  • High wear areas are reinforced with abrasion resistant 70-denier nylon.
  • Lined with fleece.
  • Thumbs and backs of hands are insulated with 850-fill power Responsible Down Certified Nikwax Hydrophobic Down that doesn't retain moisture.
  • Palms are insulated with a double layer of PrimaLoft Gold synthetic insulation.
  • Textured palms for gripping tools and axes.
  • Adjustable wrist strap keeps mitts in place.
  • Long gauntlets have low bulk cuffs with single handed adjustments.

Windproofness

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.

Windproof
Hand warmer pocket

The gloves or mitts feature a small pocket to insert a heater pack for extra warmth.
