We wax our products at Give’r HQ by hand. We use Sno Seal for our wax product and each pair is put on and waxed and then put in the oven to seal.
What is the difference between waxed and not waxed gloves/mittens?
Wax coating provides additional leather protection, but is not the waterproof element. Leather will show water absorption, the waterproof membrane protects from external moisture (waterproof membrane can only be found in 4 Season Gloves, Frontier Mittens, and Children's Mittens).
What products are waxed?
Our Classic Give’r Gloves are ALWAYS waxed
- Products with optional wax coating:
- 4-Season Gloves
- Frontier Mittens
- Children’s Mittens
Lightweight Gloves aren’t waxed, why?
We don’t wax the Lightweights, mainly because they will not see as much winter weather as the other 3 styles. Most people use our Lightweights in the warmer months for gardening, construction, horseback riding, etc. You are welcome to wax the gloves yourself!
