Wearing lightweight race gloves in the backcountry has spoiled us since the dexterity is unmatched. However, rare is the mid-winter day warm enough to wear a thin glove exclusively. The Dynafit Borax Mitten allows you to enjoy your dexterous gloves while keeping your hands warm. Slip these over your tiny gloves (on your tiny hands?) and let the Primaloft insulation do the talking (insulating). An overlapped split in the palm seals out drafts and still allows for easy access to rip skins, flip risers, or tear open a package of rocket fuel. The lining is Pertex Quantum, a wind-proof, water-repellent, rip-stop wonder fabric that will keep your hand-pillows coming back for more. Thanks to the Borax Mitten, warm hands on a frigid bluebird powder day are common-place.
- Pertex Quantum shell is waterproof, windproof, and rip-stop.
- Leather thumbs and Grip Zone on the palm help with pole-grip.
- Primaloft Lining is synthetic and still effective when wet.

Questions & Reviews
Also if I was a Large in those Crazy Idea over-mittens, what size would you recommend in the Borax? Thanks
How do these fit with the CAMP G Comp Warm Gloves? Specifically, the fact that the CAMP gloves have the insulating or windproof layer stored behind the wrist, does it get too tight in that area?
Also, is this glove warmer or more insulating than the G Comp Warm?
And last, should we size up to make room for the inner glove?
