Booting up a coolie? Traversing a windy ridge? Out ahead of the group doing the dirty work and kicking in a new skin track? A ton of insulation isn't always necessary, but protection from wind, spindrift, and of course the occasional flurry is key. The TOUR offers just enough barrier from the elements to keep the digits comfortable, while allowing you to work hard without overheating.
I’ve been using only Truck gloves at my ski patrol job for years because of the quality and fit. I needed new touring gloves so I went with Truck and got my usual size but in this glove the fingers are too long which has never been an issue with my M1 ski gloves
These are a solid touring glove option at a great price point. I chose to give them 4 stars for a couple of minor design features I do not care for. These are not a matter of quality but my particular taste. First the shell material is a canvas wind stopper material that I felt was stiff and less comfortable than other materials in a similar category. Second the cuff of the glove extends about an inch further back up the arm than other gloves I have owned in a similar category. In one sense this is nice for the added protection but the slim cuff line means that this cuff does not fit well with my sports watch as it extends to the point where my watch naturally sits. This is mildly uncomfortable. Overall seems to be a solid product!
Got these for my wife. She skins up PCMR a bunch and these are a great glove for that.
Lighter glove, perfect for skinning up. I have another pair of gloves in the pack for the way down.
I bought a pair of the Tour gloves because I was tired of reaching the top of a skin track with gloves that were soaked through with sweat, making transitions difficult. While I can't say that I've been on a tour yet this early in winter, I have done multiple long runs in temps below freezing wearing the Tour. They are just the right amount of glove to keep my hands warm while moving, but not sweaty. I am pretty stoked to have these in my touring kit. Do make sure you get the leather care product to go with these gloves too. I made the mistake of not doing so for a pair of my favorite Truck bike gloves and will have to replace them earlier than I'd hoped; however, it's really on me for leaving them untreated in the back of my truck all season. I'm pretty much a Truck only glove guy now.

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.
