We founded Free the Powder to make gloves and mittens of the quality and price that we ourselves had searched for, but could seemingly never find.
I’m a backcountry skier who gets cold hands easily, which means I need really warm hand protection that also provides excellent dexterity for handling gear. The problem is, warmth and dexterity are on opposite ends of glove design. And having a limited budget compounds the problem.
So, after 40 years in ski country as a ski racer, backcountry ski bum, and mountain climber I set out to find a solution to this problem. Thus began an extensive research and development odyssey in 2013.
Now, with the help of a small team of designers, leatherworkers, and a group of dedicated skiers and Ski Patrol, we have found a solution to the problem, and are proud to offer you Free the Powder Gloves.
Thank you for buying our gloves and mittens,
Chase & Shannon Stewart
Unisex sizing. Free the Powder Gloves
have a fairly standard initial fit, but our
gloves are made with all-stretchable
materials so they break-in and conform
to your hand like no other ski glove.
