Snowboarding is one of mankind's top seven creations of all time, but the learning curve can be rough, especially on your wrists. Keep them protected with the Dakine Nova Wristguard Glove. The moderate 210 grams of insulation keeps you hands warm when the temperature drops, and they'll stay dry thanks to the waterproof polyurethane insert. There's a hard-wearing leather palm, which holds up to boards, tow ropes, and anything else you'd be grabbing onto at the mountain. However, the removable, integrated wrist guards are the key to these gloves. They support both the palm and the top of your hand, and the glove straps hold the guard in place to keep you protected. Snowboarding is the best, and it's way more fun when you can avoid a trip to the ER.
