Burton AK Clutch Glove 2018 - 2013 Review by The Good Ride
The Burton AK Clutch Glove is one of my personal favorites and a glove I often wear. Peter also owns this glove but mainly because last years model came in red. Being a professional hand model he likes to keep his pretty hands highly visible.

Burton AK Clutch Glove Past Reviews
The 2015 Burton AK Clutch Glove has the same design except it upgraded the thumb and index fingers to work with touch screen phones. They are also more durable because of the extra layer of leather.
The 2014 AK Clutch Glove feels like it’s sturdier and has a longer cuff but both years are great. One thing that is great about Burton Gloves is they don’t just stitch the liner in at the top of the fingers. They do a lot more than that so the liner doesn’t get out of place when you pull them off. The liner feels like all of it is connected with the rest of the glove. They don’t feel like 2 pieces but one. Not many other companies do this.

07/08 & 11/12 Burton AK Clutch Glove
These gloves are well made. My 11/12 models came with lanyards which I like. You can take them off on the lift with out fear of loosing them. They do not regulate hand temperature as well as the DaKine Cobra. It seems that unless the temps are 20F or below, they get soaked from both the inside and outside. The Cobra's will do that same, but not as quickly. I've also had the Clutch not keep my hands warm. It seams that I'm always inbetween states with these gloves... either wet and baking or cold. While I like the design of the AK Clutch, I would probably purchase a pair of Cobras the next time around. The caveat is that everyone's hands have different blood flow, fat %, finger length, etc... that may be what is at work here.
