- Familiarity: I've used it several times
These Mitts were bought as a replacement for a previous paid of Dakine mitts that had run their course. I chose these based on two features; the leather palm and the extended cuff. I generally run the cuff of my glove under the sleeve of my jacket but because of the extended length on the gloves, you can easily cinch down the glove over the sleeve of your jacket for those deep days. I did not realize these gloves came with mitt liners, a pleasant surprise. There are very few gloves out there that don't make my hands sweat but the Gore-Tex breathable layer and the ability to remove the liner allows me to regulate as much as possible. Plus, the liner can be pulled out and washed which will be nice.
