Musher Mitt Set
Our Musher Mitts, plunge mitts that come up to the mid forearm, are the best extreme weather mitts made! When we started mushing over 20 years ago, we tried other mitts, were dissatisfied, of course, and took the best features of each and combined them with our materials. **Please note: canvas and buckskin colors will vary dependent on availability of materials All combinations we use are attractive. If you're concerned you can call us for current colors.***
The inner liner is our wool/polar mitt, with the same wool and polar 300 as our parka, which is warm, soft and helps manage condensation. The outer shell is waxed canvas with a buckskin palm and thumb for durability and water resistance. There is also a sheepskin nose patch on each mitt.
Three factors make these better than all the others. The first is the wool/polar liners which handle moisture better than synthetics alone and do not compress after one season like polar fleece alone. Second, waxed canvas breathes a little and holds its shape in the cold to make them easy to plunge into. Third is the thumb, which is designed where a thumb should be, on the side of the palm, rather than at the side of the mitt. This is a more natural position and makes them much more comfortable. These mitts are designed to be worn over liner gloves and are tested every day by our dog sledding customers. Many of the loaner pairs are 15 years old, worn 100 times/year and are still holding up!
Our customers love them for mushing, ice fishing and snow blowing, too!
Medium fits most women, Large fits most men and XL is for either a lot of room for extreme use or large hands. All handmade here from local buckskin (the same deer that raid our garden) and American Made fabrics. Canvas and buckskin colors may vary. Includes removable liners.
