PSA Head gloves $13.99 @ Costco

post #1 of 12

Just letting you all know Costco has once again begun to sell Head ski/boarding gloves for only $13.99. The gloves look great and are well made they had 2 different styles that I saw. Anywhere else these gloves would be at least $50. Go get'em

I bought 2 pair last year. Both pair fell apart. I was not impressed by the quality, or there lack of.

I have used the Costco head gloves for several seasons, and they are pretty good, especially if you find yourself making a lot of quick changes during the day, as an isntructor does. On a rainy day it is great to have several pairs in your bag, and I often find that I have left one or more as I run from place to place. I have had very few wear out on me, but I have cut many on ske edges. I let my kids borrow mine, so it is never quite clear who lost what, but I definitely find that using the less expensive gloves makes a season of teaching more reasonable. I do carry a couple of pairs of Swany's, but, I only use them at PSIA events and such, because I have much more contorol over my stuff.

Good edges!

Even my most expensive gloves ($120) have a slash thanks to my edges.

Im surprised, I would imagine this year's gloves are different than last, dont know if its any better, but it seemed to be well built, with different materials used for the different surfaces, even a soft goggle wipe.

I have 3 gloves already so I wont be buying a pair, but at $13.99 its a good deal even if you use it for only one season.

I agree, but we got less than a month out of these.

My experience does not jibe with Phil's. I've used the Costco Heads as my mainstay gloves for the past two seasons, using them probably 60-70 days of the 80-90 skied. The only thing I've had fail is the clip ring. I bought a backup pair in case, and haven't broken them out.

That said, Phil, you really should bring them back to Costco based on that experience.

And further PSA: Costco inevitably puts these on sale for a week or two during the fall, so the price drops another couple of bucks. When you're buying a few, it adds up.

I've been using Head gloves from Costco for over 7 seasons. I've had a couple duds that Costco replaced but considering I've bought over 30 pair for myself, children, friends, etc. I can't complain. They are better than gloves the big sporting good chains put on sale this time of year for $30 to $45.

Every year around this time there's a thread about the $12 Costco ski glove. This year the price is up to $13.

I also tried them. Two seasons ago a fellow from BC said on here he used them the prior season in sub-zero temps and his hands stayed nice and warm the whole day. That sounded good enough, so I bought some. I think over three or four trips to Costco, I got a pair almost each time. And at the time they had a $3 off coupon, so the price was in the single digits. Too good to pass up.

But I'm seen what Phil says, one pair lasted three days on the hill before the stitching at the seam, between the fingers and the palm, started separating. The hole got big enough that I can see an inner white liner, which is what makes these waterproof (still have two pair in the original packaging, 'guaranteed waterproof' it says).

They are thick and lofty, easy to put on and take off, with nice unobtrusive wrist straps so you don't drop them off a lift. All in all, for $12 (less if you get a coupon), it's hard to complain, even if the stitching does tear. I can see how for a large family these are a huge bargain.

I'm glad you said that. I'm not sure but I think Phil could benefit from the Costco Return policy.
