The details of your winter handwear matter when you're battling the elements high in the mountains, so the Stoic Welder Trigger Mitt was built with an array of expedition-worthy features that go above and beyond the call of duty. A waterproof breathable membrane keeps your fingers dry, a wool liner feeds your hand plenty of warmth, and a unique, lobster-claw-shape finger design ensures plenty of dexterity. Stoic's engineers went a step further and reinforced the palm of this mitt so it'll withstand alpine climbs, seasons of dawn patrols, and the trials of shorter, cold-weather mountaineering trips.

  • Softshell and goat leather reinforcements create a tough mitt with the flexibility you need to give your hand supreme freedom of movement
  • Low-profile and fully-welded construction increases overall durability while providing superior breathability over standard, sewn seams
  • Talon Finger system has a pre-curved shape that offers incomparable dexterity so you can flip buckles and zip zippers with ease
  • Waterproof Sympatex bladder shuns external moisture so your hands stay bone dry
  • Removable wool liner fends off the cold and makes it easy to dry your mitts in between storm days
  • Double Helix Gauntlet closure uses an elastic drawcord to cinch the gauntlet tight over the cuffs of your sleeves

Too Much Space

  • Familiarity:I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit:Runs large

These gloves look cool but I got a large and there was entirely too much room in the 3 finger mitten part. I am usually a medium so I will most likely return them for a medium or even small. I'm 5'9" but my hands just aren't that large. I do like the design though. The trigger pointer finger gives you lots of dexterity and I like that it has a liner. I think Stoic is a great brand and I'm willing to try a different size because I believe it's a better glove when it fits right.

Welding might not hold up over time

  • Familiarity:I've used it several times
  • Fit:True to size

I purchased the Stoic Welder gauntlet glove last fall. It is basically the same as this glove, but with a full 5 finger design. Also, its liner is fixed, not removable like on this glove. Otherwise, materials and construction are the same. After just one season of backcountry skiing, the welded seams are all beginning to come apart. I mean the gloves are actually just falling apart at every site where fabric was welded together. Perhaps coincidentally, perhaps not, I am having a similar issue with a Stoic welded duffel bag that I bought 2 years ago...the zipper, which was attached to the bag by welding, is just peeling away from the rest of the bag. I no longer trust Stoic's welding technology.

Just got these in the mail and am super psyched to get them out to the high alpine snow. I've been looking for some split gloves/mitts that were versatile yet sturdy and I think I found the right pair. The wrist cinches are great and there are even little plastic bits in the cuffs to keep them from bunching up around your wrists. Its the little things that make a good overall design. I'm only giving it 4 stars at this point because I can't testify to how warm these are in the -30 C winters we get here in Kyrgyzstan.

Great glove, surprisingly versatile

    I used these gloves for half of the season. The were surprisingly versatile and not bulky. I even wore them in the spring without the liner and my hands stayed dry and warm. I love the two different draw strings and how the cinch down around the wrist and opening.

    I bought this thinking they would be warm under most conditions but the most extreme.

    They definitely are not warm even in -5 Celsius maybe on warm spring days they will work but not in any colder temps. I generally like Stoic equipment but really dissatisfied

    I recently purchased a pair of these great...

    I recently purchased a pair of these great looking mittens. Fist thing I noticed when trying them on is that the index finger and thumb are really tight. Can those who have used these mittens tell me if this is a normal first impression? Can I expect the index finger and thumb to loosen up with a little use or are they simply to small for my hand? Thanks

    So I don't know if you played baseball as a kid, but think about how you had to break in a new glove when you first got it. New leather is going to be stiff, and tight and miserable. But once you break in leather its becomes custom to your shape, stretched to your hand like a second skin. Give it a little time and these will soon fit comfortably.

    wayne is right, leather will stretch. of course, manufactures have the uneviable job of making 4 sizes fit everyone. my stoic gloves fit great on day one and just felt stiff, but broke in. i recently tried some MH gloves and they were too tight. i think you have to decide exactly how tight are the gloves. if not too tight, they should stretch and be great. if really tight, you may need to try a different brand.

    Tech specs on the left say liner not...

    Tech specs on the left say liner not removable. Description says yes. Which is it? Also, is the liner 5 finger or just split?

    Best Answer

    The liners are removable and they are split the same as the outer glove with the thumb, index finger, and 3 remaining fingers. Haven't tried them in the snow yet but they seem to be great gloves. The finger configuration will be something I have to get used to as it is a little uncomfortable at first.
