The Marmot 8000 Meter Mitt is the ultimate necessity for the high altitude mountaineer. Essentially this is two pairs of insulated mitts that can be worn as one in the most extreme mountain weather you are likely to encounter.
The outer mitt has a waterproof Gore-Tex Paclite shell that offers superb breathability and the palm boasts durable leather reinforcement preventing wear and providing grip. Primaloft One insulation provides excellent warmth and because it's treated with silicon it will repel moisture and continue to work even if it becomes wet. The mitt is secured with a strap across the back of the wrist and sealed with a drawcord at the gauntlet.
The inner mitt can be used as a single mitt in its own right and has been reinforced and siliconised in the thumb and index finger area. This enables the wearer to be able to handle equipment without impairing grip. The outer fabric on this mitt is also Gore-Tex ensuring a breathable waterproof barrier if used on its own. This inner mitt has been filled with 700+ fill power goose down providing the highest levels of insulation for work at altitude. This mitt has an elasticated hem and is attached to the outer mitt via the Velcro strip at the wrist.
