How about the ski shops that service the HAwaiian slopes? Are there no Carhart suppilers ? Carhart makes good, and reasonable snowmobile outfits, I asume they make gloves.
WHenever you buy some article of clothing that is "specially made" for X or Y activity, always assume that theres more marketing than technology involved. I sw a pair of "Special" ice fishing gloves with all sorts of dumb crap built in (like rubberized palm pads so the fish wont slip--)AS IF.
When I go Ice fishin, I always have 3 pair of cheap gloves. Same thing when I went skiing, I used a pair of hogskin farm gloves when I was going down the slopes, and always had a pair of comfy mittens clasped to my ski coat.
Whats so special about the gloves for snowboarding that really isnt alsoabout marketing?
