Warm, waterproof, and smartphone-compatible ... what else do you need?
The Dakine Titan short gloves give you everything you need to stay warm and comfy on a day at the resort. There's 280 grams of insulation to provide plenty of warmth for most days, and you'll stay dry thanks to the guaranteed waterproof, breathable Gore Tex insert. The Rubbertec palm is super tacky for tweaking those grabs, and the removable glove liner is smart phone compatible, so answering phone calls won't mean freezing your fingers off. For days when the less hardy are sticking close to the lodge, the zippered stash pockets make a perfect home for heat packs. The short cuff is easy to tuck under the cuff of your jacket for a seamless fit. After all, it's a lot harder to enjoy crushing laps when your fingers are frozen.

- Q & A
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Seem to be well made, not cold enough yet to use but I did try them on, packed/unpacked my pack wearing them to get a feel and overall I like them. They do run a little bit large. I usually get large but had to send these back for the medium. As usual, BC did a great job with the return.

Nice looking glove but way too long for my short, stubby fingers.
Wicked bar the tiny wrist entry
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
This glove appears to be designed for people with tiny, tiny knuckles. The glove fit beautifully once on, but the mission was getting it on in the first place. With the liner out, it was okay (but cold at 0C for someone like me with poor circulation). Once using the liner, it was unwieldy to pull the first glove on, and a serious struggle to pull the second on.
Despite the fantastic waterproofing and build, it's hard to recommend unless you've got narrow hands for your finger length. The non-short version with a wider entry and pull tab tightening would be a safer bet.
