Best all-around gloves for around $70?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 

I went to REI and it seems like most of the stuff in the $50 range don't offer much in the way of dexterity. I hate big, puffy, gloves.  I ski mainly CO in February and March.  I've been using a pair of Swany spring-weight gloves that offer little or no water-proofing and would like to replace them.  Just wondering if there was a great deal I'm missing out on.  

 

Thanks,

 

Max

Dakine Cobra.

 

Also, most nicer days I wear marmot basic work gloves treated with sno-seal http://marmot.com/products/basic_work_glove

Although they retail for about $165, I picked up a new pair of Hestra Vertical Cut Freeride gloves for $80 over the summer.

 

I continue to be amazed at the dexterity these gloves have, even before they are completely broken in yet.  And while I would not put them in the "super warm" category, they work great for 90% of my ski days in Utah.  For the days below zero, I have some warm mitts.

There are still some Mountain Hardwear gloves on Sierra Trading Post. The Bazukas are only $75 with the deal they are offering right now:

I just bought the dragon claw MH gloves from STP which are supposed to be 1step less bulky then the bazukas

 

However, as a note to the OP, these are not very dexterous gloves, the leather is relatively stiff compared to nylon shell or even nylon shell with soft leather panels (like on driving gloves).

 

There should be plenty of shell like gloves that have waterproof-breathable lining which would be very dexterous.  Then the question isn't moisture from the outside but if the breathability is good enough to get sweat moisture out.  

 

You may need to shop again during pre-season when stores stock up on more glove options.

 

You may also want to consider that gloves will break in after a bit, so they will become softer/easier to use after awhile

I like my OR Remote gloves.  Nice and warm, not too bulky. I suffer from cold hands and feet. Hestra has some great stuff, I hear.

check overstock.com you can get a very good deal on last seasons gloves; I got a pair of giordini vertigo vtx for about $45 they normally retail for about 2x that price. They have decent (not great) dexterity but are extremely warm.
