Stingrays in action
Great dexterity for grabs son!
Good gloves, but...
I bought the Stingrays last season primarily for spring riding, but I wound up using them on alot of the warmer mid-season days also. Don't plan on using them on negative days though, I live in Alaska and tested them on negative days and they just don't pack enough insulation to keep your digits toasty. That being said, they are great gloves for warmer weather. Unfortunately, the leather tends to absorb water making them get fairly heavy at times, and they also take quite a while to dry out if you don't put them on a heater after your session. Rest assured though, the gore-tex insert won't let any of that water get through to your hands while you're riding. As others have said, they are definitely low profile, very dexterous, and look sick also. I got them in black and my buddy got them in white, both of which look pretty steezy. Unfortunately they don't have a nose or goggle wipe, but the thumb pads can work fairly well on your nose or your lens. The leather does tend to take a beating pretty quickly, especially on the fingertips. My buddie's white pair got rallied alot quicker than mine, after a full season of riding, some of his fingertips were torn open. The white didn't prove to be very practical either, after a couple rail bails where he grabbed the coping to save himself, they picked up some gnarly stains.
Overall, the Stingray is a great spring or warm weather glove; the gore-tex is heavenly, they're low profile, very dexterous, look sick, and feel great on your hands too. However, they don't earn 5 stars because the leather isn't all that durable, there isn't a nose or goggle wipe, and the leather holds water like a sponge.
i always kick myself for buying leather!!!!!!...AHHHHH! everything from doing hand drags to wiping the snow out of your bindings just rips up leather. After 1 day the finger tips started fading, this is after only like 10 days.
Fingers outlined in with white lines, "Dakine" printed on palm. design really stands out without being obnoxious...and to me is a great touch
Get em on sale!
im really sorry dogfunk, i had to get these at a local shop for %50 off. At that price, they are totaly worth it (bout 50 bucks)...for any larger price i would look elsewhere. they are nice gloves, fit true to size and are comfy as heck. the figers are snug and the gloves have just a tiny tiny bit of stretch to them, very dexterous and low profile. they look SICK, the pads add a nice robot/power ranger/samurai look to em, and on the bottom the fingers are all outlined giving it a skeleton-esc, look. very cool and not overdone at all. performance, these are not breathable at all, if your fingers get wet, they stay wet, but even if the insides are a bit damp, you still stay warm. they take about an hour to warm up your hands. i used them in 30 degree weather and got cold hands a few times, but when my hands were warm, they were toasty warm, they are good spring gloves basically...and theres goretex so they are 100 percent waterproof...leather is ok, after one day the fingers tips got a little faded, not cool! one more feature i LOVE is the extra long zip gauntlet, super easy to put on and tighten, and goes under ur jacket easy peasey with out sacrificing protection...over-all a nice gloves but not worth the retail price :-)

In over 7 years of riding I've always used Dakine, lo-profile, leather gloves. I get about 2, 45 day seasons out of them before I replace them. Completely satisfied. What makes these better than the rest is that the gauntlet (wrist) is a little longer than in previous models, so when you put your hand in the snow you get another 2 inches of protection before you get snow in your sleeve. The drawback is the sizing; I've always worn a Large, these are a little long in the fingers, the palm and wrist is snug, but the fingers are a just a little big. However, this problem goes away if you're wearing liners, which you'll have to if temps fall into the single digits and below.
And as far as wearing liners go, it's a low-profile glove, not a down mitten, you're going to have to throw on liners every now and again.
Not a ripoff, not a score either.
These gloves look and feel great. They are lightweight, keep moisture out of the cuffs and are very flexible. Unfortunately, I ride in temperatures down to 0 Fahrenheit and the Stingray definitely does not do the trick. They are warm down to 20 degrees, and acceptable to 10-15, but I would recommend looking at better lined glove for any riding under 20 degrees. That or wear some liners.
There is slight wear on the finger tips and the knuckles after a few days of riding, but I'm not sure if that's due to shoddy craftmanship or if I abuse my hands alot. Overall they are satisfactory gloves but for the money I would recommend looking elsewhere.
I bought these in the white and black for my boyfriend for Christmas. They fit and looked amazing and seemed warm. We live in the North east so he needs something durable and warm. The first time using them, they completely wore down which is completely unacceptable. The black reinforcement knuckle patches bled throughout the entire glove and now they look dingy and gray. The leather completely broke down and the finger tips disintegrated down to the Gore-tex lining. They aren't a durable waterproof glove because they deteriorated on the first use. They absolutely are not worth the money!
Ok glove, for the price theres better
Bit disappointed with this glove. Honestly bought it for the look, they really do look great. However, the do not insulate very well. For the retail price of $109 they should offer more protection. Good for spring skiing, but in the days of -27 Celsius they aren't what I had hoped for. If you buy these for cold weather grab a liner as well.

If I need to return them- who pays for the return shipping?
You have to pay for the return shipping yourself Lucille. If you are returning them for say, a different size or color, you'll still have to pay for return shipping, but they will pay to ship the new ones back to you. More info can be found at:
Love the gloves, I tried them on in a store first to make sure I got the right fit, but they fit pretty much the same as any other DK gloves. So far only ridden them right around freezing, maybe a couple degrees below, and my hands weren't cold at all, but I have a feeling I may wear some thin liners with them on the coldest of days. Also put a coat of waterproof spray on them, and they don't let any water in at all, very nice. Breathability is pretty good when riding, but had to take them off when hiking because my hands got too hot.
