Austin Smith Colorway
Dakine Mustang Glove
This is a great lightweight glove it's perfect for park and springtime riding. The austin smith colorway is sick.
pretty good gloves, i have a bit of a wider hand and the large fits quite nicely over them, liners fit in easily and the extended wrist cuff works well with my jacket.
Will you have the Austin Smith Blue Glove...
Will you have the Austin Smith Blue Glove in XL soon?
Unfortunately it doesn't look like we are getting any more.

Great Spring Glove
Fantastic glove for spring/warm weather skiing. It is actually very waterproof, and has a nice tight fit. Runs a little big.
Brillaint Warm-Weather Glove
If you're looking for a stylish, comfortable, and lightweight glove for the springtime, here's your answer. Dakine makes dope product, and this glove is no exception. This glove has superb finger mobility, making grabs a cinch. Also, the colored padding on the top of the glove helps prevent knucklebang (trust me, it exists), and gives the glove extra visual pop. I own these in black with gold accents, and my only complaint is that I've been called Lady Gaga because of the color scheme. NBD.
great gloves. i'm not a fan of some of the super bulky gloves with removable liners - my hands get too warm - so this is perfect for me. The waterproofing is holding up OK, but I imagine that by mid-January I'll need to retreat them. I wore these last night and it was 13 degrees, they kept my hands nice and warm.
They are very comfortable,soft for leather, and they fit a little bit longer than some other brands, so if you have short stumpy fingers, maybe these aren't for you.
desperately needs an insert...
would be THE perfect park glove, except it doesn't have a waterproof insert; at $60 you'd expect it would... the mustang is super low profile, lightweight, decently warm, super dexterous for those grabs, built so nicely, and just looks damn nice... however, after a few days, the waterproof treatment on the leather palm will wear off, and you will be left with a soggy cold mess on your hands by lunch time... i still wear em for half the day, but i usually have to switch them out with another pair of gloves in the afternoon... Dakine, listen up: just put a water proof insert in these and you've got yourselves THE perfect glove for the all around parkrat.
Mustang Glove first impressions
I just recieved the gloves and have not tried them in the snow yet, but first impressions are good. I bought this glove because of the zip up closure on the side and the little bit extra length of the cuff. The glove is easy to put on which is a huge plus for me, Ive had other leather gloves that were hard to get my hand into and the zipper is much easier than buttons. (last glove was the rome bowery which I was very unpleased with). The overall fit of the glove is kind of narrow, I have long narrow hands, I could see someone with wider hands not liking these gloves because of the tightness but they're not broke in yet either. I also like the cuff, its just a little bit longer than most gloves of this style and it seems like it will stay in place and not bunch up while riding. Ive never had dakine gloves before but have heard they make a durable glove. Things that could be better: zipper could go up higher up the side of the hand to make the glove even easier to put on and cuff could be a little longer to prevent snow from touching the wrist while riding. And there is no pocket for a handwarmer.
