The Rab AStral Mitts are very warm and remarkably dexterous mitts for mountaineering in very cold conditions. Constructed from a Pertex Shield outer for durability and weather protection and a combination of down and synthetic insulation mapped to different areas to maintain excellent dexterity and insulation during more technical use. A Pittards Leather palm will prolong the mitts life during more demanding tasks like belaying.
Filled with 750FP R.D.S Certified European Goose Down throughout the main body of the glove. The down has a NikWax flurocarbon free hydrophobic treatment to improve its performance in damp conditions. To improve dexterity and ensure that insulation remains in place on the palm, Primaloft Gold Grip Control is used instead of down. Synthetic Primaloft maintains its insulating properties even when wet, so belaying with wet ropes will not result in cold hands. Primaloft Gold insulation is also used on the back of the hand so they will stay warm even when digging or post holing through deep snow.
