Description

Looking for a heavily insulated yet super-packable down mitten for use in emergencies or in camp? The Valandre Oural mitten is just that. It packs the serious warmth of an expedition mitten into a superlight package by removing superfluous features like leather palms, wrist cinches, and removable liners. It is therefore less oriented towards all-day climbing with ice axe in hand, and more towards swaddling your hands in maximum fluffy comfort while you are resting in high camps, or keeping warm in unexpected storms or emergencies at altitude. Valandre would like to remind you that keeping your fingers warm and functional is of critical importance - because if your feet are frozen, you can at least climb down, albeit painfully; but if your fingers are frozen, you can't open your tent, or lace your boots, or engage your figure-8 for rapid descent. That would mean big trouble, so keep those digits warm!

At a total weight of just 4.23oz. (120 grams) and filled with 50 grams of top-quality French gray goose down, the Ourals are an essential piece of high-altitude safety equipment.
