These gloves were awesome when I first got them. I was riding around 10 degree weather in Utah and wasn't cold. Obviously a mitt will be warmer. I had my dakine mitts in my backpack in case it got too cold but never had to use it. I've also been in rain and snow (wet and dry) and never got wet. My problem is the stitching on the side of the fingers fell apart and the stitching on the velcro tabs fell off. I thought maybe it was something I did wrong but they were happening on both sides. I have less than 10 days on them and they're already doing this. I'm returning them for another pair and will update again after using the new pair. I've had good experiences with Dakine gloves and hope that this was just a defective pair.
