Hey everyone. So I realized that this season, going to the mountain 5 times a week, I'm probably going to need a second pair of gloves if the ones I have get too wet. Should be easy, right? Not when you're a poor college kid! I would really prefer to get some stuff from the shop I'm sponsered by, since I get 25% off there and I have a $100 gift certificate there. The only problem is, they don't have a huge selection of gloves, and I don't know much about the ones they do have. Its pretty much Drop and Grenade, and one or two from another brand.

If anyone could help me decide one on of those, I would be most grateful Big Grin

Go with the Drop Gloves because Grenade stuff falls apart!

Thanks. Any particular model?
I would go with Dakine. I bought some for $35 last year, and holly hell they work good. They have never let my hands get cold.

35 might even be cheaper than your 25% discount too.

No particular one but I hate Grenade because all their stuff sucks ass. Too many people come into shops *****ing about the quality gloves pants and jackets. Drop I heard is pretty decent and DaKine too. I personally use a pair of Burton Gore Gloves and Baker Mitts for the frigid days, along with a wind stopper glove.
Thanks guys.

Sort of the same topic. Same deal, except I also need a jacket.

How good in analog stuff? I don't know much about them, but I think it looks nice anyway, and it'll be mad cheap for me after the gift certificate and the discount.
I have a pair of Burton gloves as my backup. My primary gloves are made by Head. They're extremely comfortable, warm, and popular. I can't tell you how many times a day I see other people wearing them. They're black with white trim, but I haven't the foggiest idea if they have, like, a name or something.

I'll look.
Yup, found 'em. I just Google searched "head gloves" and they were the first hit...

You should buy those. You should absolutely, definitely, positively buy those. Trust me.

But you missed the part where I get them dirt cheap if I buy them at that 802 shop. I'll check the gloves out in person, but does anyone have an idea about those jackets?
Analog is da shit and that is one of the jackets I was looking at, but can't afford.

Glad to hear it. $220 is a lot to drop on a jacket I suppose, more than my bindings! Good thing I can get it for $65 Big Grin
After 13 seasons of losing gloves and getting that wonderfull stench of hand sweat marinating my gloves I learned to buy ghetto gloves for a $1.99 at the grocery store near my place. All gloves eventually get wet no matter what you buy. I buy ghetto gloves and just chuck em when they fall apart or get too funky.

Interesting. Well I don't lose my gloves, and they don't really get wet. I ended up getting Drop gloves to back up my Romes.
just use oven mitts... they are the shizz Big Grin
