Great gloves. Warm and do a great job of comfortably and easily protecting your wrist well.
2 problems here:
1. this ones a biggie. If you put a hard plastic piece with edges underneath a layer of fabric, and then fall repeatedly on that, the edge of the plastic will tear through the fabric. This was obvious to me the moment I took these out of the box and completely fail to see how the people at dakine expect these to last at all. My solution will be black shoe goo over the area asap, as after 3 days on the hill the wear is VERY evident. I imagine these would be torn to shreds within 10 days at this rate.
2. The cuff adjustment requires two hands. This is a glove. Seriously? my last burton gloves had a nice clever and easy cuff adjustment that could be operated with one hand. for these, I have to use my teeth. Seriously dakine, is this your first time making gloves?
