I remember when I first met Dustin Goss, the founder of POW Gloves, in 2002 and the entire POW empire was run out of a small house in North Seattle. Fast forward to 2011 and POW has a full-on Seattle headquarters, distribution in 37 countries worldwide and multiple gloves utilize GORE-TEX® technologies for better performance (new for the 2011-'12 season).
The Assault GTX® Gloves are some of my favorite gloves for the ‘11-’12 season and will not let you down. These gloves ooze luxury with GORE-TEX® glove inserts, super comfortable Polypro anti-pill polyester micro-fleece liners, Primaloft insulation, goatskin leather palms and a 20,000g/20,000mm Sotina nylon shell. Your hands will be toasty warm all day, your gloves will move the way that you want them to even in the coldest of temps thanks to the supple goatskin leather and the hybrid partial gauntlet will keep out snow on even the deepest of days.
These gloves are not the most inexpensive gloves on the market, but are definitely designed to last for a really long time. Instead of buying crappy gloves season after season, I highly recommend spending a little bit more and grabbing a pair of these so that you can enjoy some gloves for the long haul.
