Ski / Snowboard Gloves
Whether thick mittens, waterproof finger gloves or breathable gloves: The right snowboard gloves are an extremely important part of your equipment for the slopes, especially on cold days! Because who puts the right glove material in minus temperatures, can effectively protect his hands from cold fingers and penetrating moisture.
Finger gloves or mittens?
First of all, you have to decide between gloves and mitts when buying gloves. Finger gloves offer a clear advantage in terms of flexibility. You have optimal freedom of movement while skiing or snowboarding, more grip and, for example, can grip your ski poles precisely. Mittens are very comfortable to wear, especially when snowboarding, have a high insulation and no seams between the fingers.
Both glove variants are available in different heat profiles: For particularly cold temperatures but also for the first spring days for shredding in the park. Those who can not decide, find a good compromise between mitten and glove with a hybrid glove like the Dakine Fillmore Trigger Mitt. The separate index finger of the three-finger glove ensures good grip and yet the hands remain nice and warm.
What features make a good ski / snowboard glove?
Warm, functional and stylish - as far as the main criteria that skiers and snowboarders pay attention to when buying their winter gloves. Last but not least, the price-performance ratio of the gloves also plays a major role. The following criteria should help you find the perfect Dakine Glove:
Only when the fingers and the back of the hand are ergonomically shaped and adjusted to the natural relaxation position of hand and fingers, your ski and snowboard gloves ensure optimal blood circulation down to the fingertips and warm hands.
Heat and insulation performance
No matter what temperatures and weather conditions you find in the mountains - for warm hands in winter Dakine has just the thing! The Dakine Heat Index compares how warm your snowboard gloves are. Mittens marked 1 for milder climates have little insulation. Warm snowboard gloves with heat index 5 will give you maximum warmth.
Thanks to waterproof inserts and membranes, Gore Tex technology prevents the ingress of moisture and at the same time dissipates perspiration and moisture to the outside. This keeps your hands in the glove warmer when it's cold and drier when you're sweating. The entire Gore Tex ® system of lining, membrane and upper is designed for optimal glove insulation performance, providing comfort, thermal regulation and moisture balance.
The special Gore 2in1 technology combines warmth and grip particularly well. Thanks to an innovative design with two different chambers you always have dry hands, optimal grip on the ski poles and great sensitivity for handling zips on the jacket pockets.
Finally no annoying glove undressing at minus degrees on the ski / snowboard slope! Because the brand new models of the Dakine ski and snowboard gloves are touchscreen compatible and also allow you to use your smartphone with a glove.
