The Storm Mitts are waterproof, windproof and really well insulated. They are designed and built to withstand the cold, wet weather encountered in the mountains year-round.
With its hydrophobic insulation and Porelle® waterproof inserts, our versatile Women’s Storm Glove is built to excel during fast hikes, strenuous scrambles and everyday downpours.
The Women’s Storm Glove is supremely tough and protective. It features a ripstop nylon outer shell with a waterproof and breathable Porelle® Dry microporous membrane for a feeling of perfect dryness during active mountain sport. The new glove also uses waterproof Porelle® inserts, sandwiched between the shell and the lining, to increase storm protection without compromising its capacity to wick away sweat. Stratus™ polyester sheet insulation delivers four-season warmth while preserving dryness, even in the wet, and a DWR coating adds an extra waterproof finish. Other practical mountain features include a simple drawcord cuff closure and a reinforced polyurethane palm with dexterous, highly textured grip.
With a pre-curved fit and a weight of just 129g, our easy-carry Women’s Storm Glove provides year-round wet-weather comfort, both on and off the mountain.
Rab's 2020 Womens Storm Gloves have a Porelle lining making them waterproof while the insulation comes from synthetic Stratus material Rab have used in a number of their jackets. The design and fabrics used in the Storm Mitt make them ideal for the cold, wet conditions you'd expect to encounter in the hills and mountains of Britain. This updated version is significantly lighter in weight than the previous model while the use of Stratus insulation is an upgrade in terms of both warmth and weight. The soft leather palms improve grip and the reinforcements improve durability massively.
They can be a bit of a struggle to get your hands back in when you've got cold and wet but this is the same as most other gloves. They do stay warm with the Stratus insulation even when you've got them wet from putting wet hands in them repeatedly which is a big plus during the winter.
