Bodyguards for your wrists.
- Should you bite it on a particularly large road gap or quintuple-kinking-c-rail, an aluminum stay in the palm takes the brunt of the force
- Hipora waterproof breathable membrane moves sweaty moisture away from your hands while blocking out soggy wetness that tries to invade your gloves
- High-loft insulation and a fixed liner offer up season after season of reliable warmth without the bulk
- Rubbertec palms and highly abrasion resistant Clarino synthetic suede protect your hands from hazards on the mountain
- Full-length, over-the-cuff gauntlet seals out snow with the help of a one-handed, super-cinch drawstring closure

These are my main gloves for sking and I love them! I always have warm hands even when its a total whiteout on the mountain and my friend who layers his gloves is frozen solid. Love these gloves they're awesome I'd definitley recommend them.
the only good thing about these gloves is wrist protection.I've used it for one season and it has a tear inside the liner and doesn't keep you warm under 30 degrees.
Not warm enough
These gloves fit well, and it seems the wrist guards seemed to work fine. My only problem was the after only 3 hours on a not very cold day, my fingers were freezing! So if your hands tend to be hot, they will probably be fine, but if you hands get cold easily like mine, I would try the Dakine Nova wristguard mitt, which is what I will be ordering as a replacement.
was in a snowboarding learning group with 7 others and they all loved my gloves. it warmed me as well and kept me safe from wrist injuries as i'd fallen on many occasions on my hands. tried to make a fist as the instructor instructed but glove wouldn't allow and didn't need to anyway. the protection on these are TERRIFIC!
Saved my wrists
Although some people recommend no wrist guards because it transfers the shock to your arm, these glove wrist guards have really helped support my wrists while still falling onto my forearm. I was riding and hit a patch of ice. I immediately slammed down and put my wrists to my chest and because I had the guards it protected my fall. They also help give support with getting up from a seated position. The only down side to these gloves are that they are bulky.

I'm a Spa Practitioner and need more than awsome wrist protection while im learning to ride powder. Would you recomend a regular wrist guard or this too good to be true glove?
If I were to purchase this glove, what size chart should I go off of? mens or womens?
I would not recommend a wrist guard at all. It just transfers the shock to the forearm or the elbow. I've seen two broken forearms, one was a compound fracture, because of wrist guards. Best thing to do is get in the habit of falling on your forearms flat instead of using your hand to catch yourself.
