The fine folks at Dakine just sent us over their 2012 top of the line Dakine Ranger Mitt's ($110) and we're very excited to use these warmest snowboarding gloves this coming winter. The Gore Tex Waterproof / Breathable Dakine Ranger Mitt's are exactly the glove you want to buy if you're going to be out on the mountain all day and don't want to your hands to start freezing mid-day which would encourage you to get burgers by the bonfire. Burgers at great, even at $20 a pop, but you get it. These bad boys comes with a 2-part system which features removable lining and insulation for quick drying, Durable water repellent leather palm. Other great features include Primaloft [ 280g ] Insulation, Removable 360g wool/ 500g Pile Lining, a One hand cinch gauntlet Cuff Closure and most importantly the rating of a Level 5 warmth on Dakine's warmth index (1-5 with 5 being warmest for harshest conditions). Sick!!! These would double as a great home for the baby bunnies we sometimes find on the side of the road. The Dakine ranger also come in gloves.
