The 2022 Coldlap brings you a wider wrist, upgraded Coats stitching, and a slightly adjusted fit that makes this glove slip on easy, and stay on strong.

Ropetow gloves should fit snug!!




Are you looking for more than 1? Get the DOUBLE UP bundle!

In the 2022 COLDLAP, expect a wider wrist to keep the cuff together better, and an overall wider fingerbox. We hit what we felt was the best balance between roomy and slim, so it doesn’t mash your fingers but doesn’t twist much on the rope. Better stitching throughout holds everything together, and we still hit the price point that keeps you from starving. Let them dry out after every use by sliding them onto pegs or at least hanging from the wrist bands, so you don’t stink up the place.

The features you’re looking for:

  • Thick rubber grip on the proven synthetic palm patch
  • Tough leather finger wear strip
  • Pigskin shell – you can add waterproofing (wax, spray, your pick)
  • Chairlift bands – stop dropping your gloves!
  • Thick insulation for the coldest of cold days


Born out of frustration at ropetows eating 6 pairs of mitts per season, the journey to the perfect durable vs comfortable combination brings us to today.

The design originated on a sewing machine at my mother-in-law’s kitchen table in 2015. We bought leather from SR Harris in the cities, traced out mitts that we liked, and tweaked the style until we had a mitt that was pretty decent. That got sent to a factory in China, where they recreated it, and we went through 8 versions before the first mitt was finally produced for the 16/17 season.

Today we’re partnered with a major manufacturer in China that produces a bunch of big brands you’ve been seeing for years. We changed the mitt to a full pigskin shell, with seam tape and double stitching to keep it dry and keep it together on any ropetow you’ll find out there.

  1. Gorg

    Great warmth… love the chairlift strap and is a very comfy glove. They look amazing off the shelf. After one day in the park all the synthetic was egtting torn up and the sticky palm was tareing up. Questionable if theyll last the season.

  2. Max

    Very good lasted more than a season with only a little bit of tear

    I’ve been using these gloves for about a week now and they are very warm, but they look shredded. I just don’t think they are able to survive the rope at my hill.

    This company do NOT lie when they say ‘this is the world’s greatest ropetow mitt!’. We live in Minnesota and my kid is at Wild Mountain shredding it up at least 4-5 times a week. Other brands we tried did not last a week, I mean these kids go up and down that rope tow at least 100 times+ each day. My son used to complain his hands were freezing, his gloves got holes in them after one week of wearing them. I was broke paying out for new gloves all the time.
    Then our lives changed when we found The Coldlap brand. I mean, WOW! My son loves them, they last the whole season and keep his hands warm the whole day, (my wallet is also doing much better!)
    I can not say enough good things about this Brand! Keep up the good work Coldlap and Thank you!
