UOG TOP PICK - Rab Xenon Mitts - Super lightweight mitts with an amazingly small packsize - We've singled out Rab Xenon Mitts as they provide an amazing lightweight, super packable layer. The warmth to weight is ideal for an emergency layer to keep your hands warm and protected. It helps that they are also nice and comfortable too!
The Xenon Mitts compliment the range by providing a superbly insulated, lightweight glove. Top quality materials and straightforward design have lead to a fantastic mitt.
Superlight and packable insulated mitt using Pertex® Quantum fabrics & PrimaLoft® Insulation. Soft microfleece lining.
The Xenon Mitt is a superlight and packable insulated mitt, using Pertex® Quantum fabrics & PrimaLoft® Insulation and featuring a soft microfleece lining.
Superlight and packable, the Xenon Mitt punches far above its weight. A durable Pertex® Quantum outer is used to protect PrimaLoft® Gold Insulation for welcome warmth. A soft microfleece lining makes these mitts comfortable next to your skin.
Packing away into their own stuff sack the Xenon Mitts are perfect for less strenuous mountain activities, or throwing in your daypack, just in case.
Rab's Xenon Mitts are one of the most comfortable pair of mitts I've ever used. The warmth to weight ratio is amazing, as you'd expect with top quality PrimaLoft Gold Insulation, with these mitts (weighing just 64g for the large size) and they have worked really well in some bitterly cold conditions. The mitts are thin enough to be dexterous which allows you to do more than usual in a mitt. However, there is no touch screen compatibility so you do a lot of taking off and putting back on if you need to use a smart phone or touchscreen GPS.
They have a simple elasticated cuff which I think works well enough. The palms have a durable PU covering which in creases grip but remains soft to touch. They also come with a small stuff sack so you can store them in your pocket or pack easily when they are not being used.
