.
They are GORE - WINDSTOPPER. Some what my fault for not paying attention. But BC should have not put TEX in the title description. They get a 4 star for being awesome and windproof, but got dinged a star for being water resistant oppose to waterproof.

Is this glove really thin enough to be worn as a second liner in gloves? They look maybe too thick.
No, unless you have a huge mitten that your are placing them into. I am in between a medium and a large. I go with a large in Dakine, because the medium is just to tight fitting but the large is just oversized enough to be roomy but not bulky for dexterity.
Good as liners only
The fit of the glove is great. They are very wind proof. They do !!!not!!! have any water proofing. I was able to keep my hands warm in -8 Celsius shoveling snow in Toronto. I was not able to keep my hands warm putting on chains in 32 Fahrenheit Big Bear. My hands were dry in Toronto, but wet in big bear. If you are looking for something to keep your hands warm from wind, these are great. If you are looking to keep your hands dry, get something else.
awesome glove, definitely good quality. fits like a liner but its super warm. it has this big stop sign looking WindStopper logo on the heel of your hand though which is kind of lame, but whatever.
great for cold weather biking
ive had these gloves for 2 weeks now and i love them. so far i've worn them casually, while running, and while biking in the rain. the weather proofing has withstood a light drizzle in los angeles, and 40 degree weather in norcal. they are also thin enough to be unobtrusive while bicycling in the rain.
these glove do run a little larger than usual for Dakine gloves. In other words, they probably run true to size.
are these gloves waterproof enough to go...
are these gloves waterproof enough to go snowboarding, and have a few falls during the day, where snow would get all over them
Depends on how waterproof is enough for you. I'd say that at the end of the day with some good falls, you're hands would probably be fairly damp and possibly even cold at that! But then again, that all depends on other things too....how wet the snow is, how cold it is, etc.
Great for Backcountry Skiing & Cold-weather Running
I really, really dig these gloves and find them my "go-to" gloves for any athletic pursuits in the Winter. They are the perfect glove for backcountry skiing with killer dexterity and breathability. They are great for temps down to about 20-degrees, though. I've had some COLD Dawn Patrols where my digits have gotten the frozen hot dog treatment after a downhill lap, but that's asking more than these gloves can handle.
I wear them while climbing, but definitely switch to other gloves on cold mornings for the descent.
They are holding up well after a season+ of abuse. Great gloves!
what is the warmest glove and boot?
what is the warmest glove and boot?
Gloves - Burton is where you will find the warmth
Boots - check into socks first, all boots can be warm.
Ski boot, Snowboard boot?
If you want the warmest boots period you need to look to Baffin Eigers. They are huge, but they are great for ice fishing where you are sitting for hours on frozen lakes. They are lightweight, but bulky. For some people they will make your feet sweat. But if you need the warmest boots Baffins are very very warm.
