    I may have missed it somewhere in this thread, but where are the gloves actually made? Park City? Overseas?

    When I got mine I tried to find where they are made. By law anything made outside of the US must indicate that, but sometimes it is hard to find the tag. I did not see a tag indicating where they were made. If they are made in the US, then I would think it is a real nice selling point. If they are made outside the US I am not calling them out. Expecting that to be the case as almost every piece of clothing like this is made overseas.

    And there you have it. Thanks dewam!

    As cat said, not surprising, nor a deal breaker. I don't know of any brand that does make ski gloves in the US.

    @freethepowder (or any folks who have received their short cuff)
    there's a note at the bottom of the short cuff page re: sizing being smaller than the gauntlet style
    is this comment true for the mag sale items only (irregular)? or is it true for the short cuff style in general?

    awesome deal on the gauntlet & now intrigued by the short cuff too...thx!

    Says right on them where they are made-not made in the USA but anybody thinking a $59 glove is made our sourced here in the usa is sadly misguided.

    I got some. Didn't need a $39 boater glove. Process was smooth customer service was great.

    took out the undercuffs today in 12 deg, no sun, no wind, snowing. hands were warm, I usually use mittens on days like today. Only once I had to turtle my fingers into the palms to warm...other than that some minor things bugging me 1) too much fluff in cuff 2) not easy to open velcro with gloves on 3) wanted the patch down on back of hand to break up a big blank piece of black fabric
    4) going to bar tack the piece of webbing I added but need to go to shop and its been snowing so no going to shop 5) then maybe bake em in snow seal 6) damn, wish I had got the $40 deal

    Mods
    to start

    cutting

    plucking a chicken, then sewing it closed

    finished product, will bar tack soon

    You really gussied up that glove with additional functionality, Mike. Nice work.
    Is that an adjustable/velcro wrist strap?

    ^it is an adjustable strap

    there was a shit pile of stuffing that came out of the cuffs
    but thinned down nicely

    before they were a little close to inside cuffs of a jacket. if you have elastic in your cuffs you are really going to have some difficulty

    I also do not like bulky cuffs for the space they take up when I put my gloves in my pockets or pack lid. But... one thing I found a while ago is that an insulated and warm wrist goes a long way to keeping fingertips warm. I even know of some old coots who ski with tennis wristbands on cold days, just to keep that pulse area warm, rather than leave it as a mostly un-insulated zone between glove and jacket layering. Don't ask me if it is placebo or science.

    Well just got my XL short cuffs, and (without mods) they fit great. Most XLs are too big and larges are too small for my meat hooks. Definitely better than any lifty approved cheapos I've used in the past, and for $60 they seem like they are made as well and probably better than gloves twice as much. Full disclosure: it is 50 degrees here, but so far so good. Great service, got them 3 days after ordering.

    that cereal was last night. my mini review was before the mods. I can tell you from being inside the wrist area there are still layers of insulating foam after I pulled out the thinsulate. So, I think the wrist will still be warm. plus the wrist is already covered by layers (base, mid, etc) and the jacket. so it was eliminating redundancy and bulk screwing with ingress egress that I was going for

    ps I still think mine look cooler with the FTP patch on the back where it can be seen and better advertising for FTP

    +1 on the sizing question on the shorties. I wear Med gloves in Flylow.

    Mags,


    Thanks again for all your support. I was impressed by the comment from the poster who mentioned wristbands to keep your hands warm. I wrote a blog post about the truth of my short cuff glove design on our website.


    In cold temperatures, I have always had to wear mittens, due to poor circulation in my extremities (Reynaud’s Syndrome). Most human beings have some level of poor circulation in their extremities. So I set out to design an affordable glove that was very warm without sacrificing dexterity. The #1 comment from nearly every one of the ski patrollers and backcountry skiers we talked to (hundreds), is great dexterity means cold hands. Choose one or the other.


    How do you overcome this problem?
    1. Add more thin, dense, less lofty insulation, 200 grams.
    2. Get rid of the membrane insert, which traps much more moisture from the inside than it prevents moisture penetration from the outside. Mitigate sweat build-up that turns your hands cold.
    3. The cuff needed to enhance dexterity AND warmth. The only way I could solve this conundrum is a glove wrist that was snug at the base of the hand, which holds the palm in place and prevents the glove from “floating” on your hand and a short/medium length cuff with thicker, dense insulation. One of the amazing remedies, I learned during testing, is that thinness of blood vessels on the under-side of your wrist is a very common reason for circulatory-issue-coldness of your fingers (Reynaud’s again). But to deal with the warmer, bulkier wrist I needed to compensate with a larger than normal Velcro closure. This unique combination allowed me to wear these short-cuff gloves both under and over my cuffs.


    This combination became the first glove I have been able to wear on very cold days in my life.

    Thanks again,

    Just to add my 2¢ to the cuff discussion, I bought the long-cuff FTP gloves for super-cold days at work when the beater Kincos wouldn't cut it, so I'm all for a long, warm cuff.

    Keep up the good work.
    I swear on my glass eye,

BD Mercury's are warm as hell but I could definitely live without their excessive bulk.?
    I ski at the coldest place around & the BD Guide gloves aren't warm enough even though I always use a glove liner as well, but I don't know what else to buy as I can't stand the lack of dexterity in a mitt, so hopefully these will be an improvement! I'm concerned that a non removable shell will require more drying effort at the end of the day, but we'll see, I'm all about the gauntlet as well, cuffs over gloves is counterintuitive & a major hassle as I'm always digging around in my coat.
    Calmer than you dude

    i've never really understood gauntlet-style beyond they're easier on/off...unless you spend a lot of your time with your hands above your head?
    gloves inside sleeve cuffs is more weather resistant
    water/snow/drips all run downhill
    cinches don't stop this

    and those times you plunge your hand down into the snow, neither way is better at keeping snow out of your wrists


    i'll see what the fuss is this winter, i guess
