Best in Dexterity
Black Diamond Spark Glove/Mittens/Finger Glove

See all pictures

The Black Diamond Spark offers the additional warmth of a mitten, with all the benefits of a free finger. In keeping with all of other freeride gloves on this list, the Spark series is a no punches pulled, tough-as-nails, full-leather cuff glove.

The Spark series features a range of options from traditional gloves to mittens, but their finger glove is our favorite for snowboarding. The high degree of water resistance and extra dexterity makes fiddling with your binding much less of an inconvenience.

The biggest appeal of the Spark series is the price. It falls right in the Black Diamond target zone of professional standards and affordability, it’s a fully functional freeride glove appropriate for extreme weather conditions.

The flexible seamwork is fully sealed so you can get the maximum amount of movement without worrying about dampness leaking in, and is available in an alternative model with a gauntlet if you’re worried about snow leakage.
