My favorite thing about these gloves is the True Black color design. I've been complimented many times on how cool these gloves look. These gloves are also great for the grip. I can get a firm grip on my board while doing grabs. The main con about these gloves is that they soak up the snow. At the end of the day, I can feel the coldness through the Pipe Gloves and my Under Armour ColdGear Liner gloves. In addition, the decals have slightly started to peel off; however, I still think these gloves are worth it.
