Last year I paid $23 bucks for these gloves. These are outstanding for skiing and if you wait until ski season they'll cost a lot more than $6 bucks.
I first heard about it via Tim Ferris 5 Bullet Friday email last year (below is his text):
"Cost-effective workaround I noticed —
Kinco work gloves for skiing. In Stowe, VT, about 50% of the ski instructors had these on. Instead of tearing through $60-$100 ski gloves each season, they use these $15-$30 work gloves, which are more durable and just as warm. I saw both these and these on the mountain, the latter being less insulated."
