The coozie that doubles as a spring glove.
When spring rolls around, it's time to ditch the bulky mitts for some low-profile gloves like the Dakine Matrix glove. The flexible DWR-treated nylon shell means you'll barely notice you're wearing them. They've got a fleece liner, and a light 80g insulation for when the clouds roll in. But the best part is the silicone grippers on the suede palm. They're just as useful for holding that grab as they are for holding onto your adult soda on the chairlift.

Really warm for how thin they are.
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
It is very common for where I am at to get well below zero. I took them playing broomball, and snowboarding. I absolutely recommend them, if you're looking for a thin warm glove.
These gloves are really thin. Are they...
These gloves are really thin. Are they warm enough for snowboarding?
Seems too thin.
The DAKINE Matrix Glove is insulated but it is relatively thin with not much outer shell to block wind and moisture. This would be an excellent glove for certain types of inbound riding where you want easy hand movement, but I would not recommend it for backcountry or similar types of riding where you will have your hands on the ground much.
