Howl Supply co accessories, gloves, and mittens are a rider owned and opperated brand with the best team in snowboarding. Running through to roster is like a whoes who of snowboarding at the moment. However, don't think the brand is all marketing. they make some extremely high quality gloves and mittens (you really can't do better). Many Howl gloves and mittens are very good for tow rope laps and will handle many hours of street riding abuse. as if that wasn't enough. they will keep you dry and warm. what's not to love?
