Avoid the screaming barfies.
Modeled after Outdoor Research's Mt Baker Mitts, the Shuksan Mitten steps up to the plate with a newly redesigned 3DFit technology. And while most companies tout an iteration on the theme of an "anatomically correct pre-curve," the Shuksan's rendition sincerely features a fit that mimics a hinged articulation, meaning the mitt flexes, grips, and finagles as if your actual hand would with a tool in tow. Not only that, but the pre-curve construction allows for higher warmth and loft retention when paired with down-insulated, compatible mitten liners. However, the buck doesn't stop there—the Shuksan is fashioned with a lightweight, breathable, and waterproof Gore-Tex Paclite that ultimately provides wind-and-waterproof protection.

- Q & A
How does the Shuksan differ from the Mt Baker mitten?
Hi John, the Shuksan is more of a shell mitten designed for ice climbing whereas the Mt. Baker is an insulated mitten that comes with liners and is great for skiing, snowboarding and alpine touring, If you have questions about these or any other gloves or mittens feel free to reach out to me directly!
To add to Kyle's response, the Mt Baker used to have a "shell only" option, called the Mt Baker Shell Mitt. The Shuksan replaced that in our line, and the Mt Baker Mitt keeps on going with the Primaloft insulated liner gloves inside. Hope that helps!
