**GLOVE PULLS AND WRIST SHOCK CORD ARE NOW BLACK.  SOME HARDWARE HAS CHANGED**

Perfect for cold, rainy stretches, The Ultralight Rain Mitts keep your paws dry.  Warm also, when used with a liner glove. We recommend lightweight Possum-down gloves. Using Dyneema Composite Fabric in conjunction with Dyneema Hybrid Fabric, these mitts are super lightweight at about one ounce for a pair, but surprisingly abrasion-resistant in the palm, where your hands will be in contact with trekking poles. These are a must for cold-weather trips or if you're expecting rain, sleet or snow.  
    
    *Due to dye-sublimation, colors may vary slightly.

    Designed, printed and sewn in Philadelphia, PA 

    Pattern by Caman "Bones" Skelton

Care Instructions: Clean dust and dirt from Mitts before storing.  Store out of direct sunlight and moisture.
        Hand wash with a gentle soap.  
        Do not iron.  
        Do not wring.  
        Drip-dry in shade.
        Do not bleach.

Sizing: These mitts are meant to go over liner gloves. They will work without them but are much more comfortable and warm if using a liner glove. They may fit a little large if not using liners. Measure from the base of your palm to the tip of your middle finger.  This is the base measurement we use for sizing. A Sm/Md size will fit most people with a base measurement of 6.5" - 7.75". A Lg/Xl size will fit most people with a base measurement of 7.5" - 8.25".
