2008 Model No Longer Available
Burton Gore-Tex Glove - Men's - 2008 BCS
You know what you want. Thatís why you demand Gore-Tex in your jacket and pants. Continue with the bomber protection of the Burton Menís Gore-Tex Glove. These waterproof breathable gloves protect your hands from the wind and water while Thermacore insulation keeps your digits warm. Burton integrated a small front pocket that functions as a vent or a place for a chemical hand-warmer. The removable liner's four-way stretch polyester wicks moisture and dries quickly to keep your hands dry. Burton designed the all-mountain Gore-Tex Gloves with a gauntlet, so you can pull them over your jacket sleeves. - Fall 2008.

My second season with these and they still going strong. I love these gloves. They always keep my hands warm and dry. If it gets real cold I slip a heat pack in the zip up pocket and I am good for the whole day. Highly recommended.
Warm and Toasty!

These are great gloves. They do not get wet and they keep my hands warm all day; even without the liners. The top pocket is a nice touch for hand warmers if needed. If your looking for durability, warmth, and comfort at a relatively reasonable price, look no further!

Best pair of gloves I have ever owned. 100% waterproof for sure! Warm and comfy. The fit was good for me. I normally wear a medium and they fit like all the other gloves I have worn. I like my gloves snug though, so use your best judgment. Best to try them on first if you can.

they are so nice that someone will steal just 1 of the liners from you if you drop it, but he will never get the other one i will hold on to that for life!
would these handle some ruff snowboarding and still keep your hands warm?

Best Glove Ever Owned
March 19, 2009
This is honestly the best gloves that I have ever owned. I am a really wild snowboarder and the kept my hands warm and dry. I would suggest washing these gloves by hand with little soap to preserve the water proof seal. I am very surprised to see bad reviews.
January 19, 2009
These gloves seemed like they would be good until I took them to the slopes. The gauntlets suck and your hands will get wet if you fall even if you tighten them all the way to your wrist and over your sleeve. The Gore-Tex worked pretty good, but your hands do get extremely cold if you sweat at all because these gloves don't breathe or wick away moisture. They are also very bulky and hard to maneuver in and out of pockets. I have to take them off to get into pockets. The only feature that I liked was the zipper pocket on the back for hand warmers.
December 9, 2008
I can not say much about the performance of the gloves, I expect them to be great. However; I was a little surprised about the sizing. My friend bought the same glove in a medium, I bought the large. It does not seem like they fit any different. With the liners in, it is a little tight and I do not have big hands at all. But with the liners out, they fit more than perfect. I would suggest if you plan on using the liners to size up one size.
Can anyone tell me why these gloves have 2 drawstrings? I know
Can anyone tell me why these gloves have 2 drawstrings? I know one of them you pull to lock out the snow, that's the one with the locking piece of plastic, but what is the point of the other drawstring with a large piece of plastic only that doesn't lock.

The second draw tightens to keep it snugly fit to your hand (does kind of lock -- like tightening the pull tabs on your backpack)... Also allows your jacket sleeve to move over the top of it (assuming you rock your style under glove -- vs. over glove style)

Good pair of gloves
March 16, 2009
This glove comes with the clever features I expect from Burton; The palms are a tough polymer material that I don't see failing any time soon, the cinches are drawstrings are designed to be handled while the other hand is gloved and clumsy, there's a nice little zip compartment on each hand, and the whole thing slides on and off like a dream. The only real drawback is that insulation is not great: water doesn't penetrate, as promised, but cold air definitely does, and your fingers will get a bit cold even in 25 degree F weather. The liners help, but they make the whole package bulky and the gloves become a bit tricky to put on, especially for the snowboarders out there smart enough to use wristguards.

i have had a chance to use the gloves and they exceeded my expectations! i was able to get them at a great price and they arrived to me fast.
Was great, but is still good
February 22, 2009
This is my second pair of Burton gore Gloves. As noted in previous reviews, they have made some changes, regretably not good ones. The gauntlet is at least 1" shorter and does not easily go over the cuff on my jacket. Why they did this makes no sense. Also the glove is smaller over all. I wear an extra large, and this second pair is smaller in every way. Because of these changes they require more effort to don and remove. They are warm, water proof, breath well, have idiot leashes, and the best one handed gauntlet closure system that I have used.
Hey Burton, fix the gauntlet and the overall size and this is the best glove for the $$ hands down!!!

My husband has Raynauds Syndrome (vessels in hands spasm and hands turn white) and it curtains his winter outdoor time. Would this be a good basic glove for walking the dog, going to outdoor events, etc?

Hands down best gloves I have owned...worth every dollar...a little bulky if you wear the under gloves with them, but even without the under gloves they keep you dry and warm...good buy
February 11, 2009
bought it because of the brand name and the removeable liner! not as great as i thought it would be. tha material is hard and always make my hands sore by end of the day. doesn't work well with the wrist guard because after a few trips, already seen tears and cracks on palm area. never try other brand before but should have something better out there.
OK but not great
January 30, 2009
These are OK but not great gloves. They are pretty bulky and warm initially but soon pack down and lose their warmth. Also, as one reviewer stated if you plan on much exertion don't use these as they do not breather very well at all and you will soon be left with cold clammy digits.
I used these approx 6 times in the Rockies and they are ready to throw away. The "toughskin" or whatever it is on the palms is weak, it has begun separating and disintegrating around the base of the fingers.
By the afternoon these gloves start freezing up on you too.
I am off to look for some pittards.
January 29, 2009
I wore these for 3 hours in 10 degree weather and my fingers were cold the whole time. They are so bulky that you have to take off your glove to do anything, even zip up your coat. The gore-tex liner had very large uncomfortable seams on every finger. I put on my $20 fleece mittens and they were 100% warmer. Worst gloves I ever owned. I had to give them away

These gloves seemed like they would be good until I took them to the slopes. The gauntlets suck and snow will get in and get your hands wet if you fall even if you tighten them all the way to your wrist and over your sleeve. The gauntlet issue could just be kinda a personal preference though. The Gore-Tex worked pretty good, but your hands do get cold if you sweat at all because these gloves don't breathe or wick away moisture. They are also very bulky and hard to maneuver in and out of pockets. I have to take them off to get into pockets. The only feature that I liked was the zipper pocket on the back for hand warmers. But for the price these gloves are pretty good.
Really Really Warm Gloves
January 19, 2009
These gloves never let me down in the cold New England slush. They might get a little damp from sweat but when you wear it for an all day session non stop i'm not surprised, the vents are great and pocket is perfect for a heat pack. The liners are even better than i expected, might even be able to double as pipe gloves. This is a really great deal for an AMAZING glove.
Slightly tight, but great gloves
January 4, 2009
These gloves (I got medium) are slightly narrow and a bit difficult to put on, compared to the same gloves from Burton 2 seasons ago and other brands. The large gloves were too long in the fingers. However, the inner gloves, which can be used separately, are thicker than the older model, and the gloves are overall very warm (downright hot, at times).
January 12, 2009
Best gloves ive ever had! Never get wet or cold. The Gore-Tex make them much more durable too
January 7, 2009
Best gloves we have had in years kept the hands warm even with 20 below temps! Great gloves at a great price and the inner glove can be used after boarding.

Sick gloves, i have two pair and they have never failed! Always nice and toasty!!
January 4, 2009
I tried a L first and it looked like I would need an XL. When I got the XL, it seemed that the liner got bigger (not quite big enough) but the shell remained the same size - way too small!
Very very good
January 4, 2009
Going by the sizing guide provided, the small size should've been good for me. However, they were pretty tight and uncomfortable. I was able to return them and get a bigger size quickly and with no problem (kudos to backcountry--you guys rock!). As for the gloves' performance, they are very warm. It's early January in Japan and I have to take the liners out because my hands get too hot. I went to the mountain 3 days in a row with heavy snow/sleet fall and my hands stayed very dry as well. Great gloves and great price. Thank you backcountry!
Not true to size
January 2, 2009
Order a size up on these puppies. If you usually wear a XL glove, this is not the glove for you. It will not fit. Other than that, they would have been great.
Warm dry and not to much $$$
December 23, 2008
Great gloves... use the liners and youre good for a days worth of dry hands. I gave this 4 stars cause I have the mitts as well and the mitts own these. I use these for toolin around pre-mountain. I did not have a problem with the sizing they fit well.

These are really nice and they keep your hands really warm.
