Eco-Friendly Mitts that are ideal for keeping your hands warm throughout the winter.
They've been redesigned with recycled fabrics to provide better, kinder protection than ever before. They're warm, waterproof, and breathable - and thanks to their Etip compatibility, you can even use them with your phone. This is especially handy when you need to answer a call or take photos of the landscape in cold conditions.
The DryVent insert means hands will stay dry from both sweat and snow. And engineered with wind-blocking WindWall technology, hands will remain protected without becoming clammy. Not only that, but Heatseeker Eco insulates against the cold and synthetic leather palms are soft yet durable.
For an added bonus, there's a nose wipe on the back and a wrist leash that keeps them firmly attached to you while you tear down the mountain.

The The North Face Women's Montana Ski Mittens - TNF Black has the following sustainability attributes...
Fluorinated DWR finishes make clothing waterproof by repelling water droplets. ‘PFCs’ is the broad term for all fluorocarbon chemicals, of which PFOS and PFOA are sub-groups. Different chemicals in this family have a varying number of carbon atoms, so C6 has six carbon atoms and C8 has eight. While the outdoor industry has moved away from C8 (or 'long chain') PFCs, C6 (short chain) PFCs are currently unbeatable in their waterproofing performance. They're considered less harmful to the environment than C8, but they have not been proven to be safe. PFCs are known as forever chemicals; once created they will never break down and are harmful to people and the planet. To read more about the chemistry related to PFCs, head here.
PFC-Free DWR uses alternative, biodegradable technologies that repels water from the surface of a fabric - such as Fjallraven's Greenland Wax. PFC-Free DWR coatings are water resistant enough for most daily activities, so if you don’t need a highly technical waterproof, consider a PFC-Free garment instead.
By recycling fabrics, we are not only stopping extra waste heading to landfill but also reducing the need for virgin fabrics to be created. Recycled fabrics can be anything from recycled polyester to recycled cotton and where recycled cotton is used, it's often offcuts from factory floors that would otherwise end up in landfill.
This brand ensures that the factories they use have been third party audited but are not specifically partnered with a Non-Profit Organisation. This will be either BSCI (Business Social Compliance Initiative) or SMETA (Sedex Members Ethical Trade Audit), which are social auditing methologies and reports but are not an accreditation. This means the brand has sourced factories who have passed an audit, so their worker rights, environmental impact and social compliance is up to scratch.
