My guess is that you should not spend too much on gloves. They will wear
and torn because of for example carrying your board.

Removable inserts makes washing them much easier. For the same reason, I
would not recommend gore-tex. They will smell badly after only a few
days.

The built-in wrist support of gloves I've seen, was not effective. You
better buy a wrist support and large enough gloves.

How warm do you need your gloves to be? If your clothes are not warm
enough, you will notice that your hands and feet become cold. Then the
solution is not to have warmer gloves and socks, but warmer clothes and
something on your head. Of simply board harder :-)

So make sure you only judge on how warm the gloves are when the rest is
already OK.
