1. Best Ski/Snowboard Liner: The North Face 2014-15 ETIP Liners ($45.00)

I love these liners.  The North Face ETIP men’s liner gloves (Women’s click here) are light, quality glove liners with ten-finger conductivity.  The 2014 model is a significant upgrade from previous years and means that The North Face has finally has started to make the excellent gloves we expect from them. Although they are more expensive than some other touchscreen liners like the Outdoor Research Bio-Sensor touchscreen liners (which are also fantastic), these are solid, well-designed liners/light gloves with excellent conductivity.

Yes, they are expensive.  But the Outdoor Research Ambit Gloves are yet another superb product from a great company with a conscience.  If you are looking for some outstanding winter gloves rated down to -15F/-26C that are astonishingly well made, are available in both men’s and women’s, and offer some of the best conductivity on the market, you should get these.  I use them with liners for all of my on and off-piste adventures.

5. Best Utility/Duty Glove: Youngstown Glove Co. MWG  ($24.99)

The Youngstown Glove Company Military Work Gloves (MWG) remain the best utility/duty gloves we’ve seen.  These are rugged gloves with sturdy construction and relatively good conductivity at a great price. And though they are made from a number of different materials and pieces, most every detail appears to have been thoughtfully placed for a genuine purpose.
