Cold mountains, warm hands.
The Outdoor Research Women's HighCamp Mittens don't mess around when it comes to keeping your hands warm. Waterproof, well-insulated, and durable enough to withstand some serious abuse, these gloves will keep your hands snug and cozy whether you're climbing the Fuhrer Finger on Rainier or getting trenched in chest-deep pow during a dumper day at Stevens.
The outer shell of the glove is composed of a durable nylon shell, while a goatskin leather reinforced palm offers exceptional grip and durability. Behind the shell is Outdoor Research's Ventia insert for waterproof, breathable protection. A generous dose of PrimaLoft Gold insulation delivers warmth, making the gloves comfort rated down to 25F and -5F at their lower limit. Inside is a removable Radiant Fleece liner mitten, which is fitted with a silicone grip for added dexterity when readying gear in the early hours of the morning. Both a wrist cinch and drawcord at the cuff ensure a snow-tight closure,

- Q & A
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I got these mittens for my gf as a gift, and here is what she had to say:
"I've been wanting mittens for a long time. I always had gloves for skiing but my hands were NEVER warm. I don't have great circulation anyway, so they would get so painfully cold that I would have to take frequent breaks just to warm up my hands. Mission: Mittens, commence. My only requests were warm (for the love of god, please), and affordable. These gloves nail it! They come with super cozy mitten liners, but I have switched them for some glove liners recently for a bit more dexterity on the slopes and both options keep you nice and warm. I honestly didn't even know it was possible to have warm hands while skiing before my transition to mittens. They also appear true to size. I have fairly small hands, I suppose, received the small, and lo and behold, they fit perfectly. I can't really compare them to other mittens as a first time mittener, but I sure do love them and they seem like they are high quality and will last a good long while."
