Dakine Titan Gloves Review
The Dakine Titan Gloves are reserved 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 decent dexterity for a medium-heavy insulated glove. No prob running bindings, but zippers, and snowboard 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 Titan Glove ($64.95) is definitely 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. A real snowboarding glove for all conditions.
