Keeping dry and warm when snowboarding is not only comfortable but also a great way to avoid unwanted numbness and frostbite. Snowflakes falling on your wrists will melt on your skin making your hands damp and cold.
Good snowboard wrist guards not only keep off the snow but also protect your wrists from injury. They are mandatory for beginners who will most probably keep touching ground before they perfect the art or for hard-core snowboarders who like hitting the slopes hard.
