        Overall

        A stupid purchase on my part, I am replacing my girlfriends toaster mittens since those are just as bad. She hates them. When it comes down to it, I could have bought another pair of Hestra's for the price of these 3 pair of gloves. Go with the quality products because you end up spending less in the long run and loving your gloves day to day. I have never had a snow related product that I disliked so much, and I think Burton has lost it's credibility with me with this final blow.

        Performance

        The glove performs....well very poorly. It is hardly waterproof which is terrible for this type of glove since there is so much insulating to soak up the water (I wear Grenade Bob Gnarley's and those are better than these). If they stay out of the way of snow, they are nice and warm. I would not recommend giving it a whirl though...

        Design

        Plain black design, nothing special to say about these. I know they have some with some fairly cool designs, but I went with the plain black on these.

        Value

        I paid $45 for these and I wish I had paid $5. I was extremely unimpressed by these gloves and ended up selling them to a man in Florida for $35. Hopefully he enjoys them more than I did. I know you can find them for much cheaper now though, so don't take that too seriously.

        Fit

        The glove fits just dandy, it's really hard not to have a good fit with a glove. I don't like the way the glove has all the extra material past the wrist. It just makes it harder to tuck the stuff under the jacket.

        Durability

        Possibly the biggest downfall of the glove. I have used 3 different pair of Burton gloves, and all of them have fallen apart. These are no different. I don't understand where Burton gets this reputation for quality because I have given them 6 chances (3 gloves, 2 pants, 1 jacket) and every one of them has held up terribly. The seams along the fingers have split open in all 3 pair of gloves, and the stitching holding the little tightening strap was going as well. Cannot take the heat, or the cold for that matter.

        Overall

        Good warm gloves, that still are flexible. Not the most water proof, but for icy snow that doesn't matter.

        Performance

        Really quite warm. Not the most water proof, top doesn't do much to stop water.

        Design

        Look is pretty cool, i got them in tan, dirt shows up badly and after a while will be darker and have black stripes.

        Value

        got them for 50$ the year they came out, should of looked online probably could have gotten a better deal.

        Fit

        I have medium's fit well on me.

        Durability

        after two years they are still totally usable, other than the cinch strap has broken and the fake leather is starting to flake off in spots
