Best Snowboard Mitts 2019-2020

Chosen by the Whitelines Test Team

If you want the absolute warmest handwear for the mountain then a good pair of snowboard mitts is your best choice.

The theory behind mitts is simple: they keep your fingers together within the fabric, and they expose less surface area to the cold. Both of these factors reduce the amount of heat lost through evaporation.

Of course, this being snowboarding there are a ton of variations within this theme, from full-on backcountry hand protection to lightweight, park-orientated models.

“What they lack in digits, snowboard mitts make up for in style”

The best mitts – at least, in terms of pure warmth and shelter – will combine a cosy lining with a Gore-Tex shell (Gore-Tex fabric offers the ultimate combination of waterproofing and breathability). Leather and suede mitts are also popular these days, but will need the occasional wax treatment to ensure they don’t start to soak up water.

The obvious downside of mitts is that you sacrifice dexterity – fiddling with your bindings, making a phone call or smoking a cigarette will require you to ditch them occasionally. Trigger mitts offer something of a compromise by freeing your index finger, but if being able to flip the bird is important to you then you might want to check out our list of the best snowboard gloves for 2019/20.

What they lack in digits, however, snowboard mitts make up for in style. The large palms offer a great space for brands to experiment with graphics, while the whole package is just cleaner, with fewer fiddly seams – making for a tidy look as you blast out of the white room and wipe the powder from your face!

    DaKine Fleetwood Mitt Jamie Anderson Snowboard Mitts 2019-2020

    PRICE: £55/€60

    Boss lady Jamie has put her name to the Fleetwood Mitt this year, and we think it looks rad. Although this lil’ palm pleaser isn’t just a pretty face, a polyurethane ‘DKdry’ insert sits inside the glove to keep the rain and snow out. A DWR coating sits on the exterior to ensure the water beads off and doesn’t begin soaking through.

    High loft synthetic insulation runs through the mitt and is housed inside a soft fleece lining. The palm is a softer, grippier material for sticking those tricky grabs and to make sure you don’t drop the ball.

    Removable wrist leashes mean you can say goodbye to that heart dropping moment when you see your favourite mitt fluttering off the side of the chairlift. DaKine have brought a warm, stylish, functional mitten to the table, and best of all, the price is super reasonable.

    Drop Tahoma GTX Snowboard Mitt 2019-2020

    PRICE: $77

    The Tahoma is a high-quality mitt, packed to the fingertips with features and tech, with a snazzy look. The back and palm are made using premium Goatskin leather to ensure it’s a durable and hard-wearing mitten.

    The thumb and index finger are touch screen compatible, because it’s 2019 and if we’re being honest with ourselves we’re all slaves to technology now. There’s a tab just below the palm on either glove, that you can use to adjust the glove by pulling up and down.

    The main job of a mitten is to keep your hands toasty and stop them from getting soggy, so these are filled with Primaloft Eco Gold insulation – which is 90% recycled for bonus planet points. A GoreTex lining guarantees to keep your paws dry and is breathable to stop you from getting too sweaty.

    Micro Suede might sound like a tiny person from Sweden, but in this instance it’s actually a layer on the thumb that you can use to wipe your goggles (or your nose if you’re snotty).
