  • High-loft insulation is heavier on back of hand for extra warmth, lighter on palms for easier grip.
  • Brushed polyester lining for comfort and warmth.
  • Grippy polyurethane palm material extends up the fingerbox.
  • Sniffle patch/goggle wipe on thumbs.
  • Wrist strap secures mitts to hands.
  • Quick-closing elastic drawcord to keep in warmth and keep out snow.

A windproof garment does not allow any air to permeate the fabric. A garment with windproof panels has panels of fabric that are totally windproof, but the rest of the garment may not be windproof. A wind-resistant garment resists some wind, but not as much as a garment that is windproof.
