Finding the right biking gloves can seem too difficult. They do not fit right. They are too warm (not warm enough). The design is too colorful (not colorful enough). The list goes on and on and on.

POW is new to the outdoor product scene and started operations in Seattle, Washington a few years into the new millennium. Their operations are streamlined to emphasize recreational gloves that fit right, look right and perform right.

A glove designed for cooler temperatures in the spring and autumn months (40 to 60 degrees Fahrenheit) is the POW Ozone. The palm of the Ozone is constructed from Clarino, a durable leather-like synthetic material that is also commonly used for law enforcement gear. The shell consists of nylon and neoprene with a Velcro closure on the cuff.

The POW Ozone demonstrated sufficient breathability especially over the long haul on a mile-intensive ride. The gloves keep your hands dry. Also The Ozone fits naturally and comfortably. The nylon and neoprene does have enough give to adjust to your hand as your ride.

The only disadvantage is its performance in the rain. They did initially repel a flurry of rain drops, but you are best served to ride to some shelter if the rain shower intensifies. This is common with most biking gloves and the POW Ozone is no exception.

POW LogoThe POW Ozone is recommended for use in cooler temperatures and climates. It has a comfortable fit and demonstrates ample wicking abilities. The Ozone comes in a variety of hip off-the-wall designs which is a must for all recreational gloves. POW lists the Ozone for $35.
