Delivering maximum warmth for cold days of skiing, snowboarding, or other winter adventures, Outdoor Research Stormbound Mitts utilize a hybrid combination of down and synthetic insulations to ensure comfort even in wet conditions.
We are taking a closer look at the Outdoor Research Stormbound Mitts. These are a really innovative and comfortable mitten that is going to provide all of the warmth and protection you need when you are on the mountain. So these would be perfect for skiing, snowboarding, winter pursuits where you need something with the ultimate warmth.
There is a mixture of insulation. There is very high quality 800 plus fill power down mixed with synthetic Primaloft One insulation. So that power of down, that 800 fill power down is going to provide a lot of warmth to weight and just give you all that loft in the glove that you need, but then the synthetic insulation that is mixed with it is going to give a lot of protection against wetness and against moisture. So a synthetic is great when you are perspiring or when you need that to dry out quickly. So very innovative mixture of materials there. This is a mitt. So you have just got your thumb here and then your fingers on the inside.
There is actually a really cool design that you can’t see. It is behind the scenes. But there is actually little dividers between the fingers there inside this mitt and it is really soft. It is a very lightweight fleece. And it just gives you that extra insulation in between your fingers. So it is very comfortable and very warm there.
On the palm here you have got goat leather. So you have got a lot of durability there. I have nose wipe on the other side of the thumb. And then you just have a lot of dexterity with this, too, so you have got a lot of mobility there in the mitt. Moving up here to the cuff you have Velcro there and a lot of stretch, so this is definitely going to fit a variety of people. It is extremely comfortable. You can really batten that down if you need to or you can open that up, so it is a nice design there. You have a really durable pull handle that you can pull the mitts on and off. And then there is also a leash there. So if you need to take your mittens off while you are on a lift or just so that you don’t want to lose that, that is really great there.
So overall a really great design. You can clip the mittens together there so you don’t lose them in luggage and they are extremely warm. They are extremely packable and light weight and very durable and waterproof as well.
