POW stands for Prisoner of Winter and that is because these guys have been taken
captive by the epic elements and landscapes that make those colder months their
favorite season of the year. In order to flourish during the winter, you need
gloves that are going to fuel your adventures and passions. POW gloves are crafted
with fabrics that ooze coziness and have the grit to withstand a wide variety
Materializing from the deep powder stashes of the mountains in the Pacific Northwest,
the idea for the POW brand first emerged on a road trip to Stevens Pass ski resort
in Washington in 1997. Later, in 2002, Dustin Goss founded the company and quickly
began developing function-focused gloves. Originally Dustin tested sales and marketability
out of the trunk of his car in resort parking lots across the NW. By 2008 POW
was distributing in 30+ countries across the world and driving a brand culture
that resonates into tomorrow.
Committing to the use of only premium leather to max out dexterity and amp up
durability makes the POW Leather Collection a true force with which to combat
nature’s most fierce elements. POW has chosen to use locally sourced goat
and deer hide in order to be more environmentally friendly since cows have a much
larger carbon footprint. Packed with a super durable Gore-Tex insert, a glorious
micro-fleece lining, and all the waterproofing and durability your paws can handle,
the POW Stealth Glove GTX leads a pack of some pretty epic pieces of hand wear.
The Women’s Collection has been specifically designed to cater towards the
unique and specific shapes and features of feminine hands. Peak performance in
more than just a pretty package is the goal when POW tailors fit, features, and
purposeful qualities into gloves like the Women’s Feva GTX Glove. A highly
durable Gore-Tex insert, micro-fleece lining, premium waterproof goatskin leather,
3M Thinsulate insulation, and an Ultra Magic closure system make the Women’s
Feva almost too hot to handle.
POW takes functional hand wear to another level with gloves in their Utility Collection.
This line incorporates bold ideas that let you multitask while doing your thing
outdoors. Utility focused shells and techy liners have been developed specifically
for those who find themselves outside year-round. The POW Photog Glove is a prime
example with its convertible fingers that allow for easy touch screen camera or
phone operation. Stocked with a backhand zip pocket and a neoprene cuff, this
hand-hugger is just one of the many reasons POW is a leader of the industry.
Born from a love of involvement in the outdoors, POW has firmly grasped the concept
of creating no-nonsense gloves. Function-focused and inspired by innovation, these
hunks of hand wear are essential for those taken prisoner by winter.
