The glove features a synthetic leather nose wipe at the outer thumb area, oval rubber overlays on the backside fingers, a mesh fabric overlay at the lower backhand area, a neoprene coated knit fabric wristband with a rubber pull tab which is secured by means of a hook and loop fabric closure, and fourchettes. The cumulation of features show design for use in the sport of snowboarding.
