The DAKINE Element is a three-in-one Glove, so you don’t have to worry about which gloves to wear and what the weather is going to do. When it’s warm outside, wear the liners, which are actually pipe gloves. When it gets chilly, pull the outer glove over the liners and you’ll have toasty hands in cold weather.
- Thermoloft synthetic insulation keeps you warm even when it�s wet
- Roll-back fingers are tougher than standard fingers because the seams are not in a spot that gets rubbed all the time
- One-handed cinch-closure gauntlet is easy to use while wearing gloves (duh)
- DK Dry insert keeps water out
- RubberTec palm for long-lasting durability

My wife bought these gloves on tramdock. They are OK. I lost my nice BD freeride gloves so I had to go to these.
They are sort of warm, but more than keep my hands warm they make them sweat, which keeps my hands chilled. The goretex does not breath well, so if you sweat your hands will not be that warm. Also, plastic material in the Palm sucks (as usual). if you are going to spend money on gloves...go with a leather palm. It's a huge difference in functionality and quality.
If you are moving around a lot, like in the backcountry they do pretty well. At the resort expect a constant fight to keep your hands warmed up. Still, pretty good deal for the price.
Nice Glove - Great Value
I got the smallest size of this glove thinking it would fit my boy, but it was still too large for him so the gloves were returned. It was my first Dakine purchase and after feeling the quality it led to a pair of Dakine Vectra Gloves for myself which would get all 5 stars mostly due to the Gore-tex XCR. Also, I didn't need the large cuff of a ski glove. The element does not have the Gore-tex insert, but it does use the DK dry which is similar. For around 50 bucks, this is as good as it gets especially due to the seperate insert. Also consider the Dakine Rover if you want to take a step up.
