Kinco leather ski gloves after the huge success of our French ski workers gloves by Venitex we have sourced and imported the Kinco 901 glove.
These gloves are the next stage up from the French Venitex ones, they have reinforced palms, thumb and fingers.
Plus these gloves have a full elasticated cuff, waterproofing with ReviveX® and the added benefit of Kinco's double Heatkeep insulation system.Thatys twice as much insulation as their normal winter gloves.
The Heatkeep system uses polyester fibres and combines layers of nylon baffling and non absorbent polypropylene that wicks water away from your hands. This insulation protects against cold and heat, so much so that Kinco warns consumers to take care because if the glove catches fire you might not feel it!! Wow we better look out on those super fast ski runs or the off piste BBQ session.
These gloves have been used for years, by American ski patrol, guides and instructors as they are super tough and out perform and out last any other ski glove on the market plus you see reports in the US chat forums they people not only use them for skiing, but welding, general work and even the classic lumberjack joke.
We have been using a sample pair and like everything we sell on Snowshepherd would not recommend them unless we thought they were the best value for money glove on the market. Lets see how long our seasonnaire Snowshepherd gets out of them gefore he wears them out?

We will ship upto two pairs of goves to any EU country for our £3.99 UK delivery charge (inc highlands and Islands)
Notes on the leather, when you first get your gloves they will feel a little tough, this soon goes with use, the gloves being 100% natural leather will take up the shape of your hand and soften with use plus streatch a little. The pre treatment with Nikwax glove proof will last for a while, however we recommend topping this up with further Nikwax gloveproof treatments to keep the glove waterproof.
Also as with our French Venitex Leather Ski worker gloves, the Kinco gloves are a work glove style so please remember they are not like a £100 ski glove, but we are pretty sure they will out last any other ski glove and for the price that is probabley why so many skiers in the US use them.
To back this up Snowshepherd are offering a no quibble 1 year warranty on these Kinco gloves, if you wear them out, we will replace them with a new pair. (but please do not set fire to them, we will not count that)
PS Note on the prices when compared with the US, please remember we have to ship them from the States and pay a sports goods import duty on them.
