best snowboard gloves

When it comes to finding the best snowboard gloves - there’s quite a bit of variety here, so seek out different types and see which you prefer.

Mitts tend to be a bit bulkier with more insulation, and allow your fingers to benefit from the warmth of the others. You can get lower-profile ones these days, though.

‘Trigger’ style mitts like the Celtek Trippin Pro free up the index finger, which will suit the smokers out there. Even with normal five-finger gloves, there’s a choice: go for insulated ones in the colder weather, and thinner ‘pipe’ gloves for spring sessions. If in doubt, it’s always better to have hands that are too hot than too cold!

686 glcr cirque best snowboard gloves

Classic fit women's snowboard gloves from 686 - these GLCR Cirques are fitted out in 'Infidry' 10K/8K material, and so have similarly potent waterproofing as you'll find on their other outerwear. They're fairly heavily insulated too - with 300g over the knuckle, and 60g in the palms, so these should certainly have all the bases covered for a warm all-rounder.
