Signs That "It Won't Be Long Now" — New Gloves

We still have more than two months to cool our heels, but seeing the big box of $14 Head ski gloves at Costco today got me psyched for the upcoming season.

I left my most recent pair at Plattekill last February, and didn't make it back to check the lost and found, so it was time for the 2010 version.

New gloves and a December warm-up trip already penciled in. I'm ready.

I know you got yours, but FYI for others....

Cabela's Pinnacle Glove. Same as the Marmot glove the local ski shop sells for $180, sometimes more.

The black and tan Pinnacle seems to be stuffed a little fatter than the greys. Both are very excellent, 400 reviews and still a 4.5 rating out of 5 ! We've bought them as low as $40 men's and $30 dollars ladies depending on the time.

X2 for the Cabelas. AAA Benny rating, but, only for cold. No removable liners.

HR Isotoner Test Drive

Got this in the HR mailbox today. Seems like they must have found this thread by Googling. I'm not kidding myself by thinking HR is actually on ISOTONER's radar:

Harvey,
 
My name is Rachael, and I work with totes-ISOTONER (you probably know them as the world's largest marketer of umbrellas, gloves, slippers and other weather-related accessories). We are big fans of Harvey Road and would like to invite you to try our new smarTouch™ gloves and experience using touch screen devices (mobile phones, mp3 players, GPS devices, etc.) in the cold winter months like never before.
 
Until now, trying to use touch screen devices in frigid weather meant having to remove your gloves…but not anymore!  The smarTouch gloves feature a conductive thread that is embroidered on each glove’s index finger and thumb. The thread conveys an electrical impulse from the fingers to any touch screen device. A non-slip palm design improves grip, while ISOTONER’s signature stretch materials provide superior fit and flexibility.

We like to think totes-ISOTONER is known for fashion and function – now we’re adding technology to the mix to give people style, comfort, productivity and connectivity.
 
We know Harvey Road is a resource for readers looking for the latest information on all things snow skiing in New York, so we’d love to send you a pair to try. We do have limited product right now in advance of the launch (they’ll be in stores in October), so if you want to try a pair, let us know as soon as you can.
 
If you can include in your response your mailing address and your glove size (men’s – medium or large), we’ll send you a pair of the gloves, as well as some info on where people can buy the gloves, how much they cost and details on a sweepstakes in which we’re giving away gloves and an Apple iPad®.
 
Hope to hear from you soon!
 
Rachael


I'll probably give it a shot.

hehehe. Seems I recall someone saying yuz were getting famous Mr. 44!

Now, you got Girls asking about your, uhm.........size.

No probably about it..... Do a test of them...It's the cool and fun thing to do. Many of your readers no doubt have the glove vs device issue. They will wanna know how well those gloves work. Could be a good thing for them. Yuz might even get mo' publicity from it yuzself.

Oh yeah, manys the time I Google something about the North Country and your Bloggy self pops up on the first page. Is that a sign you've made it?

Glad JD started a Glove thread.

Maybe someone will want you to test Tele Skis next.... Ski boots....Vehicles.....Merlot.....Cookies.....Bedtime stories

That would be Jason, our resident meteorologist rockstar hero.

Truth is I'm a mitten guy.  I see absolutely no advantage in gloves for skiing.

If there is anyone who uses a smart phone and has the desire to trade these hightech gloves for a review of this product let me know.

Re: HR Isotoner Test Drive

No advantage in Gloves?
How about picking up gear
Zipping or unzipping your coat or pockets
Getting into your pack
Adjusting boot buckles

all easier with gloves
