Why would that be? The only gloves I have that keep on going for years are leather.

cabelas gloves last, I've bought heeps of deerskin ones over the years. You just can't wear them in wet conditions, like storms. That's where an all-leather gloves turns into a sponge. Gore tex or not, beeswax or not, silicone or not. Leather = sponge.

I've used Wells Lamont from 7-Eleven. They're fine for skiing.

Leather will absorb water eventually. On the other hand, synthetic gloves will get soaked through too. If you don't fall a lot or ski in the rain, it doesn't matter, but I find drenched nylon/gortex gloves less unpleasant than drenched leather. I think they hold less water. As to durability, I prefer tuff-grip on the palm and fingers. It doesn't absorb water and it grips poles better and very durable.

I developed a preference for synthetic gloves riding bicycle in all weather, but for skiing in good weather, leather is fine. Sorry for expressing my prejudice.

Its cool, I can see why people wouldn't like leather and/or have a problem with the ethics of the thing. I think you are right that if I'm going to get real wet I'd prefer something else. Drenched leather is definitely not the most comfortable thing.

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

: PETA Person? Leather has long been my prefered material for ski gloves.

Uh, the Wells Lamonts are tan leather work gloves. I used tan leather gloves, those are the ones I used and where I got them. I enjoyed wearing the gloves for skiing and other leisure activities. Go peddle your agenda in the Politics and Hot Topics forum.

You sound kinda angry. Maybe you should consider going vegan. All that red meat tends to make people overly aggressive.

In Mammoth it started about 5 years ago. I remember it very distinctlly, on my first trip at the start of season, I went for a little apres ski it seemed like every instructor was wearing them-almost like they had been issued them. Hardly remembered seeing any the previous spring. Just shows how little it takes to start a fad.

You be tripping. I think I used them for driving my car. I don't remember. Quit riding me. It was a long time ago. Take it to Politics and Hot Topics, sicko.
post #47 of 58
Let's not overlook the fact that I advocate for the use of leather ski boots, while you are tarring me.

Just say choppin' firewood. That works. And it makes up for manli-ness lost bein' a fruit booter.

(by the way, remember, I tele a little too)

And as far as a political agenda, you should ask the poor little cow that turned into my tri tip to bbq tonight.
Oh, and the deer that turned into my ski/work/um, choppin' wood gloves.

Now it's about rollerblading!? Or is it my sexual orientation? Fruit booter? Why don't you slander my race and religion while you're at it. I will not flag your post, but I'd be surprised if you don't hear from the site moderators.

what race and religion are you?

Have you checked out the powder thread. I'm surprised I haven't heard from them already! :

When are you coming to tahoe for some real skiing, we should go riding.

Isn't wool an animal product?

I use wool liners under my leather mitts. Win/win. I do, however, disagree with your statement about leather being poor for ski gloves. I've had the opposite experience.

He's in Maryland. The 'ahem (it is epic after all), ramen? noodles? suck there.

Anyways, telerod, we're pretty close to humboldt. If'n' you ever want to bring your knee droppin' knuckle draggin' butt out to Tahoe. It's pretty sunny after the 5 foot dump. You can wear your car drivin' gloves.

I love my leather gloves, thin liner...great grip and WARM. But my hands are generally warm. Tractor supply....deer skin. 7 bucks. 3 seasons and I finally lost a thumb seam.

No. There are fads that resemble that, sure, including recurring ones. Recurring and around for years: Yo-yos. OTOH, Rubik's Cube was introduced at Western toy shows in 1980 and sold over a hundred million units through 1982.
