    What about boiling the gloves? If it doesn't make them waterproof, DD can always post a photo of them on his plate before he eats them.

    We still have yet to see a full technique posted. We need temps, times, etc for this whole thing to come together.

    FWIW I work 40+ hours a week in Kincos, but when I'm freeskiing I wear real ski gloves - Hestras, Smartwools, Black Diamond, etc. - because they're better, more dexterous, warmer. IMO/IME Kincos are work gloves. And if they're too stiff, you're not working hard enough.

    /snark

    To waterproof Kincos, turn oven to 200 degrees, when it's warm turn it off and put the gloves in it for 10 minutes. Take 'em out, put 'em on, do the hand-washing thing with Snow Seal for a couple minutes. Then set the gloves aside until yer ready to use 'em.

    See now I donít even bother with other gloves any more. Too spendy and not durable enough. I do have big burly Hestras for COLD weather but I rarely need them.

    FTR, Obenauf's LP is way better than SnoSeal

    Maybe, but there always seems to be a tube or tin of it in the patrol locker room that I can help myself to.

    No, SnoSeal is not garbage. It was state of the art 80 years ago when Ome Daiber invented it. But Obenauf's LP is way better.

    I like Hubberd's better than Obenhuaf's it's less sticky and the ingredients are very similar.

    I just snosealed a bunch of leather gloves and boots and now yous tell me there's superior product. What's better about Huberd's over Obenauf''s?


    I like snoseal. Suppose it's a bit tacky but I apply it heavy

    Sno-seal probably not the best for gloves, although it's what I use. The point of sno-seal for mountaineering boots was that it didn't soften the leather. With gloves, soft is nice. I'm thinking I might give that Oberwhatever stuff a try, since it contains oil. Oil worked to soften baseball gloves back in the day.

    just got a new pair of leather ski gloves. Is it necessary to apply a beeswax waterproofing grease prior to first use?

    Iíve had good results with this.

    No heat involved, just apply and buff with a rag.

    Gloves arenít as stiff as my snow sealed ones. I need to reapply once a season in the PNW but it takes only a few minutes.
