Flylow Tough Guy 2015 Review by A Better Ski
Some folks (Ski Patrollers, and Lifties) love using “work” gloves on the mountain. They’re cheap, tough, dexterous, and with enough DWR, water resistant. The Flylow Tough Guy glove is the skiers’ version of a “work” glove. They are made with durable pigskin leather and then baked with Sno-Seal beeswax to keep out the snow. Now the Flylow Tough guy also has a polyester backer that is definitely not waterproof, so these won’t be a great glove in really wet conditions. But I’ve seen plenty of folks wearing them in Colorado, and if you ski in areas were dry snow is more common, the Floylow Tough Guy might not be a bad option. The Polyester backer also helps to keep them a bit more breathable, but these are not insulated and aren’t super warm. For days that drop into the teens and twenties you’d probably want a warm liner to go underneath. They are surprisingly dexterous for a leather glove, and we generally had no issues with zippers or boot buckles when wearing them. The Flylow Tough Guy is also a great option for those on a budget. At just $30, the Flylow Tough Guy is one of the better deals for a leather glove. Bottom line is if you’re looking for a cheap and tough “work” glove, then the Flylow Tough Guy is a good choice.
Size Worn: L
What I look for in a glove: My hands run really warm, so I like a glove that isn’t too hot! I really love gloves that have removable liners so I can use them together on really cold days, or use just the shell, or just the liner. I also really like to have dexterity when skiing. I don’t necessarily need a glove that allows me to use my phone, or other small electronics, but I definitely want to be able to buckle my boots, zip my jacket, etc…
