It's a wintertime conundrum: You don't want your hands to get cold in the mountains, but you don't want to pay $200 for an expedition-grade mitten either. Don't worry: GearX.com has found the middle ground. The Summit Inferno mittens from Outdoor Designs have plenty of insulation to keep your hands warm, and they don't cost $200. They may lack some of the fancier features of pricey expedition mitts, like goatskin leather palms, removable insulated liners, and 800-fill down insulation, but if you're a more casual user who intends to stay below about 5000 meters, they should work just fine.Most users should find these mitts to be comfortable down to about -10 degrees F, especially if they're paired with liner gloves. Your results may vary depending on how cold-handed you are.Feature list from Outdoor Designs
