I don't go on the mountain without them! I believe the burton wrists guards provide enough stiffness to prevent your wrists from bending too far back during a crash but enough flexibility to grab your board for tweeks. I have had some good crashes off rails, jumps and just cruising down the mountain. These wrists guards have saved my wrists from breaking multiple times. They are comfortable but i would say that if you strap down the hand really tight, your thumb will begin to cramp. Other than that, i have had no issues. Even though i don't fall much, i don't feel comfortable riding without them.

The wrist guards will make your hand bigger so keep that in mind when you are buying gloves. I would recommend buying gloves a size up so they will fit. I like to wear mittens and they fit great inside.

They are pretty durable, I've had mine for over 2 seasons and they still look brand new. These are a must for anyone who want to get some protective gear for the mountain.

Gloves are stylish, sturdy, and feel like they would protect well against a fall. However, i found them a bit tight around the hand and thumb, causing my hand to tingle a couple of times despite wearing a large with the straps on relatively loosely. Also, they were tough to fit under my gloves, but it could have just been that my gloves were to tight.

Comments about Burton Impact Wrist Guards:

I wasn't keen on the idea of wrist guards at first I can't lie. These however are very comfortable and give me some comfort while riding that I didn't have before. I purchased the burton workhorse mittens to accomadate these and the combo is great.

          Comments about Burton Impact Wrist Guards:

          If you are a beginner snowboarder or someone who simply desires to prevent your wrist from injury, this item is for you. Take my word! I bought these for my wife so I didn't have to worry about her injuring herself on the magic carpet while I shredded the mountain alone. Thank you Burton for giving me a break from giving my wife a lesson.

          Good worst protection but too bulky

          Comments about Burton Impact Wrist Guards:

          I purchased these to protect my wrists as I am an artist and draw for a living. But I found them to be quite bulky and hard to fit into my gloves. I don't know if I would recommend this product. They keep your wrists protected though and also keep your hands warm. I may try to find gloves with wrist protection already incorporated into them. I've read other reviews but for me, I had a hard time getting them over my gloves and them being way too bulky :/

          As a beginner, these helps reduce the impact on your wrists since I tend to fall down hands first. If you do get these, I recommend that you get larger gloves.

            I ordered a size too small. Since it was universal fit, it was hard to use the sizing chart that was divided into Men and Women. I am 5' 10" with larger hands for a woman. The Small fit too small and felt really uncomfortable. The top of my hand also was very imuncofortable. I would go for the medium if I ordered them again but I returned them for another option.

            Comments about Burton Impact Wrist Guards:

            These are excellent wrist guards. They are way slimmer than wrist guards used for rollerblading. If you are a beginner, I highly recommend these because you are going to fall on your hands and it is going to hurt your wrists! Especially if you consistently fall on them. The only downfall is that my hands were overheating while I using them in the spring, so I'd suggest wearing lighter gloves with them. I used these with mittens and finger gloves and they both fit fine with only a little but of harder work since it is making your hands bigger. Overall, great product, highly reccommended for beginners and for peoplease trying new tricks where they are bound to fall. Good luck and have fun!

              Since I just got a cast off from having a broken wrist, I put a lot amid faith in these guards! They are very low profile and incredibly effective. I am less afraid of coming down hard than I was before my injury.
