This generously sized hand wear is a must-have for those frigid days, whether you’re lashing gear to toboggans or clearing snow from the driveway. The cuffs open like a garage door for chilly fingers, then clamp shut over your sleeves. Wrap around webbing straps keep the fit snug and even at the wrist. True North Mittens are handcrafted with pre-washed 10.10 Army Duck or 50/50 Ny/Co Ripstop and supple 4 ounce domestic Elk Leather. I cover the entire top of your fingers with leather for unbeatable durability. Grab your splitting maul and head for the yard. They’re naturally heat resistant, so campfire sparks or the errant tailpipe won’t leave your hands clad in melting goo. My liners are the very same cozy blanket material as my shirts and coats. They snap into the gauntlets to ensure a stationary target.
True North Mittens are long and wide enough to accommodate a liner glove for use in deep cold. The pre-curved palms should hang off your fingertips. The cuffs slide over your jacket or parka sleeve, and seal with shock cord and a cord lock. Shells and liners separate for drying. They also have Delrin ‘D’ rings on the cuffs and cord loops near the thumbs to anchor your leashes. The wrist buckles are sewn to the wrist strap outside of the mitten, so it’s a snap to replace them if they every break.
Sizes: S, M, L, XL. Colors: Black or Natural 10 ounce Cotton Canvas with cream colored leather and coordinating webbing and hardware. Leather color will vary based on availability. Liners: 100% Wool. Cord locks are stitched in place, and will require factory replacement if damaged. Empire Mittens, like most leather goods, will require a short break in period to fully expand to your hands. I use game leather. You will see scars, range marks, and blemishes. These animals lived a good life, and their hides will show that.
