FTP Gloves is short for Free the Powder Gloves. We were founded in Park City, Utah in 2013 with the goal of making premium quality leather ski gloves at half the price of other ski glove makers. FTP Gloves believes that the current ski glove market pricing structure is highly adverse to the consumer with steep markups from production costs. We don't follow that strategy -we sell direct online, by-passing ski shop middlemen, and pass along operational cost savings to our customers.
FTP Glove's design is unique because we use non-rigid materials that stretch and break-in much more than your average ski glove. This is achieved by using soft cowhide leather, 4-Way stretch softshell material instead of hardshell nylon material, and our proprietary insulation called Breathefil which is formulated to breathe exceptional well. The primary purpose of the use of non-rigid materials is too allow our customers to buy a glove that breaks in for a near-custom fit. Most ski gloves are designed for showroom fit and sale, not use in the field.
