Why We Built The Gore-Tex Snow Mitten

Backcountry's Gore-Tex Snow Mitten gives that same warm feeling we get everytime we see untouched powder. It's our most protective, warmest option for keeping our fingers prime for second laps up the skin track or the zillionth chairlift ride of the day. A solid combination of Gore-Tex waterproofing and durable leather protects Primaloft's warm, lofty insulation so you can forget what numb fingertips feel like.

Single Digit Skiing

I was pleased with the performance of these mittens. Great bang for the buck! They held up well to single digit temps and sub zero windchills on a recent ski trip. With the help of liners, they were even warm enough for my wife who has Reynauds!

Nice and toasty

These mittens are perfect for those colder days out on the hill where you need that little bit of extra oomf from your insulation. The leather is a nice and sturdy material, should hold up to a decent amount of "abuse" from snow sports. The only issue I have is that the wrist strap feels very similar to when you've got a little bit too tight hair tie on your wrist and it's starting to cut off blood flow, but the way around it is to just not use the straps.

Not a $100 glove

Familiarity:
I've used it several times
Fit:
Runs small

I have been out 4 days this season and these gloves already look a season old. The Thumbs on these run small. The cuffs are not my favorite compared to Knitwrist cuffs Want a nice glove in this price range checkout Handbag by CGHabitats A more affordable glove checkout Flyflow Unicorn mittens

These mittens contain super soft Primaloft lining on the inside and surprisingly soft/flexible leather on the exterior too. Comfort combined with the proven protection of Gore-Tex makes these an amazing value. My hands were too big for size ten and the larger sizes were sold out or I’d have used these all season.

This will be my go to glove this winter. Enough insulation to keep my hands warm on cold days but not overheat on warm spring days. Elastic cuffs are a nice detail for quickly taking off gloves on the lifts. It's a bonus they are very slim and look great under the cuff of your coat.

Heavy waterproofing, lightly insulated

True to size

I really dig the look of these, and there's nothing nicer than wrapping your hands up in Gore-Tex and leather for powder days. The cuff gives a snug fit that's sure to keep snow out. They are on the lighter side of insulation compared to other mittens, especially around the thumb.

Are the fingers separated inside the mitten?

Hey Jacob, no the fingers are all together in the mitten.
