- Super lightweight
- Super packable
- Compatible with most gloves*
If it's chilly you might wear thin gloves until you warm up and feel they're better packed away. If colder, you might wear thicker, more insulated gloves and leave them on from start to finish. When the exposure and extreme wind/rain drive through your glove no matter what - you could do worse than to carry the Minimus Mitt.
Lightweight and simple to pack in a side pocket or even smaller, when the going gets cold, they go over your existing glove and keep wind and water out. Period. The effect is incredible. No need to remove one glove in favour of another, so you won't get cold in the process. Immediately things feel better for eliminating the temperature loss. Then the glove underneath continues to do its job, with no loss of function if operating equipment, map/compass etc. Thin, light, warm. Perfect.
There are times when during fair weather events which insist on hat/gloves as minimum requirements, that I pack my shell outers as a glove solution in itself. During minus ten wind chill on Kinder Scout or during the OMM Mountain Marathon, I've relied on them over my standard gloves for warm hands where the alternative wouldn't bear thinking about. CH
