Description

A special-edition Astis mitten featuring the Backcountry.com goat.

Show that you're one of the herd when you pull on the long Astis Backcountry.com Co-Lab Mitten. Astis Mittens was founded in 2011, but the story goes back over a decade. A man was canoeing in northern Ontario when he met a Cree woman, and traded her a pocket knife for a pair of warm leather mittens. Neither of them knew that their friendly trade would spark one of the most unique and interesting mitten companies on the planet. Astis combines traditional construction and modern, weather-stopping tech to keep your hands warm in eye-catching style. This special edition of the Astis mitten features the Backcountry.com goat custom-stitched into the beadwork on the top of the mitten.

  • Leather exterior protects your hands from the cold and breaks in to form the perfect fit over time
  • Silicone-injected leather sourced from a tannery in Milwaukee blocks moisture
  • DWR coating helps the leather exterior repel wet snow and moisture
  • Polartec fleece lining adds warmth without adding bulk
  • Long fit forms a secure seal where you jacket and mittens meet
  • Beadwork and trims are handcrafted in Oregon

What do people think of the durability of these things?
Im going to Svalbard Norway for a year, and I want something warm and yet still attractive to make it through the polar night.

also any insight on how they compare to the astis zurbriggens? does one have more insolation than the other?

Hey CM!
I've had these mittens for 2 seasons now (The Sacajawea style). They are extremely durable. The fuzzy PolarTec Thermal Pro insulation does pack out a little bit after extensive use, but nothing too extreme.

In retrospect my only regret is going with the lighter cream color, as dirt shows up pretty easily. If I had to do it again, I would go with darker Brown colored leather you see on this page.

The insulation on this mitten will be the same you find on the Zubriggen.

Pick up a pair of these and head for the slopes instead of the bar! They look amazing and perform even better! I love the fur, intricate beadwork, and waterproof leather. They keep my hands warm and dry all day in ~5*F weather. I have yet to try them in colder temps but will update this review when I have done so. So far, I absolutely LOVE them! **One thing to note is that the leather, at least on mine, is much less copper than the picture, and more of a brownish color**
