Gear Review: Stoic Welder Gauntlet Mitt

A 100-percent wool-lined glove that heats hands instantly.


The 100-percent wool-lined Stoic Welder Gauntlet Mitt heats hands instantly, even in frigid temperatures. “It’s surprising how warm they are, given their low bulk,” our tester says after wearing them on a 0°F hike in Colorado’s Park Range. The compact insulation makes for outstanding dexterity (for a mitten), and rugged, reinforced leather palms stand up to sharp ski edges and tools. The gauntlet is just long enough to seal out snow without excessive overlap with jacket sleeves. $109; 11 oz.;
