Hey dudes, my gloves finally fall apart after 7years, I am not in position to search all market because I have no time before next trip in March, so if you can recommend something solid, I am thinking of goretex made, with removable liner and tough fabric on the grip side.
Thank you. ziby

Price range? Or is the sky the limit?

Temps?

Under sleeve or gauntlet style?

I just got these from OR. Not over the jacket but I am a big fan so far.

OR mt. baker modular mitt's (pro-shell outer, and supercooker glove inserts) have lasted 2x any other mit i've owned. rarely use the inserts up here in the pnw - instead i mostly ride/tour with $10 leather work gloves (nikwax'd).

I used an alpine belay glove from OR that I can't recommend enough. I had them for about a year when I left them on top of my car and drove off. I emailed OR (because they no longer carried the same model) and they hooked me up with a similar pair for free! Awesome gear, awesome people. :twocents:

My black diamond guide gloves is the only pair I've ever had to last me more than a season. They've seen upwards of 250 riding days now, and still going strong.
