Outstanding durability is the stock in trade of these puppies.

The SPG glove addresses the hand care needs of ski patrollers, Alaskan ice climbers, Antarctic scientists, and maybe even you - assuming you are looking for a wear resistant, warm, maintainable solution for work and play in cold conditions.

With high quality leather and strategic palm reinforcing, good dexterity, and a cuff that really works, these beauties will keep your hands happy for a long time. For best results - waterproof with our natural Waterwax treatment.

 

  • Lined with low absorption synthetic fleece, to keep your hands toasty
  • A full C-600 snow cuff to keep the white stuff out, with both a cinch strap and a draw cord
  • Cunning thumb seam design to protect this high wear area
  • SPG's can be re-proofed with a good boot wax like our Cactus Waterwax. It's important to note that as SPG's are made of a natural material (cowhide) slight surface imperfections and variances in size may occur - this is all part of the fun and beauty of natural fabrics and is something to be applauded rather than denigrated

Got these gloves for a winter trip to Iceland and after spending 4 months my hands have never been cold once. Coldest it has got so far is only -10C (for a week!) however wind chill is a serious factor here in Iceland without any trees and these gloves have never failed me in the wet or cold under constant everyday use. Get some kiwi boot polish and you can keep them looking and working like new. Can't speak highly enough, really can't

8f (-13c) here in Asheville NC. The dexterity and fantastic quality of the SPG never fail to amaze me. I can fish keys, tune the radio, etc. Skiing? They are they keep my hands warm. Motorcycling at sub freezing temps? If I ever wear these out, I will buy another set. Absolutely the best cool weather gloves I have ever owned.

Worked in Jackson Hole for the winter; early morning -30 degree starts, heavy, difficult work with machinery- spg gloves with a poly-prop liner got me through the whole 6 months of winter and still look great, while everyone else's gloves fell apart.

Antarctica, the coldest place on earth. Its minus 35 degrees, we are riding on the sea ice and a fellow expeditioners handle grip warmers on his Skidoo have failed. his hands are frozen.I give him my machine as with these gloves + a poly pro liner I dont use my warmers.These gloves are the duck nuts.

These gloves go everywhere! Typically used by my partner for his sea ice research in the northernmost point of Alaska in -40C temps, I took these ice climbing yesterday. They are super warm and durable, allowing me to have enough dexterity to place ice screws calmly. They've been re-proofed numerous times, and while my climbing buddies were literally wringing their gloves out, i climbed and belayed warm and dry all day. Awesome quality and *amazing* price!
