I have worn every glove from the Spring Glove to the Race AL. As an IFMGA guide, I rely on my gear to be functional, durable, and warm. FTP gloves surpass my expectations even while working with ropes, climbing equipment, and end of the day beers on the terrace! They fit true to size, sport supple, durable leather, with minimal packing out!
I have been using my gloves now for two winters, the upcoming 18-19 winter will be my third. They remain the best pair of gloves I have ever owned and they look very nice too. I plan on using these until they wear out and buying another pair soon thereafter.
I'm on year 3 of my Free the Powder gloves, and I have nothing but positive things to say about them. The workmanship is top notch and the gloves keep my hands warm even on very cold days. Cannot recommend this brand enough!
I needed to replace my Hestra gloves. I talked to some locals on a chair at Canyon about their Free the Powder gloves; they gave me glowing reviews. I went on the web site and bought a pair and could not be happier with them. Free the Powder gloves are as high quality as any you can find on the market and at a fraction of the costs. I recommend them highly.
As a ski patroller I am very hard on my gear. These gloves have lasted me well over 100 days of use and abuse in some harsh conditions. These are definitely the best value in gloves I have found.
I volunteer at Snowbird, ski at Alta. 70 ski days a year on average. Standing as a Mountain Host for a few hours is not exactly fun, so having great gloves makes my job a joy. I have to remove/put on my gloves constantly. I listen to other serious skiers as to their favorite gear and Free the Powder wins. Great pricing, excellent construction, lots of choices, excellent fit. You don't see that lonely "one glove in the road home" when you buy this brand, it goes in the bag first and ski days are great thanks to them. The mtn bike gloves work fine too. My kids depend on their gloves to survive hikes like Mt. Shasta, Mt. Superior, the Tushars, Great Basin and working night lifts at Brighton. They insist on Free the Powder for below zero hikes where there is no turning around.
Very helpful customer service courteous and prompt.
Love the gloves I would buy another pair if these ever wear out and of course recommend them to all my ski & snowboard friends.
Everything on the "What makes Free the Powder Gloves different' web page is absolutely true. Warm, dry, and comfortable. They are our go to glove and mitts for backcountry and resort skiing. They are also durable and long lasting.
