The Seirus Da Bone Ski Gloves look and feel like any other gloves, except that they have extra support on both sides of the wrist where it connects to your arm. The gloves are warm and comfortable with a rugged material on the palms, fingers and seams. Your hands are protected riding through the trees when pushing off branches and small obstacles. You don't even feel as though you're wearing extra wrist protection most of the time, that is the great thing about the Da Bone glove, it feels like a normal glove with an extra snug fit. The gloves feel about the same weight as any other glove. The way the wrist guards are built into the gloves makes them look like any other black ski or snowboarding glove. The Wrist gator keeps snow from getting into the glove and the easy tension strap on the glove allows you to tighten the wrist guard in one quick motion. Classic black is stylish and will go with the wildest or tamest looking ski and board gear. The rugged look of these gloves will show that you are looking to ride all day and the protection looks much more stylish that wearing a cast for the season. The gauntlet cuff will keep snow from getting in your gloves and keep you warm.
