    Think you're tough?

    Crested Butte's got a reputation for weeding out the weaklings, but the legendary Flylow Tough Guy Glove isn't scared of a little gnar. The pigskin leather shell's been treated with a SnoSeal water-repellent treatment to keep your hands warm and dry on those snorkel-worthy days, and the dextrous design makes it easy to adjust buckles, work zippers, and flip single-finger gestures of gratitude to the dude stomping up the skin track.

    The Best

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size

    Such a great glove for splitboarding. Mine are abused and ugly but still going strong after 4 years. Great for skinning up on the cold days and they are nimble enough to fiddle around in the pack and transition to ride mode with ease. Takes a beatin and keeps on tickin.

    Just what I needed.

    I needed a glove that was tough and an all around beater. These are priced so reasonably that you just cant go wrong. I have used this glove putting in laps at the resort, scraping the car windows, shoveling the sidewalks, off roading, snowshoeing, and just about everything else.

    This is not the glove to wear when it is ridiculously cold out. But it works perfect down to about 15 degrees. I really like the leather and tough fabric construction. I never have to worry about ripping them or wearing out the fabric.

    Some others have complained of the durability, however I have used them at least 30 times over the past 2 months and haven't seen the slightest wear. I would have said I've put them through the wringer but I don't think I can safely say that considering others have used them for years. I will throw up an update and pictures of them later down the road when they begin to show some wear or fatigue.

    Poor Build Quality

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    I managed to blow out 2 pair of gloves in 1 week. Bought the first pair based on my experience with flylow gear being awesome. First time I wore them, the knuckle seam shredded. Saddened by the loss of the glove and thinking it was a manufacture defect I purchase another pair. I blew those out to in my first outing. Don't buy.

    everyday glove

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I worked bumping chairs for two years wearing these gloves in the frigid Vermont cold. Also for liftserve & skinning. Buy yourself some snowseal from your local hardware store and you've got yourself a solid piece of equipment.

    everyday glove

    Good all arounders when it's not to cold

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I do a bit of skiing with these, but mostly use them as everyday gloves in the winter. Great for shoveling and a little casual XC action, but if the wind and cold is up they aren't warm enough and my finger tips get cold quick.


    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I use these for everything. Work in town, skiing at the resort, hut trips, backcountry day trips blah blah. I ski in Colorado, which isnt too cold. When it does get super cold, I use liners. But basically, I dont use other gloves too much. These gloves work if you work hard. If you are stationary in a cold environment, these arent for you.

    I wear them with shiny liners when its cold (<20). They are deceptively waterproof, haven't had to re-coat them for 2 seasons. Dextrous enough to use GoPros, zippers, and buckles (even the little chest buckle on a Dakine Heli pack).

    I suggest putting duct tape over the thumbs (which I did a little after the photo) to keep wind out of the seam when warping space time like moi. Works like a beaut.

    Also, though it doesn't affect performance, the leather grain on my two gloves is completely different.

    favorite gloves above 0 degrees

    Not the warmest..

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Great for active days, chores, etc. But my fingertips have gotten cold on days in the upper teens. Then again I've had them out around 10F and been fine while XC touring. Not sure I'd take them out on a lift day unless I knew it was about 32f. Need more time to tell. In the meantime, these have become my everyday glove, so maybe I should have given them that 4th star.

    Quality lost?

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    This is a second review of these from years ago. I am pretty disappointed in these this year. These were my go to glove for ski/work. After about two weeks the stitching came apart on the back hand of the glove. After a month I got a hole worn out in the middle finger on the right glove. This hole has slowly worked itself pretty big so far. Don't know if the quality of the run I got was crap or just bad luck but I have been highly praising these gloves for a few years. Not this year though. They are still cheap enough to try again though. I ended up getting the BD Dirt Bag glove and the quality seems to be far and away better.

    Hung with care. These are great. They keep your hands toasty all day even when things get soaking wet. Check it out, the cat approves.

    No thrills here. This glove is a stripped down laborer's glove with added insulation for some warmth and padding. The elastic band keeps the gloves nice and snug. The grip will wear with time but the pigskin is tough and durable. An extra dwr treatment or two from time to time will definitely extend the life of the glove. Waterproof or even resistant not so much, but that's not what these gloves are about. One of my go toos on the groomer from high teens and up.

    Are these insulated? Figured they'd be since they're advertised as ski gloves, but the tech specs don't say they are. Thx
