The Astis Shackleton Mitten celebrates Anglo Irish polar explorer Ernest Shackleton, who brought his crew to safety after shipwrecking on an expedition in Antarctica. Whether your winter adventures cover arctic poles or your nearest ski hill, the time tested design and materials combined with modern high tech performance of the Shackleton glove will keep your hands warm and protected. This versatile waterproof glove can withstand the most frigid temperatures while wicking and breathing well enough to wear on sunnier spring snow days. Soft Polartec Thermal Pro High Loft insulation provides a high level of warmth without bulk while wicking sweat away and drying quickly. The suede leather provides a high level of all natural protection against the elements and silicon injected into the leather during the tanning process optimizes waterproofing. The gauntlet cuff slides over jacket sleeves and fits snugly enough to seal snow out without the need for straps or cords. The Native American inspired glove design and hand stitched beaded Celtic symbol give this glove distinctive and timeless style that's meant to last a lifetime.
