If you take your winter outdoor adventures to extremes, you’ll appreciate the durability and thermal warmth of these Alti Mitts from Outdoor Research. These are the warmest and toughest winter mitts made by Outdoor Research, and are ideal for any skier, snowboarder and or winter backpacker who refuse to discount the importance of winter hand protection. The outer fabric features waterproof and breathable GORE-TEX®Performance fabric reinforced with tough Pittards® Armortan® leather across the palm and thumbs.
Outdoor Research used Kevlar to stitch the palm reinforcement material into the Alti Mitt for optimal longevity and dependability. PrimaLoft® One insulation fills the pre-curve, boxed construction, but you’ll find more of it along the back and thumb areas. Thinner Moonlite Pile fleece along the palms helps improve your dexterity. Unlike some snowboarding mitts and gloves, the stretchy “Idiot” Cord at the cuff is removable–which is a nice fuss-free option unless you drop your Alti Mitts from high places.
