winter ridding much more pleasurable when fingers are not turning to frozen sticks
Glove is out preforming any other non electric heated gloves that I have purchased They have proven to be a nice balance between bulk and warmth and they are just starting to break in
Side note: I have tried a few makes of electric gloves which were either way to bulky or to small (even though they are advertised as ex large) which made them unusable for what I needed
Gauntlets are tight over insulated jacket sleeves, not as open and men’s gloves from five years back.
Fingers are tight, hard to push fully on - assuming pack-in will improve the fit.
Overall great design and workmanship.
Comments. Based on first use
Thanks for the feedback, Craig!
So I patterned the cuff opening to be right in line with other similar models out there. BD/Hestra/etc all have guantlet gloves and generally speaking we all pattern the cuffs to be approximately similar. So i'm curious how 'insulated' your jacket may be. There are of course thousands of jacket styles and insulation build-ups. So I dont doubt at all that some big/puffy/uber insulated jackets may have super thick cuffs that make the interface with gloves somewhat challenged. But my design isn't especially 'narrow'. So that would lead me to believe that the very specific jacket your'e basing your review on is a pretty large, thick one? Can you share a photo? This is of interest to me because you may have noticed i actually offer specific videos on some of the product pages that show clearly how the glove cuff designs interface with various jackets. YOu can see an example here:
(you'll notice that the third example in this video addresses the super puffy style jackets that can be tough for lots of gloves to fit over)
I'd love to hear how your second and third excursions go per the fit of the gloves. Let me know! For folks with larger diameter fingers, there can be a day or two breakin period before they start to 'fit like a glove'. I'm all ears per further feedback....
He said his hands and fingers are so warm. We skied in 20 degree Utah snowy storm weather and he was a happy guy on the chairlift! He said they fit well and got on/off great. He wants another pair!
I have been a Truck glove user for many years now. I am a Ski Instructor and use them daily! They are top notch on warmth, dexterity, and durability. I still use my old gloves from like 8 years ago for shoveling snow and working in the yard. They are still in great shape!
Our weather has been unseasonably warm so I have only used them once. They are a bit stiff, but I anticipate they will soften and mold to my hands with more use. No concerns at this time, I really like the gloves but need more use to give a more meaningful and accurate review.

DISTINCTIVE GLOVES/DISRUPTIVE PRICES
For five years I have traveled from coast to coast introducing TRUCK to the operational groups at nearly every ski resort from Maine to Washington. The goal was to build a glove that met the varied needs of the patrollers, lifties, snowmakers, and ski instructors who demand a quality product as well as one they can actually afford. And if we could do that, well, then we knew we had something good to offer.
Today we have a faithful following of resort employees who swear by the quality and costs we offer.
