Better than duct tape -- a digital contest

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 



At SIA we met the inventor and owner of the company that makes these leather finger patches for outdoor gloves, the One Up Company of Scottsdale, AZ, whose motto is "Patch. Prevent. Personalize."


The product is called Just the Tip. From the company description:


"Just the tip is a protective covering that easily slides over the fingers of your gloves, preventing or repairing the wear and tear of a gnarly winter. Plus, they're customizable, so you can add a little flair of your own."


Here's some more EpicSki flair on the most deserving gloves in our house--though they would look better on leather:



We'd like to pass these two finger tip repair kits on to two more deserving pairs of gloves. Please post your photos in this thread to be considered for the 2-finger or 3-finger kit. I'll PM the winners for shipping info.

I just figured out recently that I wear the 1st two fingers of my gloves out unbuckling my boots every run. I have a very low volume foot and have to have my boot very tight while skiing but not while riding. Let me know if these work. I am definitely a candidate for this before I wear out my pair of  SWANY leather gloves. The duct tape on my Smartwools and Scotts doesn't work very well(also my old hotfingers.

I only have enough kits for five fingers. Alas, those gloves look like old friends.

That looks like somebody rides a rope tow? I hate to think of all the nice gloves I've ruined in the past riding ropesfrown.gif

This is quite possibly one of the most ridiculous things I have ever seen.

Skiing has spawned many inventions. We like to bring the outliers to your attention too. wink.gif


Here's a video from the company to show you how this works. Our photo shows the finger tips sitting on top of a cloth glove--the proper application would be glued on a leather glove. It's actually quite an economical way to revive a pair of expensive gloves.
