With a durable woven nylon and goat leather shell, the Crew Mittens have waterproof and breathable Gore-Tex inserts to deliver dry protection, while the fleece and Thermolite insulation prevents your fingers from turning to finger-cicles in frozen conditions.

My husband has an older version of these mittens, which I have come to hijack quite frequently and greatly appreciated their high performance and terrific construction, not to mention my old Burton mitts had seen better days. So I figured I should probably quit stealin' his and buy my own. I knew I would be head-over-heels for these mitts from the get-go, but the fact that these mittens were Gore-tex, built with strategically mapped synthetic insulation, and went over my jacket sleeve rather than under further made these mitts amazing. They are most definitely pretty darn warm though, so if you have sweaty palms like me I'd recommend wearing a very lightweight merino wool or silk liner. All in all, I love the Crew mitten. It has performed outstandingly in pretty bitter conditions at Solitude and performs surprisingly well in warmer conditions too. Additionally, my husband has worn his while snowboarding in New England (mostly in New Hampshire) and utilized them throughout his Avy class where they've again performed extraordinarily well.
