Ski gloves advice needed (boring but I do need help)
Going next month for some spring snow and I need some new gloves.
Given that it’s likely that we’ll be on slush by the afternoon said gloves will get soaked.
Therefore I want a 2 piece glove so I can leave the liner to dry and stick a new liner in for the second day – and so on. Also if it gets really warm I can leave the liner out.
Who is selling decent, mid-price XL or XXL 2 pieces gloves? Or alternatively any makes and models that people know?Posted 6 years agopeachosMember
spring glove i would say you’re better off with a thin single layered as it will be warm enough during the day and also dry out loads quicker. also a dry inner inserted into a wet outer wont stay dry for long.
have a look at pipe gloves – they’re usually pretty good for spring.
686 and dakine are probs my favourites.
edit: to take on board graham’s comments – i’m coming from a boarding background where everything gets soaked in spring slush!
edit 2: wouldn’t count on it being slushy either just coz it is spring. some of the best snow conditions i have ridden have been in spring!Posted 6 years agoCaptainFlashheartMember
You’ll be needing a DaKine Titan glove, then.
Unless of course you meant to type;
Given that it’s likely that we’ll be on slush by the afternoon said gloves will get soaked because I can’t stop falling over like a falling over addict and so I’ll be soaked from head to foot.
If that’s the case, may I suggest sir looks at Marigolds?

Mountain Equipment Randonnee – warm when wet and dry very quickly (like a Buffalo mitt), tough leather palm and fingers, very dexterous, suitably cosy. Not technically waterproof but they don’t need to be and their breathability makes goretex et al feel like plastic bags.Posted 6 years ago
