I usually wear mitts throughout the colder winter months; in the early season and when spring arrives it’s always nice to have a pair of warm weather gloves when you need them. Dakine Crossfire gloves are a great addition to your gear bag and will come in “handy” when those warm spring days arrive. The nylon DWR-treated shell keeps your hands dry, and the palm is layered with synthetic suede and a silicone grip that allows you to hold on to your board on those late season methods in the park. Dakine has a great selection of colors to choose from, and for the price you can’t go wrong with these. The only criticisms I have are the touchscreen compatibility is a slightly cumbersome (nothing really beats a real finger, after all), and the index finger touchscreen layer has worn off slightly after five days of riding (possibly from too many early season hand drags). Other than that, these are a great spring glove choice for riding on those warm days!
