New Gloves - Which to Buy? in Snow talk, trip reports, Japan avalanche & backcountry Posted January 17, 2009 My experience of Burton gloves isn't that good but their customer service was. Had a pair of toasters I think they were called, with weird leathery finger tips. The tips wore off within maybe 10 days so I took them back. The same thing happened with the replacements so I got my money back and bought some 3000yen no brand gloves from a resort that have now clocked up 30-40 days and still work great. I know Burton-bashing is quite a popular activity, but in this case I really couldn't recommend the gloves.
