Mitten guy learns how to love a glove
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I'm generally a shell mitten guy. My hands run cold and I sweat like a pig. However, for ice axe use a sloppy mitten isn't particularly safe. After climbing up Hillman's highway on Mt Wash last year in 10F weather, I was dripping inside my softshells. When I pulled off these gloves to change into mittens, I was shocked to find they were dry. I wore them all day including summit at 10f, 30 knots and was super happy with the warmth, dryness and relative dexterity. I've been a convert since and ordered a backup pair just in case the market does something stupid and doesn't learn to love these gloves.
