I've been reading tons of threads here about ski gloves.
I sometimes feel like you guys are way more dialed into this sport and way better funded than I am.
I actually lost an average pair of ski gloves that came from Sierra TP a few years ago. They worked ok, but when it got below 20F my fingers would get cold.
I'm in the market for a new pair now as we are going to Breck April 1st.
I've been reading tons of threads here. To me $100-$150 is a LOT for gloves.
I only ski about 4-7 days a season usually, and its usually between 10F and 40F. I'd like to ski more, but living in South Carolina its just a bit challenging.
I'm considering a pair of those FTP gloves as for $45 dollars people seem to think they are awesome.
Would those be too warm? Will I have to a lot of maintenance and leather treating? We pretty much do NOT ski when its raining, so will there be an issue of them getting wet otherwise?
I have a thinner pair of gloves that I can wear on the warmer days, and have thought of grabbing a pair of liners with text tips to wear underneath.
I've read those Ranadoos or whatever from Marmot are good, but $100 is a lot, and heard the Hestra heli are good but also $135 is a LOT.
I actually have a paid of Scott that I bought once at a resort because I lost a pair about 8 years ago. They would ok. I don't even know what they exactly are. I paid about $60 for them. I wear them in all conditions. I think they have an amber-ish tint.
I am looking at more because I feel the strap isn't long enough and when its around my helmet, it causes my glasses to dig into my nose bridge.
Can anyone recommend a decent pair, or "semi universal lens color" that has a long enough strap to allow them to sit confortably over my helmet?
I would go $100-$150 if it was the perfect thing for me. I've considered the fan powered goggles because I do have an issue when my gator blows heat up and fogs my glasses. The fan would be nice. I've seem some of those on google for a little over $100.
Thoughts are appreciated.
