NOTES - Take just about any glove or mitten and add the Cover Mitten to give it handwear superpowers. It's a windproof and waterproof hard shell for your hands that extends the host handwear's usable range downward by trapping more air, too.
PERFORMANCE - We used the Cover mitts with a pair of already warm Hestra ski mittens. The covers added warmth to them by keeping the cold mist and wet man-made snow from sticking to the original mittens. The beauty is how small and light these are compared to the utility they provide. Ball them up and shove them in a pocket, and you'll forget about them. The best part is how stoked you'll be in your hour of need when you realize you've got them.
In normal situations, cold hands mean it's time to head in and warm up. But, when creature comfort isn't available, cold hands can signal the beginning of dire circumstances.
