Helly Hansen didn't beat around the bush when it named the women's Waterproof Winter Mitten. With a name like that, you know just what you're getting, but how Helly got there is still worth talking about. It made the WWM that sounds snappier, we think from tough synthetic fabric, covered the palm with a grippy material, and laminated it all to a Helly Tech membrane that keeps water and snow out without causing sweat to build up and turn your fingers cold and soggy. There's also a generous amount of Primaloft Gold synthetic insulation, so your pinkies won't freeze solid when you're on the slopes. A drawcord cuff makes sure snow doesn't sneak down into your sleeves. Helly Hansen finished the WWM off with a pre shaped design, so you'll have an easy time gripping ski poles, sled ropes, shovel handles, and whatever other winter gear comes to hand.
