Oakley makes a range of gloves to the same high standard as its world famous goggles, and the high-end mitts in particular are notoriously toasty. The Snowmad boasts Gore-Tex weatherproofing, a Thinsulate lining and individual finger sections under the mitt exterior.
On a hot day these could just about cook your hands, but that’d be the only time these wouldn’t be comfortable. Besides, they’re designed for the times when you’re a long way from a hot chocolate and cozy fireplace. If you’re hiking an exposed peak, a heavy-duty pair of mitts like these will make a massive difference to your day. Yes, that’s a lot to be paying for a glove, but if you don’t want the full Ranulph Feinnes hacksaw experience in subzero temperatures then it’s certainly a price worth paying.
