    My only (tiny) complaint about the SX is that I wish the cuff were tighter and made for a better seal against spindrift and me crashing -- more like the elastic cuff on the Kinco's that gives you a solid seal. MiCol, any chance of tweaking the cuff so that you get a better seal?
    Try tucking the whole glove under the sleeve then close the wrist velcro of your coat around the glove. You won't have anything exposed and gives you decent mobility with your hands.

    I do that with all my gloves. It helps, but an elasticized cuff would complete the seal. And if you don't want to fiddle with sleeve velcro/closure, a good seal on the glove's cuff would make that fiddling unnecessary. Small tweak, but with that, the glove would be absolutely perfect for my preferences.

    Quick shout-out for FTP MTB gloves. I love em. They're cheap, last 4x as long as Fox gloves, and they fit great.

    I don't think MiCol has any association with FTP.....

    Hahaha, you're totally right. I guess I just wish MiCol was running FTP too!

    Just got a pair of the SX, stoked to try a glove again after about five years of mitten life. Quick question, does anyone use NikWax on the softshell back? Would I even need to for stormy CO days?

    I nikwax the leather and hit the softshell portion with silicone spray. I don't think it's necessary but might help on wetter days, but for CO probably not so important.

    Just pulled the trigger on a pair of the RX gloves. Was skiing yesterday with my Hestra's and my fingers were cold, despite temps in the mid 20's. I guess after about 7 years or so, those gloves have lost their warmth function. Still in good shape, with o serious cuts or abrasions. Just don't have the warmth factor any more.

    Didn't treat the softshell, used snoseal on leather (I know, blasphemy). First trial today in single digit temps, fingers were toasty! Great gloves, thanks for the excellent customer service.

    Tried out my new Spring gloves. Very comfortable, great fit and finish, and appear high quality bomber gloves as expected. Still a bit too warm for most of my ski touring needs. If I’m being critical, the dexterity isn’t quite up to expectations, and the liner material gets a bit sticky when I’m putting them on with damp hands. The same exterior, but with just a thin slippery liner would be perfect for my needs. I expect they’ll work great for touring in colder conditions, and for (as designed) milder lift serviced days.

    I had weird days where my fingers would be cold and temps didn't necessarily dictate they be so. Others it would be much colder and I'd be toasty. Same gloves each instance

    Just bought a couple pairs spring and with liner. Other than trying on and close inspection I haven't actually tried them out yet but the quality seems to be there for sure. FTP is still extending the discount promo so be sure to include it with your order.

    Skied at Stowe today. Was 14* at the base when I started. Those mittens were like ovens. I'm impressed.

    I’ve got kind of a tl;dr story but I want to throw out more props for FTPs great personal customer service. Those guys take the CS to the next level. It’s like shopping at the corner store. And the gloves are good shit too.
    I swear on my glass eye,

    I wore my FTP bike gloves skiing today because I forgot my kinkos and they were great. Might have to keep that in mind for spring.

    I like them as touring glove on the skintrack.

    Was worried about my fingers freezing on a -15 to -20C resort day and sure enough my 2014-15 SX gloves kept my hands warm and toasty. Big ups FTP.

    Do the mittens have the individual fingers inside?
