The Super Light Mitt is a new addition to the Black Diamond handwear line in 2012, and its goal is combine expedition-grade warmth reminiscent of the Mercury and Absolute mitts in a lighter and more packable format. Accordingly, the Super Light Mitt keeps the durable leather palm of its siblings, but does away with the removable liner and replaces the heavier nylon outer shell with a 15-denier Pertex Quantum outer shell. The result is a more packable mitten that is still comfort rated to -25 degrees for most users thanks to its 284-gram Primaloft Kodenshi insulation, and waterproof to boot thanks to a GORE-TEX insert with XCR Product Technology.Feature list from Black Diamond
