Some of the best cold-smoke powder days, with the fluffiest snow of the season, are the same days the temperature doesn't even try to climb above zero. You throw on all your layers and cover anything exposed, but no matter what you do the blocks of ice you call hands refuse to thaw. Once you slip on the Astis Zurbriggen Mitten, you may never have this problem again. The silicon-injected suede leather is windproof, virtually waterproof, and breathable, and the Polartec Thermal Pro high-loft insulation is some of the warmest available. Extra-long cuffs allow for a jacket to slide fully inside without bunching while providing a snug fit that keeps out snow on the deepest days.
In addition to the killer performance, these gloves pack some serious style. Astis is the Cree Indian word for mitten, and the Native American-inspired design is evident in the bead work, leather frill, and rabbit fur trim that can be seen on the cuff of the mitten. This mitten also happens to be named after the famous Swiss mountaineer Matthias Zurbriggen, and the Swiss Cross bead design pays homage to his memory. If you're looking for an ultra-warm mitten with some serious style points to boot, this mitten is your ticket to ride.
