Dexterity is an extremely important feature in a touring glove, however dexterity does you no good if your fingers are cold and you can’t move them. La Sportiva decided to take matters into their own warm hands and craft a mitten to give you the best of both worlds. The lightly insulated finger pocket of the Skimo Mitten flips up and over the backside of your hand to vent heat or momentarily expose your digits for a quick transition. Mittens are inherently warmer than gloves because of the large air pocket that houses all of your fingers, but they are tricky when it comes to ripping skins, adjusting zippers and buckles, or fixing crampons. The convertible La Sportiva Skimo Mitten will let you float in the moat between dexterity and warmth.
