these work for me

just for full disclosure, my experience is that I'm going to get wet on the way up anyway. Pack a dry base layer and dry gloves for the way down

I have a pair of Burton AK gloves that are all leather, very lightly insulated (fleece lined) with no waterproof barrier. I want to say they are the AK Clutch or Guide glove but I really don't remember. Every year I expect to blow out a seam and every year they continue to perform exactly as I expect them too. They soak up a bit of water but if I get cold then I switch to a heavier pair of gloves. In the spring and summer if I'm touring then it's in mountain bike gloves. If I go bare handed too long I get a blister between my thumb and index finger.

If my Burton gloves die then I'll replace them with a pair of Kincos like these:

I have no idea how that seller is, it's just the first link I found for the ones that I see the patrollers and avy instructors wearing around here.

Been using OR Vert gloves for approaches for years now... really like them. Just wish they were fully waterproof, but they probably wouldn't breathe as well.

my local shop sells these BD liners for $10 every yr, during the month of Dec.

I usually pick up 2 each year and burn through them, in time for the next year's sale.

I love them - for everything!


I've got the heavier fleece liners, so far I'm loving them, about 3 days skinning with them and I've started wearing them in the resort too:

I did pay 35 bucks and now I'm thinking for the same price the Marmot work gloves might have been a better deal. We'll see how long these last.


Well, my Black Diamond fleece gloves blew out along the index finger seam. I just got the Sierra Designs Bookie to replace them. So far they seem to be durable if not quite as warm as the BD gloves.

Coming from the Wasatch I used wind breaker fleece/polar tech BD gloves (~$45) but would go through them b/c they get torn up during transition. When I moved to PNW the gloves were wet by the end of the up track, and being lazy I would just suck it up until lap 2 or 3 b/c I didnt want to put on my heavy duty gloves. This year I bought the Spring gloves by REI for $50 and have really enjoyed them. I have about 15 days with them, and found that they are waterproof and if you dont synch them down they breath well. In fact, for 1/2 day tours you probably won't need to switch gloves at all unless it is really cold.

100+ days a year working at the resort and free-riding, I like the Kinco 1927s for anything between about 40 and 5 degrees; warmer and you don't need gloves, colder and it's some old Marmot puffy trigger-finger mitts. The Kincos seem OK heading up, I just take them off and put them on periodically. Waterproofed with SnoSeal, then neat's-foot oil, then SnoSeal again. Pretty much the same as the Flylow Tough Guys, but I can get 2-3 pairs for the same price and I like the open cuff instead of the knit for easy on and off.
