The Sierra Designs Bootlegger glove is a leather work glove - if your idea of "work" is mountaineering, anyway. Mountain guides often use the term "work glove" to refer to a durable, dexterous, less-heavily-insulated glove that can be used for climbing, belaying, sorting gear, setting up tents, and all of that kind of "work." On a typical high-altitude climb, work gloves will be used most of the time and a pair of mittens will be carried for use when the mercury really drops.The Bootlegger glove features a durable deerskin leather palm, fingers, and back of hand; a waterproof-breathable insert; and 3M's ThinsulateTM
insulation. It bears a seal of approval from the Alaska Mountain Guides & Climbing School, and would be a fine choice for Rainier, Denali, or any other big climb where the packing list calls for this type of work glove.Feature list from Sierra Designs
