A smash hit in the warm-mitten category, Mercury Mitts have been keeping hands toasty around the world for years. GearX has sold nearly 2,000 pairs of them over the past couple of winters, so there are plenty of happy owners out there who can attest that the Mercury Mitt is their go-to choice for frigid weather. Their legendary warmth is provided by a removable liner filled with high-grade Primaloft One insulation and lined with high-loft Polartec Thermal Pro fleece, which can withstand temperatures as low as -20o F for most users. Mercury Mitts are generally warm enough to take you anywhere in the continental US, Europe, or South America; the even warmer Absolute Mitts take over for 8,000 meter Himalayan peaks, Alaska/Yukon mountaineering, and polar adventures.
ABOUT BLACK DIAMOND
Black Diamond is all about climbing and skiing. The company traces its roots back to 1957, when pioneering rock climber Yvon Chouinard started making pitons on a backyard anvil. In 1989, Chouinard Equipment Ltd. became Black Diamond Equipment, and these days the company offers a vast array of equipment for all kinds of mountain activities.
Here at GearX.com, we sell more Black Diamond items than any other brand. From avalanche gear to Z-Poles, Black Diamond has the right tools for your adventure.
The Black Diamond Women's Mercury Mitt, with female specific shape and sizing, is good for frigid temps well below zero, also versatile enough to use for summer mountaineering. Dexterity for working with ropes or swinging an ice axe comes from the Mercury Mitt's removable, trigger finger liner, while the 100% waterproof BDry insert keeps slushy snow out on sunny spring afternoons.
