POW High-5 Glove Review
Sunshine, 50-degrees and corn snow – perfect springtime shred weather. Or if you happen across a serious ‘January Thaw’ like we’re use to in the Midwest, that works too.
These are the days when you don’t need a big, bulky winter glove, but a little protection from the wind and the gnar would help. Enter POW Glove’s High-5. A lightweight glove, often referred to by many as a ‘park glove’.
The High-5’s feature a thin, lightweight construction that is extremely flexible and formfitting to your hand. First impressions reminded us of gloves worn by mechanics. Throw a pair on, grab a ski pole or your board and you will realize the sweet epoxy/silicon coated palm is more function than form. You can grip whatever you want and not worry about losing it.
The POW High-5 glove and mitt have a waterproof palm and breathable backside.
Materials: Corded Nylon & Neoprene
Palm: Water resistant Clarino & epoxy/silicon printed High-5
Clarino is a synthetic leather POW uses on the thumb and fingertips of their gloves. It’s wind, water, stain and mildew resistant.
Cuff: Secured with Hook & Loop (velcro)
Comfortable and stylie glove that’s great for spring conditions and perfect for those days when you don’t want gloves on at all. The epoxy/silicon palm is excellent at gripping a ski pole or carrying your gear. Sizes run fairly true to typical glove sizes. If you wear a medium, you’ll wear a medium.
Back is very breathable, as it’s designed to be. Remember – it’s a lightweight, warmer weather glove, not your blowing 40 and minus-15 glove. If you snag a pair that are white (ours white/black) the white was pretty much discolored after the first day.
