Furnace introduces valved second generation Response Dry Glove

Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 9 April, 2015 - Portland, Maine - Plowing through snow banks to catch a few waves is for the dedicated. So is whitewater kayaking at the start of the snow melt or stand-up paddle boarding when a hood, gloves, and booties are required.

That's why Portland, Main-based Furnace created the Response Dry Glove, a grippy, featherweight latex glove that goes over a fleece liner, all sealed at the wrist. 

"There is honestly no paddling glove on the market that keeps my hands as warm as the Furnace gloves," said Maine whitewater paddling guide, Taylor Walker

Now Furnace is introducing the second generation Response Dry Glove—the same stretchy, dexterous dry glove but with improved anatomical design for better circulation as well as a bite valve on top for blowing warm air into your gloves and purging it when it gets cold. Bonus: an upgraded, high-quality Polartec fleece liner. 

Furnace is currently raising funds for the glove's production on Kickstarter through Friday, April 24.
