    • FINEST LEATHER –we use premium cowhide leather that is tanned and treated to be plush soft and highly water-resistant.
    • SOFTSHELL –waterproof and ultra-breathable.
    • FIXED LINER –made from super-soft fleece and 300+ grams Breathefil™, our proprietary insulation that maximizes breathability and minimizes hand sweating -the prime cause of cold hands.

    • Direct pricing
    • FREE shipping and exchanges.
  • The concept of Free the Powder

    Take your average premium brand ski glove and make these changes:

    • Make the leather thicker and softer to make them tougher with better dexterity.
    • Add an over-sized reinforcement patch that protects all high-wear areas of the palm to make them last longer.
    • Change the shell material to one that is more breathable, improving versatility.
    • Add more insulation that breathes better to make the gloves warmer.
    • Switch to materials that stretch and break-in for better fit and dexterity.
    • Lower the price by selling direct online.

Great gloves and mittens!

Four years ago, I bought a pair of Free the Powder gloves as "factory seconds." They were a bargain, and were so warm and comfortable that I bought two pairs of the mittens almost as soon as they were available. I ski a lot, especially on storm days, and these mittens have kept my hands warm with a light glove liner even in sub-zero temperatures while exposed to the wind. They have also held up very well over the last two seasons--they are a bit softer, but show little wear. The removable liners are great, I never find them damp the next day if I take them out to air out overnight.

Great Gloves, Amazing Service

I have purchased various pairs for myself and family of SX Gloves, SX Mittens, and a pair of Spring Gloves. All have been great. I recently had a potential issue with my son's mittens. Nothing ended up being wrong with the mittens, but Free the Powder went way above and beyond in making sure the issue for my son was resolved. Great service from an amazing company. With a whole family of skiers/boarders I will keep buying gloves from Free the Powder.

Best gloves

These are the best gloves I've ever worn. I particularly like the ability to remove the insulator inner glove and put it on a boot dryer. Two thumbs up! You will not be disappointed.

RX Glove

Great glove, looks new after a season of use. Warm, supple and bomber. I just ordered the RX3 for stupid cold days.

Size Guide

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.
