Our Lutsen Mitts have been chosen by major mountaineering, Arctic and Antarctic expeditions over and over again. Why? Because they were designed to meet the critical demands of people who work and play in the coldest places on earth. For these people, mitts not only need to be very warm, they also need to be versatile and offer great dexterity,

weather resistance, ease of drying and grip. The shells are constructed of Eclipse Twin SensorĀ® fabric. The leather palms are made from a Pittards water resistant leather that stays supple and flexible in the coldest conditions and, unlike synthetics, acts as an insulator

against the penetrating cold. They have a double wool\fleece liner system of for the ultimate in versatility. And they have a pre-curved anatomical cut for dexterity. Our closure system uses 3/4" wrist cinch strap and a unique one handed bungee closure at the top of the gauntlet for snow-tight seal. (from Granite Gear product description)

I bought these mitts after using the OR Pro mitts for several seasons. These are awesome mittens, a world above the OR's. They are very warm yet there is still a reasonable amount of flexibility in them for working zippers, ski bindings etc. They have two inner liners so on warmer days you can shed a liner to make them a little less warm. Its easy to take the liners out for drying. The leather palms are very nice and they do keep the water out. I was a little worried that the leather would get wet and sodden, but it really doesn't. I have worn them in Colorado for both winter and spring skiing as well as in British Columbia for late winter skiing. A very important feature is that these mitts are very easy to get on and off with wet/damp hands. I would highly recommend these mitts for anyone that wants warm hands, especially fellow female mountaineers!
