Whether or not you’re a winter person, you’ve got to keep your hands protected when out among the elements. One of the quickest disappointments with outdoor adventures is when your gear fails, making you cold and wet, and ready to go back indoors to sit by the fire.
Ideal for skiing or riding, but also perfectly good for making snow people, Burton Women’s Gore-Tex Mittens are trusty partners in the outdoors.
Made with a two-layer Dryride shell fabric, the mittens are breathable, waterproof, and also quick-drying when they get wet. Gore Plus Warm technology helps protect against harsh conditions, keeping your hands warmer for longer adventures in the cold. A Screen Grab PU synthetic palm on the mittens are relatively touchscreen friendly, however I found that it was an easier task with the Screen Grab removable liners, which feature four-way stretch and flexibility.
Even without those liners, the cozy, brushed microfiber interior of the mittens pull moisture away from hands, and ThermacoreECO insulation gives focused warmth. An extended gauntlet design gives your hands and wrists added coverage, and the adjustable wrist cinch keeps them secure. The removable wrist leash assists with that security, if you prefer it.
The mittens have an ergonomic, pre-curved fit that’s incredibly comfortable. There is an additional heater/vent pocket on each mitten, for added warmth. And when your nose is drippy (or just itchy), the soft nose wipe on the mitten thumb is the perfect solution.
My hands get cold quickly, and I’ve tested these mittens out in this season’s snow a few times already. They’re among my go-to snow favorites.
The Women’s Gore-Tex Mittens come in elderberry, felidae (camo), true black, Amparo blue, and gray heather. They list (on sale) for $63.96 on the Burton site.
