- Q & A
The workmanship on the Astis Elbrus Glove is excellent. The pieces are stitched together precisely, and the beading is tight and symmetrical. The bead design reminds me of the Lakota, though I don't know if there is a cultural connection. The fit of the Medium glove is comfortable, and the Polartec lining is soft and warm. I bought the Elbrus for casual winter wear in Central Pennsylvania - as of Nov. 30, 2013, we have been down to 12 degrees F, with a windchill of 6, and my hands never knew it. I love these gloves!
