The Big Mitt.

There's a certain breed of people that just likes cold. You'll find them at high latitudes, high altitudes, and in generally dangerous conditions. They run dog teams, tend trap lines, and keep our most frigid industries and communities going. 

They asked for The Big Mitt, and we delivered. The outer shell is made from the same 10 ounce Cotton Canvas and Elk Leather as our smaller True North Mittens, but that's where the similarity ends. The very shape and size of this pair is meant to fit over another piece of hand wear for those temperatures where you don't expose your bare skin. We build the shells with enough girth at the cuffs so you can cork the puffiest sleeve into them. The 1" webbing straps at the wrists and cuffs have grab loops that make them easy to operate in cold temperatures. Large Sheepskin panels cover the entire hand to cut wind chill. They're great for scrubbing ice and snow from instrument panels and eyewear. The serve as a good nose wipe too.

Since absolute performance is key in nasty temps, we've built liners from a mix of synthetics. <gasp> The rear panel and lower gauntlet are a sandwich of high loft polyester filament and rip stop nylon. It slips easily over other gloves or mittens, then traps heat like a sleeping bag. The palms are made from back to back layers of  recycled polyester pile for crush resistance. They snap securely into place at the cuffs.

The Big Mitt comes with an adjustable shoulder harness to keep them on your person. The back sides of the gauntlets sport daisy chain webbing strips so you can clip on  tools or a whistle. We plant a  buckle into the side seams so you can clip them behind your back while you're working. We also sets of snaps on the cuffs to keep the snow out while they dangle.

Colors: Black or Natural 10 ounce Cotton Canvas. Domestic Elk leather, and imported sheepskin. Leather and sheepskin colors will coordinate with shell fabric. Liners: 80% Polyester filament, 15% Polyester pile, and 5% Nylon.  Available in Small/Medium or Large/XL. Sized to fit over working gloves or mittens.

*If you find yourself getting cold in these, you might consider moving to a lower latitude.
