    I've never had an issue like that with the liners on my Hestras, I really like being able to switch a wet liner out with a dry liner if they wet out.

    Yup. Too bad the Free the Powders don't have removable liners a la Hestra.

    I've been called much worse.

    I'm becoming a huge fan of the products made by mags. The Colorado Freeride System jackets and now these gloves...good stuff and has to result in good karma also.

    Thanks for the reminder, need to place my order. Size run true in your case? I need a xl in BD's but Marmot xl's are on the big side.

    Won an Antero II from Mike last year, high quality gear that quickly became my go to. Planning to grab another this season (yeti white wasn't the best choice for hiding dirt/tree scuffs) to support the mag made products. Hope he starts making a line of pants in the near future.

    Got my gloves this week. I've got a pair of size 8 Hestra XCR 3-fingers, and ordered the large FTP per the website's suggestion. Fit feels similar to the 8 Hestra. Insulation on the FTP seems much more substantial, which was my biggest complaint with the XCR's; just not that warm. I'll be really surprised if the FTP's aren't significantly warmer. I want to say that the large feels a little snug, but the site says to expect the leather to stretch some, and the insulation to pack out a little, so I don't think it will be an issue. I usually run between a medium and a large, depending on MFR, (med in a Marmot) for whatever that's worth.

    Also ordered the FTP leather balm, and applied liberally. Seemed to improve the leather's flexibility immediately, bordering on dexterous as fuck, but need to run some tests in sub-zero temps before publishing findings.

    Thanks Bend. I went back and noticed MNIAW's fit comments in his original post and went with the xl's to be safe. If I remember right, last time I tried on hestra's I was a 10 so sounds like I made the right choice.

    Mags,


    Thanks for your comments. It’s tough getting started, so we really appreciate all the kind words for our gloves. The whole concept of Free the Powder Gloves is a better priced quality ski glove for serious skiers, like the TGR Community. But we have an even better deal: we have a supply of long cuff gloves that have minor spot marks in the leather that we’re going to offer to the TGR Community for $39.99. Learn more and see photos at our Mag Deal page. Go to our homepage and click on the TGR icon at the bottom.

    Just received my order of FTP gloves. Great feeling glove that I am sure are going to be warm. Been using the same pair of Old REI gloves for 10 years and figured the frostnip was too much to handle anymore. Highly recommend em! I bought the long cuff, only feedback, would prefer the cuff portion to be a little more roomy. {Personally I like riding with my jacket tucked into em, in order to make that easier i would dig a bit more room there!

    PS; Thanks for the awesome stuff with the delivery FTP!!!

    Be very stoked if you guys could offer a model of your glove with a very very very thin durable liner stitched in. I'm talking so thin that it basically isn't a liner for insulation, just comfort against a raw leather inside. Most times I would wear that shell alone, but sometimes I'd then use my own $5 liners, or homeless liners left over from expensive brand gloves who's shell failed after 30 days.

    The catalyst for him starting the company was his annoyance of overpaying for ski gloves. He wanted to offer a glove that could match the quality and comfort of other premium gloves without having to fork over $100+.

    This is the first season of production. Last season he gave a bunch of pre-production gloves to patrollers and everyday skiers to put through the ringer and they held up very well. The gloves have Good supple leather, are very warm and comfortable, and they stayed dry and breath well. As of now there are only two styles, gauntlet, and non-gauntlet. I prefer NG but the gauntlet is stout and wont bunch up.

    I'll talk to him about possibly offering a TGR code if a few of you are interested.

    I tried them on at Ullrfest and they are indeed fucking sexy! Cant' believe they are only $59.

    This reminds me... I told you I'd get you a pair of Ninja Ices and I have not. Shoot me your shipping addy in a PM when you get a minute.
