Description

Designed for fast moving expeditions to the highest levels or for any extreme cold weather venture where weight is at a premium. Using Drishell fabric and a highly efficient lightweight construction these mitts provide real hand warmth when you need it.

The wrist cords (idiot loops) provide a flexible, light, and detachable system to reduce the chance of these light down mitts being blown away by the wind.

Technical

European goose down of very high quality. A truly excellent down with large clusters, consistent quality and lively long-term performance. More on our down insulation.

Tough Waterproof Tempest outer fabric (weight: 160gsm)

A technically advanced waterproof breathable material. 100% Nylon. Good abrasion and tear resistance, yet offering high flexibility for such a tough material. Order samples of this fabric & just pay the postage.
