Perfect for the all-season mountaineer, a unique magnetic closure allows this warm mitten to convert to a lightweight fingerless glove in seconds. The GORE® WINDSTOPPER® fleece keeps digits warm, and the mitten covering the fingers folds back to allow the tactility necessary for climbing.
WINDSTOPPER® fabrics offer windproof and breathability, combining the comfort of a soft mid-layer and the water resistance of a shell in one garment. Our WINDSTOPPER® collection keeps you comfortable while providing the freedom of movement you need for enhanced performance in a wide range of activities and weather conditions.
WINDSTOPPER® is a bonded 3 layer protection. The outer layer is high quality water repellent polyester micro fleece; the middle layer is ultra-light WINDSTOPPER® membrane and the inner layer contains polyester tricot knitting.
With its 3-layer construction, the WINDSTOPPER® membrane is bonded between a high performance fabric on one side and a quick-drying polyester fleece on the other. The durable water repellent finish offers additional weather protection.
WINDSTOPPER® protects your body's warmth from the chilling effects of wind and weather and prevents overheating and perspiration build-up by allowing moisture vapor to easily escape. The unique WINDSTOPPER® membrane totally stops wind from penetrating the fabric while allowing moisture to release unhindered for 2X more breathability than comparable windproof products.
WINDSTOPPER® performs well in outdoor activities, such as hiking, backpacking, cycling, hunting, mountain sports, skiing, snowboarding and trekking where weather conditions might include strong winds, light snow and rain. It retains heat not moisture and is 2 1/2 times warmer in 30mph wind than traditional fleece with no loss to breathability. And because its 'easy care', you can wash it in your machine.
