As far as we know, Free the Powder® is the only ski glove company based in Park City, Utah. We design and test them right here, at Park City Canyons and the surrounding backcountry.
We are a direct seller of premium ski gloves. We do not sell to ski shops, even local ski shops (because they're middle men which affords us the ability to sell our gloves at such incredible prices). Our goal was to produce the most affordable, toughest, warmest, and driest glove with the best GRIP and DEXTERITY for skiing, snowboarding, snowmobiling, snowkiting, and mountain work. Love your paws with these plush ski gloves made from premium grain natural cowhide, water-proof and highly breathable softshell material, super-soft fleece lining, and insulated with 200 grams Breathefil™ with 3M Thinsulate®.
-Super tough, incredibly grippy, and very soft premium grain cowhide leather palms with leather reinforcement patch that protects all of the high wear areas of the palm. Most gloves are made of the much thinner goatskin, but not ours. We put 1-2 mm tough leather on top of tough leather.
-Our premium grain leather is tanned and treated for maximum softness and grip, and waterproofed with our special mixture of natural fatliquors. We do not use silicone-based waterproofing like most other glove makers and after-market waterproofing products because they make the leather slippery smooth, degrading the grip of the leather.
-Waterproof and HIGHLY breathable softshell nylon, treated with strong DWR (durable water repellent). Our softshell material is a woven polyester fabric that is strong, highly durable, very quick drying, and most importantly, much more breathable than the more common hardshell nylon of most gloves. Always choose breathable nylon fabrics for the back of the hand. Leather is a big no-no where your hand needs to breathe.
-Lined with super-soft fleece and insulated with 200 grams Breathefil™, our proprietary blend of insulation with 3M Thinsulate®. Breathefil™ is a special blend of synthetic fibers that maximizes breathability without losing warmth.
-Back of the hand wrist strap to ensure the perfect fit.
-Soft microfiber material on the back of the thumb to wipe your nose and face.
-Super easy-on, super easy-off comfort.
-The Free the Powder "Thurman the Ermine" Logo. A cute, playful creature that's a vicious carnivore, just like a powder skier/rider.
