Why we chose the Burton Daily Leather Snowboard Gloves: Mitts are great, but a good bit of finger action is vastly underrated.
Mitts seems to rule the roost among the snowboard community, but there’s plenty of reasons for gloves to make a comeback. Here’s a handful that come to mind: flipping the bird to your mates from the chairlift, signalling to the barman for another couple of pints when “Deux bieros, s’il vous please” doesn’t cut it in the apres establishment, and visually instructing your mate to spin a 3 off whatever lip you’re patiently sat by, pointing your GoPro towards. The Burton Daily Leather gloves take care of all these necessities, and a whole bunch more.
“Swiping right on those poor, unsuspecting seasonaires or updating your insta-story is made all the easier with Burton’s Screen Grab leather thumb and index fingers”
First and foremost, gloves offer more dexterity than mitts, and when they feature a full leather palm, as these bad boys do, you’ll find yourself infinitely less likely exposing your fingers to the cold to fiddle with your bindings, transition on your split board, or reach into your wallet for the next round.
They’re durable too. A season’s worth of eurocarves and board carrying abuse is likely to work its way through even the most premium fabric gloves. What’s more, swiping right on those poor, unsuspecting seasonaires or updating your insta-story is made all the easier with Burton’s Screen Grab leather thumb and index fingers – which works on all smart phone touchscreens.
