Default POW Glove Fail

Got a pair of POW Zerow gloves, after 1 day of riding, 6 hours the seams failed in 3 spots. I emailed POW directly and they said it must be a problem in the production line and to contact whoever I bought them from. Hmmm.. Anyhow, I got them from Level Nine Sports in SLC - I emailed them and they called me next morning, cross shipped a new pair and gave me a return tag for the old pair - thought that was cool..

Three years ago I got a pair of Pow Sonic gloves... after about 5-6 of riding the seam on side the ring finger on my left glove came apart (which is odd since that part wouldn't really touch the snow if I was dragging it, nor while I'm holding the board). Even th - they weren't very waterproof when the seams were closed and they felt kind of puffy bulky. ... returned them to backcountry.com and got a pair of Dakine Bronco GT gloves with gore-tex inserts, particularly flashy, but I'm not the one to care... I'm still using them today!

I have some 4 year old dakine scouts that are awesome and in good shape still. I mainly use some year old level fly gloves with the guards, probably 30 days on them so far... Like brand new still. My wife just got me some celtek trigger mitts that seem nice, have used them 3 days, great for days over 25 degrees....

Have had pow gloves, mitts, park high five mitt, no issues. Bombproof even. Fit is strange on the gloves. Short fingers, long hands...strange

I've got a pair of pow tanto's, im not overly impressed with them.

They fit weird and the waterproofing they provided blows cunks. My hands get fucking soaked.

Have a pair of pow high fives that lasted a whopping 5 days before they were torn to hell.

burton impact gloves - tough and they help reduce risk of wrist injury - pretty warm but not great, add a light underglove layer and super warm

does this mean something other then just putting nikwax or some other waterproofing paste on it?
