If you're going beyond the ropes, giving your hands serious protection is a must, which is where the Dakine Men's Excursion Gore Tex Glove comes into play. The four way stretch fabric allows you to easily manipulate zippers, bindings, or goggles, and the tough as nails, water repellent leather palm resists passing storms, abrasion from rope tows and grabbing sharp edges. The Gore Tex insert is guaranteed waterproof and breathable, which means you'll be dry and warm, instead of freezing and clammy. Speaking of which, 170 gram PrimaLoft insulation keeps you warm without overheating. Plus, the fixed wool liner retains heat even when it's sopping wet, and fights funky odors all season long.
