DaKine Mustang glove

MustangDaKine makes a wide range of gloves for skiing and snowboarding. The Mustang is classifed as their "high performance freestyle" glove. It’s so supple it feels more like a dress or driving glove, but the padding on the knuckles and the back of the hand gives up its serious side.

Getting down to business the Mustang has pre-curved fingers, although the leather is so soft finger stiffness is really not a factor. The cuff is neoprene lined, but the rest of glove is leather and will get wet during a day throwing powder. The cushy tricot lining will keep that wetness from affecting your hands too much.

The cuff has a zipper, but it just barely snugs the fit and isn’t meant to stabilize the wrist at all. A better design choice might have been some kind of elastic or adjustable webbing that could keep snow out no matter what. If you’re looking for a light-duty glove for warm and not too wet conditions that can double for about-town duty it’s a good choice, especially given the reasonable price.
