Thankfully your gloves/mittens are already rockin’ when you take them out of the box, just start putting them to work! If you ordered waxed gloves, no need to wax them yourself. Our team at Give’r HQ waxed them by hand, for you! When the leather begins to break down/feel rough, or you’ve worn them for a ski season already, adding some more wax to them over time will help protect the leather and keep your gloves/mitts working well into the future. Check out how to re-wax your pair here!
Now for breaking em' in!
For insulated gloves/mitts, they do require a bit of a break-in period, but we promise this time and love will give you a final result you'll be stoked on. This may require using them for a few hours at a time to help coat the leather to mold to the natural shape of your hand position. The insulation will pack out and begin to fully fill the leather outer shell. The leather itself will begin to break in and form to your individual hands. The more they are used, the better they will fit as they become an extension of your hand and fingers!
To expedite the break-in process, try The Oven Method.
**Make sure you do not leave your gloves/mittens in the oven longer than the recommended 4 minutes. Give’r is not accountable for gloves/mittens that are forgotten or were not properly placed in the oven - leading to damage.**
