By the way, i'm glad you are sourcing the original BPL possum down gloves. It's nice to have options. Thanks for not gouging us on the price, too. If my cheapo ones don't work out, i will definitely be ordering a new pair from you.

Specifically, I would love a pair of the convertible style, where they can fold back to reveal your fingertips. I ordered a pair from NZ, which were so so difficult to find at the time, and I carried them on my thru hike last summer. Yes, they definitely wore out -- my pair is patched with old socks and dental floss, but I still am wearing them on my morning walks. I didn't expect them to last forever, but I really have a tough time finding the convertible mitten style in any glove of my liking, so I am happy to replace them when need be -- assuming there's a source.

@Bruce, the post mentioned that we were checking interest levels for a bulk order from New Zealand. I'm happy to report that it looks like the demand is good. We've been preparing a new ecommerce site, and should have the gloves next month. I'll post here when they are in...

BPL had a special "High Loft" blend I believe.

How do these compare to those?

I received the ones I ordered from the link posted by Matthew Perry.
They look and feel exactly as the BPL purchased ones do (Thanks Matthew...)

Note the different size.
I purchased the BPL in M size but are a bit small for my M sized hand (they stretch a bit) however the size in cm is accurate, so I would strongly suggest you ignore M/X/XL and that and just measure your hand.
I just went back to the original BPL order page and the chart was the same used by the NZ shop I bought them from as well as the one from the OP, so I would safely assume that they all come from the same factory.

Thanks Franco for the update. Good to know there is a second source available. However, those ship from New Zealand an have a longer delivery time and are still more expensive if you add in shipping (for us USA folks anyway. Aussies would be better off with your option).

NOW IN STOCK: Original PossumDown Gloves.

Ships from USA.

The shop I purchased them from had limited stock and it was a "clearance" line.
My post was to confirm that we are talking about the same gloves that BPL sold .
The std BPL price was higher than yours, not sure about postage within the US but I doubt that it was as low as $3...
(that 43 was meant to be $ of my fingers is faster than the other)
