The Virago Mitt by Black Diamond is a lightweight insulated ski mitt of hiking mitt. The outside shell, here, is made from a woven nylon and it is waterproof breathable using GORE-TEX. The majority of the back of the hand, of course across the palm and through the thumb is reinforced with goat leather and you’ve got extra reinforcement at the thumb where you’d be grabbing a ski or snowshoe pole. On the back of the hand there is a zippered pocket. This works really well to put a heat packet in if it is bitter cold out and to reinforce that warmth the back of the hand does have Thermolite insulation in it which is a lightweight synthetic insulation. You have a long gauntlet that is going to fit well over a jacket and at the end here you have a single gauntlet pull. You can snug that in with one hand and get a good fit around your jacket cuff and keep snow out.
