    I am not trying to change anybodies opinion ...

    And at the same time I am not open to change my opinion ...

    All I am saying is that ... Free the Powder gloves failed at first use ...!

    People can buy whatever they want, I know that I am not buying product that fails at first use.

    Another +1 for FTP. Love mine, they have removable liners, maybe 3rd season on them? Never had an issue putting them on, in fact I had to go check as I didn't even realize I had removable liners! Now I know, sweet:
    But, maybe my hands run cold because when it gets below say 20, I go to the old standby, almost 20 yo REI goretex primaloft mittens with Mountain Hardware liners:
    Finally if its warm, springy, can't even remember where I found these:
    I've yet to treat the leather on the FTPs as they've not shown the need, probably will end of this season.

    dang @Goran M. that's got to be the exception and should be replaced with zero questions asked by FTP. Bummer. Understand your comments, that's BS.

    Fixed my (very personal, only affecting me it seems) liner problem!

    I bought some velcro strips that are meant to be applied permanently to fabric. My liners now stay put when I work my hand in. :)

    I'm in between sizes (S/M) and I'm looking at the RX glove. Should I size up or down?

    Up, definitely. They'll start a little snug even then, but break in really well. My hand measures right between M and L, and I've gone L and find them to fit well.

    agree, size up. Don't go too small, you won't be able to close your fingers and make a fist or grip and they will be unusable. The only use for too small gloves is if you remove the insulating liner and use your own base liners; and treat it more like gardening or work gloves(or kincos).

    After closer look - it appears that the stitching is not sufficient ... bad design ...

    I sent them email, will see what happens ...
