    One reason to get Kinkos extra large verse the flylow that are already cooked is that flylow extra large does not fit my extra large hand where as Kinkos extra large fits my extra large hand. All you gotta do is cook them. I don't even cook them I just put them on top of a portable electric radiator on a cookie sheet. Heat them up to open pores in leather, and then slap Sno seal on them. Sno seal even says that it is not a good idea to bake again after you have applied the Sno seal. All you want to do is heat the glove up and apply the Sno seal and let it dry. Not cook again. So I don't know why flylow does the triple baking process. Not necessary.

    Whatever Flylow does it seems to work. The ones I wore out after 3-4 seasons never, as far as I could tell, absorbed a single drop of water, even in the pacific north-wet.

    Using the non-afterbake , I expect to re-apply snoseal every season.

    I usually put my gloves on a piece of 1x in the oven so the leather doesn't over heat at the contact spots . At low heat, it probably doesn't matter, but that's what I do.

    It is so easy to do and the can lasts forever. Doesn't bug me in the least.

    You might find snoseal at your local bi-mart, walmart, or coastal farm/ranch (or whatever farm supply is nearby you)

    Last container of SnoSeal I bought came from Fred Meyers, but that was ~5 years ago.

    Bought some about a week ago at Sportsmans Warehouse.

    What model kinkos can you Snoseal? All leather only or like the insulated leather/canvas ones too?

    Need to replace 10yr old gloves, and as I've gotten older, I like buying non-ski specific gear.

    I have the leather canvas pairs and have baked them several times (low temp @150f) with no problems. Do the same with my Free the Powder mitts and gloves and they turn out real nice. Bake away.

    Don't know that the toaster oven would be the best - heat source is pretty close, and the temp control is "kinda" accurate...better off throwing a sheet of aluminum foil on your middle rack in the oven and doing it right.
    Gravity. It's the law.

    For another data point, FlyLow bakes their gloves - rebranded Kincos, for the record - at 210f. They state as much on their tags.

    So basically, the temp isn't as important as it is getting the gloves warm with even heat and allowing the SnoSeal to soak in.

    Re-cooked my kincos yesterday. Slathered with snoseal, into a 200 degree oven (on a piece of foil with the vent fan turned on) for a couple of hours. All soaked in, no residue, nice patina.

    I know. I forgot they were in there for a while. But that snoseal is fully embedded!
