Does anyone know whether these mitts are waterproof or not? I'm from WA and ski all over the PacNW n I definitely need some waterproofing...

Hi kpencil,

The Women's Heli mitt's shell is made of windproof, waterproof and breathable HESTRA Triton/Polyamide.

If you're partial to Gore-Tex, I'd recommend checking out the Hestra XCR Mitt - it is very similar to the Heli Mitt in terms of fit and warmth; the main difference is the XCR has a Gore-Tex insert combined with the HESTRA Triton shell fabric. This waterproofing combination might give the XCR an edge over the Heli Mitt on the wettest days; however, for the majority of days on the hill, either of these mitts will be excellent.
