With waterproof, breathable Ventia Dry inserts, goat leather palms and PrimaLoft Gold insulation, the Outdoor Research Men's HighCamp Mitts are perfect for skiing, snowshoeing or winter backpacking. These warm and durable mittens are well-equipped for cold and wet snowy conditions.
Durable materials with a waterproof Ventia dry insert, the Outdoor Research Men’s Highcamp Mittens are a great option to keep you warm when the weather gets rough. Let’s take a look at some of its features.
These gloves are constructed 100 percent with a nylon shell and they do have a goat leather palm. So you have got really good durability, water resistant materials, that water resistant goat leather palm and that Ventia dry insert. So you do have confident, waterproof protection under that nylon shell, so good external materials with the glove.
On the inside we do have 340 grams of Primaloft One insulation or Premaloft Gold insulation. So it is the lightest weight Primaloft you can get, super compressible and super warm without the weight of some of those other heavier, synthetic insulations. So really warm mittens while being very lightweight. And they do have an internal liner that is made with Outdoor Research Radian Fleece, so it is a nice liner mitten that has got a really lightweight, but really warm fleece material, so nice removable liner in there as well.
If you do decide to take out the liner and just wear the shell gloves by themselves, there is a nice high pile fleece in there as well. So you do still get some of that warmth. But there is that removable liner so you have that option to take that out. We will take a look at that.
So the liner on the inside is nice, lightweight, about 100 weight radiant fleece. So you have got good materials there. You have got some silicon grip on the palm so you get extra grip, extra sticky grip. And a really cool feature about these mitten liners is that they have touch screen compatible fingers and thumb. So you can use a smart phone very easily with that, very simple, very efficient use of those liners. So it makes a it a little easier if you need to access some of your things will you are on the go, a nice benefit to the glove there.
Going back to the mitten, some of the other features we have got going on, we have got a ladder lock wrist cinch. So you have got a really nice and easy cinch mechanism down along the wrist. So you just have a tab and you pull that and it really does lock it in place very nicely. So these gloves aren’t going to come off on you unexpectedly. So enhance the waterproof weather protection we do have a super cinch gauntlet closure. So you have got a really easy pull tab here. It is a one handed operation. You just pull to cinch down that gauntlet and then there is a little tab here that you can pull to loosen that system, so very easy to adjust there, very easy to keep the weather out.
You do have a removable leash or idiot cord, so that is a nice benefit if you want to wrap that around the wrist, you can choose to do that. It gives you some extra security. But if you don’t want to use that, it does remove easily, so you can leave it at home.
We also have a nice pull tab at the bottom to really kind of yank down and get a good, nice, snug fit on the gloves there, so a nice pull tab. And you have got a glove clip as well. So that will keep the mittens clipped together when you are not using them so they don’t, you know, fall away or you don’t lose just one mitten. So you have got a nice benefit there to the mitts.
The fit of these gloves is pretty nice. It is a snug fit. It does have a precurved construction so you have got kind of an anatomical fit. It is a natural feel. It gives you a really good grip and it will allow for a lot of movement while you are wearing the mittens, so nice fit, nice features, durable materials on the glove. So for any of those adventures when you are out in the backcountry and the weather is cold or rough, the Outdoor Research Men’s Highcamp Mittens are a great option.
