Yes, we built them for skiing, but these gloves do way more than that.
In a normal year, now would be the time for late-spring ski touring missions in the high peaks. Of course, this is not a normal year. Maybe you're still out ski touring and need a pair of lightweight spring gloves. Or instead, maybe you're gardening in the backyard, building a treehouse for your kids, or doing some other home improvement project that may require gloves. A reliable leather work glove does all of that—skiing and home projects.
Powder Magazine recently reviewed our classic, well-loved Tough Guy Glove as part of a roundup of the season's best spring skiing gloves. Here's what Powder writer Erme Catino had to say about the Flylow Tough Guy Glove:
"This glove is ideal for everyday skiing at the resort as well as touring. And though they’re not designed explicitly for spring, the Tough Guy glove from Flylow is such a workhouse that not having a pair in your pack while on a corn skiing mission just seems silly. It’s mid-May and just last weekend I was hanging atop a line with these on, as I waited for the snow to soften. The pigskin leather is impeccably treated with SnoSeal water repellant and has Spaceloft micropuff insulation to keep you warm. When the temperature ticks up, the fabric backing on the glove allows it to breathe rather than feel clammy, and they insulate a cold beer on your palm at the end of the day. At just over 20 bucks, you’d be hard-pressed to find a better utility glove."
