Don’t let the cold keep you indoors this winter. Outdoor Research’s Stormbound mittens insulate your hands in 800+ fill down to keep them cozy all day long while touring in the backcountry.
A few years ago, while suffering from freezing fingers, I bit the bullet and slipped a pair of mittens on my hands. Unless it’s above 20 degrees Fahrenheit or slightly cooler on the uphill, you’ll almost always find me in mittens. The cold almost kept me from talking coherently in the video above, but my hands stayed warm.
When they built the Stormbound mittens, Outdoor Research sandwiched 800+ fill down between two layers of PrimaLoft® One synthetic insulation to keep your hands warm in wet weather and wick perspiration away from the skin. The Pertex® Shield outer shell is waterproof to further protects your hands.
If you suffer from cold hands, especially in the backcountry, give the Stormbound mittens a shot. I normally wear size large in gloves and mittens and I’ve found the sizing to be right on.
