Your thoughts on POW gloves

Hi,

Am looking to buy some POW Tanto and Stealth gloves. Anyone think that that is a bad idea? Can't find very many snowboarder's reviews on them

Cheers

If it's a real goose, is it propaganda?

I've had a pair of Pow Mega for a couple of years. They've done about 5 weeks mountain time and a lot of hours in the UK Manchester fridge. They've kept me comfy from -1C down to -20C and don't show any visible signs of wear. The size seems a little small so be sure to try on before you buy.

Pow gloves are good in my experience, haven't had any issues with my POW high fives

Rode in the stealths for 1 and a half seasons. Only had to re-proof them once. oh and that's half a season longer than anything else I've used aside form Celtek.

Snowboarding Is...

That thing I do to escape the world and have fun with my friends

Did your Celteks blow out after 3 days on them?

Size seems small....... As in, go a size up from what they recommend?? Don't think I'll be able to try them as I live nowhere near the store. I fit right in the middle of large on their sizing chart. Are they similarly small like Burton where in everything else I am a large and in Burton I am an XL. You couldn't do me a massive favour and measure round the widest part of your hand(near the knuckles) and tell me what sizes you have and should have etc could you pretty please?!?!?! xxxxxx (....gay)

I'm sat at work without a measuring tape, or even a ruler, sorry.
I went for a medium as that usually works for me with most brands but could have used a large, that said it's not uncomfortable, just a little snug with the liners in. If you're middle of the large range you'll probably be OK.

Just found this link:

http://www.powgloves.com/size-chart.html

So POW reckon if you're 8.5 - 9" you're L and 9.5 - 10" XL.
