Glove Review: 08-09 POW Mustacheo
A nice stash comes in handy when tracking cougars, posing for photos and of course buying beer when you forgot your ID. Choose the best one for the job at hand.
Intended Purpose: This is a spring weather glove. It is meant for temperates from 25 degrees Fahrenheit to 100 Degrees Fahrenheit.
Sizing: I have typical women's hands. I'm currently sporting the men's medium in the Mustacheo's which fit, but are a little loose in spots. The Mustacheo fit lets it expand to hands, but does not have a way to tighten it like velcro...so getting a close size is necessary.....
Features: With the Mustacheo gloves, you get two stashes to use depending which index finger you put up: One is the straight line and the other features a curled stashe.
Durability: The mustacheo features a variety of materials, the shell is stretch corded nylon and the palm is silicon printed grip clarino. I like the soft material from the base of the glove to the thumb, allowing for those wipe your nose moments on the mountain. The palm is a mixture of hard and soft but lets you grip things well. I had no problem holding one glove on the chairlift feeling confident I wouldn't lose it.
Location: I received the gloves late in May to try out in spring conditions at A-Basin, Colorado. I spent a couple days with the Mustacheo's before switching to another pair of POW gloves.
Conditions: Here is one day I wore the gloves, which was a mixture of sun and clouds. Temperatures varied throughout the day, it was cold enough to wear a jacket (windbreaker) while riding but stayed consistently above 40 degrees from what I can remember.
Thoughts: These are fun gloves, obviously looking at them. I don't really use mine to get cougars since I'm not a lesbian. I guess really the glove limits me on catching guys...but honestly what guy could resist a chick with a sense of humor about stashes. I spent a couple days in the gloves and lent the gloves out to my friend K who had fun with them. Definitely for spring days, it's a fun glove to take out on the snow. If it's super wet out or you touch the snow a lot, you will get your hands wet which leads to cold hands. That's not what the glove is meant for.
I had the gloves get wet after touching a lot of snow, but for taking out the camera to capture pictures on the mountain of the guys riding I didn't encounter any issues with the gloves. My hands kept warm in the varying temperatures of the day and for the most part dry.
