Burton AK Guide Glove 2020 - 2014 Review by The Good Ride
The Burton AK Guide Glove is one of the best one glove solutions I have come across. It has warmth, room for a layer underneath, excellent waterproofing and great durability. It’s a glove I get year over year and spend most of the colder days with this on. It dries quickly for leather as well and it’s always ready for the next day.

2014 and Below AK Guide Glove Review
The fit is a little on the longer and slightly more narrow side. , only has a zipper and it’s not that hard to get on and off but I generally prefer a velcro strap around the cuff. It runs pretty long up the wrist so it can keep out some snow. All in all it’s a very nice technical piece of outerwear that could make a lot of serious riders happy. I’m personally much more into the AK Clutch glovearebut that’s not to say you wouldn’t be into this one.
The liner and the glove are very well connected so when you pull your hand out it’s super easy to put it back in again. Not many companies put this much time in their liners.

Best I've tried
I purchased these after my fingers started getting cold in some Hestra Fall Lines. They don't look as cool as the Hestra but are warmer, more water proof, better dexterity, and ability to use phone is clutch. I average 15 days a year at the resorts, have had these for 3 years so far and never had any issues, and are just starting to show some meaningful wear. The zipper on the cuff doesn't stay up, but otherwise, they're great. I'd like to try the Hestra Heli's or a burton 3 finger next, but these have never let me down - and I will always have a pair until they do.
