DAKINE FILLMORE MITT REVIEW
Dakine have a reputation for making great gloves of all kinds, but particularly the sort of mitts that serious backcountry riders need for spending whole days out in the cold. This Fillmore Mitt is a case in point. With 230g of insulation, it’s quite seriously warm – on Dakine’s own internal scale it’s rated 4 out of 5 – and it has features like nose wipes on the thumbs, and a leather palm to help with grip, all for a very reasonable £50. German pow-riding powerhouse Elias Elhardt has chosen a blue and white version of this glove as his signature model, and having worn them ourselves, it’s easy to see why.
ANALOG GENTRY MITT REVIEW
Analog have been producing a version of this big logo mitt for a few years and it’s proved highly popular not only with backcountry shredders like their team riders Danny Davis and Mikkel Bang, but also with new school street rail rats. It has 180g of insulation and a comfy fleece lining, so it’s pretty warm. Our favourite feature though is the cuff, which complements the Velcro tab with an adjustable webbing strap, which is easy to pull closed with your teeth if you’ve got the other glove on. This makes it extra difficult for snow to get inside.
