42 Absurd and Fun Ways We Tested the 4-Season Gloves

4-Season Give'r Leather Gloves Testing

We knew making the best damn leather gloves ever would be a tall order, requiring lots of testing and refinement. We spent almost two years on the task. During that time, we used our 4-Season Give’r Glove prototypes in 42 different situations ... some absurd, some practical and most of them fun! The final glove we created excels at each one of these 42 tasks, and we're excited to keep on testing. How will you Give'r in your 4-Season Gloves?
