Tan Leather Gloves

post #1 of 58
Thread Starter 
I was on a high-school ski team a few years ago and a few people on my team had these like tan leather gloves that sorta look like construction gloves. I tryed them on and they were amazing, its been a few years now and I don't remember what kind they were.

Anyone out there know what these are? please help. thank you

don't forget about cabellas. Insulated Goretex deerhide workgloves for 30bucks is pretty hard to beat.

Don't forget about Wal-Mart.

I've used regular old leather construction gloves for years. They work best for non-snowing and semi-warm days, but we have a lot of those days during a normal season.

I really like the feel and the price (about $10). I just goop 'em up with Sno-Seal several times during the season and they stay pretty waterproof.

Here's me with a pair at the top of Glory Peak at Teton Pass:



Cheap, comfortable, and warm enough for most days.

Sometimes I'll break them out on mild days too: http://www.dcski.com/articles/view_a...47&mode=search
What can I say, they're cheap and the kind with fleece lining are comfy.

Basically what the kincos are. They run about 14 dollars for the lined leather w/cuff. I can get 100 days of work out of them. Good down to about 15-20 degrees. I've got a funny story about sno-seal, sticky gloves and a hand charge thrown short on a control day

That conjures up some interesting images.

I noticed a few of my kids friends on the race circuit using deer skin gloves for free skiing.

A bit pricey for real deer skin .... I thought they were just supporting the local industry and were a bit of a fashion statement ... combined with teen "macho" .... "gloves, we don't need no insulated gloves" ...

Like they bragged about skiing in hoodies all winter .... left the jackets behind.

Oh no!

I sometimes wear an old pair of tan work gloves to ski in. I usually have a pair in my car.

But by posting this topic up, we may have just jinxed ourselves. Gapers might catch on and make tan work gloves the trendy thing to have.

I use the insulated deer skin gloves and when its really cold a pair of deer skin thinsulate mittens. (I ski in the Cdn Rockies)
They are the best gloves I have ever worn and will never go back to expensive $50+ gloves.
you can get them at a ranch supply/farm store for under $20... They will last all season, incredibly warm and not too bulky.

Second the Kinco lined work gloves for +20 degrees and dry. Call it an anti-gaper statement.

Its the new ski glove trend started a year or two ago, basically all the manufacturers have natural colored gloves now. They are marketed to instructors and others that work on the mountain. I see boarders using them.

Year or two ago? Lot longer than that...

Those gloves - yes! Last year at Butternut Basin I saw a whole bunch of folks skiing with those gloves on! In addition, they were also wearing these very unusual looking hats which they said were very, very, very breathable:




At the end of the day they all got onto a big pink bus just like this one here. In fact, I'm pretty sure these are the same people:




I think they were some kind of ski team from Key West or something.

Were they headed to Sayville to catch the ferry for the Grove?

Could be. There is reputed to be a Cherry Grove to Butternut ferry-bus. But thankfully, my eyes have not let me see it.

The best ski mitts I have ever had are a pair of Wells Lamont leather choopers with the shearling lining and a pair of wool liners. My hands never get cold, they're durable as HELL, and if they get trashed (although I've owned the same pair for 10-15 years...), it's only about $20 to replace them. Can't beat that. I plan on doing something along those lines in a pair of gloves this year. I'll go to Mills Fleet Farm or something like that.

Or just wath for closeouts on the "usual suspect" websites... Those gloves from Cabela's that look like the Marmot work gloves - I wonder how they'll hold up? But you can get 3 pair of those for the price of one set of Marmots...

I've heard they are pretty decent, and like I said, you could go through 3 pairs of those and still be money ahead of the Marmots. Cabela's makes good gear. I'll probably end up getting some and they are EXACTLY what I'm looking for, but with a reasonable price. Here they are: http://www.cabelas.com/cabelas/en/te...369&hasJS=true

Wells Lamont - yep...

Leather is a very poor material to use in the construction of ski gloves. If you want to make a fashion statement, try wool mittens.


Leather is good stuff to make ski boots from, if you feel a strong desire to use animal products on the hill.
