Favorite Feature: “Rugged Tough”Grandpa Carl wrote, “This photo is of my 4 year old granddaughter taken by my son in law; He moves heavy equipment with a semi tractor trailer lowboy. She rode with him and was helping unload by operating the hydraulic levers, the picture is completely unstaged. My first thought was “Kinco gloves… Made for the next generation of the American work force!” What better face than a 4 year old girl operating a semi tractor trailer lowboy.”

Title: “Product Review: 2005W”
Product: #2005W Women’s Green Synthetic Leather Gloves“I just wanted to let you know how great this product is. I work in a shipping and receiving department. I pack boxes, pallets, use metal banding and putt a varied assortment of parts away. I have tried two other different brands of gloves before I found these. This pair of gloves has by far out performed the other gloves. I purchased my first pair in April or June 2014. The are very dirty, but no holes or rips or seams pulling apart, all things I happened to the other gloves I have used.

Again, I just wanted to let you know how well I feel this glove has been made. THANKS!”

I’ve worn the high wrist non-elastic striped utility glove (with heat keep) on the slopes and couldn’t imagine anything better. Then you introduced the Ski Glove and I’m flushed with love all over again. Just in time too. It is closing in on Valentines day.

Title: “Kinco Ski Gloves from Crested Butted Mountain Resort [Review]”
Product: #901 Ski Glove“At $28, this is a glove that handles the ski poles and shovel just as well as it handles a chainsaw and axe. Tyson even used the gloves to change the oil on his snowmobile.These gloves don’t care how you abuse them; they’re like a dog that craves adventure, no matter how many people think it’s torture.The Kinco ski glove is a favorite of ski resort workers. Tyson makes snow at Crested Butte ski resort and has abused them plenty. I’ve used them backcountry skiing, at the resort, and bucking and splitting wood.”
