I’m always a fan of snowboarding in mittens. Riding in different conditions from park, all mountain, and powder conditions you run into different obstacles that may injure your hands. The SHRED. all mountain protective mittens are geared toward keeping your hands protected from the elements and the potential impacts that can happen while you’re riding. These mittens, in black with orange accents, are low profile with enough insulation to keep your hands warm during cold conditions (I’ve used them in temps down to 0 degrees fahrenheit) and into the upper 30s to low 40s.
Your knuckles and thumb are protected by SHRED. SLYTECH™ shock absorption which you’ll hardly even notice, until you hit a random tree branch or smack some hard snow with your knuckles and don’t really even notice. They really lighten the blow to your hands, and you don’t lose any dexterity with these mittens. The only time I notice the SLYTECH™ protective material is around my thumb when it’s very cold out and it’s slightly stiff. Otherwise these mittens are warm, dry, and very comfortable. They are slightly snug around the wrist, I still am wearing the same size as my other mittens, it’s just a little more effort to put the mittens on in the coldest temperatures. These mittens are low profile and you will be able to wear them under your jacket cuff, the black and orange accents are a great touch with the SHRED. logo on your knuckles. The palm material has stayed intact with no issues from putting my hands down on eurocarving and the stitching has held up as well, something I’ve found isn’t the case in other mittens. These mittens are grippy too so you’ll be able hold those nose and tail grabs easily. They are a great protective mitten at a slightly higher price point, but in my opinion well worth it!
I am very impressed with the SHRED. All-Mountain Protective Mitten, if you want some extra protection on your hands while riding these are a great option. They have a unique style and are low profile so no one will notice the protective material. They are warm, dry, and comfortable. These mittens are durable and will last you several seasons if taken care of properly.
