Dakine Titan Leather Glove Review

I’ve owned dozens of pairs of Dakine gloves and mitts. They have always been a staple of good design, form, and function. I’ve had a sort of falling out with Dakine over the last several seasons, which mean I simply haven’t had a pair in a while. But then low and behold when these Dakine Titan Gore-Tex Gloves showed up, we were reunited!

These gloves are warm. I run hot, and the 230 gm High loft synthetic insulation is more than enough to keep me warm on the coldest days. I actually reserve these for really cold days only. They have a Gore-tex insert so I’m not worried about staying dry, but the bag like insert can feel a bit stuffy. Now I know what the zippered pouch/vent is for on the back of your hand. Also, you can put a hand warmer in there if you’re cold blooded.

Size and fit wise these run a bit large. These are mediums, but they fit my size large hands perfectly. They have the decent dexterity for a medium heavy insulated glove. No prob running bindings, but zippers, and helmet straps, not so much.

And did I mention the gauntlets? It’s been a coon’s age since I’ve ridden a pow day with my sleeves inside my gloves and guess what? It works! Now I can never go back. They fit under sleeves well enough if you’re worried about your “kook” status. The leather palms feel soft and durable, but are a little slippery when grabbing the board. Hitting them with the included Nikwax gave ‘um grip and kept the water out.

The Dakine Leather Titan Snowboard gloves ($64.95) are definitely a good value in the mid-range/insulated/gauntleted/Gore-tex/leather palmed/cold weather/takin’ me back glove market. It’s nice to get back together with an old friend like Dakine and find they are still doing it right.
