Buffalo Pile Mitts Reviews
Reviewed by Ed (Chester) on 2006-10-30:
General comments: A good basic mitt. Always wear mine when winter mountaineering. When winter climbing have them in my sack for the top of the route.
Warms up hands fast. Was in snowdonia at the end of a route using extremeties windstoppers and i'd lost all feeling in my hands. Put these on and in 10 minutes my hands were toasty.
Pros: Basic nothing to go wrong. No membrane to break/leak get holes in. Even when wet hands stay pretty warm- Mitts warmer than golves. Dry quick. Lightweight.
Cons: Can't think of any!
