The 4-Season Give'r Gloves: The Best Damn Gloves Ever

$224,370

The world’s most comfortable, versatile, and durable pair of waterproof, leather gloves.

The 4-Season Glove is designed to endure all of life’s challenges and enable seamless transition between work, play, and everything in between.

Life is awesome, but we have a tendency to restrict ourselves and fall into monotony. Give’r provides a tangible reminder to ourselves and those around us to seize opportunities in the everyday and to give life our all. Give'r promotes a lifestyle fueled by passion, purpose, challenge and adventure.

We aim to inspire the unrelenting pursuit of dreams, the confidence to take the road less traveled, and the desire to share the wonders of life with others.

We promote these beliefs by designing and creating straightforward, fun, comfortable apparel and accessories, made for the Give’r that lives within us all.

 Choosing to Give’r doesn’t solely pertain to outdoor adventures, it’s about giving it your all in everything you do. If you’re trying a completely new hobby, starting a company, or even moving halfway across the world to discover new experiences, the 4-Season Gloves are here to put adventure back in your hands.

These gloves are designed and built to get the job done so you can Give’r however you choose! Whether you’re a man or woman, parent or child, student or teacher, professional or amateur, these gloves were designed for YOU!  Get out there and live it up!

Designed for your day-to-day adventures, the 4-Season Gloves are perfect for travelers, adventurers, athletes, and everyone in-between. They’re more than just great-looking comfortable gloves, they’re a daily reminder to seize opportunities in the everyday and live your life to the fullest.

The new 4-Season Gloves’ leather exterior provides superior dexterity, durability, and insulation for your hands. The gloves are waterproof and designed to handle colder temperatures and intense winter weather, while at the same time tough enough to literally hold a burning log. 

The 4-Season Gloves keep you warm and comfortable whether you’re gardening, skiing, chopping wood, climbing a mountain, or even dog-sledding. They make the cut for essential everyday gear that looks good, feels good and gets the job done.

Use the 4-Season Gloves for any cold-weather sport, work, or recreational activities. These gloves are as multifunctional as you are.

                                         
                                

Sizing (you will choose once the campaign is over):

If you have longer fingers and are on the line between sizes then go with the larger size of the two. If you are in between sizes on the chart, and like a tighter fit, then go with the smaller size; if you like a roomier relaxed fit, then go with the larger size.

Comparison to sizing on Classic Give’r Gloves: The 4-Season Gloves are designed to be more form fitting when compared to the Classic Give’r Gloves. While most customers wear the same size in both styles, if you are between sizes, or find your Classic Gloves to fit snugly, we recommend you select the larger size of options.

Initial Branding: 

 

Each glove is as unique as their owner, and we take great pride in the workmanship and attention to detail needed to make a pair of glove truly YOURS. Limit of three letters if you choose to have your gloves branded, branded on both the left and right hand.

Wax “Bomb-Proof” Coating:

We will hand-treat and bake your gloves with bee’s wax, saturating the all-leather shell, resulting in a look that is as tough as the gloves themselves.

We set out to design a timeless and stylish pair of gloves that is utilitarian through and through. Any day, any situation...this one glove does it all.

  Durable Shell

The outermost layer features top grade cow leather that is tanned and treated to be waterproof. While cheaper alternatives exist, this leather was selected because it is the toughest available/on the market, yet soft and quick to break in. Leather shell has been reinforced for wear and tear on palms and fingertips.

 Hipora Membrane

The second layer of the 4-Season Glove features a membrane that is wind-proof and waterproof, protecting your hands and keeping them warm and dry. This membrane features tiny microscopic perforations that enables water vapor to escape, keeping your hands ready for action.

Thinsulate Insulation

The third and innermost layer utilizes material that is breathable and moisture-resistant to keep you warm and comfortable. Thinsulate insulation works by trapping heated air molecules between you and the outside thereby keeping your hands warm and isolated from the cold.

Leather Skirt

Leather skirt keeps snow, moisture and other material out of the gloves when putting them on and while wearing them. The inner cuff of skirt provides the perfect canvas for the Give’r Crew to hand brand your initials.

Leather Strap On Cuff

Pull straps make it easy and non-damaging to put on or remove your gloves as quickly as as you like.

Elastic Cuff

The compact design of the elastic cuff provides a snug fit, yet flexible fit around your wrist. Keeps heat in and and everything else out while remaining comfortable enough to wear all day.

Evolved from our best selling Classic Give’r Glove, coined “The Glove of 100 Uses”. The demanding terrain and temperature extremes encountered by the Give’r community resulted in countless requests for a glove that retained the core of the Classic, but incorporated additional features and enhanced performance.

Over the past year and a half, we have designed and tested more than two dozen glove prototypes in our pursuit of this glove.

Give’r was founded in March 2012 in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. Our product line began with two t-shirts, two hats and a commitment to our customers that we’d stop at nothing to ensure they were happy with their Give’r Gear. Our dream has come to life through 4 years of working multiple jobs, taking challenges head-on, continuously learning, receiving a tremendous amount of help, and our belief that the world is a better place with Give’r in it.

 The road for a lifestyle apparel start-up company in Wyoming is not paved or easy-going, but we have been living by our motto, and have given our all to shape this vision into reality. We are beyond psyched with this opportunity made possible by Kickstarter and you, our backers, to write the next chapter of the Give’r story. Without your help, we wouldn’t exist. We are eager to set our roots and charge forward as a company that exemplifies what can be possible when you follow your heart. We take this step with confidence in our products and wholehearted gratitude for all those in our corner, cheering us on. 

 We strongly believe in giving back through service and financial support, and have worked with dozens of local, regional, national and international non-profits since our inception. We believe in forming community by working with local businesses and connecting our customers from across the globe. We are proud members of 1% for the Planet and 1% for the Tetons, and are committed to playing an active role in making the world a better place for generations to come.

Our goal is to bring to life the Give’r that lives within us all. Straightforward, fun, comfortable apparel and accessories were at our core on day one, and we have built upon this foundation over the last 4 years. Your support enables our team to be fully dedicated to Give’r while maintaining control of our mission and the ability to take risks that may not be possible through traditional fundraising means. 

 While the 4-Season Gloves were merely an idea 2 years ago, the opportunity to share a final product in the flesh is something we are extremely proud of. We have completed the initial short-run of production and are as psyched as our videos and pictures show. They are freakin’ awesome. We are a young company, and putting the 4-Season Gloves into full production takes a lot of work and capital. We are 110% committed to the work in front of us, but need your help in bringing the 4-Season Gloves to life at large-scale production. Take advantage of the big time discounts from retail pricing and join in the effort to support a company who is giving it their all to bring you the best damn gloves ever.

It all began in 2011 with the design and creation of custom hats commemorating an epic annual kayaking expedition in Ontario, Canada. These hats, featuring the skyline of the Tetons and the colloquial phrase “give’r”, were the seed from which Give’r was born. This team, with help from an awesome and ever-growing community, gave life to a philosophy and lifestyle that is perfectly embodied by these 4-Season Gloves...our greatest creation to date!

Risks and challenges

We know there can always be curve balls along the way during production. Our initial short-run production and experience in manufacturing and eCommerce over the last 4 years has allowed us to mitigate much of the risk, but it still exists. We will always be honest and communicative with our community about challenges, including these:

Ship Date: We are confident we will ship by the projected dates, as we have manufacturers standing by for final order quantities. While there is always a chance things will take longer than planned, we feel strongly that our experience will mitigate this, and that all pieces are in place to Give'r.

Product Changes: As we receive community feedback and continue our product testing, slight changes may be made. Rest assured, we'll only make changes that enhance the product experience.

Just as we felt 4 years ago when Give'r was formed, we commit to you that we’ll do everything possible to ensure you’re happy with your gloves. If still skeptical...get a pulse from our community via our website (www.give-r.com ), social media outlets or press reviews.
