I grew up in Michigan shoveling snow for what seemed like hours a day so I appreciate a good pair of gloves when I see em and these are the best! I am a snowboarder and started off last season with some Burton AK's that were like wearing paper bags so I bought the POW gloves and they saved my season. They run a little small but the more you wear them the better they get. Soft and plyable but very warm and DRY!!
