The Burton AK Yeti Glove is Burton’s flagship glove that provides a really good fit and feel to it as well as top notch Gore-Tex waterproofing. It’s not the warmest glove out there but it’s got a feel to it that I haven’t experienced with many other gloves.
The liner feels like it isn’t separate but instead it feels like it’s bonded with the leather outer part. Even a tight fitting glove like this is easy on and off.
I could easily get away with wearing other cheaper gloves and have a great time but the fit with this is addicting. It just slowly becomes part of your hand and where I ride in Tahoe lately it’s usually above 20 f so these gloves get worn a lot.
I’ve used the touch screen tech lately and have to say it’s not perfect but it does work and work well enough to pick up a call or handle a few tasks but it’s not ideal for typing out a long message. It’s mainly for just checking a few emails, texts, other apps ect and then getting back to what you should be doing on the hill. Overall I’m impressed with this glove and although it’s not a perfect one glove quiver it’s got an amazing fit and it’s warmer than you would think for how thick it is.
