As active ski mountaineers know, layering is key to dealing with unpredictable weather. This applies to gloves as well. The CAMP Drymit'N is a handy companion for thin and dexterous skimo gloves when it gets colder or you'll be touching a lot of snow. Simply slide the waterproof mittens over your lightweight gloves to give your hands respite from the weather.
Shell mittens feature a waterproof membrane and taped seams to keep water out and warmth in.
Large cuffs with a drawstring easily slide over lighter gloves and cinch down to seal out the weather.
Pair packs down to the size of a baseball if used with the included stuff sack (10g).
Comes in Small, Medium, and Large sizes, also known as 1, 2, and 3 for confusion's sake.
Update 2019/20: CAMP updated the color scheme to black and blue.
Great for powder laps. Wear your light or medium weight gloves on the climbs. Slip on these mittens for the descent. No need to change gloves.
Nice to have the dexterity of the light gloves on transitions and the warmth of the mittens for skiing. The big, "traditional" ski gloves are great for resort skiing, but only come out for very cold temps while touring (<5F). My hands run warm though YMMV.
Comment on this review:
Im guessing this is a vapor barrier mitt with zero breathability? Still curious about the sizing. Have multiple gloves from med to xl in different brands. Any sizing specs available? Thanks
Hi Pete, yes this is a waterproof barrier, not designed to breathe. Here is a glove sizing chart from CAMP, which isn't exact since this is an overmitt. I'm an XL glove and fit the L Drymitt well.
The new season has arrived. I'm ready to pull the trigger on some waterproof overmitts. I love the concept. Wet gloves are typical in the uphill trench warfare while couloir hunting. Sadly, the Trabs run small and they don't have an XL. I'm curious about the sizing on these as well as the thumb issue another person raised. What's the updated intel?
Hey Brian, if you are an XL in a Ski Trab Glove the Large Camp Drymit'N Mitten would fit great. We are aware of the tight thumb but we do not think it is an issue and seems to fit over the gloves fine here in the shop.
This is a review of the pre-2019 generation of the glove that is still available on this site. This version is black with white writing and an orange liner. The new version has blue writing.
The pre-2019 version of this glove has an unfortunate pattern that creates a tight thumb. The new version appears to have a different pattern.
I normally wear a size small glove (8 inch max hand circumference) and ordered the size 1 version. This size was too small to fit over a moderately insulated winter glove (rab baltoro). If the sizing is maintained in the new version, I'd recommend sizing up to fit over insulated gloves.
These mitts are great. Pack up nice and small. Lining is smooth, so they are easy to put on over XC ski gloves with rubbery palms. Great for keeping gloves dry while doing a snow study. Nice to toss on when the wind picks up or when heading back down.
