FLYLOW GEAR work glove review [2012/2013]



flylow tough guy gloves

Over years growing up at the local resort, I always remember seeing the ski patrols wearing leather gloves. Didn’t matter conditions, they all wore leather gloves. And rightfully so. Because they work. Not only do they work, but they last, and they are, well, almost bullet proof.

Flylow has the market cornered here. A truly functional ski glove for only under $30? Actually, on sale right now for less! Flylow’s Tough Guy glove is quickly becoming a “must-have” for the patrol at Crystal Mountain. This mostly-leather work glove is water resistant, and allows the user to perform most any work function necessary to get the job done. Whether that be running bamboo, working a drill all day, or setting up ropes, this glove will be there from opening day, to seasons end for all your work needs.
Not a patroller? Me neither. I have found this glove to work especially well for backcountry tours. It is tough as nails, and will keep your hands plenty warm in most any conditions.

Tech stuff: The glove is basically a leather work glove that has been hand waxed and heat treated by the fella’s at Flylow in a secret process known as “Triple baked Sno-Seal™” waterproofing and 60 gram insulation to keey yer’ fingers warm!

Price point: $20-30
