MOSINEE - Cai Dickman has always loved the outdoors. And that includes on days when it's cold. Growing up in Wisconsin Rapids, and now living in Mosinee, it's essential to be able to battle the negative temperatures, he said. But a problem he noticed through the years while snowboarding, skiing and just running normal errands, was that his gloves always seemed to wear out quickly. His mittens would fall apart, and he'd end up with wet, chilly hands.
