Find out what’s next for gloves in Skiing Business interview with John Kloser of Swany America

The good folks at Skiing Business conducted a live Facebook chat with John Kloser, Vice President of Sales for Swany America, about the latest in gloves. Here’s a look at the great questions asked by Skiing Business and other Facebook users, along with John’s answers.

Jarl Skibumdad Berg (Facebook user): What is your best choice for spring gloves?

John Kloser: I would recommend our FX-10. This is a light-weight Flexor glove with leather palms and fingers. Flexor has mobile knuckle joints for better dexterity. It also has a 3D mesh on the back and a wrap-around strap.

Skiing Business: Would that be a good backcountry glove too, John?

Kloser: Yes the FX-10 would be a good ascent glove, lightweight and flexible. But we have developed some backcountry specific gloves for 2013. We are using the NeoShell fabric from Polartec. NeoShell is a waterproof fabric that has unprecedented breathabilty. We have three models (See them here) that are being well received in the marketplace. REI is putting all three of our backcountry gloves into their stores for this fall.

Skiing Business: Speaking of new fabrics and technologies, it seems like more brands are incorporating technology into their handwear. Where do you see that market going?

Kloser: Wearable technology is becoming very important. We are currently selling G-Cell gloves that are bluetooth adaptable and will sync to your phone. You don’t need to take your gloves off to talk on the phone — you feel a vibration and just push a button to talk.

Season’s first Video Contest winner enjoys a powder day at Apex Mountain in British Columbia

All hail Cameron Little, this season’s FIRST winner in the Third Annual Swany Outdoor Adventures Video Contest. For his winning entry, Cameron gets a pair of great Swany Gloves.

In his own words: “My home town is Port Angeles, Wash., though I live at Apex Mountain Resort (B.C) in the winter. I’m currently a Computer Science/Honors student at Western Washington University in Bellingham. My parents introduced me to skiing when I was 4 years old. I raced a bit when I was younger, then got involved in freestyle at Apex six or seven years ago. Last winter I coached the D-Team at Apex, and this year I’m instructing and shredding at Mt. Baker Ski Area.

The video I submitted was one awesome day at Apex this winter break. We got about 20 centimeters of powder on Dec. 30 and I skied with my helmet camera all day. On the technical side, I filmed in 720p 60fps (almost all of the video is slowed down to 50%) and used Final Cut Pro X and Motion 5 for editing. The music was provided free by the Weeknd.”

Have a video that you’d like to enter? Just upload it to YouTube, Vimeo and the like, then send us the URL at swanygloves@gmail.com. That’s all there is to it! Complete rules here.

Take a look at last season’s winners in the  Swany Outdoor Adventure Video Contest winners, which ranged from the aerial acrobatics of Bobby Brown to out-of-control sledding to daring mountain rescues.
