Designed to withstand the harshest conditions, providing waterproof insulation. An engineered modular mitt for multiple uses in mountain environments.

Rab says

Take no chances. With its extended gauntlet, two-part construction and all-weather synthetic insulation, our Blizzard Modular Mitt delivers warm, waterproof protection for the worst the mountain can do.

Our Blizzard Modular Mitt is ideal for winter walks, cold-weather scrambles and fully committed Big Mountain days. The removable inner glove uses Stratus™ recycled polyester sheet insulation, which combines inherent softness with an outstanding warmth-to-weight ratio, as well as excellent insulation when wet and fast drying properties when the pace drops. That is partnered with a high-loft Sherpa fleece liner and a two-layer ripstop nylon outer with a waterproof DWR coating. The new mitt also includes an adjustable wrist tensioner and a removable wrist leash, plus a long gauntlet for extra protection and a pre-curved fit for easy articulation.

With a tough goat leather palm, a soft nosewipe and a digital palm overlay for grip, durability and comfort, our Blizzard Modular Mitt is tailor-made for multi-discipline cold-weather mountain sport.

Our Verdict

Rab's Blizzard Modular Mitts are the perfect winter mountaineering Mitt for those cold wet snow days.

The soft leather at the tip of the glove allows you to maintain some form of dexterity whereas with other mitts I find you might as well tape your fingers together. The reinforced palm leather maintains its grippiness with ice tools even when the weather changes from snow to sleet - a Scottish mountaineering staple.

The removable inner is a glove so when wearing the glove as a whole unit your fingers are separated inside the glove. The inner is an insulated waterpoof glove that can work perfectly fine on it's own if needed - note that it does not have a reinforced palm so it will be susceptible to any abrasion. The Insulation is a soft pile material that is thicker on the Palm side than the back side of the hand so it doesn't affect your hand from gripping anything.

The removable wrist leash is a good idea as I personally don't use the leash unless I am mid climb as it annoys me when I'm just hiking. The soft nose wipe outer panel on the thumb section is a great addition to this Mitt as it's very practical. Another practical element that Rab have thought of is a gear loop on the finger end of the mitt so you can attach them to your backpack and not worry about any moisture going in through the wrist entrance - a great improvement over the usual hanging method.

The one issue I have with this Mitt is that the wrist tension lock is hard to use when you have both Mitts on, so any adjustments will have to be made by either a hiking partner, or by removing the Mitt to properly work the adjustment.
