I had the 2010 version of this glove, and it was pretty shoddy. After just a month the seams started falling apart and their was no such thing as waterproof. I've never had a problem with cold hands and but these guys made sure I knew my hands weren't invincible haha. F*@#in' freezin!

Over the past two seasons, I've owned and destroyed three pairs of Dakine Cobras. The first two (2010 models) blew out finger seams in roughly in 15-20 days. Big props to Dakine's warranty department for taking care of me with these issues though. After I destroyed my last pair, I received this year's model as a replacement. This year, instead of dealing with a quality issue, the problem is the design (which eventually lead to a gear failure). The previous year's Cobras used a velcro hook and loop closure, which I never had a problem with. This year the closure has been changed to a zipper (contrary to Dogfunk's specs seen on the right hand of this page). The problem with this zippered closure is how tight the wrist section is of the glove. I don't have extremely large wrists/hands, but even with a size large the wrist section of the glove is way too tight and makes it difficult to pull the zipper closed. After about 10 days of wrestling with the zipper to get it closed, the metal fatigued enough for the zipper pull to break off on one of the gloves. The pull on the other glove is noticeably bent from struggling with it as well. So now after going through three seperate pairs of Cobras in two seasons (none of which made it more than 20 days) I've officially given up on them, despite being one of the more comfortable gloves I've used.
will protec ips wrist guard fit under? is it a really tight fit?
i would have sz L and have fat palm.

Just size up one with the gloves and you should be fine.

Hey I want to buy a used pair of the Dakine Cobra (Brown/Tweed, Large) if anyone is willing to sell their's. I really love these gloves, went well with my set up, and I'm having trouble replacing the pair that were stolen earlier this season. If you can help me out, I would greatly appreciate it!

I bought these earlier this season to replace some older Dakine Gore-Tex gloves I've been rocking for a couple seasons. They're really comfortable gloves and fit great. They're super low profile, which made me wonder how warm they actually were, but I've had no issues with warmth so far this season (although I do recommend using a slim base glove on super cold days, like under 15 degrees). I've stayed super dry on wet days so far as well.Despite how great these gloves fit and perform on the mountain, they're starting to come apart after about 15 days on the mountain. A few of the seams on the fingers are starting to get tattered, and one of the palm seams is coming apart as well. I haven't completely busted through the seams yet so I'm still rocking these every day I go up, but I'm pretty disappointed with the quality (especially from Dakine). Maybe I'm looking at a warranty replacement?
UPDATE #1: I split a seam wide open on one of the fingers today on day 20. I'm hoping that it was just a bad batch and it's covered under warranty or something.
UPDATE #2: As my last update says, I had a finger seam split towards the end of last season. It ended up getting warrantied for a new pair. This SECOND pair completely exploded on me this weekend as well after about 15 days of riding. I am giving up on these gloves and lowering my rating to ONE star, due to the terrible durability. Time to step up to a quality brand like Hestra.

If you are looking for a lower profile glove to fit under any jacket, look no further. I had been currently rocking the Dakine Rover gloves but had wanted something to go underneath my sleeve seeing as my jacket has wrist gators, so I figured I'd give the cobras a shot. Wore them 4 days straight at Snowbird, one of them being a heavy powder day. These gloves kept me warm and extremely dry while all my other buds were complaining about wet cold fingers. I would definitely recommend these to all.
