New Gloves - Which to Buy? in Snow talk, trip reports, Japan avalanche & backcountry Posted January 15, 2009 Bought a pair of Burton-brand gloves last year in Jimbocho. I can't believe it, but they're already falling apart. Especially the finger-tips--the top layer is peeling away... I guess I can't trust brand-names anymore... Can anyone recommend what kind of gloves I should get as replacements? I need to get them before my next trip on the 24th... Thanks in advance!
