Yeah I have to agree, I owned a pair of grenade mitts (because they looked good) and they were the shittiest things ever! Advertised as cold temp mitts, my fucking hands were freezing and wet! Now own some Dakine Gore-tex gloves and they are very nice!
I have to say that I absolutely agree with both of you guys. I have bought many many sample gloves in preparation and noticed that the fabrics that grenade use are low quality. For some gloves I paid £60! Definitely it is the branding and marketing that sells. They have got that spot on although they have a shitty product.
I have factored in higher quality fabrics but want to market the brand as strong as Grenade.
